The sport version of the new Mazda3 called the MPS is actually one of the most powerful hatchbacks in the market today with 260 hp. So it does not really need engine upgrade.

However, the experts at H&R center have tried to improve the car’s dynamics by adjusting its chassis using their own components. Needless to say H&R is one of the best names in business when it comes to suspension parts.

With the new suspension the MPS is now 30 mm lower than the standard and that not only improves handling and agility of the car, it also improves the looks of it remarkably. This kit only costs 244 euros and has TUV standard.

The tuner also offers wheels spacers on which you can install factory or aftermarket rims. These components remove the empty space between the wheels and the fenders and make the car to look even cooler!
