When the 2014 Mazda 3 hatchback was revealed last week, we were told photos of the inevitable four-door sedan variant would emerge in roughly two weeks. It appears the wait ended before it even began, thanks to Top Gear Russia, which just leaked photos of the new 2014 Mazda 3 sedan in Euro-spec guise.
The sedan’s appearance isn’t shocking, as it looks like a trunked version of 2014 Mazda 3 hatchback. The notchback’s profile does not diminish the swoopy lines of the hatch, though, and the 3 sedan looks just as sporty and fresh as its five-door sibling. The 2014 3 sedan also takes numerous cues from the larger 6 sedan with near-identical taillights and a similar greenhouse. Like the current 3 sedan, the new model maintains a high trunk lid, giving the car a wedge-like shape and a poised stance.
An interior image suggests the 2014 Mazda 3 sedan will continue to share its interior with the hatchback model. As such, the new car gains a vastly upgraded cabin, complete with a driver-oriented instrument panel and a new infotainment system, complete with an upright screen placed above the center stack and a rotary control knob located on the center console.
Pricing has yet to be announced for the 2014 Mazda 3 and the new models will go on sale in the U.S. sometime later this year. We will be driving the 2014 Mazda 3 in hatchback and sedan forms in a few weeks, and we’re hoping that our driving impressions live up to the surprisingly stylish lines. For now, check out the photos below.
