definatly front wheel drive. I have changed many timing belts and it would be much easier if they were rear wheel drive. Nice cars though

Front wheel drive - I'd have bought one in an instant if they'd been made AWD

Yes there definitly a front driver and share all the mechanicals and running gear with the sister car the MX6.

Engine is a 2.5L V6 Mazda engine making 121kw, basically the same engine as the 626 V6 they use to offer.

One of the more shapely mid sized coupe around. Much much better than the Honda Prelude that still looks pretty ugly to this day.

Yep, that's all that stopped me getting one for the missus when they first came out - what a great looking thing and 120kw to play with.
