Is This the Next Generation Mazda3 Hatch? Please Help to Identify [Spied]

2017 2018 mazda3 hatch spy prototype
Is this the next Mazda3 hatchback?

More often than not it’s straight forward to identify the make and model of a camouflaged prototype. That’s not the case with these images sent in by a TFLcar reader. This hatchback was spied testing in the Rocky Mountain of Colorado. We don’t have a clear shot of the front of the car, but the overall shape reminds us of a Mazda3.


The detail that raises questions is the small triangle window by the a-pillar. The other guess we have is that this a GM prototype.

Can you help us identify this prototype?
