2009 Mazda 3 hatchback exposed

2009 Mazda 3 hatchback exposed

Hot on the heels of renderings for the 2009 Mazda 3 sedan, these photos show early models of the 2009 Mazda 3 hatchback.

Speculation is that these are leaked photos of a toy company’s protoype model for the actual car. Some suggest these might have been leaked from Mazda’s HQ itself. Either way, I believe this is exactly how the new Mazda 3 hatchback will look, missing a bit of colour and details of course.

The actual car should debut in November, alongside the sedan.

What do you think?



  1. i found from the mitsubishi web that the 295HP Lancer Evolution Automated Manual mekes speed of 62mph in 4.7 seconds but you posted 6.3 seconds.
    mash i hope that you are wrong man, i would never think of a sport automatic car that geos slower than the cheap G35!!!!

    The specs you refer to is the “FQ-300 by HKS” which seems to have more torque. The British and American versions all seem to be upgraded with 400 Nm of torque. I found the listed time for the standard version in a Spanish site, and I read somewhere that these are the official numbers for the Euro version. The Al Habtoor Motors site says the GCC version has 366 Nm, which means we get the European (non-UK) version. If you find another source for an “official” time, let me know.

  3. when are you buying the evolution assassin? heres the habtoor link http://www.alhabtoor-motors.com/mitsubishi/sedan/evolution/main.htm

  4. you are right man. well, the manual looks so fast 😛

    cb, what do you think it is better to be bought. Automatic or manual?

  5. well manual is more fun to drive but if it’s going to be your everyday drive then maybe automatic might be a better choice. just a suggestion:use your LC for everyday drives and the manual evo for some weekend fun 😀

  6. nice suggestion man, my LC started to give me bad numbers 9.3-9.2 seconds to reach 100km/h at this summer time. while it gave me 8.3-8.4sec on Feb.

    and what about the Performance Pack? i think it is not helping (just wasting money). Tell me you ideas about it please.

    and dont forget to tell me your best colour. of course mine is red :mrgreen:

  7. not sure what is included in the performance pack but im sure it would improve your performance/handling slightly.but i guess it is better you don’t go for the pack because the evo should handle pretty well without it too.
    my favorite color is black 😈 (if they have it). red looks very good too.drove a red lancer gt yesterday.

  8. its good to hear this. the 170000 Dhs Evo sounds good too.the performance pack is not important in a AWD car like the Evo.
    mash, what about the V8 4.6 Mohave that posted in the newspaper today??

  9. nice car,but mazda 6 better.

  10. nice aggressive look on the Mazda
