Both 2.0L and 2.5L gasoline engines are confirmed for the 2010 Mazda3 and the Mazdaspeed exemplar could item a turbocharged account of one of these, or thrust with the existing 2.3L powder. While actual glasses for the car are hard to come by, there also rumors that the engine in the Mazdaspeed version could be based on the 300hp (224kW) turbocharged 2.5L Duratec element destined for the impending Ford Focus RS.

Differentiating the Mazdaspeed from the standard Mazda3 array will be a large hood dipper for the turbo, oversized air intakes in the front jumbo, a rear diffuser, large-diameter twin-exhaust pipes, and a plump rear wing.
