  • Mazda3 to debut in LA

The 3 name was first used for the hatchback in 2003, with the last-generation auto first hitting showrooms in 2014. Mazda claims the new Mazda3 takes the Kodo design language to a "more mature interpretation".

In recent times, Mazda has created some stunning production and concept cars including the Kai, Vision Coupe and updated 6.

However, in saying that, Mazda has confirmed it will use the latest Skyactiv engines to ensure "responsive control of vehicle speed in any driving situation". This Skyactiv-X engine should deliver more torque and improved fuel economy compared to current Skyactiv-G engines.

(1) Press days are November 28-29.


The Japanese brand says its new Mazda3 marks the beginning of a "whole new generation" of cars. I'm excited to see how this thing turned out, and how the company improved the prototype I drove in August of previous year. The Mazda3 has been around since 2003, with the upcoming model set to be the fourth-generation. This decision is allowed to silence the four-cylinder mill in the same vein. It seems things are going to be "very challenging" due to the higher-pressure fuel system and the new engine's explosive nature of compression ignition. In the end, the premium European automakers are trying their best to make their diesel engines silenced.

Mazda is accelerating a push into electrified vehicles, planning a slew of introductions by 2021 to help avoid European Union fines for failing to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
