Australian hot hatch enthusiasts will see the new-generation Mazda3 MPS just hours after the turbocharged performance hatchback makes its international debut on the other side of the world.
Mazda is fast-tracking a Mazda3 MPS to the Melbourne International Motor Show less than a day after its official world debut at the Geneva Auto Salon.
The new-generation Mazda3 MPS will be revealed on the Mazda Melbourne Motor Show stand on Wednesday, March 4.
This is a huge coup for Australia and for hot hatch fans, with the 2.3-litre turbo charged MPS appearing alongside the new Mazda3 range (including all-new SP-25 hatchback) as well as the revised MX-5 roadster.
The new-generation Mazda3 will be offered with a range of economical petrol and diesel engines. Mazda is confident it will make significant advances in style, safety, value for money and driving spirit when it goes on sale in April 2009. The Mazda3 MPS is slated for launch in Australia in the third quarter of 2009.
