The 2019 Mazda 3 has many reasons to be talked about and finally be owned. This all-wheel-drive compact car from Mazda met with all the senses of practicality with the value for heightened interior luxury place it at much higher a place than that.
The lineup of 2019 Mazda 3 consists of both sedan and hatchback body styles. While the Sedans are named as base, Select, Preferred, and Premium versions, hatchbacks can be ordered only at the Select trim level.
But in spite of sharing the same model name they appear as completely different vehicles from some perspectives. The ones who knows how Mazda works, they will surely realize that this was quite an intentional move from Mazda to make these models look that way. Most probably, with the 2019 model of Mazda 3, the automaker wanted to draw the buyers from both the segments of sedans and hatchbacks. Mazda designed the sedan model of Mazda 3 to be simultaneously sporty and formal, and the hatchback to be more free in its spirit without much formal boundaries.
The interior of the new 2019 3 series from Mazda however stays same for both designs. The disposition is more towards being formal while offering a warm and premium ambience to the car occupants. All this made the Las Vegas car dealers choose the Mazda 3 model to be their focal selling point, and that worked.
Power Packages Offered
All the trim levels of 2019 Mazda 3 series are essentially powered by a 2.5-liter inline-4 engine in tune with a 6-speed automatic transmission at the base, and a 6-speed manual transmission offered only at the top trims of the lineup. The standard configuration for all these trims is all-wheel drive, as it has proved its mettle on the slippery surfaces time and again by proactively sending the right amount of torque to the wheels to stay stable on the grip.
Mazda declares that its new 3 series is the first set of vehicles that it has developed making everything as driver and passenger oriented. Both the sedan and hatchback hold the capacity to carry five-passengers and are overall counted among compact cars. They roughly share the same size with the rear seats flipping forward to get more cargo space and allow easy access. But the Hatchback models measure about 8 inches shorter in length than the sedans, but surprisingly have more cargo space.
Mazda has banished touchscreens, to keep the drivers attentive on the road that can’t go distracted during that precious fractions of a second. Mazda replaced that with an 8.8-inch high-contrast screen on the dash which is not a touchscreen and a navigation that works through a Command Controller placed right on the center console.
