When is the full reveal happening? Should be another giant seller for Mazda here in Australia. Fingers crossed Mazda finally releases a proper performance version of the 3, otherwise it will never get the street cred it needs. Also hoping for a larger choice of colours this time around

The rear of the hatchback is horribly thick looking. #ungainly This is supposed to "grace" the LA Auto Show.

One hopes the new Mazda engine is more impressive in terms of fuel economy gains than what Nissan has been able to produce....

Wonder if Mazda is sharing engine tech for mild hybridization and electric cars....

A vocal minority as per usual i'd say

It is odd it's gracing LA, not cause of its looks but due to it's less than stellar sales in the US. Should have done it somewhere in Asia or Australia.

You would be contrary for the sake of being contrary.

I'd second cosworth in respect that I find the hatchback attractive looking; Daring and concept car like (even if rear visibility is likely very bad); There are enough boring designs out there, I'm sure the Skoda Scala (e.g.) wil cater anyone who prefers their hatchback to look like it'S 2002....

Mazda needs sales saviors and this isn't it.
