Mazda will launch the new generation Mazda3 this year at the Paris Motor Show and sales will begin in spring of 2009. The future Mazda3 will be offered in both four-door sedan and five-door hatchback.
Japan’s The My Car magazine has put together a rendering of the upcoming next-generation Mazda 3. Not surprisingly, the rendering includes a lot of styling features borrowed from both the new Mazda 6/Atenza and the popular Mazda 2 compact car.
Future Mazda3 will be powered by a range of engines starting from a base 1.5-liter four cylinder to a 2.5-liter four cylinder borrowed from Mazda6.
