We are waiting for the arrival of the 2017 Mazda 3 to come our way but we have seen what the vehicle looks like before it is launched. This is down to the fact that the Japanese version of it was upgraded recently and this has the name of the Mazda Axela.
The Mazda Axela arrived with looks that are the same as on prior versions with the headlights, bumper and grille being treated to a makeover. The 2017 version is also coming with a brand new set of turning lights.
The 2017 Mazda Axela offers up the 1.5 litre Skyactiv D diesel engine but it should come with more choices.
It is thought that the 2017 Mazda 3 will get the 2.2 litre diesel along with the 1.5 litre Skyactiv G petrol engine and we have heard that there may be the Skyactiv hybrid petrol electric engine.
