What’s Next For the Mazda3?
The 2013 Mazda3 is one of my favorite vehicles on the lot and a favorite with our customers. The compact sedan is light, fuel, efficient, and has a sporty look that makes you want to drive it. Driving the Mazda3 makes you think you’re behind the wheel of the ultimate sports sedan, but it comes at a price that most can actually afford. Right now, we’re offering it for as low as $16,790. Understandably, I’m getting very excited for what the next Mazda3 will bring.
The 2014 Mazda Redesign
There’s not much to go on just yet about the next Mazda3, but the 2014 edition will mark the start of a new generation and that means a major redesign. Following in the steps of the latest Mazda CX-5 and the newest Mazda6, the Mazda3 will be sure to demonstrate the manufacturer’s current Kodo styling. This means a more powerful look with an upright grille and headlamps that exude aggression.
Introduced for the 2012 Mazda3, the Skyactiv four-cylinder engine—a 2.0L capable of 155 hp—will probably stick around, though maybe with some tweaking, but expect better performance and fuel economy. How can that be possible? Well, Mazda has made a commitment to reduce the weight for every new generation of their cars.
Cars these days are loaded with more features than ever and are bigger than ever making them harder to move around reducing fuel economy. With fuel economy on every driver’s mind, Mazda has taken it upon themselves to make their vehicles just as user-friendly while taking out the weight. Considering the current Mazda3 can get 40 mpg on the highway, I can’t wait to see how much it improves!
A turbocharged Mazaspeed3 is also being talked about as is a diesel version of the Mazda3, which would be quite nice too. Diesel-powered cars have exceptional fuel economy and you can find diesel at pretty much any gas station these days.
