2010 Mazda3 MPS UK Pricing Announced
The 2010 Mazda3 MPS will be available with a choice of four body colours at no extra charge – Aluminium Silver Metallic, Black Mica, Velocity Red Mica and Crystal White Pearlescent. The car’s exterior design is based on the second-generation Mazda3 hatchback, but with a more aggressive and sporty look.
Moving forward to the performance enhancements, the 2.3-litre DISI Turbo petrol Euro V engine produces 191 kW/260 HP of maximum power at 5,500 rpm and reaches the maximum torque of 380 Nm at a low 3,000 rpm. The new-generation MPS sprints from 0-100 km/h in just 6.1 seconds and has a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
“Our latest Mazda3 MPS is a strikingly bold design, more dynamic looking, more aggressive and more assertive than ever before,” said Mark Cameron, Sales & Marketing Director, Mazda Motors UK, in a statement for the press. “The new bonnet air-intake, new-style 18-inch alloy wheels and larger rear spoiler create the muscular, athletic look of a sprinter. Delivering sensationally spirited performance, the new Mazda3 MPS puts the heat back into the hot-hatch sector with ‘stand out’ looks that put rivals in the shade and it boasts exquisite handling and incredible dynamics.
“Typical of Mazda’s engineering ethos, the new Mazda3 MPS is a very complete package – not just in terms of its enhanced powertrain and chassis upgrades, but also with regard to its very high level of standard equipment. And alongside sensational performance it will of course retain the accessibility, practicality, reliability and build quality of its sister models,” added Cameron.
