On the official channel of Mazda in Mexico showed the latest modification of the “Troika” in the five-door body, and a guide on this virtual journey was made by the President of the regional division Miguel Barbeyto.
As expected, the Mazda3 was the engine volume of 2.5 liters, but its impact was slightly less than expected by fans of the family. In the Mexican specifications it develops 227 HP and 420 Nm of torque, and together with this motor hatch gets all-wheel drive system and six-speed automatic SkyActiv-Drive. The variant with manual transmission is not available.
Thus, novelty has become a bit weaker than, say, the VW Golf GTI, but it is unlikely that the manufacturer cares: turbirovanie version of piatigorski Mazda is not going to position as a hot hatch. Accordingly, the question of returning to the family version with the designation MPS is not. The novelty has not received any obvious external differences or sports decor and, apparently, settle in the market as the richest version of the Mazda3.
Announced the list of equipment is indirect evidence. In Mexico, this hatchback will be equipped with “smart” led optics, black 18-inch wheels, electrocom, multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bose sound system with 12 speakers and the like.
Known and local prices. Sorbirovannoe Mazda3 will be offered in two trim levels – Grand Touring Signature for the price of 489 and 529 900 900 pesos, respectively (22 000 and 23 800 USD). And next year on the market Mexico will be released the same sedan. Apparently, about global plans for the Mazda3 with the biggest motor company will be announced during the official premiere.
