With Mazda's redesigned Mazda6 sedan completed and on showroom floors, the automaker has turned its attention to the smaller Mazda3.
Scheduled to be revealed at the 2008 LA Auto Show in November, Mazda has given us a sneak peek at the all-new Mazda3 sedan, and it is a sexy little number. Details are still sparse, but the first thing we notice is the dramatically swept back front end, which brings the 3's aesthetic in line with the new Mazda6. Expect more power and more space over the current incarnation, as is par for the course with model updates. Possible power plants include 2.0- and 2.5-liter engines for the North American specification sedan. As long as the fantastic driving dynamic of the current Mazda3 is left intact, we'll be happy.
Expect to see more of the all-new Mazda3 sedan, along with the hatchback version, in our coverage of the 2008 LA Auto Show.
