Which 3 does Edmunds recommend?

The base hatchback is very well-equipped, and it should meet the needs of most buyers. For our money, it's worth adding the midtier Preferred package. It doesn't cost much more, and you get additional luxuries such as heated front seats, satellite radio, and an absolutely kicking 12-speaker Bose audio system.

Edmunds' Expert Review

  • Premium interior materials in the upper trim levels provide a classy vibe
  • The seats are supremely comfortable and supportive
  • Spirited handling
  • Excellent audio quality from both available sound systems
  • Not much legroom in the back seat
  • New Skyactiv-X engine won't be available at launch
  • The Mazda 3 is fully redesigned for 2019
  • Part of the fourth Mazda 3 generation introduced for 2019

Overall rating

7.7 / 10

With crossovers becoming the de facto choice for many buyers, the humble compact needs to offer something a little extra to stay competitive. Luckily, the redesigned 2019 Mazda 3 delivers.

The Mazda 3's aptitude for sharp handling stretches back several generations and continues with the new model. Last year's optional 2.5-liter engine is now standard across the board, ensuring that every 3 has plenty of power, too. Mazda has also made all-wheel drive an available option this year. All-wheel drive gives the 3 enhanced grip on low-traction surfaces such as snow and will undoubtedly be a draw for shoppers living in cold-weather climates.

As long as you can accept the limited amount of rear-seat space, the Mazda 3's interior is sure to impress. The cabin is elegantly detailed with expensive-looking aluminum trim, solid-feeling switchgear and faux-leather door accents. Select the Premium package, and the Mazda 3's cabin will seem worthy of an Audi badge.

The Mazda 3 isn't perfect. As noted, the rear seat is quite tight, and the thick rear pillars reduce visibility and create blind spots. But in the big picture, there's nothing here that should seriously dissuade shoppers. For car shoppers looking for an upscale and fun-to-drive small hatchback, the 2019 Mazda 3 is a great pick.

2019 Mazda 3 models

The 2019 Mazda 3 is a small sedan or hatchback sold in a small number of trims, which Mazda now calls "packages." The base model sedan is very lightly equipped, but the Select package adds quite a bit of equipment at a reasonable cost. Base hatchbacks include the Select package. The Preferred package adds heated seats and a kicking sound system, while the top-level Premium package adds a sunroof and leather upholstery, among other upgrades. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available on all versions except the base sedan.

Every Mazda 3 is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine (186 horsepower, 186 lb-ft of torque) paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. A manual transmission is optional on the front-wheel-drive hatchback with the Premium package.

The base Mazda 3 sedan comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, LED exterior lighting (headlights, taillights and daytime running lights), a rearview camera, push-button start, a driver information screen, a 60/40-split folding rear seat, an 8.8-inch central display, Bluetooth, voice commands, and an eight-speaker audio system with HD radio and two USB ports.

Choosing the Select package adds 18-inch wheels, automatic headlights, automatic wipers, keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, vinyl door trim, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, simulated-leather upholstery, a rear armrest, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality. Additional safety features include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, a driver attention monitor, automatic high-beam control, and lane keeping assist.

The base hatchback is equipped with the contents of the sedan with the Select package, plus a rear roof spoiler and a cargo cover.

Add the Preferred package, and you'll get a power-adjustable driver's seat, driver-seat memory functions, heated front seats, and a 12-speaker Bose audio system with satellite radio.

The top-trim Premium package further adds adaptive headlights, a sunroof, a head-up display, leather upholstery, and paddle shifters for models with the automatic transmission. Hatchbacks also receive black-painted wheels.

Driving

8.0

Mazda vehicles tend to have pleasing driving dynamics, and though this new-generation 3 isn't as exciting as previous versions, it has solid fundamentals. Above-average horsepower and acceleration make quick work of merges and on-ramps, while proper feedback from the brake pedal adds to a sense of control during typical driving and confidence during panic stops.

The same is true for the steering and handling. Though not thrilling, both are pleasant during the daily grind. We generally like the automatic transmission too, but our test car occasionally made an undesirable clunk when leaving from a stop.

Comfort

7.5

The 3's interior is a generally pleasant place to occupy, with comfortable and supportive front seats that support all-day driving. The most prevalent sound is some engine noise during moderate and heavy acceleration, but it doesn't have an annoying drone. And irksome road noise is minimized.

Owing to its more driver-focused mission, the ride transmits most bumps and vibrations into the cabin, but the suspension controls these motions in a way that keeps passengers from complaining. When it comes to air conditioning, you can simply set it to auto and forget it.

Interior

7.5

The 3 is a masterclass of simplicity and intuitiveness. The controls are easy to use and find, helping keep your eyes on the road. We also like the driving position. Everything is in easy view, and almost all drivers should be able to find a setting that they prefer.

What brings the score down? Visibility and the rear seat. The rear window is small, and the rear side pillars create large blind spots. While proper mirror placement helps, backing out of a parking spot requires more awareness and concentration than it should. While we largely praise the front-seat experience, the back seat is tight. There's enough headroom, but legroom and shoulder room are below segment average. Plus, you have to duck when getting in or out.

Utility

7.0

At 20.1 cubic feet, the cargo area is a touch smaller than average. Though the storage area is deep, there's no way to lower the back seats from the cargo area. We like the center storage options for the front occupants, including a long and wide tray that accommodates most personal effects, and the small cubby to the left of the steering wheel. Rear passengers have few storage options, and the door pockets are average size throughout.

