Mazdaspeed3 Expected in 2016, AWD Possible



New details on a successor to the current Mazdaspeed3 are starting to emerge.


According to a recent report, Mazda will give its compact car an overhaul for the 2017 model year that will include new sheet metal in the second half of 2016. The model will also be underpinned by a revamped version of the carís current SkyActiv platform and will coincide with the return of the high-performance Mazdaspeed3 variant. It is likely that the new Mazdaspeed3 will be powered by a turbocharged 2.5-liter Skyactiv engine, which will make an appearance in the redesigned CX-9 launching the same year.

SEE ALSO: Mazdaspeed3 Rumored for 2016 with 320 HP, AWD

Rumor has it that the Japanese automaker might give the Mazdaspeed3 all-wheel drive, making it a possible competitor to the Suburu WRX STI and helping fill a void in the sports car market, especially now that the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution is being killed. The company hasnít made an official announcement yet about the car, but a report from Automotive News suggests the powertrain in the new Mazdaspeed3 will make roughly 300 hp.

This should make for a interesting line-up in the near future with the MAZDASPEED 3, WRX, possible last year for the EVO and DODGE making that AWD DART SRT...http://jalopnik.com/the-dodge-dart-s...ter-1572339997

Is this info just from the old Autoweek posting about this? I haven't seen anything new in months about the next MS3.

that's a different article than I have seen for once, lol. But I don't think those numbers add up. While I hope it is awd and 300+hp/tq I do not see that going for anything less than 30k and realistically 35k. Just look at the wrx. 260hp/tq, AWD and those are selling for 30k plus. The basic wrx is so hard to come by because dealers are ordering nothing but limited with 5k worth of accessories.

I think the original draw to the speed3's was the performance to cost ratio. If they up the performance and price it will make them harder to sell.

It's a shame though as I will need a new car by August.

I'd be interested in hearing confirmation, manual only? 6 speed auto? both? or something new for a tranny?

If the past is any indication, I'm guessing manual only. Will be curious to see many speeds and the ratios.

I couldn't wait anymore and got a 15. With all the rumors I am thinking it will be priced out of my range anyway, kind of hope it is so I do not regret buying the 15.

Seems like a good bet. And, the gen3 Mz3 is already such a well-designed car worth driving in the here and now, so... no regrets if/when the MPS3 comes out.

I bought an iGT 15 for the sole purpose of having a reliable car and strong tradein once the MS3 comes out. Of course it's going to be the second year so they can work out the kinks.
