SANTA MONICA, Calif. Spy photographers caught the new 2009 Mazda 3 prototype during testing, and the photos prove that the new Mazda 3 is undergoing a major redesign for the 2009 model year.

Like the 2009 Mazda 6, the new Mazda 3 gets a much more aggressive design. Riding on the next-generation global Ford Focus C1 platform, the Mazda 3 will be slightly wider and longer than the current model.

The current 148-horsepower 2.0-liter motor will get a modest power increase, and the optional 2.3-liter inline four-cylinder will be upgraded to 2.5 liters. The increased displacement should provide a 20-30-hp boost.

The spy shots also reveal a new exhaust setup at the Mazda 3's rear.

What this means to you: Mazda's 3 is getting bigger and brawnier, with more power.

BHR has not learned that driving a milly can also be fun........he still thinks it can't tow, remember?


Tow? He thinks it is made of sugar and melts in the rain :)

I like, probably my next purchase as an everyday driver so I can retire the milly to weekends and extra cash.

2.5 is getting big for a petrol four cylinder... in the days of Eunos we had sixes ranging from 1.8 to 2.5 litres...

It depends if you count 4 cylinder diesels, there was an Isuzu 4WD wagon with a 3.1 litre turbodiesel.
