Mazda 3

Mazda Motor Corporation today began production of its next 'new generation' vehicle. The new car - to be named MAZDA 3 in the majority of global markets, "Axela" in the Japanese market - is the fourth all-new Mazda developed under the company's sharply focused product creation system. It will follow closely the success of the MAZDA 6 (known as the Atenza in Japan), MAZDA 2 (Demio) and Mazda RX-8. The newest Mazda will make its official debut at the 60th Frankfurt Motor Show in early September 2003.
