Sporty driv­ing with the all-new 3 hatch­back

Bray People - - Motoringextra -

MAZDA Mo­tor Cor­po­ra­tion show­cased the all-new Mazda3 5-door hatch­back at the Bologna Mo­tor Show. The sec­ond gen­er­a­tion Mazda3 5-door hatch­back fol­lows on the heels of the 4-door sedan ver­sion.

The all-new Mazda3 5-door hatch­back adopts the same char­ac­ter­is­tics as its sedan coun­ter­part, of­fer­ing sporty driv­ing and a dy­namic de­sign, to­gether with top class en­vi­ron­men­tal and safety per­for­mance.

En­vi­ron­men­tal-friendly qual­i­ties were top of mind dur­ing de­vel­op­ment, in­clud­ing ef­fi­cient pow­er­trains, Mazda typ­i­cal light­weight en­gi­neer­ing and amongst the best in class aero­dy­nam­ics.

All petrol en­gine ver­sions of the new Mazda3 will of­fer even fur­ther ad­vanced en­vi­ron­men­tal per­for­mance, in­clud­ing the world’s first ve­hi­cle cat­a­lyst to be con­structed with sin­gle nan­otech­nol­ogy. This new de­vel­op­ment en­ables Mazda to re­duce its use of scarce re­sources such as platinum and pal­la­dium.

The new en­gine lineup has been tai­lored for Euro­pean cus­tomers and now in­cludes the newly de­vel­oped 2.2-litre turbo diesel en­gine, just launched in the Mazda6.

The new 2.2-litre turbo diesel en­gine is a high-per­for­mance clean diesel pow­er­plant with top class out­put, fuel econ­omy and re­fine­ment. It will be of­fered in two vari­ants, a high power ver­sion with a max­i­mum out­put of 185 PS, and a stan­dard power ver­sion with a max­i­mum out­put of 150 PS.

Dy­namic de­sign – the Mazda3 5-door hatch­back.
