With the new design for the 2019 Mazda upgraded interior quality and sharp eye-catching exterior. In addition to technology upgrades, you also get the driver’s safety and comfort features that many buyers are looking for.
With the upgrade options and all-wheel drive, the Mazda3 can quickly jump in price from $ 21,000 for the sedan and $ 23,600 for the hatchback to $ 31335 Mazda3 Hatchback AWD with Premium Package and the option that I tested.

I love the flowing, sporty lines of the Mazda3 hatchback. The grille dominating and aggressive front end provides a compact car is a lot of character and fits in well with the driving dynamics. Mica paint is gray polymetal looks spot-on for the Mazda3 and accentuate the appeal of this new design is well.
Although there is a very large C-pillar, part of the car behind the rear door and rear window, the design is still working very well and the visibility was not terrible. Plus you get a blind spot monitoring on Select Trim and up. At the rear of the car, a small spoiler and dual-LED rear lights accentuate the style and complements the overall look of the hatchback.
In it you are in for a treat thanks to the high profile of the two-tone red and black throughout the cabin tester Premium Package. This combo and stylish new interior looks like something you’d find in much more expensive vehicles.
The seats are comfortable and the unit was heated. Both front seats offer good support throughout and bolsters are not aggressive, so it is convenient for a longer trip. Headroom and legroom are OK in the front seat, but you’ll know that you were in a small car when you are in the cabin. the rear seats are very small. It’s uncomfortable to sit for a long ride in the back seat Mazzda3 if you are a tall adult. There is a center fold-down back seat to offer cupholders and work for young people. The rear seat does not display the vents on the center console or a place to plug in for charging.
cargo space is down slightly from the 2018 model hatchback and even with it is limited. A week of food for two people will fit in the back or a set of golf clubs, but if you need to carry a lot of luggage or other items, plans to fold into a chair.
2019 Mazda3 2.5L 4-cylinder wrap SkyActive G engine under the hood. It delivers 186 horsepower and 186 lb-ft. of torque and is the only engine choice. I tested the six-speed automatic with all-wheel drive. You can configure the Mazda 3 with a six-speed manual or with front-wheel drive option.
This combination holds up well on the way to the rapid acceleration of the line. Mazda says you’ll go 0-60 in 7 seconds, but it feels faster than that when you’re in the driver’s seat. This is a fun car to drive, especially when you head to the winding road and threw the car into the corner. The all-wheel-drive provides impressive grip during spirited driving and on wet roads.
Mazda has actually improved technology in the 2019 Mazda3. It includes a beautiful display 8.8 inches and runs a new version of Mazda infotainment system. The screen looks great and the rise of the dashboard with a beautiful corner design. It is located deep in the dashboard because you are using a dial on the center console to control. It’s not a touch screen, but the dial works better than the trackpad on some other vehicles. After a few days, I adjusted by using the dial in the software Mazda. This system supports the Apple and Android Auto CarPlay standard, which is an easy to use quickly. You can also connect with Bluetooth. The sound system is very good in this little cottage.
There is an optional wireless charger for $ 275, to $ 475 Navigation and frameless mirror auto-dimming that includes garage door opener button. Wireless charger handy, like a mirror upgrade, but if you plan to use Android Auto or Apple Carplay, you can skip the navigation package.
Safety and driver Aids
There are many tools available that help drivers with driver confidence and very convenient to travel again. On Select and top trim level, you get some of my favorite features including;
- Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert
- Lane Keep Assist & Lane Departure Warning
- Radar cruise control with stop and go.
- Smart Brake Support
Blind-spot monitoring make it less stressful to change lanes in traffic, rear cross traffic alert help when it withdrew from the parking lot and radar cruise simplify long trip and time spent stuck in traffic. Smart brake support to help slow the vehicle if the car senses a potential collision ahead. Lane Keep Assist helps keep you in your lane when driving on the highway, take some of the need for constant correction of the driving experience.
With the Premium Package, you get the Adaptive Front Lighting, which is a fancy way of saying the lights rotate with the wheel a little so that they light the way in which you will not appoint off of your turn. Combined with an already large LED lights, this dramatically increases driving at night.
