Profile

Mazda's 3 MPS hatchback has been said by some to be uninspiring, others even say boring, but be under no illusions, this is the world's most powerful front wheel drive hatchback and will blast you to 60mph in under 6 seconds for under 20000!

It may well be pushing it a bit to channel 256 bhp and 280 lbft of torque through the front wheels but the MPS actually handles remarkably well. This is thanks in part to an electronically controlled torque limiter that keeps any torque steer under wraps.

It may not be the class leader but the MPS clearly deserves it's place alongside rivals such as the Focus ST, Astra VXR and Golf R32.
