Mazda has unveiled its 2019 Mazda3. Available in hatchback and sedan variant, the car will launch with a 2.5-liter gasoline Skyactiv-G engine.
Rated to deliver 188ps at 6,000rpm and 252Nm of torque at 4,000rpm, the engine has been developed with fuel efficiency in mind. This means that cylinder-deactivation will come as standard.
Mazda continues to offer its 6-speed manual transmission. While the 2019 Mazda3 is also available with the Skyactiv-drive 6-speed automatic transmission.
Mazda is also expected to introduce its compression-ignition-equipped Skyactiv-X powertrain to the Mazda3 line-up later in the year.
