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

"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.

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.

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...

Complains about boring colors and then asks them to show their cars in BROWN. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Brown can be a great color.   Lots of variations.  Way more interesting than boring ass silver or white.

Absolutely, but he complained on Mazda using red, not silver or white.

Mazda's red is awesome btw.

They recently had Guard Green on their trucks/SUVs/Mustang.
