2014 Mazda3 Hatchback Scoop: Could This Be It?

Regular readers will no doubt remember that the upcoming, new generation 2014 Mazda3 hatchback has had its fair share of supposedly official but ultimately fake rounds of photos over the past few months. That said, we cannot but take this photo, which reportedly first appeared on a Russian Facebook account, with a grain of salt – even though it does look like it may be real, with all the design details matching up to the camouflaged prototypes we’ve seen this year. Until we learn more about the origins of the picture and whether it’s authentic (feel free to chip in if you have any intel), let us remind you that the Mazda6-inspired compact hatchback is set to launch as early as this fall, meaning a Frankfurt Motor Show world premiere in September may very well be in the cards.
