Mazda will showcase the world premiere of the all-new Mazda3 5-door hatchback at the Bologna Motor Show on December 3, 2008.  The second generation Mazda3 5-door hatchback follows on the heels of the new 4-door sedan version, displayed at the Los Angeles Auto Show.  The all-new Mazda3 adopts similar characteristics as its sedan counterpart, offering a popular mix of sporty-style driving and fresh design.

The new engine line-up includes the freshly developed 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine, recently launched in the new Mazda6, in addition to the existing 1.6- and 2.0-litre petrol engines and the 1.6-litre turbo diesel.

The new 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine will be offered in two variants, a high power version with a maximum output of 136 kW, and a standard power version with a maximum output of 110kW.  Both offer clean emission performance and comply with the Euro Stage5 regulations.
