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.
