We all love hot hatches, and I would even go as far as saying that our current decade is the golden age of hot hatches with the WRX/Fiesta ST/Golf GTI/Sentra SE-R and the glorious MazdaSpeed 3, but there's one problem : all of these cars are not distinct enough from the lesser versions they are made from.

With its long bonnet, the abundant greenhouse, the low belt line, muscular fender flares and subtle rear spoiler, the MX-6 GT was in some sort a cheap and lightweight version of the BMW 850i. Innovation is in Mazda's DNA, and this why they went with a turbocharged engine way before it was cool. the 2.2t engine was good for 145hp, but many says it was excessively underrated. Anyway, the MX-6 GT was not exactly a fat car. As it's always the case with Mazda, the car was light and engineered for driving pleasure. The MX-6, like most similar cars of its era, had a mitigated success, but still enough to get a refresh in 1993. The 1993- 1997 MX-6 "Mystere" was a pretty neat car, but lacked the character of the the previous gen. Mazda, like Nissan and VW stopped making affordable sport coupes after that. Nowadays, the only performance cars one can afford under 30 grands are glorified econoboxes.Read more...
