All nothing more than pure speculation at this point, though. Lots of "should" and "could", but no definitely *will* or *when*.

Fingers crossed.

Yes. 300+hp, AWD, 2.5 SkyActiv G or D with twin turbo. This is the most recent and widespread rumor. It feels "almost" confirmed at this point to me. Mazda has already made a 2.5 SkyActiv with twin turbo work for this application so it's kind of expected at this point. Question is (for N. America) will it be gas or diesel and will it be 2016 or 2017.
@mod s
We should start a pool on how many threads about this nextgen MS3 we will see created. Maybe one of you should merge all these threads and make it a sticky so that hopefully people see there is already one before there are tons. I think there are 4 or so now.

A diesel Speed... Interesting. I admit that thought had never occurred to me. And Mazda might be the one to do it - they tend to go their own way when it comes to drivetrains, after all. A turbo diesel would really get the torque up there, and AWD would help get it to the ground in a controlled fashion.

One downside to going AWD, though - it puts you in a whole different league, conceptually speaking. Instead of worrying about the Civic Si or the VW GTI, an AWD turbo Speed3 would invite comparisons to the WRX or even the Audi S3 & S4.

It's quite a gamble either way - Diesel, AWD, or both - but Mazda isn't known for being exactly shy when it comes to taking bold chances.

If they do this I'll be picking one up as soon as I could. If not then the regular 3 will be supercharged. I'll be crossing my fingers for an AWD Speed3. But, I'll assume all is speculation/rumors until Mazda officially confirms
