As it turns out, yesterday's premature release of half-a-dozen photos of the brand-new 2014 Mazda3 Sedan was only the tip of the iceberg, as 37 high-res images of the compact model turned up on the web today.
Carscoops reader Mr Frisko pointed us towards the Czech website "Auto" for the new batch of photos that give us a better perspective ofMazda's fresh entry in the segment, in terms of both quality and quantity.
We'll stick to our initial impression that it looks like a more compact Mazda6 (or a Japanese version of the Maserati Ghibli for the masses with a teeny-weeny bit of fantasy), and that's a good thing, in our opinion at least.
In the way of information, there's nothing really new as the Czechs simply confirm that the sedan shares its entire engine lineup with the hatchback, with three gasoline and one diesel unit in Europe.
Some of the Mazda3 Sedan's competitors in the Old Continent include the VW Jetta, Ford Focus and Opel Astra, while in North America it will also rival the Honda Civic and Hyundai Elantra, among other compact saloons.
