2019 Mazda3 release date

Keep reading, learn all about the 2019 Mazda3 release date, and see the new Mazda3 for yourself.
2019 Mazda3 engine overview
For 2018, the Mazda3 had two engine options, but the all-new 2019 Mazda3 is blowing that figure out of the water.
In all, there are five engine options for the 2019 Mazda3. The lineup starts with three traditional gas engines with a 1.5-liter, a 2.0-liter, and a 2.5-liter engine option.
On top of that, there is also a 1.8-liter diesel engine option, but that’s not even the most innovative option. That honor goes to the SKYACTIV®-X engine.

We don’t know much about actual specifications for this engine yet, but it uses the new spark controlled compression ignition or SCCPI which uses gas and promises the power of a gas engine while providing the efficiency of a diesel engine.
Will the 2019 Mazda3 have AWD?
Most might assume that the Mazda3 would avoid an all-wheel-drive powertrain. Most compacts in its class don’t have AWD. Mazda is different, Mazda likes to buck trends, and the 2019 Mazda3 will be available with an all-wheel-drive option.
Transmission options available for the 2019 Mazda3
With all the major drivetrain changes, some people may be afraid that the manual transmission option is going away. That is certainly not the case. There will be both a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic transmission. However, much like the AWD option, we do not know what engines these options will be available with yet.
When is the release date for the 2019 Mazda3?
The 2019 Mazda3 is coming very soon. In fact, despite not having pricing information or configuration entirely available yet, Mazda has committed to bringing the 2019 Mazda3 to North America in early 2019. However, with that said, we do not know if all engines and features will be available at that time. To see a current new Mazda3 inventory in Fond du Lac WI, click the link below.
