Design of 2015 Mazda 3

The 2015 Mazda 3 will appear with some slight refreshments both in its construction and its design. Nonetheless, it is still uncertain which platform will be used for this upcoming compact car. It will be constructed either on the C1 or CX5 architecture. What’s more, its dimensions will be changed a little. The complete length will be 1.8” lower whereas its wheelbase will decrease by 2.4”. Also, the overall weight will be diminished by a few hundred pounds. Speaking of the changes seen from the outside, the 2015 Mazda 3 will obtain a revised grille in the shape of pentagon and completely new fog lights. Furthermore, the back of the car will be a bit swept up in order to give an impression of a bigger vehicle. Generally, this little Japanese will get a very similar look to its bigger brother, Mazda 6. As for the interior, the cabin will be equipped with a simple, but very elegant dashboard with multi-functional touchscreen.
