New Mazda 3= AWESOME!

i love the look of this car and fitted with a MZR 2l engine, or better yet, the Mazda 6 2.3L i reckon it would be a corker of a car.

Although this is a preview, i reckon the production car will be 95% what we see here (different door handles, smaller wheels)

what do you think????????..........

thats what i thought. Feeding 122kw through it new chassis (new focus) would be awesome. Work the engine and get 135kw and she would be a real looker with real go and refinement

Don't let my missus see that.

She still thinks her 2002 model Astina is hot.

I totally agree...mazda was down in the dumps a few years back, now look at their line up. 6, 2, RX8 and a new RX7 coming out soon, their just going to get stronger. Its about time a new MX5 came out as well.

Lets hope that Ford Oz can replicate their success.

I bought a new Mazda 6 Luxury Sports Hatch a few months ago & I love it. Its not much smaller than my XR6 was but its amazing to drive. All the bells & whistles & it still steers like a go-kart :)
