  • Both the Mazdaspeed 3 and Impreza WRX are faster and handle better than the average juiced-up compact. That's what sets them apart from.

    In my same price range I have found several mazdaspeed 3's and was wondering if anyone has driven both our has owned both. How do they.

    Fact! Initially, Mazda was called Toyo Kogyo. Rebranding was held not so long ago, in 1984. The name is taken in honor of Zoroastrian wisdom god Ahura Mazda.

    The Mazda Speed 3 is like paying buying a WRX but not getting the AWD WRX the obvious choice, or is a FWD car with snow tires sufficient?.

    BB code is On. I havn't driven a WRX extensively though so I can't say how it compares. To complete the package, Mazda installs upgraded gauges and black leather sports seats in every car. I havent aced a STI on a straight, but the thing corners like its made to drift.

    Forget the trunk monkey, check out trash pandas. GM Designer Brian Baker. I've decided to get the WRX. Test drove all 3 and enjoyed the WRX the most. The car was just fun to drive and seemed to be the most powerful of the trio. The shifting was responsive and the steering was not too heavy or too light. Am I making the right choice here? I bought a WRX back in June. The shift action is more direct than the GTI and I'd say best in class. It has very short gearing and a lot of torque.

    This means that the FWD is very easily overwhelmed by the power. Expect lots of tire spin or TC intervention. From a roll, it's a dream and I wouldn't line up my WRX against one on the highway. Electric power steering is twitchy and lifeless. There is no exhaust sound and the intake resonator sounds asthmatic and actually worse than the soundaktor in the GTI. Overall, it gets my pick if you are ok with FWD. The GTI is a car I almost bought. Then I drove the Subaru The GTI is so comfortable and quiet.

    If you are looking for a car that you will love to sit inside of for long periods of time, buy this car. If you want a car that will whisper in your ear " drive me" then pick any other turbo hatch. The styling is very reserved and everything about it is classy aside from the plaid seats. Handling is not particularly sporty, power is linear and lacking. You have no idea the car is approaching redline. I found myself on the limiter a couple of times because everything is so quiet and linear.

    Not much of any torque steer to be found. The fuel economy is the same, price is close, interior is almost as bad, car is the same size and styling is similar. This doesn't have the traction issues the ST has because of the limited power in 1st and 2nd gear. I'd rather have tire spin than this. I didn't fall in love with this car. Get the Focus if you're content with FWD. WRX doesn't have the most power or the best brakes takes 2 to 4 feet longer to stop from 60mph than the others.

    But it makes up for it in traction and character. It's a clunky car and the interior is shitty. When you're in it and actually driving it, you understand. I feel connected to it. The steering has better feedback than all the other cars except the Mazda.

    The shifter feels like it's actually connected to stuff. You feel the car moving under you. It doesn't have any shortage of traction. The TC on it is very good and lets you get away with a bit of slip angle before gently roping you back in.

    The resale on these cars is very good, but don't expect to find much of a deal and leftovers particularly base models are very uncommon. I've never taken any of these cars to a track, so I cannot say anything about limit handling. Just that the GTI doesn't feel sporty enough. As someone who is looking to buy new in this price bracket and has been looking into all these cars, this post is insanely helpful.

    It's heavier so the 50 horse power doesn't do as much as you'd think. If you aren't on a track or a strip, you won't notice it in everyday use. It doesn't even feel AWD. Just like a very well planted FWD car. The upcoming Golf R will have hp or something. I believe this will make the car what it should have been in the first place. I'd say wait for the mk7 R. It will be a really good car. I will be buying my new car with Kansas City snow in mind.
