What’s the Mazda 3 hatchback’s top speed?

I’m getting ready to buy a Mazda 3. I know they’re pretty quick little cars, but I was wondering if there’s a speed difference for a sedan vs. a hatchback. What’s the Mazda 3 hatchback’s top speed?

You’re definitely right about the
Mazda 3
being quick, but when it comes to top speed, you’re actually not going to see a difference between the hatchback and sedan configurations. The Mazda 3 hatchback and the Mazda 3 sedan both have a top speed of 134 miles per hour.
What does affect your Mazda 3’s top speed is the engine specs.
offers 3 different four-cylinder engines for the 3:
  • 155-hp 2.0L
  • 186-hp 2.5L
  • 250-hp turbocharged 2.5L
The turbocharged four-cylinder is where you get your 134-mph top speed, and it also offers
  • 320 lb-ft of torque @ 2500 rpm
  • 0-60 mph in 5.6 seconds
  • 14.1-second quarter mile
