Mazda has announced UK pricing and specifications for the all-new Mazda 3 hatchback, which is available to order now.
Prices start at £20,595 (OTR).
The Mazda 3 will intitially be offered with a Skyactiv-D diesel engine and a Skyactiv-G petrol engine.
The brand’s innovative new compression ignition Skyactiv-X powertrain will be launched later in the year.
CO2 emissions for the new 1.8-litre diesel range from 106g/km to 126g/km, with fuel consumption of up to 58mpg.
The engine develops 116PS and can accelerate the Mazda 3 from 0-62mph in 10.3 seconds. It replaces the existing 1.5-litre and 2.2-litre diesel engines.
From launch, the only other engine available will be the 122PS 2.0-litre petrol. It emits from 115g/km and can reach 62mph in 10.4 seconds.
Both engines are available with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
When the Skyactiv-X joins the range, it is expected to develop 180PS and offer “diesel-like” efficiency.
Five trim levels are offered: SE-L, SE-L Lux, Sport Lux, GT Sport and GT Sport Tech.
Every model in the line-up features sat-nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus an advanced eight speaker audio system.
From SE-L Lux onwards, highlights include a reversing camera, smart keyless entry and heated front seats.
