The 2019 Mazda3 Offers Two Engines
The new 2019 Mazda3 comes with either a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 155 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque. This engine is paired with six-speed manual gearbox in most models and only the GX and GS versions can get this powertrain.
The other option is a more powerful 2.5-liter SKYACTIV-G engine with 186 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque. This engine in the sedan can only be paired with a six-speed automatic but you can get it with a six-speed manual in the Sport model.
The 2019 Mazda3 Comes in Two Versions
And what is the 2019 Mazda3 Sport? It’s one of two Mazda3 models you can order with the first being the sedan. Of course, the Sport being a hatchback is going to have more cargo space. Exact specs haven’t been released, but we are not far from 600 liters.
It’s One of Just Two Compact Vehicles Offered with All-Wheel Drive
The biggest novelty on the 2019 Mazda3 is the addition of optional all-wheel drive. Available starting at $26,000 on the sedan and $27,000 on the Sport, all-wheel drive is paired with six-speed automatic and the powerful 186-horsepower engine. Thanks to all-wheel drive, you get perfect traction and grip in any situation.
And because of SKYACTIV technology, even all-wheel drive Mazda3 models are more fuel-efficient than their direct Subaru Impreza competitor.
