Mazda 3

CAR (UK) - - Insider -

The Mazda 3 has al­ways been over­looked in the fam­ily hatch mar­ket, a qui­etly ex­cel­lent al­ter­na­tive to the usual sus­pects. Now it’s back with a new plat­form and higher-aimed sights set on build­ing Mazda’s global sales. As be­fore it’ll be also be avail­able as a three­box saloon. Un­like be­fore, there’s some in­trigu­ing new tech un­der its sin­gu­larly long bon­net. This is the ‡irst Mazda to fea­ture the new Sky­ac­tiv-X com­pres­sion-ig­ni­tion en­gine, a petrol that can per­form like a diesel un­der cer­tain con­di­tions, with po­ten­tial big gains in econ­omy. Maybe this time it’ll ‡ly a lit­tle higher above the radar.
