The all-new Mazda 3 is coming. As to exactly when we aren’t certain yet…though if these images are anything to go by, ‘soon’ would be a pretty safe bet.
The photos you’re looking at were sent to us by reader Allan Gonzales. Yes, those are fresh units of the Japanese car manufacturer’s next-generation compact hatchback and sedan onboard a flatbed truck on an expressway.
If you’re planning on buying one when it comes out, these images will also give you a pretty good idea of what colors will be available. Of course, there’s the Soul Red hatch up top next to what we’re guessing is a Deep Crystal Blue sedan. On the first level sits a white hatch and a silver sedan, too. Note these may not be the names of the official Philippine-spec colors.
In March, Mazda Philippines gave the country a preview of the all-new 3 hatchback and sedan, albeit in the form of US-spec units. In Malaysia, the vehicle is available with either a 1.5-liter SkyActiv-G engine capable of 118hp and 153Nm or a 2.0-liter SkyActiv-G with 162hp and 213Nm of torque. In other countries, it also comes with the much-hyped Skyactiv-X engine.
No indication of what we’ll get here in the Philippines, but again, these photos suggest we might not have to wait long until we find out. Are you excited for the all-new Mazda 3’s official launch, too?
