Before you decide to buy the 2019 Mazda3, do your research properly. If you’ve made up your mind to make the purchase, here are some things to know before taking the plunge:


  1. Performance Is Worth Your Money

Whereas previously only available on the upper trims, Mazda's larger 2.5-liter SKYACTIV-G engine® now comes standard. So with a Mazda3, you get even more performance for your money. The SKYACTIV-G engine® will indeed produce around 186 horsepower. The fuel economy has been boosted by the standard automatic stop/start technology. You can expect to get around 27 mpg in city traffic and 36 mpg on the highway.


  1. You Get the All-New SKYACTIV-X engine®

A lot of time and effort went into designing Mazda’s all-new SKYACTIV-X engine®. This cutting-edge engine will conserve a lot of fuel with the advanced ignition system and a high compression ratio. For your 2019 Mazda3, you should be able to witness a combined rating of nearly 40 mpg.

  1. An All-Wheel Drive 

Up until now, the Mazda3 was only available with a front-wheel drive. But with the new 2019 model, Mazda manufacturers are finally offering an i-ACTIV AWD system®. This especially comes in use for those who will be driving the car during harsh winters. Since the i-ACTIV AWD system automatically adapts to the varying road conditions, you won’t have to press any buttons. The fuel economy doesn’t take a hit with the all-wheel drive of the 2019 Mazda3.

  1. Sporty Handling Will be Delivered

The redesigned 2019 Mazda3 is touted to be one of the sportiest cars in the class. Containing the agility of a genuine sports sedan, the car retains its athletic nature due to its standard G-Vectoring Plus system. Handling around corners becomes easier with this technology as well. You can find a larger set of 18-inch performance tires on the upper trims. 

  1. Amplified Curves on the Exterior Styling

One of the greatest features of the Mazda3 has always been its sharp exterior styling. If you thought the old model was a head-turner, the new Mazda3 goes above and beyond. The new model comes equipped with stellar curves. With the inner fascia highlighted by a striking grille and slim headlamps, the rear fascia looks especially sleek. 

  1. Dynamic Stereo Systems Available

Music lovers are sure to love the new Mazda3 interior. The base model has an upgraded stereo system and also boasts a total of eight speakers. The 12-speaker audio system from Bose provides superior audio quality. Bose was able to optimize bass production by placing the subwoofer outside the interior. 

  1. An Improved Mazda Connect Infotainment System

The infotainment system of a car often serves as the focal point of the Mazda3 interior. The new Mazda3 comes with an updated Mazda Connect interface, including a larger 8.8-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone support. The feature that makes the Mazda Connect more rewarding to use is the combination of sharper graphics and a better menu structure. 

  1. Packed with New Safety Technologies

The reliability of the new Mazda3 increases due to the new safety innovations that have been added to the model. The new Driver Monitoring System lets you monitor factors such as eye movement so as to detect whenever the driver appears to be sleepy. The Mazda brand has also introduced a new Cruising and Traffic Support system to make driving in congestion less nerve-racking by providing steering and braking assistance.

  1. Revised Active Driving Display

Some drivers have a habit of looking down at the speedometer while driving. In order to prevent this from happening, Mazda manufacturers have developed an Active Driving Display which projects the gauge cluster’s information directly onto the windshield. Viewing with the 2019 Mazda3 model is made  easier with the improved textual UI. There is also the Traffic Sign Recognition that helps you avoid speeding and missing road exits.
