The first images of the new 2009 Mazda3 sedan has been unveiled at both the Australian International Motor Show and around the world simultaneously, ahead of its international debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show which starts on November 19.The Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Ford Focus etc. rival features many of the styling cues which can be found on the larger Mazda6 including the new ‘five-point grille’ corporate face, while a more refined sporty ride, top class fuel economy and quietness can be found in the new generation of Mazda’s most popular model – nearly one in three Mazdas sold is a Mazda3.

Mazda Executive Vice President Philip Spender said: “Today is a very important day for new car buyers, both in Australia and around the world,

“We chose Sydney to give the world its first look at the new Mazda3’s striking design. Following that, North America will host the world debut of the Mazda3 sedan in late November. Shortly after that the new-generation Mazda3 five-door hatchback will debut on the European continent.

“I think it’s only fitting that a car that accounts for one-third of Mazda’s global sales should have a truly global reveal.”

More details on price and Australian specifications will be revealed ahead of its arrival in mid-2009.
