Whether it was intentionally leaked or not, the 2014 Mazda3 sedan looks great and could set a new compact car standard.
Exactly a week ago, Mazda officially unveiled the 2014 Mazda3 hatchback. It looks fantastic inside and out – if you're a hatchback-loving person. For those who aren't, the new 3 sedan is now here. Leaked by Top Gear Russia, the 2014 Mazda3 sedan is quite the looker from every angle and is basically a scaled-down version of the larger 6 sedan - and that's a very good thing. There also appears to be absolutely zero difference between the 3 sedan and the hatch, other than the trunk.
That wonderfully designed and very Audi/BMW-esque interior could very well end up setting a new compact car standard. Overall, Mazda's new Kodo design language is a solid winner and we can't wait to see the next MX-5 which will be the Japanese automaker's next debut. For now, official details haven't been released for the 3 sedan. But other than pricing, we already know everything there is to know about the car. Enjoy the photos.
