Update: Mazda3 Review.

2009 Mazda3 rendered speculation

Update: After further investigation you may all be pleased to know these images are not from Mazda but are in fact the work of a very talented (or not, judging by the current feedback) amateur car designer.

Several images purportedly that of an upcoming Mazda concept car have found their way onto the web.

Current speculation suggests this is a precursor to the all-new Mazda3 hatchback, not scheduled to launch globally until 2009.
