Well its a six speed but fun fun fun to drive.

Mazda Speed 3

Let the fun begin! Under the Mazdaspeed3's hood lurks a turbocharged 2.3 liter inline four-cylinder motor that produces 263 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque to drive the front wheels. It's the same motor that powers the 2006 Mazdaspeed6, here mated to a slick-shifting six-speed manual transmission with a perfectly balanced clutch. The gearing is spaced closely from one through four, giving you lots of driving options. If you want out and out performance, you can run the revs up higher before shifting and shift through the gears like a drag racer. During relaxed daily driving or in traffic, sufficient torque is available in second and third to keep shifting to a minimum.
