Retaining the striking looks of the Mazda3 hatchback, the Mazda3 TCR combines the striking KODO - Soul of Motion design of the road car with the purposeful stance and width of a race car.

Styled by Mazda Design America in Irvine, California, the designers spent countless hours ensuring that the competition Mazda3 combines aerodynamics and dimensions compliant with TCR regulations and stunning looks that blend seamlessly with the clean lines and sporty shape of the standard Mazda3.

The Mazda3 TCR is powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder 350bhp TCR compliant engine that is matched to a six-speed paddle shift competition transmission. Developed by North Carolina based Long Road Racing, the constructors of the Global Mazda MX-5 Cup car, the Mazda3 TCR is homologated to compete in any of the 36 TCR-sanctioned championships around the globe. Long Road Racing will provide sales and customer support for the Mazda3 TCR, which will be available to privateers in 2020.

Alongside its flagship prototype sportscar racing programme in the IMSA series with Mazda Team Joest, Mazda North America's motorsport programme boasts one of the most comprehensive motorsport development ladder systems in the world: The Mazda Road to 24 programme offers a number of scholarships to advance drivers up the racing ladder, starting with the Global Cup MX-5 series and culminating with Mazda Team Joest. The Mazda3 TCR adds a new rung to this ladder.
