It’s been known for sometime now that the an all-new Mazda3 would drop in 2019. Finally, Mazda has confirmed the exact launch plan by confirming its debut later this month at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
In an effort to announce the reveal, the company has also dropped the above teaser shot. The shot actually shows off a fair amount of the new compact car; enough to conclude that some of the styling cues appear to be influenced by the Kai Concept.
The teaser shot also concludes that Mazda will reveal both sedan and hatchback variants of the new Mazda3 at the same time.
Aside from the small teaser, there isn’t a lot of detail on the new 3 just yet. Mazda has confirmed the car will be built atop its new SkyActiv Vehicle Architecture, which is supposed to be stronger and offer better handling dynamics than today’s car.
We also know that one of the engines offered the in the fourth-generation Mazda3 will be the brand’s new SkyActiv-X gasoline engine, which features Spark Controlled Compression Ignition, or homogeneous charge. The 2.0-liter engine is expected to generate 190 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque.
