Mazda3 teased ahead of LA motor show reveal

Mazda3 teased ahead of LA motor show reveal

In a statement handed out today Mazda said the 2019 Mazda3 will showcase a "more mature interpretation of Kodo design", which is set to be inspired by the Mazda Kai concept. The compact model will also show off the next-generation Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture as well as the latest development to the brand's Skyactiv engines.

The Mazda3 is still a terrific little vehicle, but it's about to get a chunk better with the arrival of an all new Mazda3 arriving at the Los Angels Motor Show at the end of the month.

Mazda is about to reveal the 2019 Mazda3 in Los Angeles this month.

(1) Press days are November 28-29. The manufacturer states that the Mazda3 marks the beginning of a new generation of models delivering "new dimensions of driving pleasure". In the prototypes, Mazda's engineers had to add special foam in the engine bay to silence the four-cylinder mill in the same vein as premium European automakers strive to make their diesel engines quiet.

Trump administration blocked from ending DACA protections
Legislation to extend protections for DACA recipients and provide them a path to citizenship failed in Congress this year. Trump's action sparked an outcry from immigration advocates, business groups, colleges and some religious leaders.

A fresh teaser image proves that a Mazda 3 Fastback will be unveiled alongside the new hatchback.

According to Mazda CEO Akira Marumoto, the SKYACTIV-X engine will power higher trim levels, while base-trim cars will come with the standard SKYACTIV-G 2.5-litre unit, an engine that has proven reliable and thrifty in current Mazda cars and SUVs.

The CX-5 will feature the 2.5-litre turbo engine from the CX-9 and Mazda6, which means a bump in horsepower to 250; and a healthy helping of torque, some 310 lb-ft to be precise.
