New Mazda MPS all set for launch

Mazda MPS fq

The new Mazda MPS is all set to make its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show this week. To boost anticipation more details and photos of one of our favourite hot hatches have just been released.

The super smiley face of the new redesigned Mazda3 has been butched up for MPS duty. The new car sports a bonnet scoop that even a Subaru WRX would be proud to wear, as well as its own unique grille trim, round fog-lamps, a roof-mounted spoiler, rear diffuser and exclusive alloys.

Apparently the new design won’t be joined by a new engine, as the same MZR 2.3L direct-inject, turbocharged four-cylinder will be used at launch though with power slightly increased to around 200kW. The only other bit of tech info circulating is a rumour that involves the Ford Focus RS. The Focus RS uses a special RevoKnuckle suspension system that virtually eliminates the issue of torque steer for the front-wheel-drive hot hatch, and rumour has it the Mazdaspeed3 may also take advantage of this advanced system.
