What Mazda needs urgently is a proper performance line-up to rival the likes of the Ford ST/RS, VW GTi/R etc In Australia Mazda is a BIG seller and for good reason but it lacks the street cred that performance versions bring in spades. Currently the only model in Mazda's line-up that has a sporty image is the MX-5 and that's not a straight out performance car either, nor are the SP trim levels on the 3.

Interestingly an Australian car mag claims the Cx8 is just a stretched CX5 rather than a SWB CX9

Funny you should say this. I have a Mazda 3 SP25 GT. Nice enough car but my next car will be something with some power. Most probably a Golf GTI or R. Mazda is missing out by not offering something with some more power.

...it is. Look at its interior for an obvious clue.
