Yes, the car nuts at AxleGeeks are aware that the Mazdaspeed 3 is not technically the base model of the Mazda 3 (which also made this list, thus the disclaimer), but it is included nonetheless since Edmunds classifies the Mazdaspeed 3 as an entirely different model. Reviewers said the turbocharged engine provides ample power without sacrificing fuel economy, and the upgraded suspension made for excellent handling on both road and track. On top of its driving dynamics, many reviewers said the car was comfortable and roomy enough to carry passengers and cargo.
