The Mazda 3 MPS gets an upgrade
Starting this month, at the top of the Mazda 3 range the 155mph high-performance MPS will benefit from heightened visual appeal.
The upgraded MPS has everything it had before, like exceptionally handling and performance as well stunning exterior design but now it gets better, with new gunmetal 18 inch alloy wheels, and the inner roof spoiler, door mirror housings and lower rear bumper trim are all finished in a sleek black Mica finish.
Sales Director Peter Allibon at Mazda UK commented, “Visual upgrades to the Mazda3 MPS compliment its strikingly bold design, which boasts a dynamic, aggressive and assertive look, that sets it apart from the rest of the Mazda3 line-up and encapsulate the ‘defy convention’ philosophy of our brand,” comments Peter Allibon, Sales Director, Mazda UK.
“Mazda3 MPS delivers a unique combination of exhilarating driving fun and everyday compact car practicality. Its distinctive bonnet air-intake, gunmetal 18-inch alloy wheels and large rear wing with the new inner spoiler create a muscular, athletic appearance. Delivering sensationally spirited performance, the Mazda3 MPS boasts ‘stand out’ looks which give it a great road presence, plus exquisite handling and incredible dynamics. It is the ultimate expression of driving excitement and Mazda’s defy convention attitude, in a sophisticated super-hatch. Alongside sensational performance it provides all the accessibility, practicality, reliability and build quality of its Mazda3 sister models,” adds Allibon.
The Mazda 3 MPS is fitted with an immensely powerful and responsive 2.3 litre MZR DISI Turbo Petrol engine which generates a maxium power of 260ps and 380 Nm of torque (at just (3,000rpm).
Other enhancements include Bi-Xenon headlights with a swivel-type adaptive Front Light System (AFS), front fog lights, a radar-based rear vehicle monitoring (RVM) system and larger 320mm diameter ventilated front brake discs.
Its now available in four metallic/mica/pearlescent colours – Aluminum Silver, Black Mica, Crystal White Pearlescent and Velocity Red all free of charge.
