2018 LA Motor Show is nearing its launch, marking the global reveal of the 2019 Mazda 3

In this article, Philkotse.com will bring you an overview of the Mazda 3 2019 showing latest images, specs, price and release date of Mazda’s hot-selling model.

2019 Mazda Mazda3 – First Look – 2018 LA Auto Show

1. 2019 Mazda 3 Exterior

The new Mazda 3 will relatively resemble the Kai concept seen at the 2017 Toyota Motor Show. Easy to spot is a huge front grille and frowning headlamps at the façade. Sportiness is manifested at the long hood and swept back roofline slopping into the trunk.

The vehicle is also more svelte thanks to large rear pillars and teardrop back windows. Particularly, the pillars also help harm over-the-shoulder visibility.

Giving the rear a once-over, we expect that the circular taillights can be swapped for a shape more similar to lights at the front. Unchanged is the boot spoiler that gives the car a more aerodynamic look. New there are twin exhaust pipes. The sedan will get a larger trunk capacity yet without the versatile boxy shape of the regular hatch.

2. 2019 Mazda 3 Interior

The upcoming Mazda 3 gains lots of tech. The most noticeable is a massive infotainment touchscreen, abandoning very few buttons on the center console.

In addition, Mazda has also made the car more premium and upmarket with soft-touch plastics going with streaks of metal throughout the cabin in order that the 3 can square off against the likes of Mercedes-Benz A-Class and Audi A3.

The driving position is now lowered to exude a sporty feel. Overall inside space has also been enhanced with more legroom and a bigger luggage trunk when compared to the 2018 Mazda 3.

3. 2019 Mazda 3 New Engine

The biggest update on the Mazda 3 2019 is its SkyActiv-X petrol mill which allegedly boosts diesel-like fuel efficiency owing to the brand’s Spark Controlled Compression Ignition (SCCI).

This new technology enables the power plant to work in 2 ways:

  • #1: Spark plugs can work like the way any conventional petrol engine does to burn the fuel.
  • #2: The engine can silently switch over to diesel-style compression ignition (where pressure burns the fuel) for better fuel economy.

The SCCI, together with an output of 187 hp and a peak torque of 230 Nm, signal that the supercharged 2.0L unit will be as efficient as a diesel mill, albeit sooty emissions.

The new Mazda 3 will be offered in both diesel and petrol engines inheriting from its predecessor.
