Hot Hatch / 34 Comments

Will join a re-engineered Mazda3 that will arrive at the same time.

Ever since the debut of the current Mazda3 in 2014, fans of the discontinued Mazdaspeed3 have been hoping for a swift revival of the performance-oriented model. Now, according to a report in Automotive News, the next Zoom Zoom 3 is on the way, and it will be a part of a complete re-engineering of the model that Mazda is planning for 2017. The Mazda3 will receive new sheetmetal and a revamped Skyactiv platform. The Mazdaspeed3 will of course be adorned with a plethora of performance gear.

Expect unique touches in the form of a new front end, body kit, larger wheels and high performance tires, worthy of its hot-hatch status, while power will come from a turbocharged 2.5-liter Skyactiv engine, producing over 300 horsepower in this model. With a Mazdaspeed2 also reportedly in the works, this could be the start of a whole new zoomy family from Mazda.
