New Mazda3 coming - pics

Although these are pictures of a test mule - they are also the very first pictures of the never-before-seen 2009 Mazda3!

The Mazda3 will undergo a major redesign for the 2009 model year. Like the new 6, the 3 should adopt a much more aggressive and sportier design, and will be on riding on the next-generation global Ford Focus C1 platform.

It should measure in slightly wider and possibly a bit longer as well.

These pictures clearly show a new exhaust set-up and there is obviously a new cooling setup up front - indicated by all the hacked up panels.

The current base 2.0-litre motor will get a modest increase in horsepower, and the optional 2.3-litre four-cylinder will get upgraded to 2.5-litre.

This should give a boost of about 20kW and it's possible that both motors will feature direct injection technology.
