In the US, Los Angeles showed the new Mazda3.
Immediately noticeable difference between the body and the sedan hatchback.
Both options have supporters in Ukraine. The Japanese automaker decided to make the versions even more dissimilar, as part of Kodo’s corporate style. Hatchback made more emotional, leaving almost unchanged the memorable features of the concept of Kai. Sedan received the design of the conceptual Vision Coupe.
New Mazda3 went in different directions and in size. The sedan has grown in length to 4662 mm, and its height has decreased by 5 mm. The hatchback has become more compact: its length is 4459 mm, and its height is 1440 mm. The length of the wheelbase has not yet been reported.
The car interior is drawn by several straight lines, is devoid of unnecessary pretentiousness, and the cockpit is divided by a high massive console between the seats. Because of this design in front-wheel drive car there is no need for such a high tunnel.
In the line of power units available for the new Mazda3, five engines: three petrol Skyactiv-G 1.5 / 2 / 2.5 l, 1.8-liter diesel Skyactiv-D and “micro-hybrid” installation based on ignition compression Scyactive X.
