True Red Experience
By Rich S on


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


I had the car for about two weeks and have driven it 800 super fun miles. It is a true pocket rocket in all sense of the word, yet it has four doors, large luggage capacity, super tight suspension, a turbo that is willing to please and best of all it is affordable. This car truly is fun to drive especially in windy roads. The car handles almost as good as my mid-engine MR2. The oversteer is present as I expected with the 263 hp front wheel, but it is manageable. The shifting gets some getting used to, truly awkward, but you tend to forget about it when the turbo kicks in. This car also feels at home in city driving as it is very nimble and responsive and fairly easy to drive.

Best Features

Horsepower and sports car suspension. 5 passengers, aggressive stance, great exhaust tone, affordable price, large luggage capacity and a family pleaser. I can't wait for the Mazdaspeed upgrade which will boast it another 35 hp.

Worst Features

A sunroof would be nice!, shifting can be made to work easier, intercooler under hood collects leaves during the fall season.
