Henderson Mazda Drivers - 2019 Mazda3 Year End Review
If it wasn’t already evident that Mazda was making inroads in refining its lineup, the 2019 Mazda offerings leave no doubt that the brand is firmly committed to providing cars and SUVs that come with features usually found in premium vehicles. Certainly, models like the 2019 Mazda3 provide luxury features with a price tag that’s much lower than premium models. The Mazda3 also offers exceptional driving dynamics that its rival just can’t match. These are some of the reasons the 2019 Mazda3 is a popular model at Henderson area Mazda dealers.
The beautifully wrapped sheet metal of the 2019 Mazda3 is sure to turn heads. The Mazda3 comes in four-door sedan and five-door hatchback body styles, providing buyers at the Mazda dealer near Henderson with plenty of choice. And the Mazda3 is now available with four-wheel drive, which makes this compact car even more of a threat to the competition.
The 2019 Mazda3 Is Beyond Ordinary
The automotive experts at Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com wrote: “There’s still plenty of that intrinsic “zoom-zoom” in the new Mazda3. In fact, we think the 2019 Mazda3 is its best version yet. ... Mazda’s engineers have done such a good job that the 3 retains its status as the most athletic car in its class. With its taut architecture and excellent steering feel, Mazda’s compact sedan and hatchback are made to carve corners. Even more impressive are this new Mazda3’s newfound levels of quiet. It has the hushed ride of a premium car.”
The Mazda3 seats five. Buyers can choose from one of four trim levels: Standard (sedan only), Select, Preferred and Premium. The 2019 Mazda3 employs a 2.5-liter engine that achieves 186 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque, matched to a standard six-speed automatic gearbox. The hatchback version of the Premium trim has an available six-speed manual.
All models get standard front-wheel drive. The optional all-wheel-drive-system can be had on all trims except the base sedan. The all-wheel drive system combined with Mazda’s standard G-Vectoring Control Plus provides exceptional handling. Fuel economy is excellent, with an EPA-estimated 27/36 mpg for models with front-wheel drive, the automatic gearbox and cylinder de-activation technology.*
Inside, you’ll find a sophisticated cabin that looks decidedly upmarket. The Standard sedan comes with cloth seats, while the other models get faux leather or real leather. The door panels and dash feature high-quality soft-touch materials. All trims feature an 8.8-inch display.
The seats are comfortable and supportive. The hatchback model gets more than 20 cubic feet of space for cargo, while the sedan gets 13 cubic feet in the trunk. The 60/40-split folding rear seats make it easier to stow and transport larger items.
The IIHS gave the 2019 Mazda3 its top marks of Good in all crash tests and the highest score of Superior for front crash prevention. The organization also named the Mazda3 a Top Safety Pick.
