The next Mazda 3 expected to debut 2014 is spied while doing some road test in Europe. The Mazda 3 prototype were wearing pattern camouflage but the Mazda’s Kodo design language can all been seen with the shapes and curves of the car.
The next generation of Mazda 3 front is expected to look very much like its siblings (Mazda 6, Mazda CX-5). As we can see there will be a prominent black grille and angled headlights to replace the current model’s smiley face look with a more serious look.
The above photo is a render impression of the how the next generation of Mazda 3 would look like based on the spied shots gathered.
The interior of the Mazda 3 share some design of the Mazda 6,CX5. However we also notice some similarity from Mercedes-Benz A-Class and the BMW 2-series. The top of the dashboard is fitted with fairly large screen likely for entertainment and navigation system. The center console with hand brake area also features 2 dials ( one bigger and one smaller) likely to use to control the in car entertainment / navigation system. Overall, the new interior looks more premium than its competition in the segment (Example, Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla Altis and etc).
The next generation of Mazda 3 will feature all the Skyactiv technology from Mazda as well as we do expect i-Stop and i-Eloop system to be fitted into certain models.
