If you're ready to believe UK publication Auto Express, the above is the new Mazda3.

Let's skip to the meat of it, shall we? Word is that an aggressive-looking MPS version of the new 3 is definitely on the cards, into which Mazda is expected to shovel the 5-cylinder turbo from the Ford Focus XR5, offering in the vicinity of 190kW.

Folks, I'm a believer.

Based on the Ford Focus and with the skilled hands of the crew behind the MX-5 to set it right, the new Mazda3 is likely to see power ranging from 1.4 litre to 2.0 litre petrol engines, as well as a couple of diesel options in the shape of 1.6 and a 2.2 litre units.

Visually, the 2010 Mazda3 really is a treat, and ought to ensure the continuing success of the 3's performance on the showroom floors. Mazda's famed Nagare design language is well at home here, with the same sharply-styled headlights and outspoken flared guards of the 6 making of the strongest points of the new design. Combined with a wide-open grille and swept-back air-intakes to the sides of the front bar, the new 3 has "willing accomplice" all over it.

Unlike the previous 3, Auto Express say we can expect to find soft-touch plastics in the Mazda6-inspired interior. Getting on the enviro-bandwagon, the new 3 will be built from a selection of biodegradable materials, making it that much more chummy with the tree-huggers.
