The new 2019 Mazda3 made its debut at the LA Auto Show 2018, promising more refinement and more style than its predecessor. Offered in sedan and hatchback form, the new Mazda3 debuts Mazda’s latest iteration of Kodo design language.
Under the hood there’s no hybrid or EV option. Instead, Mazda has a selection of gas and diesel engines, including its new Skyactiv-X engine. That uses compression ignition for diesel-like torque but with up to 30-percent better economy than a gas engine.
Inside, the cabin has a new, “less is more” design aesthetic, and cleaner controls. An 8.8-inch infotainment display is atop the center console.
