Edmunds.com test Mazda 3 & Civic. Mazda does better than WRX STI in slalom test.

Link I found on Mazda's website. Comparing two economy cars. Performance of Mazda 3 out does Civic, but fuel economy of Civic is far superior. But look for the comments on handling. Edmunds.com compares Mazda 3 handling to that of the Subaru WRX STI on the 2nd page.


EDIT: I checked out the Mazda 3 on edmunds.com and the numbers don't match up. The 0-60 times and 60-0 ft are off, slower. Longer. Even though on Mazda's website they say a test performed by edmunds.com, I go directly to edmunds and I get slower times and fuel economy in the city dropped 1 mpg.

Mazdaspeed version of the Mazda 3 ($22-24,000) has a 2.3L direct injection turbocharged engine with a claimed 20/28 mpg. With 250hp and 280 ft lbs. of torque, an LSD and with the Mazda 3 weighing in at around 2800 lbs. I believe the Mazdaspeed version will be around or under 3000 lbs. Giving it a power to weight ratio of 12 lbs per hp. or better.
