The Mazda Motor Corporation is a Japanese automobile manufacturer that was established in 1920. It had the mission of producing some of the automobile industry's most unique and one-of-a-kind models. Throughout the years, Mazda has successfully and gradually turning this goal into reality. It had already received various recognitions, and its level of popularity soared high especially with the MX-5 Miata model. In 1991, Mazda came up with another great model in the name of MX-3, also called as the Mazda MX-3 Precidia in Canadian market, Eunos 30X in Australian market, and Eunos Presso, Autozam AZ-3 and Mazda AZ-3 in Japanese market.
The MX-3 is a 4-seater sports compact, 3-door hatchback vehicle. It was based on the FF EC platform. It was awarded as the Best New Sports Car by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada upon its introduction. The MX-3 is among the few vehicles in its class to exhibit outstanding handling capabilities (with 8.7 miles per second squared), and the first in its class to offer 1.8-liter V6 engine (the smallest V6 in mass production). It had two powerplnat options to which are the 1.6-liter I4 and the 1.8-liter V6 engines.
For the straight-4 engine, two versions were offered — the 88-horsepower SOHC, and the 106-horsepower DOHC/167-valve. However, more and more car enthusiasts are engaged in upgrading the engine for better performance just like a real sports car. And this activity is even true with the MX-3 engines. Moreover, the MX-3 records one of the lowest displacements for 1.8-liter V6 engine. It has the ability to reach a top speed of 136 miles per hour, and from 0 to 60 miles an hour in just 8.5 seconds.
Talking about power, the MX-3 is one great automobile to exhibit such with the use of V6 engine — the best powerplant during that time. You can expect smoothness, high endurance and high torque across the range of rpm. A variable length intake manifold is being employed on these engines for extreme torque, and utilizing intake resonance aptly called as the variable resonance induction system. Further, the MX-3 makes use of a twin-trapezoidal link for its rear suspension to allow the rear wheels to turn a little for better handling.
