All-new Mazda 3 sedan and hatchback

Yesterday, we gave you the four variants of the all-new Mazda 3 for the Philippine market. And then last night, we were first to announce their prices on our Facebook page. To recap, the four Mazda 3 variants and their prices are:

* 2.0 Skyactiv R sedan - P1,195,000
* 2.0 Skyactiv R hatchback - P1,198,000
* 1.5 Skyactiv V sedan - P945,000
* 1.5 Skyactiv V hatchback - P948,000

The public reaction is varied: Some say the prices are expensive, others believe they're reasonable. But one person said it best: "I'll reserve my judgment until I see the specs list."

So below is the complete specs list of the all-new Mazda 3 for your perusal.

Oh, and according to Mazda Philippines CEO Steven Tan, it's best to get a unit now as the above-mentioned prices are only "introductory" and will see an increase after about six months.
