A new photo of the 2014 Mazda3 sedan has surfaced on the web. It came following the launch of the all-new Mazda3 hatchback last week.
The new Mazda3 sedan is seen having a short boot with a subtle rear lip spoiler and slightly stretched rear lights. The photo also shows a raked rear windscreen, suggesting that the new Mazda3 sedan will adopt the low-slung roofline of the Mazda3 hatchback.
Mazda has remained relatively tight lipped about the upcoming Mazda3 sedan but confirmed that the new model will have a class-leading coefficient of drag of just 0.255 when equipped with the optional active air shutter grille and i-ELOOP regenerative braking system.
In Australia, the new Mazda3 will be offered with two engine choices at launch, the SKYACTIV-G 2.0-litre petrol engine and the new SKYACTIV-G 2.5-litre petrol engine. The 2.0-litre option produces 114kW of power and 200Nm of torque while the larger 2.5-litre alternative has an output of 138kW and 250Nm.
The all-new 2014 Mazda3 arrives in Australian showrooms in the first quarter of 2014. Pricing information will be released closer to launch.
