New-gen Mazda3 to be launched in the U.S. this year image

The Japanese based automaker Mazda is planning to introduce the next generation of the Mazda3 to the United States later on this year.

The car manufacturer may try to keep the new generation of the Mazda3 into the shadows for now but as we all learned over the years, this isn’t always possible in this industry. According to a recent report, the new generation of the Mazda3 will make its way into the company’s dealerships across the United States this autumn, so if you live in the country this means that the model can end up in your driveway by the end of the year.

The next generation of the Mazda3 will adopt the Kodo design language, first seen on its larger brother, the Mazda6, with the hexagonal grille. Rumors are saying that the model will be lighter and more fuel efficient and this will happen because the Mazda3 might ride on the same platform as the CX-5 crossover. A range of SkyActiv engines will be adopted across the range, and this will include the 2.0 liter four-cylinder unit, along with the 2.5 liter, mated to either a manual or an automatic transmission. Additional details on the model remain unknown for the moment and will be announced close to its launch.
