Mazda3 Will be on LA Auto Show on November 28
The new confirmed image of Mazda3 has recently been released by the Zoom-Zoom company after a 15-second-long brain wrecking teaser video that was published last month.
Motor1.com reported the world premiere is scheduled to happen by the end of the month in the Los Angeles Auto Show. The outlet revealed the event is set to open its doors to the media on November 28. While this happens immediately on the first press day, but people must not be too surprised if Mazda3 is revealed on the internet world a few days before.
Aside from this, the five-door hatchback Mazda will reveal its four-door sedan as well. At the moment, none of the details are concrete yet. However, what's confirmed is that the new 3 will adopt Kodo design language's more mature interpretation. This promising Kai concept is reportedly an accurate blueprint of what to expect from the most anticipated car.
In addition, the short press release published revealed the revamped compact Mazda models are set to adapt SkyActiv's next-generation engines. After all, the overhauled platform's goal is to "deliver new dimensions of driving pleasure to customers around the world."
Next-gen 3's most important asset was under the hood where people find a SkyActiv-X engine. The earlier mentioned source reportedly drove a Mazda3-bodied prototype during the start of the year. This happened with the new mill that took the shape of a supercharged inline-four which features an electrically controlled variable valve timing and cool exhaust-gas recirculation.
While the Mazda3 is coy on details, the promises on new gasoline engine are set to cut the fuel consumption by over 20 to 30 percent. In addition to this is boosting the torque by less or more than 20 percent to deliver the diesel-like levels.
The engineers of Mazda3 are adding special foam in the engine bay in the prototypes. This decision is allowed to silence the four-cylinder mill in the same vein. In the end, the premium European automakers are trying their best to make their diesel engines silenced.
The manager of Mazda named Dave Coleman from vehicle dynamics engineering admitted that the noise, harshness, and vibration. It seems things are going to be "very challenging" due to the higher-pressure fuel system and the new engine's explosive nature of compression ignition.
Coleman further mentioned the SkyActiv-X engine never had anything in common with 2.0-liter SkyActiv-G at the present. We are nothing but eager to know more about the next-generation Mazda3. Therefore, it is a relief that the long wait is going to be over soon.
