Mazda3 Teased again, set for world debut at LA Auto Show

Mazda3 Teased again, set for world debut at LA Auto Show”

However, in saying that, Mazda has confirmed it will use the latest Skyactiv engines to ensure "responsive control of vehicle speed in any driving situation".

Mazda has released a picture tease of its all-new 3 as the model prepares to make its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

The 3 name was first used for the hatchback in 2003, with the last-generation vehicle first hitting showrooms in 2014. The Mazda3 has been around since 2003, with the upcoming model set to be the fourth-generation.

According to Mazda CEO Akira Marumoto, the SKYACTIV-X engine will power higher trim levels, while base-trim cars will come with the standard SKYACTIV-G 2.5-litre unit, an engine that has proven reliable and thrifty in current Mazda cars and SUVs.

So, Mazda's 2.0-liter supercharged SkyActiv-X will combine the petrol-like performance with the fuel economy of a diesel, as it can run on a leaner air-fuel mixture.

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. It may mean that diesel era comes to its end for Mazda.

The new generation of Skyactiv engines which will be used is called X, or more officially Spark Controlled Compression Ignition (SPCCI) Skyactiv-X.

Mazda says the Kai, which translates as "the pioneer", showcases the next generation of its Kodo design language and features its "ideal" hatchback proportions. The technology allows produce 190 hp and 230 Nm of torque.
