Spring is here, which means it’s a great time to get behind the wheel of a new car! The changes Mazda made for 2019 are sure to please — fans of the old models are bound to love what’s new for this year.
The whole fleet has been upgraded, and road conditions are finally ideal to feel the breeze in your hair with the latest models as you take out a 2019 Mazda for a spin. Let’s look at some of the 2019 upgrades found in Mazda’s most popular vehicle, the Mazda3.
Mazda3 Gets SKYACTIV
For the first time in the car company’s history, the famous SKYACTIV-Vehicle Architecture is available in the Mazda3.
The i-Activ all-wheel drive uses 27 sensors to predict changing road conditions no less than 200 times per second. Once the car understands what the roads are like, it distributes power to each wheel as needed. Essentially, the car has a mind of its own, which instructs the body’s systems on the safest way to drive given the current road conditions.
The 2019 Mazda3 actually has an evolved form of i-Activ technology that saves fuel by distributing power to the wheel at precisely the moment it’s needed. This year’s upgrades are both smart and efficient. Fans of the SKYACTIV system in the Mazda’s popular CX-5 are going to love it in the automaker’s beloved sedan.
Upgraded Handling and Braking
Mazda’s G-Vectoring Control Plus will make you love driving the 2019 Mazda3 even more. The systems for steering and braking have never been built with more precision, making for a smoother ride for the driver and passengers alike.
G-Vectoring Control Plus was first introduced in 2017, but the finely-tuned handling of the 2019 version cannot be believed until you drive it yourself.
Mazda3 –Redesigned Inside and Out
In keeping with traditional Japanese aesthetics, the new Mazda3 tends towards minimalism while remaining absolutely captivating. The exterior lines on the car suggest motion, even while the car remains still.
The new 2019 Mazda3 has a quieter cabin than ever, with unnecessary vibrations and engine noises muted, but not altogether silent. This was carefully balanced so as not to wholly remove road sounds associated with driving while creating an atmosphere that is altogether more pleasant.
Other cabin upgrades include newly designed seats with additional lumbar support, and the Mazda Connect user interface software was redesigned for a heightened user experience. There is also a premium sound system available, with Bose speakers newly repositioned to create the acoustic feel of a concert hall.
You spend long enough in your car, so it’s important to feel comfortable and enjoy the way you interact with the technology. These were the kinds of changes that the automaker felt they could add to this year’s Mazda3 that would make fans of previous models only love the new Mazda3 even more.
With the approach of snow-free roads on the horizon, and so many high-end features added to an already beloved car, there’s never been a better time to start driving Mazda’s most popular car! Contact your local Mazda dealership and book a test drive today.
