The first official info I've come across for the 2007 Mazda's is on their official site: www.mazdausa.com
-click tab "INSIDE MAZDA"
-click on "News from Mazda" from dropdown menu
-click on "View News from Mazda" arrow, on right-hand side
-Click "Product" tab along the top
-then click on specific model you want
I clicked on Mazda 3 and a page came up with into titled "2007 Mazda Mazda 3 Overview"

Sorry to burst your bubble, but this information has been up at that "Ford" page for at least 6 months.
I am still waiting for NEW information on the Mazda website.

they`re really slow on this.. really slow... Mazda Canada doesn`t even have a News section, should i guess they don`t really care or what?

Thanks for starting this. I'm waiting for the 07's - been told by multiple dealers "end of August".
Anyone know if they will charge extra for the white as they did on the 06? Dealers unwilling to answer that one.

This is my first posting to Edmunds. I didnt know if I should have clicked "respond" or "start a new thread" but here goes. First, I must add my thanks for starting a 2007 thread. Like many of you, Ive had a very hard time finding info on the '07 models. This thread is perrfect!
Here is my question/concern: We are ready to buy but the problem is color. I, and especially my wife, do not like metallic colors. And the Mazda micas are ultra metallic looking. (I know, we're the minority, most love metallic.) Are there any colors besides the true red that are not metallic? We'd buy this instant if we could find a regular white or black. It's important enough to my wife that it could kill the whole deal and send us looking at a Honda Fit again--despite the fact that they are adding a grand to the MSRP(trying to add $2K.) Or, we might look at a 2005 model.

I spoke to a dealer today and he said he had 12 come in late last week and they sold 6 over the weekend. He says the grey is the hot color (not what I'm looking for).
So - sounds like they are hitting the dealerships - I'm in No. Ca. I understand they have a plant in Irvine, Ca. so we may be seeing them a little earlier here on the West coast.

Anyone know if the blue/black sport seats are still available like in the 06? I never liked the red/black I was always seeing, but never actually saw the blue seat in person. Anyone seen then or has them and want to commnet about them - do you like them?

I never liked the red/blue coloring on the seats either. I got a 2007 Mazda 3i Touring and the seats are black with a touch of gray on the seats and on the cloth above the door handles. They look much better than the funky blue/red. I know they're offering the gray this year in addition to the blue/red because it's more traditional and less faux sporty.
#22 of 63 2007 Colors

The "Ice Blue" has shown up in lists as one of the new 07 colors for Mazda3. However, three days ago I talked to a dealer on the phone and his "official dealer info" (whatever that is) does not include Ice Blue. Anyone know what's real anymore?? (ha)

My "official" eyes tell me that ice blue is indeed a color for the 07 Mazda3's. I saw and drove a sedan in ice blue. I rather liked the color but we want a non-metallic color.
I asked this a couple of posts above this: Is there any non-metallic color in the '07s besides the true red? (true red, by the way, is not even close to true red. Its orange-red. Better name would be tomato red.)
I know there is metallic pearl white that can be had for extra $, but isn't there just a plain white?
How can Mazda not offer just white?!
