It’s official – JenningsMazda in Sunderland and Middlesbrough are now specialist dealers for the Mazda3 MPS model.

The Riverside Road dealership, just off Wessington Way and the Cargo Fleet Lane branch have signed up to Mazda’s specialist dealer programme, which has been set up in order to provide customers with a more performance-orientated customer experience.

The new specialist dealer status means JenningsMazda will have an allocated Mazda3 MPS demonstrator on site, two dedicated MPS sales staff to see to customers’ needs and requirements, access to a priority new car ordering system, in addition to hosting frequent Mazda3 MPS customer events at the Sunderland and Middlesbrough dealerships.

Delighted to be a specialist dealer for the Mazda3 MPS five-door hot hatch model, Chris Nixon, franchise manager at JenningsMazda in Sunderland, said;

“Only 89 out of 157 Mazda dealers nationwide are participating in the programme and we are proud to be bringing the initiative to both new and existing Mazda3 customers across Wearside and Teesside.”

“The Mazda3 MPS has generated a lot of interest and we are currently taking orders on the new model.”

Powered by a turbocharged 2.3-litre petrol engine, which generates 260ps and 380Nm of torque, the Mazda3 MPS has a top speed of 155mph and can accelerate from 0-62mph in just 6.1 seconds.

The MPS model also features distinctive sports styling with unique grille and bonnet designs, lowered sports suspensions, front fog lights, side skirts and rear roof spoiler with 18” diameter, 7.5” wide alloy wheels.

Specification also includes front, side and curtain airbags, plus ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) as well as Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) to safely help reduce stopping distances, in addition to featuring Dynamic Stability Control with a Traction Control System (TCS) to help prevent under steer and over steer.
