In addition to the facelifted MX-5, Mazda will give an Australian premiere to the all new Mazda3 at the Melbourne International Motor Show, starting on 27 February.
Two Mazda3 models will be on show, a Sunlight Silver Mazda3 Maxx Sport sedan and an SP25 hatchback in Celestial Blue. Doug Dickson, Mazda Australia Managing Director said, “The new-generation Mazda3 has a more expressive and emotional design that emphasises dynamism, and has the driving excitement and agility to back it up.”
Last month the current Mazda3 topped the Australian sales charts. An amazing effort really for a hatchback, and for a manufacturer outside of the more traditional Holden, Toyota and Ford.
New-Generation Mazda3 to Star at Melbourne Show
The next generation of the Mazda3, Australia’s best-selling car, will make its long-awaited Australian debut at the Melbourne International Motor Show on February 27.
The new-generation Mazda3 sedan and hatch promise even higher levels of quality, practicality, performance and value that took the first-generation Mazda3 to the top of the sales charts in January.
“The new-generation Mazda3 has a more expressive and emotional design that emphasises dynamism, and has the driving excitement and agility to back it up,” said Mazda Managing Director Doug Dickson.
“Combined with the class-leading features and equipment that deliver the great value Mazda is renowned for, this new-generation Mazda3 is a worthy successor to the classy small car that has consistently been among Australia’s top sellers.”
Two new-generation Mazda3 models will grace the Mazda Melbourne motor show stand; a Sunlight Silver Mazda3 Maxx Sport sedan and a sporty Mazda3 SP25 hatchback in Celestial Blue.
The Mazda stand will also host the Australian debut of the new Mazda MX-5 roadster. This mid-life MX-5 makeover not only ramps up the visual aggression, it includes a host of mechanical enhancements all designed to reinforce the Mazda MX-5’s status as the world’s favourite roadster.
The Melbourne International Motor Show runs from February 27 to March 9, 2009.
