Dunno if this car is in the States (but I'm sure it is):



50mph to 75mph in 3.5seconds in 3rd Gear,in forth just a tad more.Porche 911 3.6 seconds.
I read a review on this car and it looks like a real nice 4 Door Hatchie,what do you guys reckon?

They have been out in the UK now for about 2 years in standard form and they have had good reviews just them seem to be a bit underated TBH. Suppose being owned by Ford now puts a lot of Jap car fans off?!

They are making a Mazdaspeed 3 this year in the states. It uses the same turbo motor that the Mazdaspeed 6 uses. Just no AWD. I think it's like 263 HP. they claim a top speed of 155* mph. Not bad.

The Mazda 6 MPS appears to be underwhelming from all of the reviews I've read, it's a nice powerful tourer but not a sportscar like a WRX or an Evo. More of a BMW competer.

I kind of expect the 3 to give the same general impression.

By the way, the Ford Focus RS bettered that acceleration figure 4 years ago. ;)

The Motor is a direct injection turbo making 260hp ish and just a bit more torque. Its the most kick ass motor Mazda has put out ever. Its got all kinds of traction control goodies and its a five door.

I love it.

ms6 is a pig, none of the respectable car magazines liked it. they are all raving about the MS3 though. You guys that are putting buslengths on these cars have to remember that this thing is heavy...it has 4 door AND a hatch. The ride quality WAY surpasses anything we drive (cheap old hondas)....its a great car.
