Focus SVT vs Mazda MPS

Discussion in '2002 Ford Focus SVT' started by JaguarX, Oct 17, 2002.

  1. i think the clear winner will be the new 2003 Mazda MPS.
    with a 2.3L DI turbo 4 cylidner engine, producting, 280HP.
    yes 280HP!
    yes it passes strict emissions, and it's dubbed to be very fuel efficient despite it's high power!
    i think that's a very impressive car, and yet again Ford bringing back a falling marque name.
    wish they'll bring some of this technology to the main Ford line!

    Mazda is own by Ford, but the Atenza is deigned by Mazda itself.

    A better comparison would be between the SVT Focus and the MazdaSpeed Protge. Both are in the same market with 170 hp. The Prtege using a Callaway turbocharger, the Focus using an SVT tuned NA engine. I havent seen any reviews of the Protege but the MP3 got good reviews, with the main complaint being lack of power, which has been addressed. The Focus has gotten good reviews from most car magazines, winning comparisons with the new Civic Si, which looks awful.
