It's a Rocketship
By J Barr on


2007 Mazda Mazdaspeed 3 Grand Touring 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


This is an "Oh my gosh" car when you drive it. It's hard to believe that a front wheel drive car could be so fast. And it handles like a sports car. This car put a smile on my face that hasn't left in the 4 weeks I've owned it. The Speed 3 is just a lot of fun to drive. The car feels solid and very well built. The Grand Touring model has many amenities including rain sensing wipers, automatic headlights with height adjustment, great traction control, plenty of storage, and very nice styling lines. It is a bargain compared with it's competition and ranks higher in most comparison tests. 0 to 60 in 5.8 seconds and 155 mph top speed is accurate and among the best in class. Zoom zoom.

Best Features

Great 2.3 DOHC supercharged motor. The seats are comfortable and the bolsters work well to keep you in your seat. Interior and exterior styling are the nicest I've seen. Performance and handling are top notch. The tilt-telescopic wheel is a joy to have.

Worst Features

Automatic door locking when car is put in gear. Ashtray should be replaced with coin holder. Moonroof option needed. Better gas mileage would be nice. There is not a lot that this needs to be a perfect small car.
