Australian media is reporting a Mazda3 MPS concept will be introduced in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Motoring says the hot hatch concept will shortly morph into a production car that will have a turbocharged 2.5-liter engine with as much as 300 PS (220 kW). Previous reports have indicated the vehicle will adopt an all-wheel drive layout, but nothing is official at this point.

In related news, Mazda also has plans to stage the world premiere of the next generation CX-9 in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show where it is expected to have the same 2.5-liter turbo as the Mazda3 MPS concept.

There's also going to be a new CX-7 which will allegedly take the shape of an elongated CX-5 with a 5+2 seating arrangement and will be out sometime next year.
