2014 Mazda3 Sedan Rear Leaked
Fortunately, we won't have to wait for the official word from the Japanese carmaker on that last car, as the boot of the new Mazda3 Sedan has been leaked.
We're still trying to figure out where this picture originated from (it's spread all over Facebook and various forums), but it's clear that it's the real deal, and that it should be revealed within the coming months.
Design-wise, the Mazda3 sedan's rear is almost identical to the Mazda6. The bumper panel is huge, coming up from the wheel arch to touch the lights. There's a small boot lid spoiler which gives the car a sporty look. The only thing that's missing is that chrome strip going across.
Engine wise, the new compact sedan will be sold in some markets with with a Skyactiv-G 1.5-liter petrol engine rated at 100 hp, while the 2.0-liter unit will deliver 120 hp and 165 hp respectively. The European Mazda3 sedan will a diesel as well, a the 2.2-liter powerplant producing 150 hp. US buyers will also be offered a 2.5-liter four-banger.
