Some people believe that Mazda might work on a new MazdaSpeed 3 and MazdaSpeed 6 models. While it will be nice to see a more powerful version of those models, it also does not make sense that Mazda would want to go down that path right now.
We know that the Mazda 3 and Mazda 6 sales have been going down this year which means people are actually losing interest in those model. While fitting them both with a more powerful powertrain might attract some attention, we do not think that it will be significant enough to help bring the sales numbers back up.
It has also been reported that Mazda is looking to climb up the Premium ladder and it that is true, going back to the Mazdaspeed 3 and Mazdaspeed 6 would not make sense right now.
There were rumors saying that the new engine saw under the hood of the Mazda CX-9, the 2.5-liter turbo four engine might be heading to the Mazda 3 and Mazda 6. What do you think?
