Mazda is set to launch five all-new SkyActiv models between now and 2015 – including a Nissan Juke rival called the CX-3 SUV, shown in our exclusive image.
The new Mazda 3, launched at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, goes on sale here in January, while a new 2 supermini is also expected next year, and is likely to be powered by 1.3 and 1.5-litre SkyActiv engines.
Mazda has already confirmed that it’s working with Alfa Romeo to develop the next MX-5 with a new Spider.
Mazda Europe boss Jeff Guyton said: “Both cars will use a very similar platform, but will have their own unique ‘top-hat’ [exterior and interior design] and powertrains – although Mazda will build both cars at its Hiroshima plant [in Japan].”
Beyond that, Mazda is expected to replace its slow-selling 5 people carrier with a new seven-seat CX-7 crossover.
