Mazda's new 3 sedan has been given an official unveiling this week, following a series of leaked images that surfaced in the Russian press last week.

Styled as a cross between its hatch sibling and the larger 6 sedan, the new sedan rounds out the 2014 Mazda3 duo that should hit Australia early next year.

As you'd expect, the mechanical package and features of the new 3 sedan largely mirror the hatch, with Mazda's petrol and diesel engines, manual and automatic transmissions, and a more spacious interior in both models.

Depending on the market, both bodystyles will be offered with 74kW/150Nm 1.5 and 88kW/210Nm 2.0 litre petrol engines, along with a 110kW/380Nm 2.2 litre diesel.

For now, only the 2.0 litre petrol engine is scheduled for Australia, and it's unlikely we'll see the 1.5 litre mill. Both the six-speed manual and automatic transmissions will be offered here, however.

Mazda Australia has also confirmed its interest in the diesel model, although it remains unclear if we'll see that option here.

But, with the battle for top spot on the line, it could take the return of a diesel model to help the 3 beat Toyota's popular new Corolla.

Although the same length as the previous model at 4460mm, it offers more room inside, a wider track, a 60mm longer wheelbase, is 25mm lower at 1455mm.

Rear storage capacity in the sedan is listed at 419 litres - falling short of the new Corolla sedan's 452 litres - while the hatch offers 350 litres with the rear seats up and 1250 litres when lowered.

We won’t see the new 3 here till Q1 next year. For now, Mazda Australia soldiers on with the still-popular second-generation model.
