Along with its svelte new styling, the Mazda 3 is hoping to attract buyers from its obvious European rivals (that's you Ford Focus and VW Golf), with its range of high mpg, low emissions engines.
The new 3 is the third model to receive Mazda's efficiency enhancing SKYACTIV technologies, and is also loaded with kit. Customers will benefit from a head-up display, radar-guided cruise control and Smartphone based Internet connectivity.
Reliability is guaranteed, too – Mazda showing off by driving the Frankfurt show cars straight from the factory in Hiroshima, a distance of 15,000km. It reaches showrooms this Autumn.
