Mazda Motor Corporation is pleased to announce the Mazda3 MPS high-performance flagship of the new-generation Mazda3 sports compact will make its long-awaited world debut at the 2009 Geneva International Motor Show on March 3.
The new-generation Mazda3 MPS will rewrite hot-hatch benchmarks when it launches globally from the second half of 2009.
Mazda3 Program Manager Yoshiyuki Maeda says "The exhilarating Mazda3 MPS is the ultimate sporting expression of our new-generation Mazda3 range.
“It builds on the already capable new-generation Mazda3 hatch with higher levels of ferocity and exhilaration, and – like all new Mazda models – with an eye to environmental concerns, powering responsibly into the motoring future."
The new-generation Mazda3 MPS takes the already striking exterior design of the new Mazda3 on which it's based and cranks up the visual aggression.
The MPS hot-hatch's sharp new clothes advertise the performance lurking beneath, both in the form of its 2.3-litre direct injection turbocharged engine, and its razor-sharp handling.
Maeda-san says "The MPS has evolved to an entirely new level of emotional design and exhilarating performance. The new-generation Mazda3 MPS is the embodiment of Mazda's Zoom-Zoom spirit."
* Officially titled the 79e Salon International de l’Auto, the Geneva Motor Show press days are March 3 and 4, and the public days are March 5 through 15.
