2013 Mazda MazdaSPEED3 Overview

For those looking for oodles of performance and power on a budget, the 2013 Mazda Mazdaspeed3 strikes a great balance of affordability and fun.

The Mazdaspeed3 is the high-performance cousin to the Mazda3 compact. This hot-hatch (in fact, it only comes as a five-door) competes with performance focused cars like the Ford Focus RS and the Volkswagen GTI. For 2013, the Mazdaspeed3 gets a few key updates including black finish on the side mirrors and the rear and a standard USB port. The Technology Package now offers HD Radio, text-message playback with voice-activated reply, and Pandora integration.

There are a few exterior touches that distinguish the Mazdaspeed3 from less the less focused Mazda3 it’s based on, including dual tailpipes, a functional hood scoop, and the unique 18-inch wheels that for 2013 get a new gunmetal finish.

For a car to be rightfully called a hot-hatch, it’s got to have the performance to back it up and that starts with what’s under the hood. The Mazdaspeed3 earns its designation with a 263-horsepower, turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 280 pounds-feet of torque. A six-speed manual is the sole transmission option. That’s a lot of twist to send through a front-wheel drive car, so a limited slip differential is thankfully standard. Even so, under hard acceleration be ready to feel some torque steer. Fuel economy ratings check in at 18/25 mpg city/highway.

Inside, the 2013 Mazdaspeed3 gets a healthy amount of red contrast stitching that matches its sporty soul as well as a mix of leather and cloth-trimmed seating. Standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, steering wheel mounted audio controls, and a USB/iPod input, while a 5.8-inch touchscreen navigation system and HD radio are optional.

Four-wheel-disc antilock brakes, an electronic stability system, and six airbags round out the standard safety features.

Fun to drive with one of the best horsepower-to-price ratios around, the 2013 Mazda Mazdaspeed3 will zoom-zoom straight into your heart.

Sorry... the 2013 Mazda MazdaSPEED3 is no longer being sold as new.
