Mazda 3 (2003 - 2008)

Mazda3 i-stop and MPS to premiere at Geneva Motor Show

3 February 2009 - Mazda will debut two new versions of the Mazda3 range at the 2009 Geneva International Motor Show. The premiere of the Mazda3 with i-stop, Mazda's fuel-saving start-stop system, will be shared with the Mazda3 MPS, Mazda3's high performance flagship model at the Geneva show. The Mazda3 MPS now features improved fuel economy and emissions that satisfy Euro Stage 5.

The eco friendly Mazda3 features the i-stop system in combination with the MZR 2.0 DISI (Direct Injection Spark Ignition) engine. Together, these two Mazda proprietary technologies help the new model achieve approximately 12 percent lower fuel consumption (urban cycle) than the current European Mazda3.

Carrying forward the MZR 2.3 DISI Turbo engine, Mazda3 MPS builds on the popularity and recognition of the previous model. It evolves the driving experience to an entirely new level of quality and pleasure with its emotional design and exhilarating performance.
