Mazda presents the hatchback and sedan versions of Mazda3

Mazda has recently introduced the sedan version of Mazda3 at this year's edition of Los Angeles Auto Show. The new generation of the car, which we bet that is based on the current European Ford Focus, since they bear the same wheelbase (2.64 m), keeps its 2-litre four-cylindre engine that produces 150 bhp and adds a 2.5-litre engine that generates 169 bhp.

Anyway, the biggest news from Mazda3 is about to be revealed at Bologna Motor Show, with the presentation of the five-door version of the car. Since it has European specifications, there must be turbodiesel engines on the range and Mazda has two of them available for Mazda3, a 1.6-litre and a new 2.2-litre. There are also two petrol engines, a 1.6-litre and a 2-litre, but they will not be as popular as the diesel-powered powerplants, especially the 2.2-litre. It will be offered in two options, one generating 150 bhp and another producing 185 bhp, both Euro 5 compliant.

Bologna will open its doors for the public in December 5.
