Greater L.A. Auto Show

Mazda Motor Corp. will debut its new Mazda3 sedan at the Los Angeles auto show in November.

The new model, which has undergone its first full redesign in five years, boasts a “more refined sport ride, top-class fuel economy and quietness,” the auto maker says. The car also will feature a new front fascia and other “dynamic” design elements.

In North America the sedan will come with either a 2.0L or 2.5L engine. Mazda will reveal a 5-door hatchback version for other parts of the world at a later date.
