Mazda's General Manager of Global Sales and Marketing has revealed the company could offer a high-performance Mazda2 MPS.

Speaking to Car Advice, Yasuhiro Aoyama said “Once we introduce one model the competitiveness will gradually deteriorate… so we need to maintain the competitiveness of the vehicles." He went on to say "For some markets a sportier version would work" and it is "definitely one of the considerations.”

His sentiments were echoed by Mazda2 deputy program manager of vehicle development, Kengo Fukushima, who said he wants the model to be a like the Ford Fiesta ST but admitted there are no plans for it yet.
