2019 Mazda 3 – Is It Really Coming?
The last generation of the 2019 Mazda 3 already has some years and the signs of the time start affecting the sales. After all, it was back in 2013 that it was launched the current generation.
Even though the 2019 Mazda 3 isn’t confirmed yet, most rumors are pointing to this release. And if Mazda wants to keep on getting sales, they really need to make a redesign and provide customers with other engine options.
Make sure to take some time to check out the latest automotive news and rumors.
2019 Mazda 3 Release Date
At the moment, there is no official data for the release of the new 2019 Mazda 3. However, we are expecting to see its debut during 2018, towards the end of the year. It should arrive at dealer shows right after that.
2019 Mazda 3 Price
While in the United States the starting price of the 2019 Mazda 3 should remain below the $19,000, in Europe the prices will probably be a little more expensive.
2019 Mazda 3 Redesign and Changes
Although the release of the new 2019 Mazda 3 is not confirmed yet, we believe that it will. One of the main reasons is the fact that Mazda has updated the SkyActiv platform. This means that the new 2019 Mazda 3 should become lighter and more flexible, offering a more smooth and comfortable drive. They will be using a lot of aluminum parts which will also aid with the decrease of the weight.
We are expecting to see a modern 2019 Mazda 3 with a bigger front grille and with more aggressive LED headlights. The bumper should also suffer some changes to fit the new design.

2019 Mazda 3 Specs
The current version of the Mazda 3 includes 4 different engines even though in the United States you only have 2 available.
For the new 2019 Mazda 3, we believe that the 2.2-liter turbocharged diesel engine will not be used again. While it works fine, the problem is that it isn’t exciting enough for most people.
The base model of the European 2019 Mazda 3 should come with a 1.5-liter inline-four engine which is capable of producing 110 of horsepower and 115 pound-feet of torque.
Most rumors are also stating that Mazda will not be using the 2.0 and 2.5-liter naturally aspirated SkyActiv engines again. Instead, they are going to replace them with what should be called the SkyActiv-X and should be the 2.0 and 2.5-liter versions.
The engine that is probably coming with the base model should be a naturally aspirated engine that should be able to produce 200 of horsepower.
In what concerns with the gearbox, most rumors are pointing to either the 5-speed automatic or to the 9-speed automatic transmission. This will depend on the engines Mazda ends up offering.
2019 Mazda 3 Interior
We believe that the interior of the new 2019 Mazda 3 will practically remain the same as the one of the current generation. It should have a control panel with a minimalistic design but the materials used should be better. The infotainment system should be upgraded to a more recent version as well.
In terms of safety and security, the 2019 Mazda 3 should also include the latest technologies. However, at the point, it’s impossible to say which ones will come as a standard and which ones will be optional.
