    Mazda Drops A Teaser For Next 3, Expected to Debut Next Month

      Expected to debut at LA Auto Show

    "A New Era Begins November 2018" is the title of video that Mazda has uploaded to their YouTube channel. The sixteen-second video provides brief glimpses of two vehicles. One is a close up of the rear with a sharply raked c-pillar, while the other is a side profile shot. A number of people believe this is our first glimpse of the next-generation Mazda3 - mostly due to elements of the Kai Concept showing up.

    That title also hints at a big change coming with the next-generation 3. The Skyactiv-X powertrain with homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) will be available. HCCI allows a gas engine to use compression to ignite the fuel. This allows for better efficiency and more power.

    We're expecting Mazda to show off the new 3 at the LA Auto Show next month.

    Stay tuned.

    The picture above, I am not a fan of the cut off backside. Video seems to imply same cut off butt. Weird.

    CX-5 also gets the 2.5L turbo?

    The sky-x does actually excite me. I wonder if they'll preview any other displacements too.

    Meh, how about blue, green, or even brown (that is NOT "Titanium flash") ?  And the interiors are either black, black with red stitching, etc., or black and impractical white.

    Which is unfortunately the standard w/ most car makers today...at least the interiors aren't despair gray in Fisher-Price grade plastics as 90% of GM products were in the 90s-00s. ;)

    Mazda never seems to deviate from the same boring colors though.

    Ford has some nice blues. They have a metallic blue on tue focus st that could win even me over.

    I like Kona Blue and Velocity Blue on the '19 Mustang, and Nitrous Blue on the Focus RS.  Too bad they don't dark green or browns..  I like the browns Jeep offers.

    Edit: Ford does have Highland Green on the Mustang Bullitt, that's a good color.  I'd like to see a modern version of Black Jade though.

    Blue is supposedly trending as an automotive color.  For example, Chevy has basically 3 blues on the 2019 Colorado:  Kinetic, Pacific, and Shadow Gray... which is a gray that skews far over into blue territory.

    Blazer looks great in Kinetic Blue, but I cannot be asked to pay for a paint color.

     

    HAHA, look what I'm doing to this Mazda 3 thread... getting it lost in the woods!  :rolleyes:  Sry

    Like every other thread here over the last 15 years.

    I would sell a kidney for a v8 Camaro SS in the Blue GM has out. In the right light that color is unreal.

    Someone in my neighborhood has a 6th gen Camaro in a very nice bright blue. 

    My two favorite sporty car colors right now may be the Challenger in Octane Red (a subtle dark red) and that olive green.

    Yes, it does look nice..as does the blue & white interior in the new X7...that I really like.  But for people that use these as family haulers, I would think those white interiors will look nasty at the end of the lease...

    Grabber Green on a 1970 Boss 302 is one of the best looking Mustangs ever IMHO. I once saw a factory Green 1970 Mustang convertible, probably one of my favorite mustangs ever. 

    The orange Ford puts on the current Mustang is also awesome IMHO.

    Speaking of green Mustangs, a '69 Boss 429 or Mach 1 in Black Jade does it for me.  I don't think the '69 Boss 302 was available in this color, it had only 4 colors in '69 IIRC.

    The back seat in the '69-70 Mustangs is insane..really tiny w/ a big center driveshaft hump.  I rode in the back when I was a kid in my Dad's '69, but couldn't ride back there after about age 10..I was too tall to fit.

    Really the back seat pulled and a cage installed....pro touring style build on the 69 would be awesome.

    Well they've had the same red for yerrs, same pearl white (which is a bear to match) for yerrs... same shade of silver, same gray... Mazda has no imagination when it comes to color and trim.  Harley Earl would be appalled.

    Imagine an MX-5 in yellow, orange, or green, maroon... with saddle leather, or even dark blue leather interior.  A CX-5 or CX-9 would look so good in more earthy colors as well.

    The Miata does seem to have a really limited color palette right now...I remember past generations having yellow and other colors..I recall a dark green w/ tan top and interior version on the first gen model.

    I'm not saying they shouldn't offer a brown. I'm just saying you're complaining about boring and asking for brown..typically a very boring color.

    FWIW, less options usually means less costs.

    I would rather they offer a shade of brown instead of white in the interior..

