Mazda 3 2014 debuts at Dubai Motor Show
The all-new 2014 Mazda 3 made its debut at the 2013 Dubai Motor Show this week. It is Mazda’s third new launch this year, following the Mazda CX-5 and Mazda 6.
The exterior of the Mazda3 gets the new Mazda “KODO” treatment, their new trademark design. It comes either as a 5-door hatchback or a 4-door sedan, made for the compact segment. Under the hood, the new SKYACTIV engines provide better fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions, although we’re not sure what the GCC specs are yet. We hear it will get 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre engines.
Inside also, the Mazda 3 gets a whole new interior. Highlights here include the Active Driving Display, Mazda’s new head-up display, and a rotary commander, redesigned to ensure drivers have control of their car’s infotainment features without taking their eyes off the road. Also, the new Mazda 3 features MZD Connect, the company’s new in-vehicle connectivity concept.
The new model will reach the UAE by April next year.
