New hatch and sedan surface online ahead of official unveiling, just hours away...

UPDATE: And now it's official. Full details here.


With an embargo on the new 2019 Mazda 3 hatch and sedan's global unveiling less than two hours away, a suite of leaked photos have found their way online. According to Jalopnik, 'another outlet' let these ones loose ahead of schedule.

We love a big reveal as much as the next fan, but... Mazda, consider your parade rained on. Hey, few brands make it all the way to embargo these days.

We'll have a full reveal story live at 2:45pm AEDT. In the meantime, enjoy these photos of the new-generation 3. There's a lot more to know than just what you see here, so be sure to tune back in for the full story soon.
