2019 Mazda 3 Hatchback Redesign and Release Date
Since it first debut in 2003, the Mazda 3 has been creating a solid record for the sales. They presented the third generation in 2013 with growing popularity in the market. It got some updates in 2016 but we glad to hear that they are currently working for the new 2019 Mazda 3 that will be the fourth generation although Julien Montousse, the North American design director only stated that it would borrow some styling cues from the Mazda RX-Vision concept.
2019 Mazda 3 Changes
So far, the RX-Vision concept is the sportiest design presented by Mazda and it seems impossible if they use all the aggressive features for the new 2019 Mazda 3. It seems they will only offer the hatchback with similar grille as well as sleeker headlamps in chrome frame. The grille will be toned-down without honeycomb mesh but horizontal slates. The V-shaped grill is completed with full and elegant side intakes together with a slight opening under it. A new fender vent will be added to the sides that are identical to the RX-Vision, slightly revised roof line will be provided as well as new wheel designs. The styling should be the same as the current proportions but it can be a bit longer and wider for a four-door sedan.
A brand new interior will be added for the redesigned exterior. It has a clean and simple layout with several features for a more modern look. The revised control layout will be provided as well as the larger infotainment screen, new center console, redesigned instrument cluster and new steering wheel with a sportier look than before. The front and rear seats are redesigned to give you a higher level of comfort with the increased legroom, shoulder, headroom too. 2019 Mazda 3 is assumed to have two-tone leather upholstery, more aluminum trim and better materials.
2019 Mazda 3 Engine
It is safe to say that they will give small change with the use of four-cylinder engines but still 1.5, 2.0 and 2.5 liters of capacity. The smaller engine will be offered for the European and Asian market.US market will get 2.0 and 2.5 liters. We hope that the diesel front has redesigned version of the old four-cylinder and 2.2 liters for the new 2019 Mazda 3. Getting seven-speed dual clutch unit is possible.
It is too early to talk about the price but it is assumed that the new 2019 Mazda 3 will be more expensive compared to the current model. This four-door sedan may have $17,800 for the base and the five-door hatchback is about $18,500. It will come out as 2017 model year which we expect to come sometime in the next year.
