Quite fast, obviously. The stripes and spoilers kept it from being left in the smoke of your mazda.

On a side note, my GF has a 3... even she says it's slow and she's one of those that actually does the speed limit. Tho hers is auto of course :(.

A 2.3 liter engine + manual transmission is decently fast. Plus Mazda3 has very good handling

T, FTFY ;)

Honestly speaking, any new 2.3L engine is decently fast, especially when you are used to much older cars.
