The vehicle will make its debut at the Los Angeles Motor Show 2018 on November 28th.

When Mazda released the first teaser video of the all-new Mazda3 last month, it said that the debut will take place in November.

Judging by the teaser image released with the announcement it's safe to say that both the sedan and hatchback versions of the model will be shown.

Mazda says the new model will adopt a "richer interpretation" of the brand's so-called Kodo design language, while also claiming the "fundamental performance attributes" of the auto have been "raised to a new level". It's safe to say the promising Kai concept (pictured below) is an accurate blueprint of what to expect from the road-going auto.

"So of course I understand entirely how that should operate", he said. Prince Charles and Meghan reportedly have a very strong relationship.

It will also feature the car's SKYACTIV-Vehicle Architecture and will be available with a choice of SKYACTIV engines.

One of the most important assets of the next-gen 3 will be under the hood where we'll find a SkyActiv-X (pronounced "ex" not "ten") engine. This mature looks will be complemented by the new performance levels made possible with the use of a new generation of Skyactiv engines.

The prototype's engine has been engineered to work with a six-speed manual gearbox as well as an automatic with the same number of gears.

As a result, Mazda says the two-liter SKYACTIV-X will produce 30 percent more power than the current SKYACTIV-G of similar displacement.
