According to pretty much all reputable car magazines, the 2019 Mazda 3 comes with Kai Concept design. The new concept is having a premiere at the ongoing Tokyo Motor Show. There are many amazing things about it. First of all, this car continues the evolution of the company’s amazing Kodo design language. Unlike most of the mainstream manufacturers, Mazda doesn’t care about modern trends at all. You definitely won’t see those modern clichés on this concept.

This concept is here to preview the next generation of the excellent hatchback. The new model will most likely also be the first Mazda model to feature a new SkyActive X engine. This is something completely new not just for Mazda but for the complete car industry. This will be the first HCCI engine in mass production among manufacturers of mainstream cars. There are many benefits from the new technology. To cut the story, this advanced engine will come with a displacement of two liters. However, it will feature an output of 188 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque. This amount of power is in the range of the current 2.5-liter engine. Compared to the current SkyActive 2.0-liter engine, it is better for more than 30 horses. Despite the fact that features the similar amount of power as a 2.5-liter unit, it will feature at least 30% better fuel economy.
These are not only benefits from the new engine. The Japanese manufacturer has managed to reduce costs of the new engine. So, new 2019 Mazda 3 comes with Kai Concept design will not be much more expensive than current versions with 2.0- and 2.5-liter engines. The new model will still cost less than a version with a SkyActive diesel engine, according to our predictions.
