HOTTEST WEAPON IN MAZDA'S ARSENAL
The 2011 MAZDASPEED3 uses cues from the Nagare design language with swift and flowing lines on the hood and along the sides, which gives it a look of constant motion. You can instantly recognize this machine pulling up with its lower air dam and round halogen fog lights that perfectly frame the fierce 5-point grille. The 18-inch alloy wheels with low-profile performance tires are a sure eye catcher and help make your hatch stand out from the crowd.
Mazda has designed elements of the MAZDASPEED3 such as the front bumper, Bi-level rear spoiler, and the air scooped hood that adds to the cars design but also acts as a cool air intake that feeds the turbocharger's intercooler for a denser charge of air. All of these custom additions add to the extensive aerodynamics that makes this car so stable, stylish and grounded. The MAZDASPED3 offers four colors to choose from including Velocity Red Mica, Celestial Blue Mica, Liquid silver Metallic, and Black Mica.
This is a well built machine that is designed to impact all of your senses to feel total excitement. Before the racing-inspired engine revs up, you will feel the energy surround you with the numerous innovative interior design features. Settle into bolstered front sport bucket seats with exclusive MAZDASPEED3 fabric with black base color highlighting a red design with red contrast stitching. This radiant signature stitching is also located on the 3-spoke leather wrapped steering wheel, black leather-wrapped shift knob with ring and arm rests.
Since the MAZDASPEED3 was born and raised from racers, it would only be appropriate to be loaded down with race-inspired features like the aluminum-alloy pedals, unique MAZDASPEED3 floor mats with metal scuff plates, door sills, and a turbo boost gauge between the electroluminescent gauges.
SPICE UP YOUR COMMUTE
It can get hot with all the electrifying high tech gear in this sharp-witted hatchback. Luckily the MAZDASPEED3 has installed a Dual-Zone Automatic Climate control system that will automatically adjust cabin temps, airflow and fan mode so that you and your passenger can ride in custom comfort while enjoying the latest technology.
Power Door Locks with an auto lock mode will secure you into the car once a preset speed is reached. Driver-centric controls located on the 3 spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel make staying in control as simple as 1-2-3. The controls that are mounted at fingertip reach are for your audio system, cruise control, and Bluetooth.
TECH SAVVY, A.K.A. MAZDASPEED3 TECH PACKAGE
The MAZDASPEED3 offers an impressive Tech package that will make your drive less complicated and more focused, all while protecting with the perimeter alarm system. The Automatic Rain-Sensing Windshield Wipers will adjust speed and intermittence to keep up with the precipitation levels around you. This not only keeps your sight crystal clear but it allows you to stay focused on the road instead of the controls.
Mazda's Advanced Keyless Entry and Start System are also included in the MAZDASPEED Tech Package. You will be able to lock and unlock your doors and start your car. The Advanced Key utilizes a radio frequency within a 3-foot range of the vehicle to activate the range of features, whether it's in your pocket or pocketbook. Not only will it do those functions but it will automatically recognize you and save your driver's power seating position, if equipped with power seats equipped. You can start the car with one very easy push of a button to add a untouched feel of quality and luxury.

POWER OF 10
If you like your music real and loud, not just real loud, we have just the thing for you!

An in-dash 6-disc CD/MP3 changer is equipped to play your favorite tunes.

Also, a 6-month subscription to SIRIUS® comes with the SIRIUS Satellite Radio® that is included in the Tech Package.
AudioPilot® 2 - This technology offsets any unwanted external and road noises by automatically adjusting the audio levels to compensate.
SurroundStage® - This technology creates a sense of euphoria by putting you front and center to the listening stage. Unlike a home theater surround sound system, a car doesn't have a central listening area, so this technology compensates for that and is circuited to deliver that experience wherever you are seated.
THERE'S ROOM FOR EVERYTHING

PREMIUM TO ROCKET FUEL
Like going fast? So do we! Fast is exactly what you get with the 2011 MAZDASPEED3 that is loaded with a lightweight aluminum 2.3 Liter DOHC 16-valve Direct-Injection Spark Ignition (DISI) turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with Variable Valve Timing (VVT) and chain-driven dual overhead cams that generates 263 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. Whoa! With the Warner-Hitachi K04 turbocharger with air-to-air intercooler, the MAZDASPEED3 will flat out Zoom-Zoom! You get such a high level of boost from a standing start that the Mazda Advanced Torque System is equipped to help reduce torque steer to improve control. This turbocharged engine is made up of an aluminum-alloy block and cylinder with a forged steel crankshaft and connecting rods making it super lightweight.
Direct-Injection Spark Ignition (DISI) - This technology injects fuel directly into the combustion chamber which increases power and fuel economy and reduces emissions.
Variable Valve Timing (VVT) - This adjusts the intake valves to open in a certain sequence which increases power and efficiency.
Having the right gear at the right time is a key to putting that turbocharged engine to the pavement and seizing the streets. With the close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission and precise shifter featured in the 2011 MAZDASPEED3 you will always get it right and the Zoom-Zoom will take you away. This extreme, high-performance machine doesn't slack on fuel economy, earning an estimated 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. The 2011 MAZDASPEED3 sips Premium unleaded gasoline, but trust, it's definitely worth it.
HOLD THE ROAD, NOT YOUR BREATH
In terms of safety, Mazda pushes all the right buttons. Active safety features are equipped throughout the MAZDASPEED3 that is constantly watching out for you.
As soon as you take the wheel, a specially tuned Electro-Hydraulic Power Assist Steering (EHPAS) system steps in and assists you in maneuvering and handling. EHPAS delivers more assist during slower speeds to maximize maneuvering and less assist during highway speeds for improved control and greater stability.
The 2011 MAZDASPEED3 handles with great poise through every twist and turn with help from the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and Traction Control System (TCS). Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) adjusts throttle and brakes when over or under steer is detected to maintain stability during aggressive maneuvers. Traction Control System (TCS) detects loss of traction as soon as it happens and adjusts throttle to provide your drive wheels a better grip on the road and more secured acceleration in hazardous driving situations.
The MAZDASPEED3 have larger 12.6-inch vented front rotors to assist in alleviating heat faster for increased control. Mazda provides an Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) that pulses the brakes hundreds of times per second to help in preventing wheel lockup for a more confident and trustworthy stop. Also equipped is an Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) system that electronically monitors surrounding road conditions, brake pedal pressure and vehicle weight to decide exactly how much force needs to be utilized to the brakes, all while Brake Assist increases breaking pressure in emergency situations.
Mazda is serious about your safety, one way we show it, our advanced six airbag system. The standard driver and front passenger air bags are equipped with an intelligent deployment system to adjust to your seating position and weight to provide protection for head and chest. Standard front seat-mounted side-impact airbags are installed for added protection for chest and head areas. In the case of a side-impact collision, side air curtains are applied for protection to both front and outboard rear passengers.
Active front headrests are another great safety to have. During a rear impact, the headrest moves forward when you are pushed into the seatback, helping to reduce your head movement ultimately assisting in minimizing whiplash.
All-in-all, the MAZDASPEED3 received dual 5-star frontal and a 5-star driver's side crash test rating from the U.S. Governments national Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
