All-New 2014 Mazda3 (Video)

Derek Jenkins, Director of Design Mazda North America at Mazda North American Operations, gives Planet Vehicle an overview of the All-New 3rd generation Mazda3.

The all-new 2014 Mazda3 compact five-door was revealed to the world recently during an event in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood. After weeks of media speculation and numerous “leaked” images of enthusiast renderings, Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) pulled the sheet off the highly-anticipated redesign and confirmed the car will be on sale this fall. The all-new Mazda3 is engineered with the full complement of SKYACTIV®1 technologies – a proprietary suite of fuel-efficient, performance-driven components and manufacturing philosophies – as well as the handsome styling of the KODO design language. Other launch events also were held in Melbourne, Istanbul, St. Petersburg and London to debut the new vehicle, as well as celebrate the 10th year of Mazda3 production.
