Official: Next Mazda3
California will play host to the new Mazda3’s unveiling on 19 November at the Los Angeles motor show.
After soldiering on for five years, the vastly underrated Mazda3 has now come in for a redesign.
Although Mazda are cagey to avoid showing their hand technically at this stage, both 2-litre and 2.5-litre engines have been confirmed for the North American market.
Engines could possibly be sourced from the larger Mazda6, powered by capacity matching 2-litre 109kW and 2.5-litre 126kW units.
The new Mazda3 should arrive locally midway through 2009.
