Hot Mazda3 MPS to rival cars such as Golf R32

With its compact, lightweight body and substantial power generated by its 2.3-litre turbo petrol engine, the Mazda3 MPS will be one of the most powerful high-performance sports hatches with front-wheel drive (FWD).

Although Mazda hasn't released any official info yet about this engine, we can tell you that this direct-injection, single-turbo produces 191 kW at 5 500 r/min and massive torque of 380 Nm at just 3 000 r/min.

The car's styling pursues a look of strength and solidity in a design that conveys its unmatched dynamic performance at a glance. Mazda3 MPS reflects Mazda's intention to continue delivering Zoom-Zoom in all its products.
