Mazda has revealed the latest versions of its popular 3 Fastback and hatchback models, which are due to go on sale in the UK from October 1.
Subtle exterior changes, as well as an updated cabin have been introduced across both the hatchback and Fastback range, and Mazda’s Skyactiv-Vehicle Dynamics technology has also made its debut.

Externally, the new Mazda 3 is differentiated from its predecessor by a revised grille that Mazda says has a “stronger three-dimensional look”, and a new front fog light bezel. The door mirrors have also been tweaked, now featuring wrap-around indicators, while the rear bumper on hatchback versions has been completely reworked.

In the cabin, the switch panels and handle bezels are supposedly now of higher-quality, while a newly-designed trim insert also features on the dashboard. An electric parking brake opens up space on the centre console, and a leather steering wheel is also included. This is heated if paired with leather seat upholstery.

The new Mazda 3 will go on sale in the UK on October 1, and will be priced from £17,595 to £24,195.
