Mazda’s engineers don’t have it easy. The automaker's reputation for building affordable, fun to drive, fuel-efficient vehicles has become so legendary that its engineers have to achieve greatness time and time again. Well, they’ve come through with the redesigned 2019 Mazda3.
All-new this year, the 2019 Mazda3 remains one of Mazda’s least expensive and most fuel-efficient products. It’s also still one of the most fun-to-drive cars in the extremely competitive compact class. Now in its fourth generation, the Mazda3 has improved in essentially every way, from its sexy new shape, to its high-quality interior, to its performance. And for the first time, the Mazda3 is offered with all-wheel drive. Built in Japan, the new Mazda3 is available as a four-door sedan or a versatile five-door hatchback, with prices starting right around $22,000. It competes with a long list of popular cars, including the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Hyundai Elantra, Kia Forte, Subaru Impreza, and Volkswagen Golf and Jetta.
