Mazdaspeed3 will return to the lineup in 2016, may receive AWD system

Article by Christian A., on August 28, 2014

If you didn’t notice already, you should take a look at Mazda’s latest offering, the Mazda2, Mazda3, CX-5 and Mazda6. As you can see, the vehicles produced by the Japanese car manufacturer are getting better and better, while the new ‘Kodo’ design language continues to impress.

According to the latest reports, Mazda is not working on the next-generation Mazda3, which will arrive as a 2017 model year and will be launched with a new design in the second half of 2017.

What’s more interesting is that with the new model, the Mazdaspeed3 high-performance version will return to the lineup. Power will come from a 2.5-liter SkyActiv engine that will generate more than 300 hp.

Regarding the design, the new model will follow the same recipe: unique front fascia, a more aggressive body kit, bigger wheels, high-performance tires, larger brakes and a sporty interior with new bucket seat and a new steering wheel.

Reports indicate that Mazda may offer an all-wheel-drive system for the Mazdaspeed3 to take on other Japanese sports cars such as the Subaru WRX Type S or the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.
