I think the MazdaUSA site mentions side curtains being offered. Also as mentioned preliminary specs say it will be offered in a package with ABS.
Canada must have a different system but Mazda not offering side air bags on the Mazda3 in the USA is total suicide. Even the Hyundai Accent, which starts at $9999, has standard side air bags.

Wait a second. I thought the white on the Mazda3 was the same thing as Pure White on the Protege. The white on that page says A4D. The Mazda Protege white is A3D and the Mazda6 white is A2N. So this is a completely new white?

Yes, Strato Blue code is 25E, I wrongly type it in my page. Thanks for pointing it out. I think the BP5 showed is correct. For US market, the Strato Blue should come with BP5.

Color wise, A4D and A3D are very similar (You can hardly tell the difference by looking at them). The Mazda6 white however is different.

Yeah I figured they would be pretty close to each other. Maybe I'm imagining things, but I always thought the Protege white looked a little better than the Mazda6 white.

just me, but i thought i saw something that said there was no 4 cyl. hatch, or was it no 4 cyl wagon. i know they said you will be able to get a 6 cyl./5 sp wagon.

I think it is the wagon that is only getting the 6-cyl.

BUT AT LEAST THE STICK, TOO.
AND HOPEFULLY NO RUST.

why doesn't Mazda import these from Japan for the US market? Why? So I could get a hatch NOW!!! And no rust issue. Plus, if they don't do well, save money in plant tooling costs at Flat Rock.
Maybe they can import one for me. 23Z please.
just my .02
