Japanese automakers have ascended the auto industry’s ladder to become some of the most popular and consumer friendly in the whole world.

Mazda, specifically, has etched its name in automotive lore by specializing in small, sporty, and quick cars that offer drivers not only a thrilling experience, but also top-notch efficiency and scalpel-like precision handling. Although the company has never produced cars meant to compete with the likes of Ferrari or Aston Martin, consumers have looked toward the Mazda line for affordable and efficient options that still offer speed and fun.

Today, we take a look at the 15 fastest vehicles Mazda has ever produced.

3. Mazda 3 MPS

In what is perhaps the most surprising entry on this list, the Mazda 3 has another variant that managed to reach the fourth spot. The Mazda 3 MPS was able to accomplish a 0-60 time trial a full half-second faster than the 6 MPS. In fact, the 3 MPS was able to do it in 6.1 seconds, thanks to a 257-horsepower, 2.3-liter turbocharged engine. Improvements over the standard Mazda 3 include a stiffer and lower suspension, as well as some precision steering tweaks. For Mazda’s non-sports car line, the Mazda 3 MPS offers the most in the way of quickness.
