2014 Mazda3 rumoured to be available in the U.S. this fall

After the launch of the stunning new Mazda6, the next model that we expect from the Hiroshima-based automaker would be the compact Mazda3. According to Automotive News, an online car portal, three Mazda dealers in the US revealed that the all-new Mazda 3 will be launched in fall 2013, which means September to November.

The Mazda3 is the brand's best-selling model and will share the CX-5's new lightweight architecture. The new 3 is expected to be "Kodomised" like its bigger brother, the Mazda6. The above image shows a rendered impression of the next Mazda3.

The arrival of the new Mazda3 will hopefully spice up the Japanese compact sedan market, which is currently at a high risk of being overshadowed by vastly improved Korean offerings such as the Elantra and the upcoming Forte.

The new Mazda3 is expected to lose some weight and will be powered by a range of Skyactiv engines.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

Mazda make nicely designed cars esp compared to the other Japanese makes like Toyota.
That said it's a pity their engines are not so good i.e. petrol consumption poor and the engines are rough and harsh. Hopefully their Skyactiv engines are better and with their beautiful designs it could possibly be a win win situation!!
