“Strength comes to those who wait,” said the manufacturer. And fans of the Mazda3 is definitely waiting for you.
The company posted on YouTube and social networks mysterious video, which contains, essentially, only the sound of the engine and the date – July 8 this year. No specific details Mazda does not disclose, confining in Twitter profound statements, but, most likely, we are talking about the upcoming debut of the Mazda3 with the new power unit.
And contrary to expectations, this is not a revival of the hot hatch with the designation MPS: apparently, the Mazda decided to release a more powerful and fast, but not the sportier version of the Troika. ACCORDING to preliminary data, the turbo will be mounted on the hatch and sedan, accompanied by all-wheel drive system and automatic transmission exclusively.
As for the engine, its specifications are also not yet available. Presumably, adapted for the Mazda3’s 2.5-liter unit, developing around 250 HP and 435 Nm of torque – in some countries it is set, for example, the CX-5 crossover. It is worth Recalling that the most “charged” version of the Mazda3 is already there, but this is the track version of the racing series TCR.
Apparently, the new version of the Mazda3 despite the deprivation of its sporting status still be a competitor pyatidverok such as the VW Golf GTI, Hyundai Veloster i30 N and N, as well as the upcoming Toyota Corolla GR.
