Mazda 3

Ask most people to think of a Mazda, and chances are it's a Mazda 3 that springs to mind. 

Following in the footsteps of the 323, the Mazda 3 nameplate burst onto the scene in 2003 and is now into its fourth generation. 

Compared to its predecessors, the latest Mazda 3 hatchback and sedan have been given a sleeker makeover and a steeper starting price. The interior has been overhauled for a more premium feel, too. 

Along with the usual choice of 2.0- and 2.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engines, the latest Mazda 3 debuts a revolutionary new compression-ignition SkyActiv-X engine for the brand. It's also available with a turbocharged 2.5-litre engine overseas, but it hasn't been confirmed for Australia.
