Rumor has it that this is what the next generation of the Mazda3 four-door sedan and five-door hatchback may look like next year. 

Even though the company says that these leaked photos are digital renderings made to display the new Kodo design language, rather than the real car, we can get an idea of how the car will look. 

As you can see the design of the hatchback and sedan versions of the 2014 Mazda3 is heavily influenced by the recently presented Mazda6, having a similar front grille with a chrome trim flowing into the headlight. 

Besides that we know that the new „3” will be the next Mazda model to benefit from a full suite of SKYACTIV technologies, so the car will have a lighter platform and body, and will be more fuel-efficient.
