Mazda3 to make world premiere in Los Angeles

The all-new Mazda3 sedan will have its world premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show to be held from Wednesday November 19 through to Sunday November 30, 2008.

Following the release of the 2nd-generation Mazda2 and Mazda6, the all-new Mazda3 sees the first full redesign of Mazda’s big-selling sports compact in 5 years.

Mazda claims that every element of the all-new Mazda3 has been developed for heightened exhilaration, with a more refined sporty ride, top class fuel economy and quietness. Environmental and safety features, based on Mazda’s “Zoom-Zoom” vision, aim to achieve a balance with the fun-to-drive personality.

The brand new version of Mazda’s sports compact carries forward the legacy of the current Mazda3. Since its launch in 2003, the current Mazda3 has sold approx. 1.8 million vehicles in over 100 countries and has won global motoring awards, including awards in New Zealand.

Andrew Clearwater, managing director, Mazda New Zealand says the all-new Mazda3, due for release next year, represents another critical step forward for Mazda, “The new Mazda3 embodies Mazda’s latest car-making philosophy and engineering technology, making it a striking statement of the evolution of Mazda’s Zoom-Zoom promise.”

“From day one, the Mazda3 has been one of the most popular vehicles for Kiwi car buyers and even today, five years into its life cycle, sales have performed well above our expectations. With the continuing trend toward smaller more efficient vehicles, I’m absolutely convinced that the all-new Mazda3 will extend upon the success of the current generation.”

Following the world debut of the North American specification sedan with 2.0- and 2.5-litre engines at the 2008 Los Angeles Auto Show, the five-door hatchback version of the all-new Mazda3 will be revealed in line with Mazda’s global sales schedule.
