Default may be next year?

The current Mazda 3 is nice but getting old. When this is out on the road, many Mazda 3 drivers will feel like they're driving an old Toyota Corolla or Nissan Sunny...

It's an All-New Mazda3 Sedan, not just a facelift. Don't think it'll be out in Sg anytime soon though, as it will only be reveal at LA Auto Show on Nov 19 2008 according to this press release:

All-New Mazda3 Sedan to Debut at the 2008 Los Angeles Auto Show

Hiroshima, Oct 08, 2008 (JCN Newswire via COMTEX) ----Mazda Motor Corporation has confirmed that the sedan version of the all-new Mazda3 (known as Mazda Axela in Japan), fully redesigned for the first time in 5 years, will be revealed at the Los Angeles Auto Show*1 on November 19, 2008.

The covers will be pulled off during Mazda' press conference from 12:20 to 12:45 (local time) revealing the all-new Mazda3, the latest evolution of Mazda' Zoom-Zoom spirit.

Every element of the all-new Mazda3 has been developed for heightened exhilaration, with a more refined sporty ride, top class fuel economy and quietness. Environmental and safety features, based on Mazda's long-term "ustainable Zoom-Zoom" vision, aim to achieve a balance with fun-to-drive. Add in a new expressive face and Mazda's dynamic design elements, and the all-new Mazda3 is everything a driver could ask for in a sports compact.

The brand new version of Mazda's best-selling sports compact carries forward the heritage of Mazda and the pedigree of the current Mazda3. Since its launch in 2003, the current Mazda3 has sold approx. 1.8 million vehicles*2 in over 100 countries and has won more than 90 global motoring awards*3 to date. The Mazda3 accounts for almost one in three Mazdas sold every year.

Following the world debut of the North American specification sedan with 2.0- and 2.5-liter engines at the show, the five-door hatchback version will be revealed in line with Mazda's global sales schedule.

*1 The press days are November 19 and 20, and the public days are November 21 through 30.

*2 Currently Mazda's top selling model globally, with one of the highest production volumes of any single model in Japan.

*3 Awards include: Car of the Year in Russia, Canada, Spain, Israel, Thailand, Hong Kong, Indonesia, etc., and European Car of the Year second place.
