    This is stupid. The Mazda 3 Turbo is a "City Car", not a performance model. The Mazda is carrying an SUV engine, not a performance engine. It tops out it power just after 4,000 RPM. This is NOT a performance car like the other two. Silly.

    WHY did you include the Mazda 3 Turbo against these two specialty models? The 2021 Mazda 3 is NOT considered a specialty model like the R and the WRX. It's just a plain drivers car. This is NOT the Mazda Speed. This is NOT a performance turbo engine by ANY means. You're confusing your viewers into thinking these cars are in the same categories.

    Everyone is “happy” the Mazda 3 Turbo AWD is around but nobody wants to buy it. 😔 People who want a powerful family sedan have the AWD Subaru WRX or fast Honda Accord 2.0T. People who want a fun manual transmission hot hatch have the loud Hyundai Veloster N or stellar Honda Civic Type R. Anybody who needs an automatic transmission lukewarm hatch/sedan can get the Volkswagon Jetta Gti/Gli, Hyundai Veloster Turbo/Elantra N-Line, or Kia Forte GT. Anyone who wants the most affordable fun performance per dollar can look for a base Subaru BRZ, Honda Civic Si, or Nissan 370Z.

    The fact that the Mazda was on winter tires is even more embarrassing for the other two.

      @John Ryan Agreed, they are inferior in handling situations, braking situations, or traction-limited acceleration situations, but this was a non-traction-limited acceleration situation. If the Mazda was somehow getting excessive wheelspin on launch with its winter tires, one could argue they were handicapping its acceleration in this test, but there was no indication that occurred, nor would I expect it from an automatic AWD car on dry pavement in this power range.

    • John Ryan

      @Mike Webb winter tires definitely are noticeably inferior on dry and wet pavement. This, is especially true when the temperatures are over around 50 degrees F (10 degrees C).
