2010 Mazdaspeed3 0-60 is 5.2sec, is this accurate ??

This is a Motor Week Article from last year is this accurate. why would it be 5.2sec going from 0-60 for them and other articles say 6.2

I dont have a speed3, but with sticky tires and a strong launch 5.2 should be a realistic number.

Yea, 5.2 is very fast and crazy fast for a FWD car. I had a Ford Lightning that was quoted at 5.1, 0 - 60 and it felt like it. The mazda 3 I test drove was quick, but didnt make me say," WOW"
