Mazda doesn't sell as many Mazda3s as Honda does Civics or Toyota does Corollas, but it's not for lack of trying. Chalk up the new '19 Mazda3 as another winner and deserving of the hundreds of thousands of sales those models tally. The 3 compact hatch and sedan, on sale now in the U.S., as always are fun-to-drive and beautiful to look at inside and out. But Mazda has spent some time to improve its human-machine interfaces, albeit with mixed results (more on that later), plus added optional all-wheel drive. ... All compacts have pluses and minuses, but the 3 should please those wanting a driver's car and who appreciate higher-quality interior materials. With the domestic brands exiting the C-car segment in the U.S., Mazda is bound to pick up some share.

The new Mazda3 is good, especially in all-wheel drive guise. As compact sedans and hatchbacks go, Mazda has built a good one. The small Japanese company has all of the parts in its bins to build a seriously powerful and performance oriented model. Not only do I think it make an AWD turbocharged adult hot hatch, but the company already has the idea on its radar, according to a report by Autocar. The stuff is all there in the factory just waiting to be assembled. It's time for the return of Mazdaspeed. ... The U.S. demand has been corroborated by Car and Driver which says "Mazda sources have told us that they are listening closely for enthusiasts to ask for the car. If the crowd roars loud enough, there's a very strong possibility that a new Mazdaspeed 3 will appear relatively soon. Here's your chance. Let Mazda hear from you." The poll at the bottom of that report is currently sitting at 99% in favor of Mazda building a hot 3.

Multiple sources report that a secret project within Mazda has foreshadowed a reboot of the Mazdaspeed3 hot hatchback. You're probably aware that Mazda's official attitude on new Mazdaspeed (or "MPS" in some markets) models is a big fat no, but according to both Autocar and Car and Driver, insiders say that a new Mazda3-based hot hatch has been developed in the dark. The former reports that a "proof-of-concept" prototype has been constructed at Mazda's research and development facility in Los Angeles, California, without approval from corporate in Hiroshima, Japan. Both allege that the sporting Mazda3 is on the cusp of approval, with the former citing an interview wherein the model's program manager has expressed his support for making the Mazdaspeed3 anew.

Mazda's Mazdaspeed 3 Hot Hatch Might Come Back-If You Ask Loudly Enough

It has been several years since Mazda offered high-performance Mazdaspeed versions of its 3 compact or its MX-5 Miata sports car. Although the lovable little two-seater does come in a racy Club version with sticky tires and big brakes and the company does pursue the upper levels of professional sports-car racing, it has been moving its passenger vehicles upmarket. Today's Mazda cars and SUVs still have a sporty, engaging feel, but they're also much more luxurious and refined than ever before, with Audi-esque interiors and more sophisticated styling. We miss the raw performance of those Mazdaspeed models. According to a story on Autocar's website, that may be changing. Mazda program manager Kota Beppu told Autocar that the company is close to greenlighting a serious high-performance version of the 3 to compete directly with Volkswagen's GTI. Sources inside Mazda have confirmed the same to us.

The redesigned 2019 Signature takes a big leap with a redesigned, upscale interior, new trim, the upgraded turbocharged SKYACTIV-2.5T engine, and a revised chassis that features the latest technology with G-Vectoring Control Plus (GVC Plus). The CX-5 Signature is sophisticated, yet simple in its elegance. There are new premium features included.

Ambient LED lighting and a frameless rearview mirror all add to the exceptional interior cabin experience. ... The 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature AWD is a smartly engineered SUV. It has all the comforts and technologies a family could want in an upscale interior environment. I think this is a great car for both getting around town and taking us on longer road trips. It has room for 5 plus gear.

The $34,750 2019 Mazda 6 Signature Reminded Me How Good Sedans Can Be

"Hey! Pretty car!" a random dude shouted to me as he jogged past. I was taking a dramatic picture of the 2019 Mazda 6 Signature on a rainy afternoon in Detroit and didn't need his obvious observations. "Very pretty car" he followed up. It's not just a pretty car, it's a surprisingly classy one. The new Mazda 6 is certainly eye catching, and the Signature trim makes it the cushiest Mazda sedan ever. ... The Signature trim is absolutely gorgeous, and almost lets you forget it is a Mazda. ... I don't mean that in a bad way, of course. It's an accessible sort of luxury with plush leather seats and enough legroom to take on hours of road tripping with ease. ... It's gorgeous enough to be noticeable, fun enough to be drivable, and low-key enough for the average driver to feel like they're getting away with a great car at a great price.
