Smile New Mazda

Hey guys, have u heard about new "Mazda 3 MPC"??? It has 256hp, 2.3L engine and goes from 0 to 100 in 7.0 seconds (I am not sure if its 100 ml or 100 km, cause 60 miles = 100 km). If anyone else knows something about this car plz post any new info. Thanks.

im not really sure what your stating is correct... 256 hp is a lot of power for such a small car, so i would expect a much quicker 0-60 mph time. yet, i highly doubt it's enough power to bring the car to 100 mph in just 7 seconds

Dunno, but over here we've got the Mazda6 MPS ... It is all wheel drive and has a 2.3L turbo that puts out 190kW and 380Nm of torque.... That's about 250hP I think.

This link may be construed as an ad, but it shows the car.

the Mazda6 MPS in aus is called mazda 6 speed (if they didnt change the name) in USA and Canada the one he is talking about is the MP"V" which is a family van or SUV and it does have 256HP but really is it worth is...in a family van

They are bringing out a new mazda 3 after the mazda 6 MPS, and like the MPS it will be awd, turboed and have the same 2.3 litre but down-tuned to about 160kw.
