Automotive News is reporting that Mazda is planning to launch the new Mazda3 compact later this fall. This information comes from three Mazda dealers who were informed by the company about this plan.
The Mazda3, while getting up there in age, still remains a vital model for Mazda. Last year, the 3 captured 6% of the compact market, well above the 1.9% market share Mazda had last year.
The next 3 will will adopt the Mazda's Kodo design language seen on the Mazda6 and CX-5. The 3 will also feature the full suite of SKYACTIV technologies, inlcuding a 2.0L SKYACTIV-G engine.

good if it does, Mazda needs to keep the product coming.  What Mazda needs is an ad campaign and some serious advertising.

I don't understand how that works... how can they launch a 2015 product in the fall of 2013?  Wouldn't it become 2014?  What are they going to do, do an extremely short run of 2014's this summer?  Seems foolish.

What does the law say about VINs?  I thought the car had to be on sale no sooner than, for example, January 1, 2013 to be a 2014 model, and so on.


I will be so glad when the toofless, giant black plastic grin is banished to unfortunate history on the Mazda 3.  The CX-5 and the new 6 are very good looking vehicles, imo, and this new 3 should be too.


I hope they don't give up on the 2, and come up with a next-gen model in the new style.
