Stronger, faster, better

The vehicle's structure was reinforced at the door pillars, roof rails and side sills for better protection in rollovers and side impacts. The engine in the DX and LX was enlarged to 1.6-litres and now reached 105 horsepower. The Mazda Protege 5 wagon was launched in 2001 as was the performance-oriented Mazda Protege MP3, which came with lower, stiffer suspension, larger wheels, performance tires and quicker steering.
