The legendary “three” and “six” with the letters MPS do not get heirs and flagship rotary sports car on motives of the conceptual coupe RX-Vision will remain a dream of the fans of Mazda.

Last week in the framework of the auto show in Los Angeles, Mazda introduced the “treshku” the new, fourth generation. Longtime fans of the Japanese company were somewhat surprised at the fact that traditionally most driversa from a massive Mazda got semi rear suspension – they say, it’s the destruction of the brand driving rules. The overall impression, however, smoothed the stunning design and the promise of four-wheel drive versions in conjunction with MKP that every muscovado – balm for the soul. That’s only hot hatch the new Mazda 3, as it turned out, will not ever.

The head of the company Mazda, Akira Marumoto in an interview with the Australian edition of Drive, said that the revival of a charged line MPS (stands for Mazda Performance Series), is not a priority and what to expect sports cars from Mazda in the future is not worth it. Instead, the company will strengthen the emerging a few years ago the trend in its premium class models: the design becomes more refined, the materials used – higher quality, and technology more advanced. Recall that the new “treshka” the first of Mazda and the innovation of gasoline engine Skyactiv-X, in which fuel combustion occurs partly from compression, which allows to achieve efficiency as diesel, but without the need to install expensive system for purification of exhaust gases.

What’s to rotary engines, they are from Mazda will appear, but not for sports cars, and hybrids – it would be very compact machines that are used in an extension of the cruising range for electric vehicles. Interestingly, to produce such hybrids is the Mazda together with Toyota. Will be in the lineup and a pure electric car, and Mazda is developing its own without Toyota. The debut is scheduled for 2020. Previously Joe Stenuit, the new chief designer of the European branch of the Japanese company, said that the first Maslowski electric car “will remind the refrigerator”, but, as said Akira, Marumoto, and will never be a sports car.

The wheelbase is likely to be similar to the hatch — 2650 mm, but total length will exceed 4310 mm, and the trunk will be more 395 L.

The first official photos of the model Kia Xceed will be shown in the summer, and the premiere will take place on the tenth of September at Motorshow in Frankfurt. Meanwhile, the SUV with bumpers that did not appear in the body color, rides on the roads of South Korea without any masking. And now there is no doubt that Xceed got your own body, not recycled “shell” hatchback Ceed.

The designers have tried to distance themselves from Xceed Sid. Headlight cutout — new, long lights, too. Another grille in the front bumper the horizontal ties. Silver paste instead of the rear window looks strange. Forked release is not the same as the Sid GT.

While none of the representatives sadovskoy family, including Cerato, no all-wheel drive. Deprived of it, and a new Soul, and Stonic. But Xceed is theoretically able to break the vicious circle if, for example, comes closer to the model of Hyundai Kona or “Rob” the elder brother of the Sportage. In addition, the approach of a new global compactthat will not only front-wheel drive.
