Default All-New 2019 Mazda3

Teased Again, LA Auto Show World Debut Confirmed







When Mazda released the first teaser video of the all-new Mazda3 last month, it said that the debut will take place in November.

Now we know exactly when that will happen, as the Japanese carmaker has confirmed the Los Angeles Auto Show (November 30-December 9) as the venue for the world debut of its new compact models.
We use the plural because, as you can see in the teaser photo released with the announcement, the 2019 Mazda3 will debut simultaneously as a four-door sedan and five-door hatchback.

The automaker says the 2019 model marks the beginning of a whole new generation of Mazda cars “that will deliver new dimensions of driving joy to customers around the world.”
The fourth-generation Mazda3 will use the new SkyActiv-Vehicle Architecture which is said to be stronger and provide better ride quality. Mazda says the new platform “enables people to make the most of their natural sense of balance,” suggesting intuitive handling characteristics.

The new model will also pack the latest SkyActiv engines. Mazda doesn’t get into details, but says the new powertrains “offer responsive control of vehicle speed in any driving situation.”
We do know that one of the new power plants will be the SkyActiv-X gasoline engine featuring Spark Controlled Compression Ignition. The 2.0-liter unit is expected to deliver around 190 horsepower and 170 lb-ft (230Nm) of peak torque.

Styling-wise, the all-new Mazda3 adopts “a richer interpretation” of the carmaker’s Kodo design philosophy.
The teaser photo partially reveals that the hatchback will be the more emotional model, adopting design cues from last year’s Kai Concept. As for the sedan, it appears to go for a more traditional design, allowing Mazda to shoot two birds with one stone.
The official drawings we brought you last month revealed that the interior will carry influences from the Kai study as well. Expect the all-new Mazda3 to go on sale globally in the first half of 2019.

All-New 2019 Mazda3 Looks Sleek Inside And Out In Best Photos Yet









Ladies and gentlemen, these are the very first spy shots of the upcoming 2019 Mazda3 hatchback.
Scheduled to debut later this month at the LA Auto Show both in hatchback and sedan body styles, Mazda’s all-new compact model looks promising in these first spy shots.
Our photographers spotted a fully-camouflaged prototype in Europe during testing and even got a peek at its interior. Fortunately, Mazda didn’t bother disguising the cabin that much.
As you can see in our gallery, engineers tested the all-new Mazda3 alongside a VW Golf and Audi A3. Furthermore, a current Mazda3 was also part of the test group.

The design may be a bit toned down compared to the Mazda Kai Concept…

Both the bodywork and the cabin reveal clear influences from the Kai Concept, although the 2019 Mazda3 obviously looks a bit toned down in comparison.
The new Japanese compact hatchback displays harmonious proportions and striking details. Those include the sharp headlights and taillights, the gaping grille, as well as the dynamic treatment of the C-pillar. All of the above are influences from the Kai Concept.

Inside, the dashboard is also reminiscent of said study, adopting a similar layout with as few buttons as possible. As with the concept, the instrument panel features three round gauges and the steering wheel has three spokes. The big difference compared to the concept is the addition of a floating central touchscreen that breaks the continuity of the dashboard but is a “necessary evil.”
The prototype seems to be a well-equipped model that features red leather upholstery, leather-wrapped dashboard with contrast stitching, and polished-aluminum trim, among other materials.

… but the technology certainly isn’t

The all-new Mazda3 will be the first production vehicle to use the automaker’s SkyActiv Vehicle Architecture. The new platform is expected to bring improved refinement, a lower seating position, and better handling.

But its main contribution will be the radical new engine technology called SkyActiv-X that features Spark Controlled Compression Ignition (SCCI). The 2019 Mazda3 will feature a 2.0-liter SkyActiv-X gasoline engine that promises to combine diesel-like fuel economy with the performance typical of a petrol unit.
The SkyActiv-X engine will deliver 190 PS (187 hp) and 230 Nm (170 lb-ft) of torque, but Mazda will also offer two cheaper and smaller gasoline and diesel units carried over from the outgoing model.
