Cox Mazda is Your Source for the Used Mazdaspeed3
Seeking a high-performance race-friendly car around Tampa but wanting to avoid the “brand new” price? Visit Cox Mazda in Bradenton and check out the Mazdaspeed3. This special version of the fan favorite Mazda3 has only been in production for a few years, but if you’re the kind of driver who is comfortable driving an amped up car without an amped price, this is certainly for you.
If you’re interested in the Mazdaspeed3, check our online used inventory; better yet, drop by our dealership and take a look around for yourself. These things move about as fast out of our lot as they do out of our inventory, though, so if you see one, act quickly!
We’ve got a brief overview of the vehicle for you, highlighting some particularly appealing features that have appeared over the tears, so you can know just what you could expect from a racer like this.
First Generation (2010 – Present)
Debuting back in 2010, the Mazdaspeed3 has already earned its fair share of fans. The first few models—2010 through 2012—had minimal changes to them, starting off with a 2.3L turbocharged four cylinder engine rated at 263 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque.
Thrust gets catapulted to the front wheels thanks to a six-speed manual transmission with limited slip differential. If you’re salivating a bit right now, we can sympathize. The Mazdaspeed3’s 0 to 60 mph time for the 2010 model was 6.3 seconds.
The 2013 Mazdaspeed3 sports that same trustworthy engine, too. After all, if it’s not broke, why try to fix it? Despite the high power ratings, the 2013 model still earns a respectable 25 highway mpg.
This unique Mazda3 is available in only one body style—hatchback—and only one trim level—Touring. Mazda drivers get all the bells and whistles they need in just one version of this racer. Some amenities include:
- Keyless entry
- Cruise control
- Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity
- Front sport seating
Some models do have a few add-ons, such as a 10-speaker Bose surround sound system or a built-in navigation system.
