MAZDA3 Speed Rating

What Is the Tire Speed Rating on a Mazda3?

Often misunderstood, tire speed rating is the maximum speed your tires can safely maintain over time. Generally speaking, the higher your speed rating, the better control and braking power you’ll have when moving at highway speeds.

This is why it’s important to purchase tires that match what’s listed inside your owner’s manual. You can also find this information by looking at the 12-digit code on your tire’s sidewall. Typically, the last letter of the code will tell you the tire’s speed rating.

For best results, pair your Mazda3 with tires that have a “V” speed rating. These tires are engineered to withstand speeds up to 149 MPH. You might also find that tires with a “T” or “H” rating work well with your model.

If you have any questions or need help with picking out the right tires, our Mazda Tire Center is always ready to lend you a hand. We can quickly pair you with the right set of tires so that you can hit the streets with confidence.

Mazda3 Performance Specs

Now that you know how fast the Mazda3 can travel, you’re probably wondering how it achieves such impressive feats. Engineered with Skyactiv® Technology throughout, this sporty sedan perfectly blends raw emotion with precision design.

Open the hood to find a Skyactiv®-G 2.5L 4-cylinder engine. Able to produce 186 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque, it employs special variable valve timing to take advantage of each pulse-quickening RPM.

When taking on sharp corners, the standard Skyactiv-Vehicle Dynamics with G-Vectoring Control Plus subtly adjusts torque and braking power to take pressure off your wheels. The result is an unquestionably smooth drive over a wide selection of roads.

Mazda3 Efficiency

Despite its ability to keep up with the bigger dogs, the Mazda3 still eats like a small one. To help keep you out on the road longer, the engine is mated to a Skyactiv®-Drive 6-speed electronically controlled sport automatic transmission.

This special technology not only makes city travel feel effortless, it also helps the Mazda3 earn an EPA-estimated 26/35/30 city/highway/combined MPG.* Add a massive 13.2-gallon fuel tank, and you’re set for all-day fun.
