Speed Highway's design and layout is very similar to that of
Empire City from and Sonic Unleashed Star Light Zone from , including towering buildings and skyscrapers, long, winding highways and several street signs and neon billboards with references to other characters.
Sonic the Hedgehog This version of Speed Highway does not include the "At Dawn" section like the original version, but the background in Act 2 changes to sunrise after passing through the skyscraper section.
Despite this, one of Classic Sonic's Challenge Act missions takes place around early-to-mid-morning (dawn). While Modern Sonic runs down the skyscraper mid-way through the level, Classic Sonic appears to go inside the same building, as they both share the same features.
The remnants of the actual roads from Speed Highway are used in the battle against Perfect Chaos, just like in the original
. Sonic Adventure This is the only stage in the Dreamcast era not to be the beginning stage in its original game.
The poster of Chao in Space.
Chao in Space billboards in this stage, multiple Sonic characters are listed as appearing in the film. Some characters' names were misspelled.
The fact that Cream appears in Speed Highway might be a reference to her cameo appearance in
. Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut While the cars in the original Speed Highway were modern designs, the cars in this version are all Volkswagen-esque vehicles.
In the hub world, just behind Cream and Cheese, there's a "Chao in Space 4" movie poster.
The gameplay in the original Speed Highway is completely in 3D. However, in
Sonic Generations, the perspective switches between 3D and 2D. The same applies to City Escape, Seaside Hill, and Crisis City. Both Sonics seem to go through Speed Highway at different times of the day. Classic Sonic seems to run through the highway just after dusk, while Modern Sonic runs through it during the last minutes of night to the beginning of dawn.
During said mission, the buildings and skyscrapers slightly resemble the same buildings and skyscrapers of
Empire City in the daytime.
Vector the Crocodile makes at least two cameos in this level; first as a big, green neon sign reading "Club Vector", and second as a road sign showing the direction to "Vector Avenue". Speed Highway was one of the last stages to be shown off before the game was released.
The music in act two changes when Sonic is running down the skyscraper, when he is on the ground again it changes back. This only happens when the default music is being played.
