Mazda3 fine-tuned Tcomes as noreal surprise, but Mazda has finally confirmed its hot turbo-charged MPS version of the Mazda3. Except for teaser photos, details are scarce because the company is saving the best for the car’s first official airing at next month’s Gene- va motor show, which opens on March 3. However, Mazda Australia spokes- man, Glenn Butler, has confirmed the MPS will hit local showrooms around September. The MPS makes up a small but important portion of sales of the 3000 Mazda3s sold locally each month. But Butler says it has a strong following. ‘‘Its reason for existence is more than just sales,’’ he says. ‘‘It’s the halo car for the Mazda3 and for the brand.’’ Visually the new MPS gets the go- fast bits that so characterise the current car, but the letterbox bonnet air intake for the turbo is new. It gives the car an edgier, more aggressive look that is obviously designed to go head-to-head with the Subaru Impreza WRX and Mitsu- bishi Lancer Ralliart. Apart from the air intake there is low-profile performance rubber, dual exhausts, rear diffuser and sports body kit and a rear roof-mounted spoiler. Power comes from the carry over turbo-charged direct injection 2.3-litre four cylinder engine, shared with the CX7, mated to six-speed manual gearbox. The company isn’t revealing per- formance figures but power could be as high as 200kW, just enough to eclipse the SubaruImprezaWRXand Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart. The cur- rent car develops 190kW/380Nm. Butler says there was no need to upgrade the 2.3-litre to a normally aspirated 2.5-litre, which will power the new Mazda3 SP25. POWER: Externally the turbo-charged Mazda3 MPS will not differ radically from current models. Mazda has not confirmed whether the new MPS is all-wheel drive like its key Japanese rivals, or will remain front-wheel drive. There is some speculation it could borrow the new ‘‘Revoknuckle’’ front-wheel drive suspension from the Ford Focus RS, as thenewMazda shares much underneath with the Ford. The Revoknuckle suspension is designed to eliminate torque steer. According to the Mazda3 program manager, Yoshiyuki Maeda, theMPS is ‘‘the ultimate sporting expression is more than just sales. It’s the halo car for the Mazda3 and for the brand ‘ • Sports Suspension • Antilock brakes Cruise Control Sports Suspension • Antilock brakes • Cruise Control • Traction control • Traction control • Alloys of our new-generation Mazda3 range’’. ‘‘It builds on the already capable new-generation Mazda3 hatch with higher levels of ferocityandexhilara- tion, and like all new Mazda models with an eye to environmental con- cerns, it is powering responsibly into the motoring future.’’ ’ NEIL McDONALD • Boot Spoiler • Fog Lamps • Sports instruments • Sports pedals • Keyless entry • Immobiliser • A/Cond • Rear armrests • Auto Headlights (light sensing) • Pwr Windows • Auto with tiptronic trans.
