Overview Information

A factory tuned version of the Protege debuted at the 2002 NY Auto Show. The Mazdaspeed Protege has a 2.0L/170-bhp intercooled turbo (Garrett T25) I-4. A limited-slip differential is included, along with Racing Hart 17" x 7" alloy wheels, and 215/45ZR17 Bridgestone Potenza RE040 tires. A 450-watt Kenwood (CD/MP3) audio system w/subwoofer is standard. Only 2,000 vehicles will be available in late 2002.

Official Word:

The MAZDASPEED Protegé was initiated by a group of Mazda engineers here in the United States who are hard-core enthusiasts. They've taken everything that made the MP3 an automotive-press superstar and engineered it to the next highest level.
