GKN Driveline’s ‘Super LSD’ on All-New Mazda3 MPS

TOCHIGI, Japan--GKN Driveline’s Super LSD (limited slip differential), has been chosen for the all-new Mazda3 MPS performance superhatch, first shown at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year.

The Mazda3 MPS front-wheel drive superhatch is powered by a 260 ps (191 kW at 5,500 rpm) direct-injection turbo petrol engine. To achieve optimum handling and steering characteristics, GKN Driveline’s Super LSD was selected by Mazda engineers to harness the car’s high-power output and ensure controllable delivery to the front wheels.

GKN Driveline’s Super LSD is an innovative, compact and cost-effective engineering solution to the challenge of providing dynamic driving performance. It is designed to be fitted in place of standard differentials in front- or rear-axle or transaxle applications.

“We are very proud that Mazda has chosen GKN Driveline’s Super LSD for the all-new Mazda3 MPS,” said Graeme Walford, engineering and commercial director for GKN Driveline. “Along with existing applications on the Mazda MX-5 roadster and Mazda RX-8 sports coupe models, we are honored that GKN Driveline's Super LSD is making a contribution to Mazda's 'Zoom-Zoom' spirit in its latest superhatch.

“Thanks to its torque-sensing technology, GKN Driveline’s Super LSD enables Mazda to deliver excellent responsiveness and a sportier driving experience in these three distinctive models.”
