Mazda's new Mazda3 (pictured) will go on sale in the UK in hatchback and saloon versions in January priced from £16,695 for the 1.5-litre Skyactic-G petrol 100ps SE hatchback, rising to £23,345 for the diesel 2.2-litre 150ps Sport nav auto hatchback.
Diesel variants will start at £19,245 for the 2.2-litre 150ps Skyactic-D SE (in both body styles).
The all-new Mazda3 line-up will feature 21 hatchbacks (including eight diesel models) and 15 saloons (fastbacks), five of those with diesel power.
There will be five equipment levels (SE, SE Nav, SE-L, SE-L Nav and Sport Nav).
Prices for SE models start at £16,695, SE-L versions cost from £18,495 and Sport Nav derivatives will be priced from £19,895.
"As well as combining Mazda's fuel-saving Skyactiv technology and the striking ‘Kodo - Soul of Motion' design theme, the all-new Mazda3 raises our traditionally generous equipment levels to a new high, outperforming many established C-segment rivals in terms of innovation, specification and price," said Peter Allibon, Mazda UK sales director.
All models will come with smart city brake support (SCBS) which helps to reduce or prevent low-speed collisions by automatically applying the brakes if the driver fails to act, hill hold assist (HHA) to prevent roll back and will introduce new internet connectivity with ‘Aha' and ‘Stitcher' app integration.
