The Mazda Mazda3 is due for its next complete redesign in 2019. Unfortunately, reliable details have not yet been revealed as far as what the next generation will entail. It will reportedly be the first step away from the brand's Kodo design theme and will eventually set the tone for future Mazda styling.
The Mazda3 continues to be an important vehicle for Mazda after the CX-5 crossover as its bestselling model in 2015. However, it trails segment leaders like the Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic and Ford Focus in overall sales by an overwhelming margin.
That being said, the Mazda3 continues to rank well in comparisons and has been a favorite among driving enthusiasts. Will Mazda be able to continue to offer a compelling offering for drivers looking for a less-vanilla option in the small car segment? That remains to be seen.
The 2019 Mazda Mazda3 is currently expected to debut sometime in 2018. Check back for the latest updates as they become available.
