Among the top automotive brands that lead the industry in many ways, Mazda is a name that always has newer ways of doing things. Things that will always pleasantly surprise you and give the other brands a new way of looking at manufacturing vehicles. Same things apply when Mazda introduces any of its model and its lineup. We all have heard too many times about the 2019 Mazda 3. But the way its lineup has been queued up will automatically draw your interest, and any car user who likes to enhance his knowledge on cars will simply like to explore the trims and packages that are associated with this flagship model of Mazda.
Our visit to the nearby Houston Mazda dealer became a memorable one, as the staff there took immense pleasure in showing us, how the lineup of 2019 Mazda 3 is structured. You will find nothing complicated, while the features will tempt you to explore more and more, until you decide to drive one home.
Trims and Packages
The 2019 lineup Mazda 3 consists of both sedans and hatchbacks. In a way they can be considered as completely different vehicles that share the same name and some common angles. Mazda has intently designed its Mazda 3 sedan as a fusion of sporty spirit in a formal cage, while the design style of the hatchback makes them move with a free-spirit, even though a thick rear pillar might appear to be disciplinary. You find no body creases to be traveling on the hatchback, while the sedan has some styling curves to make the sedan buyers feel entertained. The interior of both the sedan and hatchback styles are uniformly formal but warm and cozy with their premium quality.
The Sedans of the 2019 Mazda 3 come in trims named as Base, Select, Preferred, and Premium, each offering a unique “package” of equipment. The hatchbacks come only at the Select level. Mazda’s own infotainment system is offered across the entire lineup which is now made compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, to make your smartphone operations easier, while you stay attentive on the road.
Mazda has banished the Touchscreens as they rightly realized how they can distract the driver’s eye from the road even unintentionally. So they have replaced the dash with a high-contrast 8.8-inch screen that gets navigated through a Command Controller on its center console.
All the trims of the 2019 Mazda 3 are standardly powered by a 2.5-liter inline-4 engine that is mated with a 6-speed automatic transmission, but if you want a 6-speed manual, you need to climb up the ladder of the trims to the topmost level. Except the base, you get the all-wheel drive system that are best to get a better grip on the slippery road surfaces.
Attractive styling is typical of any Mazda sedan, and the 2019 Mazda 3 is no exception to this hard and fast rule. With its well-rounded performance, and comfort secured within its top-notch cabin that deserve to be explored by the onlookers, at any dealership like that of Houston Mazda.
