The all-new 2019 Mazda3 five-door and sedan will arrive at dealers in March. Notable for the new generation is available all-wheel drive on both body styles. For the new year, Mazda is offering every trim with the 2.5-liter (non-turbo) Skyactive G engine. The engine produces a generous 186hp and also 186 lb-ft of torque. We have driven that engine in the Mazda3 previously and it is more than enough power to spin the wheels in the first three gears. The manual transmission is still available, but only on the middle trim of the five-door hatchback.
The 2019 Mazda3 will also be the first Mazda3 with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This infotainment technology will separate the Mazda3 from rivals like the BMW X2, Toyota Corolla Hatchback, and other brands that only offer Apple CarPlay. The AWD system of the Mazda3 further helps to separate the car from the Hyundai Elantra line, which only has front wheel drive. Few of Mazda's peers now offer such a complete package.
Here are the prices for the 2109 Mazda3. Please, note that an $895 delivery fee is added to cars in 49 states and $940 is added for Alaskan residents:
Preferred trims offer upgrades such as Bose Premium audio, heated front power seats, and SatRad. Premium trims are available with AWD and feature leather seating, a head-up display, active (swiveling from side to side) headlights, and a power moonroof.
