The Next Mazda 3 Will Debut In LA And It's Going To Look Stunning

Report

It will also be a technological powerhouse.

Mazda’s conquest of stunning automotive designs will continue this November at the Los Angeles Auto Show when it reveals the next generation Mazda 3 sedan and hatchback. According to Auto Express, the fourth-generation model will go further upmarket as part of a trend Mazda is doing with its entire lineup. Not only that, the 2019 Mazda 3 will feature a ton of new technologies, perhaps most notably the SkyActiv-X gasoline engine. It features what Mazda calls Spark Controlled Compression Ignition, or SCCI.

Typical spark plugs are required for combustion, but the tech allows for a switch to diesel-style compression ignition. In other words, the spark plugs are used for consistent combustion, allowing for gasoline engine performance with diesel engine-like fuel economy. We also spoke to Mazda Europe design director Kevin Rice last March at Geneva and he strongly hinted the new 3 will look an awful lot like the gorgeous Kai Concept. We can easily live with that. The interior will also represent quite a significant leap forward compared to the current and previous generation models. Even higher quality materials and fit and finish are expected.
