Curtains lifted on 2014 Mazda3 at 10th Anniversary Celebration Event

Bill Jacobs Auto Group prepares to add 2014 Mazda3 to new vehicle lineup

JOLIET, Ill., June 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Mazda's best-selling car is back and better than ever in 2014, as the new Mazda3 was unveiled at a global event hosted Wednesday in Manhattan. While its best-selling performance over the past ten years has set the pace for compact cars, Mazda boldly delivered a car with significant exterior design changes and a technology-packed interior. Despite the unveiling, Bolingbrook Mazda customers and Mazda3 fans around the country shouldn't expect it to arrive at Bill Jacobs Mazda and other local dealerships for several months.


Bill Jacobs Mazda is among Illinois elite Mazda dealerships and specializes in providing new Mazdas, used cars in Joliet, IL, and premier Mazda service from factory-trained technicians.

As Mazda embraces its new Game Changers mentality, the automaker heavily implemented its "Soul of Motion" Kodo design language in the exterior of the 3rd generation compact sedan.  With a front end resembling the 2014 Mazda6, the new Mazda3 replaces its predecessors' smiling front grille with a more predatory face and a lower, leaner stance. In true Mazda fashion, the 2014 Mazda3 is decked out with the entire Skyactiv technology suite to improve fuel economy and optimize performance.

"Skyactiv technology and Kodo have performed as advertised and received critical acclaim, with even more technologies and materials to be introduced with the 2014 Mazda3. On the heels of the launch of the 2013 CX-5 crossover SUV last fall and the 2014 Mazda6 early this year, this is an exciting time for Mazda, and we're only getting started," said Jim O'Sullivan, president and CEO – Mazda North American Operations.

The driver-centric interior features cutting-edge technologies including an Active Driving Display Panel that shows navigation information, vehicle speed, and other statistics on an automatically folding display. The new compact sedan also provides text-to-voice features for SMS text messages, email, and social media.
