Mazda unveiled the all-new for 2014 Mazda3 hatchback today, and in keeping with their old “zoom zoom” slogan, the car looks pretty “zoomy” (sporty). I’ve always liked the Mazda3, based on its looks, I’ve never driven one. This new model looks fantastic, based on the pictures I’ve seen. The design looks very European, I think it should look just as good in person, but you never know.
The new Mazda3 will be offered as a hatchback and a sedan. The hatchback (5-door) is shorter, wider, and lower than the car it replaces; a perfect recipe for a sporty car. It’s 1.8” shorter, while it has a 2.4” longer wheelbase; it rides 0.6” lower, and is 1.6” wider.