The easily accessible car seat anchors help when installing a car seat, though the somewhat smallish rear space means you'll likely have to move the front seat forward. Plus, the cargo privacy shield blocks the rear tethers — a minor annoyance.

Technology

7.5

Support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay comes standard, but both had few issues during testing. Controlling the interface with a rotary dial instead of a touchscreen takes some getting used to, but it works after practice. Onboard navigation is a functional stand-alone option for those who live in areas with poor cellphone reception.

A suite of active safety equipment, which includes adaptive cruise and collision mitigation, comes standard. But some systems can be overzealous in their warnings, and adaptive cruise has difficulty making smooth braking applications. Fortunately, you can adjust these systems individually.

Amazing Value and Style!
Mike,05/07/2019
Premium 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
I am throughly impressed with the 2019 Mazda 3 Premium Hatchback. It comes fully loaded with so many safety and tech features, and on top of that, it is extremely luxurious inside. This Mazda is much more luxurious than Mazda vehicles of previous generations. I have owned a BMW, Land Rover, Volvo, Lexus, and a Mercedes, and this vehicle is just as luxurious on the inside as any of those vehicles. It also drives both sporty and comfortably at the same time! This is hands down the best hatchback you can buy on the market right now. Update 7 months later: This car still performs great and remains an amazing value! It’s handling is very similar to that of a BMW. The red interior is eye-catching. There have been some open recalls, but Mazda has been good about repairing the issues. Overall, this is an amazing car with a beautiful interior and exterior. It’s worth taking a look at! Update after one year and 21k miles: Everything I stated previously remains true, except a few additional comments. There have been a few recalls, and there was a minor problem with one of the speakers, but the dealerships have been more than accommodating with fixing the issues. I would recommend waiting a model year or two to get this vehicle if you are worried about these recalls; they are simply the result of a new production model. The hatchback drives amazingly well still. I often forget that it’s a Mazda, because it’s so luxurious inside. I stand by my previous review that this vehicle has amazing value and style! There have been no engine, transmission, or powertrain issues (which are the types of problems I’m used to seeing even early on with luxury European counterparts).

The premium package offers a very involving option
Garth Libre,11/06/2019
Premium 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 4cyl 6M)
I simply must have a manual transmission in a sporty package, but I wasn't expecting such a perfectly balanced offering at this relatively reasonable price. The electric steering is reassuring and not vague. The power band seems to be everywhere from 1,500 rpm up to rev limit. The low profile tires are mated to a firm suspension that never beats you up but always seem sure footed. The interior is luxurious, the seats spectacular and the Bose stereo is awe inspiring. Sure the rear seat doesn't offer quite the same comfort, but if styling is important the hatchback is a real attention grabber. The gas mileage for us is 34.7 mpg for mixed driving and many hwy/local combined trips end up over 41 (up to 42) mpg when driven conservatively.

Awesome Car
SoCal New to Mazda,08/06/2019
Premium 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
I did extensive research on this and its competition, as I needed something that would be comfortable and fun to drive. I came from a BMW X1, which had a number of mechanical issues along with some electrical ones too. Once my lease expired, I did not hesitate to get this car after having test driven the competition. + The feature content is astounding and puts its competition and luxury makers to shame - love the HID display, active safety features (blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, etc.) + One-touch illuminated windows that actually go all the way down + Readable navigation (I bought the SD card) I'm actually not a huge fan of Apple Car Play - I think it is over-rated. Plus the SD navigation shows in the HID when driving + Comfortable interior with exceptional design and attention to detail - especially the seats and dash + Fun to zip through the canyons and traffic + Great visibility Wish List Ambient lighting with color choices 8 speed automatic (more gears) Economy mode in addition to sport mode Auto-stop when at a light More power.... without loss of efficiency

Where's the catch?
Yannick,11/20/2020
Premium 4dr Hatchback (2.5L 4cyl 6M)
It is hard to find a true bargain in life. Most of the times, things you thought would be bargains are in fact, slightly rubbish. Therefore, when something seems to be a bargain, there is usually a catch. The new Mazda 3 is a rare thing : it is a bargain. Well, there are a few things wrong with this car. Visibility is, at best, ''rather poor'', to put it gently. Cargo space is also a bit limited for the segment. And I am strugling to find more things wrong with this car. Anyway, the poor visibility is almost a non issue when you start looking at this car. It truly is amazing looking. It is not ''good looking for the segment'', it looks amazing in its own right. And the best thing is that the interior is just as good. It looks italian and feels like german built quality, which is kind of best of both worlds. Anyway, about the cargo space, if you are looking at that kind of car, you clearly are not shopping for a minivan, aren't you? What about reliability? I have a 2.0l manual GX hatchback, and nothing went wrong. It's also fairly simple mechanicaly, since it has a naturally aspirated carry over engine and should be rather reliable in the future as well. The suspension is effective but actually fairly simple, and there is a lot of working room in the engine bay. That means that owner maintenance is fairly accessible (looking at you, VW). Oh, and the manual transmission is sublime. The clutch is very well weighted and the shifts are precise and quick. What does set it appart is mainly the way it drives. It drives amazingly well. It manages to be comfortable and sporty at the same time. It is incredibly quiet at highway speeds for a car of this class as well. The seats are also very comfortable. So where is the catch? It drives even better than a german car, looks as good as an italian car, but here is the cherry on top of the cake : it was built by the Japanese. It's also practical and very well priced. That is the good thing about this car : there is no catch.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Mazda 3?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
