"It's a total blast. It's also a total bargain."
— Winding Road | January 2010
"Did we say it's quick, it's fast, and it's relatively cheap? Take note: If your knuckles drag when you walk, you probably won't like it."

"...the Mazdaspeed 3 follows the standard formula for a modern-day pocket rocket. It's quick and has gobs of power and excellent steering for a Saturday drive in the woods. Plus, it gets good fuel economy, which is now up to 23 mpg overall. That mix is why enthusiasts like it."
"No trouble passing the fun-to-drive portion of the test herewhat the MS3 lacks in subtlety it makes up for in pure pleasure."
— Winding Road | June 2010
"Mazda has created a kind of front-drive muscle car, complete with smoking burnouts at will, lewd squirming out of hard corners, and a soundtrack loud enough to make instant enemies at stoplights."
"The second-generation MAZDASPEED3 wraps a flashy new body around its awesome turbocharged powerplant."
— RoadandTrack.com | March 2009
"The 2010 Mazdaspeed 3 is a complete car. But its success won't ever be measured by instruments that's not how Mazda USA does things. Instead, it will be measured by feel, by soul and by passion mdash; because those are all characteristics of a good sports car."
— Edmunds' Inside Line | August 2009
"In 2007, the MAZDASPEED3 was the most powerful front-driver under $25,000. Yet, it was the deft combination of power and utility that made the hatchback irresistible. The 2010 MAZDASPEED3, fortunately, relies on much of the previous generation's hardware—engine included—but gains Mazda's smiley-face aesthetics, an updated suspension and driveline, and reworked electronics to improve upon an already stout platform."
— MotorTrend.com | April 2009
"If you like aggressive Nagare styling and turbo hot hatch power you're going to love the 2010 MAZDASPEED3."
— Jalopnik | April 2009
"Indeed, this affordable little drivers' car series seems to have it all."
— MotorWeek | May 2010
"For 2010, Mazda appears to have only improved on the MAZDASPEED3's strong points."
"... the Speed 3's exterior styling seems intended to stimulate the salivary glands of the fast and the furious."
