It won’t be long before Mazda launch the new 2014 Mazda 3, which we brought you official rendering of a couple of months ago. But before then, the Japanese marque is releasing a redesigned version of the current shape.
Although little has changed externally, Mazda has gone to town improving the experience for drivers and passengers. Features like air-conditioning are now standard across the range, and a USB port and multi-information display provide the Mazda 3i Sport with an entertainment system that was only ever available on the Touring and Grand Touring models.
The Touring model is probably the pick of the updated range. Automatic climate control, a starter button and keyless entry make this the one to go for. But if you have deeper pockets, the fully loaded Grand Touring model is also packed with features, including rain-sensing windscreen wipers and HID headlights.
