UK sales of new Mazda 3 MPS to start in October

The Japanese automaker Mazda has officially revealed the pricing levels for the British market regarding their new Mazda 3 MPS . The new Mazda 3 MPS will hit the market on the 1st of October. Mazda will be bringing the Mazda 3 MPS on the British market in only a single version. Thus, the base price for the new Mazda 3 MPS will be set at 21.500 pounds. For this kind of money, potential buyers will get mica or metallic paint finish, amongst other features.

The Mazda 3 MPS will get its power from a 2.3 liter turbocharged four cylinder engine that has an output of 260 HP and 380 Nm of torque. It is important to mention that the Mazda 3 MPS is a front wheel drive car, thus, through a six speed manual gearbox the power is sent to the front wheels of the car. Thanks to this powertrain, the Mazda 3 MPS will be able to reach an electronically limited maximum speed of 250 km/h while accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.1 seconds.

The most important features of the UK version of the Mazda 3 MPS include automatic dual zone climate control air conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity, a high resolution 4.1 inch screen mounted in the dashboard`s upper section, a surround sound BOSE premium audio system with 10 speakers, a new multi information display (MID) with a compact satellite navigation system, steering wheel mounted audio controls and front bucket sports seats.

The new Mazda 3 MPS is an improvement in comparison to the previous version of the car. The most important new features are practically exclusively done to the interior of the car. It seems that the people working for Mazda considered that the exterior of the car, the design styling and patterns of the sporty hatchback is still good enough for at least another year but they also felt that the interior of the car needs some improving.
