The front-wheel drive MX Sportif is powered by a MZR 2.0-litre, in-line four-cylinder engine, a member of Mazdaís new-generation of engines. The engine features a reversed intake-exhaust layout (with the exhaust system fitted at the rear), a variable intake system (VIS), a tumble swirl control valve (TSCV) and a high-flow port head. The fast revving four-cylinder meets the PZEV (partial zero emission vehicle) standard in the United States, the European Commissionís Euro Stage IV emission standard and the ULEV (ultra-low emissions vehicle) standard in Japan. The engine is mated to a close-ratio, short-throw five-speed manual transmission and, for added capability and safety, the MX Sportif features Mazda's Dynamic Stability Control.

Last time I checked the words in-line and rotary didn't belong in the same sentence together.

There were a bunch of sedans and wagons and other non-sports rotary powered cars designed by mazda. Head over to the mazda site and take a look at their rotary history.

Plus I would think that the new mazda's that are rotary powered would have the RX- designation

masestylez
Yeah RX means rotary afaik

It looks like a shrinkidink Mazda 6.

I like it. Now they just need to put some hp behind it.

The top engine will be a version of the 2.3 in the Mazda6i. This will also be the platform for the next Focus.

2.3, you mean 160hp and 157ft-lbs. Damn, that will eat a Civic Si for lunch, :cheers:

If it's the platform for the next focus, they need to throw AWD and a turbo 4cl in it like the next SVT focus!!

Looks nice, I like it. Now Mazda just need to slap the MS Protege Turbo on the 2.3 and make a "MazdaSpeed 3".