    One of my neighbours has what I would call a brown CX5 as below but the colour is called titanium flash.

      Last month in the rumorpile, we reported that Mazda would be launching two new engine options for the 2021 3; a turbocharged 2.5L four and 2.0L four. Today, Mazda comfirmed the rumors with the announcement of 2021 3.
      The turbocharged 2.5L four-cylinder is an engine we know quite well as it powers the CX-5, CX-9, and 6 sedan. Output is rated at 227 horsepower and 310 pound-feet (or 250 hp and 320 lb-ft when running on 93 octane). It will come solely paired with a six-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. This model will be positioned above the top-line Premium trim and adds such items as a heated steering wheel, enlarged exhaust tips, and 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels,
      As for the 2.0L SkyActiv-G four-cylinder, again its an engine we know from the last-generation 3 and CX-3. It produces a modest 155 hp and 150 lb-ft. This engine is only available on the sedan.
      We don't have any word on pricing, but we're guessing that 2.0L sedan will be around $20k to $21k. As for the turbo, expect base prices possibly between $28k to $32k. The 2.0L sedan arrives at dealers in August, while the turbo comes in towards the end of the year.

(July 8, 2020) – The launch of the fourth generation Mazda3 stirred emotions with its bold yet sophisticated styling.

Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) today announces the addition of the turbocharged Skyactiv-G 2.5T engine to the 2021 Mazda3 powertrain offering.
      Connected and engaging driving dynamics mean road trips are no longer just for special occasions. Each experience in the 2021 Mazda3 2.5 Turbo feels more pronounced and spirited.

This engine is specifically calibrated to the Mazda3 so as to deliver the unique driving dynamics expected by our most passionate drivers. The evolution of Mazda’s turbo engine brings a sense of refinement befitting the brand’s recent updates to the i-Activ all-wheel drive (AWD) system. The high torque characteristic of the Skyactiv-G 2.5T paired with the predictive i-Activ AWD create harmony with the driver’s intentions — delivering greater responsiveness and confidence.
      The Mazda3 2.5 Turbo comes standard with Apple CarPlayTM and Android AutoTM, Mazda Connected Services with three-year trial and in-car Wi-Fi hot spot with six-months or 2GB trial, Bose® 12-speaker premium audio, 8.8-inch large center display with Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio, two front USB inputs and Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry.

The Mazda3 2.5 Turbo sedan also features a gloss black front grille and sleek lower front bumper decoration.
      The new 2021 Mazda3 2.5 Turbo with Premium Plus Package heightens the refined styling with a gloss black rear lip spoiler for the sedan while the hatchback is equipped with a gloss black rear roof spoiler and front air dam. Further supporting driving confidence, this top-tier package introduces all-new i-Activsense safety technologies. Rear Smart City Brake Support with Rear Cross-Traffic Braking will automatically apply the brakes when the vehicle is in reverse, if an obstacle or a crossing vehicle is detected. The 360° View Monitor with front and rear parking sensors is now available on the Mazda3 with high-definition digital clarity. A new convenience feature, Traffic Jam Assist enhances Mazda Radar Cruise Control by providing steering inputs at speeds under 40 mph. These advancements in safety technology build upon other features such as Mazda’s Active Driving Display and Adaptive Front-lighting System, which help the Mazda3 stand out among entry-level premium vehicles. The Premium Plus package includes leather seats, navigation and adds HomeLink to the frameless auto-dimming rearview mirror.

Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) today announces the addition of the turbocharged Skyactiv-G 2.5T engine to the 2021 Mazda3 powertrain offering.
      Connected and engaging driving dynamics mean road trips are no longer just for special occasions. Each experience in the 2021 Mazda3 2.5 Turbo feels more pronounced and spirited. The Skyactiv-G 2.5T engine will deliver an impressive 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque with premium (93 octane) fuel or a solid 227 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque with regular (87 octane) fuel. This engine is specifically calibrated to the Mazda3 so as to deliver the unique driving dynamics expected by our most passionate drivers. The evolution of Mazda’s turbo engine brings a sense of refinement befitting the brand’s recent updates to the i-Activ all-wheel drive (AWD) system. The high torque characteristic of the Skyactiv-G 2.5T paired with the predictive i-Activ AWD create harmony with the driver’s intentions — delivering greater responsiveness and confidence.
      The Mazda3 2.5 Turbo comes standard with Apple CarPlayTM and Android AutoTM, Mazda Connected Services with three-year trial and in-car Wi-Fi hot spot with six-months or 2GB trial, Bose® 12-speaker premium audio, 8.8-inch large center display with Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio, two front USB inputs and Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry. Complementing the feel of refined performance, heated leather wrapped steering wheel with paddle shifters, frameless auto-dim rearview mirror and chrome finishes around the push button start and glove box are exclusive to the turbo offering. Other interior features include Mazda’s Active Driving Display head-up unit, power moonroof, dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, leatherette seating, leather wrapped shift knob and aluminum speaker grilles. To encourage peace of mind, the Mazda3 2.5 Turbo includes standard i-Activsense safety technologies such as Mazda Radar Cruise Control with stop and go function, Smart Brake Support, Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning with Lane-Keep Assist, Driver Attention Alert, Adaptive Front-lighting system and High Beam Control. Additional standard equipment include larger tailpipes, 18-inch black aluminum alloy wheels, gloss black heated door mirrors, “TURBO” badge on the trunk and on the engine cover, rearview camera, LED daytime running lights, automatic on/off LED signature headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers and a shark fin antenna. The Mazda3 2.5 Turbo sedan also features a gloss black front grille and sleek lower front bumper decoration.
      The new 2021 Mazda3 2.5 Turbo with Premium Plus Package heightens the refined styling with a gloss black rear lip spoiler for the sedan while the hatchback is equipped with a gloss black rear roof spoiler and front air dam. Further supporting driving confidence, this top-tier package introduces all-new i-Activsense safety technologies. Rear Smart City Brake Support with Rear Cross-Traffic Braking will automatically apply the brakes when the vehicle is in reverse, if an obstacle or a crossing vehicle is detected. The 360° View Monitor with front and rear parking sensors is now available on the Mazda3 with high-definition digital clarity. A new convenience feature, Traffic Jam Assist enhances Mazda Radar Cruise Control by providing steering inputs at speeds under 40 mph. These advancements in safety technology build upon other features such as Mazda’s Active Driving Display and Adaptive Front-lighting System, which help the Mazda3 stand out among entry-level premium vehicles. The Premium Plus package includes leather seats, navigation and adds HomeLink to the frameless auto-dimming rearview mirror.

      2021 is going to be a very interesting year for the Mazda3 as two more engines become available.
      According to separate reports from Jalopnik and Hagerty, Mazda will be dropping in the turbocharged 2.5L four-cylinder found in the 6, CX-5, and CX-9. The engine produces 227 horsepower on regular or 250 on premium. Like other Mazda models with this engine, the 3 will have it paired only with a six-speed automatic. Both reports say the engine will have AWD as standard. According to Hagerty's source, the engine will be available on a new trim called Premium Plus - likely taking the top spot in the 3's trim lineup. The source also confirmed this engine will not mean the return of the Mazdaspeed name for a hot variant. 
      The other engine is a 2.0L four-cylinder that Jalopnik reports is only for the sedan. Hagerty believes this engine is the SkyActiv-G used in the previous-generation 3, not the SkyActiv-X with its compression-ignition system.
      Not surprisingly, Mazda said they "“have not announced any details for the 2021 Mazda3," when asked about this.

    • About 75 here in central Jersey today, mostly overcast but hasn't rained in I think 2 weeks. Might get some Tuesday. Building a 24x20' deck for a customer...
    • I so can relate as what the wife wants and what is available are two different things. Best of luck finding that warm mocha brown interior in the auto he wants.
    • Totally expect it to as we are scheduled to get 7 feet of snow in the mountains by Saturday. https://snowbrains.com/mount-baker-7-feet-fresh-snow/ Early Ski season I hope!   Theaters here are all closed and not expected to open till after the new year. I am hoping they will do premium streaming as a James Bond Fan, I am excited to see Daniel Craig's final movie. I do wonder about Tom Hardy as his replacement. Seems we keep getting shorter and shorter James Bond's. Also, while the fan in me loves all the songs, I do think that some of the older songs are way over rated compared to some of the newer songs. Maybe a boomer rated them.
