One of the most popular cars in the compact car segment in Egypt and many other Middle Eastern countries is the Mazda3. Now the new Mazda3 has arrived as Mazda has confirmed that the four-door saloon version of the all-new Mazda3, completely redesigned for the first time in five years, will be revealed at the Los Angeles Auto Show on 19th November 2008.

The all-new Mazda3, which is the latest evolution of Mazda’s next generation Zoom Zoom products, follows the introduction of the all new Mazda2 and all-new Mazda6 last year. The all-new Mazda3 will be revealed during Mazda’s press conference at LA Auto Show from 12:20 to 12:45 (local time).

Every element of the all-new Mazda3 has been developed resulting in a more refined, sporty ride, top class fuel economy and quietness. Environmental and safety features, based on Mazda’s long-term “Sustainable Zoom-Zoom” vision, aim to achieve a balance with its fun-to-drive attributes. Add in a new expressive face and Mazda’s dynamic design elements, and the all-new Mazda3 is everything a driver could ask for in a sporty, family car.

The brand new version of Mazda’s best-selling family car continues the pedigree of the current Mazda3, offering a refreshing alternative to buyers in this segment.

Since its launch in 2003, the current Mazda3 has sold approximately 1.8 million vehicles in over 100 countries, including 13,000 sales last year and almost 8,000 sales this year alone in the UK. The Mazda3 has won more than 90 global motoring awards to date. The Mazda3 accounts for almost one in three Mazdas sold every year globally.

Following the world debut of the North American specification saloon at the show, the five-door hatchback version will be revealed in line with Mazda’s global sales schedule.

Mazda has not announced yet when the Mazda3 will hit showrooms in Egypt and the Middle East.
