Mazda 3 MPS 2011

First Mazda on the blog and I know many of you out there will be thinking what on earth is a Mazda doing on a blog about dream cars? Well this Mazda is a bit more interesting than most of the other ones on the road as it is an MPS version of the Mazda 3. And what does that mean? The MPS badge is to a Mazda what the ST badge is to a Ford or the Gti to a Golf. Yes, it is the sporty version of the standard car. Now you do not really see many MPS cars around. The more recent versions are easy to spot because of the big scoop on the bonnet, the spoiler and the two exhaust tips at the back, not to mention bumpers and side skirts. So what is under the bonnet? It is a 2.3 four-cylinder engine which produces 256bhp so it is bound to be a pretty fast hot-hatch. 0-62mph take 6.1 seconds and the top speed is limited to 155mph or 250km/h, so not that bad for a Mazda!
