The current Mazda3 is proving pretty popular popular these days with sales up 28% so far in 2007. With new versions of the Mazda2 and Mazda6 having been unveiled already this year, the 3 looks to be the next in line for new skin. This photo that may or may not be authentic sure looks plausible. It features the prominent front fenders seen on other recent Mazda designs along with the swept back head lights and similar side glass shape to the current generation five-door 3. So far there's no indication of when we might see a new Mazda3, but if it does look like this it should build on the record of the current car.
