The premiere of the new Mazda3 can be held in a showroom in Los Angeles.
The new generation Mazda3 model can debut in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the AutoExpress edition reports. Appearance of the novelty will be made on the motives of the concept Kai, presented last year at the motor show in Tokyo. The fourth-generation hatchback will add significantly in quality and efficiency, the report says.
Recall that the current Mazda3 is on the market since 2014. Sales of the model in recent years began to fall. If in the European market this is not so noticeable: in 2015, 49 766 units, in 2016 – 45 889 units and in 2017 – 43 794 cars, in the USA the volumes decrease more rapidly: 107 885, 95 567 and 75 018 cars, respectively.
Probably, the manufacturer plans to revive sales in this way, including due to the spectacular exterior of the Kai concept, slightly adapted for the production model. The next Mazda3 will be the first model of the brand, built on the basis of the new platform SkyActiv Vehicle Architecture, and will also receive a new SkyActiv-X engine, the return of which will be about 187 hp and 230 Nm of torque, the scale will also include the familiar SkyActiv-G and SkyActiv-D.
Sales of Mazda3 of new generation, probably, will begin already in 2019.
