Yea, I'd expect low 8 second range for the 2.0L with a manual transmission.

The acceleration time can be found www.ajac.ca
2.0L is faster than heavier 2.3L
That site sure likes mazdas. lol. They gave most mazdas awards for best in its class.

n1smo, automatic nissan maxima wont do 0-60 in 5.9 seconds. It's more like 7 seconds. And G35 sedan auto will be like 6.1 or something around there. It's about second quicker than maxima probably because RWD.

??? A stock 02' Maxima auto GLE can pull 14.7 1/4 mile @ 93mph. My Max is not stock: Injen CAI, Cattman Y-Pipe, Cattman B-pipe w/ stock muffler (nice and quiet).

According to www.ajac.ca, the Mazda 6i with 2.3L engine is a full second faster than the Mz3 with the 2.3L, despite the 6 weighing a few hundred pounds more.

Something very funny about their Mz3 times. Especially considering that Car & Driver got very different results in their tests.

Nope, both model are quick compared to the competition (other compacts) . Just quoting acceleration times from cartests. :D

where does it say on www.ajac.ca that the 2.0 is faster???
i tried to find it, but couldn't

it doesn't make sense, (30kg + 12hp +15lb ft = slower)???

You people don't know what you're talking about.

The fastest car on the road is the 1995 Toyota Tercel. It does 0-40km/h faster than 80% of the cars on the road because it tops out at 40km/h in 1st gear. Now that's FAST. I remember racing everyone in it until 40 and winning, of course after that it's game over but whatever. I could beat people 10 feet to the next stop sign!

Sounds great when trying to merge in bumper to bumper traffic. :)
