The 2014 Mazdaspeed3 — What to Expect
Rumors about the 2014 Mazdaspeed3 are on the tip of everyone’s tongues around Tampa, and, while details are scarce, all of us at Cox Mazda in Bradenton are happy to speculate a bit. The Mazdaspeed3 is a compact hatchback that provides a surprising among of power — the 2013 model’s turbocharger produces 263 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. It’s sporty, stylish, and versatile, so it’s absolutely no surprise that people are looking to the 2014 model. Let’s consider what the future will hold.
It’s possible that we could expect a redesign, or some kind of refresh, as the current generation has been active for three model years as of the 2013 model (the first-generation Mazdaspeed3 was only active for three model years). It’s speculated that any redesign would likely hearken back to the vehicle’s first-generation roots. This would likely entail lowering the vehicle a bit and revising the front fascia.
Perhaps the bigger rumor is that the next Mazdaspeed3 will take advantage of the automaker’s SkyActiv technology — this engine technology, of course, is built around providing peppy performance alongside impressive efficiency, and its implementation would go even further to making the 2014 model a must-have. It’s speculated that the next Mazdaspeed3’s engine could provide as much as 300 hp. There are also whispers of a possible diesel powertrain being made available as an option.
This is one of the leaders of the so-called “hothatch” categories, and it’s thrilling to think about what the future holds for this exciting vehicle!
