The 2015 Mazda 3 is planned to be produced in Mexico. Its beginning is expected to happen sometime at the end of this year, or at the start of the upcoming year. The look of this new-generation Japanese is set up for September 2014.
Exactly what the upcoming 3 usages as a platform is up for some conversation. It was believed that Mazda’s brand-new small access would certainly make usage of the CX-5’s light-weight architecture, but there’s conjecture that the new automobile could make use of a heavily overhauled version of the existing 3’s maturing C1 platform. Based partially on Mazda’s cost-based decision to utilize a massaged version of a previous system instead of a completely brand-new one in the recent redesign of the 2014 Mazda 6, the theory makes good sense economically; the inquiry is whether or not Mazda can obtain its goals in terms of weight savings and body rigidity with the C1.
Design and style
The 2015 Mazda 3 will appear with some small drinks both in its building and its design. It is still unsure which system will be made use of for this future sleek car. It will be created either on the C1 or CX5 architecture. Just what’s more, its dimensions will certainly be altered a little. The comprehensive length will certainly be 1.8″ lower whereas its wheelbase will decrease by 2.4″.
Also, the overall weight will certainly be diminished by a couple of hundred pounds. Mentioning the changes seen from the outside, the 2015 Mazda 3 will certainly obtain a changed grille in the shape of pentagon and entirely brand-new fog lights.
The back of the auto will be a little swept up in order to offer an impression of a bigger car. Generally, this little Japanese will certainly acquire an extremely similar aim to its bigger bro, Mazda 6. When it comes to the interior, the cabin will be geared up with a simple, however really sophisticated dashboard with multi-functional touchscreen.
The 155-hp, normally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder Skyactiv-G engine presently was added to the 3 schedule late in the current automobile’s life, and it will carry over. However, the 167-hp, 2.5-liter four-banger most likely is too fatigued and as well thirsty to advance, also in a volume capacity– don’t expect to see it in the brand-new 3 It’s possible that Mazda can add its new 184-hp, 2.5-liter, which sees task in the CX-5 and the 6, to the 3 lineup, also.
Dropping the brand name’s 2.2-liter turbo-diesel into the engine bay would make an oil-burning 3 one of the more-exciting choices in the compact segment, and we hear it’s under consideration, yet we’re not holding out breath for such a thing.
It would be unthinkable for the zoom-zoom brand name to draw its manual alternative, so six-speed transmissions of both automated and manual ranges are likely to proceed. Word on the next-generation Mazdaspeed 3 is quiet presently, yet with an increasing marketplace, we ‘d expect one to be in the plans.
Price of 2015 Mazda 3
The 2015 Mazda 3 will possibly have similar price to its predecessor which begins from $17,495 for the base variation. As for the competition, we have to point out Ford Focus, Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, etc.
