2019 Mazda3 Hatchback and Sedan Engine Options

There’s quite a lot of new to explore regarding the 2019 Mazda3 redesign of its hatchback and sedan builds. Of course, any passerby can recognize its new look, but we wanted to go deeper into how the 2019 Mazda3 will perform. So, today we’ll talk about the 5 engine options coming with the release of the 2019 Mazda3!

2019 Mazda3 Gasoline Engines

The 2018 Mazda3 came with 2 engine options. Those were a SKYACTIV®-G 2L inline 4 engine and a SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L inline 4 engine on higher trim levels. These two engine options return, along with a SKYACTIV®-G 1.5L inline 4 engine. This new SKYACTIV®-G 1.5L inline 4 engine is likely to increase efficiency, yet also take a hit in terms of power as it does not seem to be a turbocharged engine.

Additionally, while locked off and only available at higher trim levels, the 2019 Mazda3 will mark the debut of the next generation SKYACTIV®-X engine with its newly fangled Spark-Controlled Compression Ignition System.

2019 Mazda3 Diesel Engine

The last engine option of the 2019 Mazda3 redesign is a diesel engine. That would be the SKYACTIV®-D 1.8L inline 4 engine.

2019 Mazda3 Engine Specs and Fuel Economy

As with the rest of the engine options listed above, horsepower and torque specs, along with fuel economy ratings, have not yet been released. The 2L and 2.5L versions of the SKYACTIV®-G are likely to have the same specs from their place with the previous 2018 Mazda3. However, the SKYACTIV®-G 1.5L inline 4 engine, SKYACTIV®-D 1.8L inline 4 engine, and brand-new SKYACTIV®-X engine are a bit of a mystery. Engine Power output is especially in flux for these 3 engine options, but efficiency is expected to be greatly improved when compared to the previous 2018 Mazda3 engine options.

2019 Mazda3 United States Engine Options

Unfortunately, we also have to be the bearer of bad news for North American Mazda fans. Although all 5 of these engine options will be available at other overseas locations, only 2 will be found for 2019 Mazda3 models manufactured and sold in the USA.

In the United States, the 2019 Mazda3 will first only release with its SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L inline 4 engine, putting it mostly in line with the standard 2019 Mazda CX-5 and 2018 Mazda6 in terms of power output. Later, the next generation SKYACTIV®-X will be brought to the European and American markets.
