While the recent release of Mazda 6 heralded the arrival of a new generation of Mazda, the public launch of the new Mazda3 confirms Mazda’s continued commitment to be leaders in design and innovation. The Mazda3 is the third model to incorporate Mazda’s KODO design language which at its heart is the desire to express dynamic motion in every detail.

The new Mazda3 has been designed with its compact cabin positioned as far back as possible to extenuate its sporty design and emphasise the perception of speed and agility.

The KODO¬† styling sweeps down both sides of the Mazda 3 to the rear with its V shape window and sleek tail light assembly, The hatchback incorporates a roof spoiler while the sedan has a rear spoliler both of which seamlessly incorporate into the overall design.
