The new generation of the Mazda3 MPS according to Australian media will be four-wheel drive . Mazda probably has decided to make this move after seeing that it’s competitors put four-wheel drive to their hatchbacks like the Mercedes A45 AMG and the Volkswagen Golf VII R.
It may be presented in December, but technical specifications remain unknown. It will probably produce more horsepower than the pevious generation though (more than 260 hp). Rumors say that it may also have a naturally aspirated 2.0 -liter engine which will produce 200 hp.
