There seem to be a hot debate going on here of readers choosing between the 2014 Mazda3 Sedan and Kia Cerato. Adding more spice to the wasabi/kimchi battle, here are more photos of the booted Mazda3 to supplant the six we had yesterday, courtesy of web leaks from Auto.cz and Guideautoweb.

UPDATE: A fresh gallery of the 2014 Mazda3 hatchback has surfaced – see it here

In these new pictures the Mazda3 Sedan does look like a shrunken Mazda6, which is no bad thing. The side profile especially appears purposeful and taut, with heavily sculpted body panels and Mazda’s trademark comically large wheelarches featured prominently.

It sure is beautiful with the large wheels as pictured, though how it will look with smaller wheels (inevitable in the lesser models here) remains to be seen. No further technical details have been released as of yet – we’ll have to wait for the official reveal for that. Or, you can use the new Mazda3 Hatchback as a close reference as they’re not likely to differ much.
