New Mazda3 teased again: hatch and sedan to debut in LA…

The styling of the new Mazda 3 should echo that of the stunning Kai concept

When Mazda released the first teaser video of the all-new Mazda3 last month, it said that the debut will take place in November.

We use the plural because, as you can see in the teaser photo released with the announcement, the 2019 Mazda3 will debut simultaneously as a four-door sedan and five-door hatchback. Previous reports point to the Kai concept as the inspiration for the production Mazda3.

The automaker confirms that the next Mazda3 will sit on the Skyactiv Vehicle Architecture, which should improve driving dynamics.

The fourth-generation version of this compact vehicle is expected to get the firm's new SkyActiv-X gasoline engines, promising reduced fuel consumption and performances similar to diesels.

The Bulls won the AAC regular season title but fell in the AAC Tournament title game to the University of Memphis. The Falcons beat Ball State 5-4 in penalty kicks to win the MAC championship following a 1-1 draw.

Unlike a regular gasoline engine, in which the fuel-air mixture is ignited by a spark, Skyactiv-X will employ an approached used by diesel engines, which compress the fuel until it becomes so hot it ignites. We had the chance to drive early prototypes, and they came in both automatic and manual versions.

Mazda has confirmed that it'll be pulling the covers off its all-new Mazda3 at the Los Angeles Auto Show, which opens on November 28.
