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.
