New York Wrap-Up: Mazdaspeed 3

Mazda rolled out its 'speed version of the Mazda3, which it launched in Geneva for Europe as the Mazda MPS. It's got the same 2.3-liter DISI turbo mill pushing nearly 250 hp to the front wheels (not all the wheels, like on its Mazdaspeed6 sibling). Does the VW GTI have anything to worry about, other than whether the Fast will turn feral and tear up its plaid seats?
