Mazda teases its all-new 3 ahead of Los Angeles debut

Mazda teases its all-new 3 ahead of Los Angeles debut

Mazda has revealed a teaser image of the next-generation 3 vehicle ahead of its world unveiling.

In recent times, Mazda has created some stunning production and concept cars including the Kai, Vision Coupe and updated 6.

A teaser photo accompanying the announcement suggests Mazda will reveal both the sedan and hatchback variants at the LA show, with a debut presumably scheduled for November 28.

On the tech front, the CX-5 finally gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, accessed through a 7.0-inch display; a BOSE 10-speaker sound system that makes sure your tunes always sound good; and a Homelink wireless system that can automatically open the garage door when you get home. One change we notice is the rear window drops down sharply unlike on the old model, where it comes to a gradual point. Meanwhile, fundamental performance attributes have been raised to a new level. As in other models, the 2.5-liter turbo-four produces 227 hp (or 250 hp on 93-octane fuel) and 310 lb-ft of torque.

A new engine for the Mazda3 will use spark plugs to initiate compression ignition. We had the chance to drive early prototypes, and they came in both automatic and manual versions.

The auto will make its debut at the Los Angeles Motor Show 2018 on November 28th.
