All-New 2014 Mazda3 Hatchback

Mazda today released details for its next generation Mazda3 and unveiled the all-new 2014 Mazda3 5-door hatchback at various global events throughout the world.

The third generation Mazda3 is all new redesigned in and out and from the ground up.  It has a 2.4 inches longer wheelbase than the outgoing models; however the compact 5-door Mazda3 is 1.8 inches shorter in overall length compared to the previous generation.  With the longer wheelbase, the all-new Mazda3 is 1.6 inches wider and about 0.6 inches lower than the previous generation.

Being Mazda’s top-selling model, the all-new 2014 Mazda3 joins Mazda CX-5 and Mazda6 to become the third Mazda vehicle to feature Mazda’s “KODO – Soul of Motion” design and full range of SKYACTIV Technology, which consists of lightweight efficient engines, transmissions, body and chassis.

In addition, the 2014 Mazda3 is the first vehicle to feature Mazda’s all-new “Active Driving Display”.  Mounted vertically behind the meter hood and hidden when the ignition is off, the “Active Driving Display” is a pop-up panel that shows vehicle speed, navigation directions and other driving information.

Another new feature that the new Mazda3 has is an “active grille shutter” mounted in front of the radiator, which helps improve aerodynamic performance when it automatically opens and closes basing on the driving condition.

For the North American or U.S market, the 2014 Mazda3 is available in two engine choices: the SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter gasoline engine and a new SKYACTIV-G 2.5-liter gasoline engine, as featured in the CX-5 and 2014 Mazda6.  The 2.0-liter engine produces 155 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque, whereas the 2.5-liter engine generates 184 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque.  Both engines are teamed with two transmission choices: the SKYACTIV-MT six-speed manual and SKYACTIV-Drivesix-speed automatic transmissions.

The next-generation 2014 Mazda3 will arrive at dealerships in the fall.
