The Europe-market Mazda3 MPS (for Mazda Performance Series) will be on display at the Geneva Motor Show, alongside the Kabura concept which debuted in Detroit in January.

The Mazda3 MPS, which will be marketed as the Mazdaspeed3 in North America, gets its zoom-zoom from a 2.3-liter MZR DISI (direct injection spark ignition) turbo engine, which Mazda says makes it one of the most powerful FWD high-performance sport compacts. The same direct-injection engine is used in the Mazdaspeed6, where it cranks out 274 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque in North American tune.
