Build Your Own 2019 Mazda3 With The Official (German) Configurator

Mazda Germany is probably the first branch of the Japanese manufacturer to launch an online configurator for the new 3, giving us the chance to play a bit with the few, to be honest, options.

The new Mazda3 is the fourth generation of the Japanese Golf rival, featuring a sharp design that was previewed by the Kai concept. Some people might be put off by the size of the third pillar in the hatchback, but overall, the 2019 Mazda3 is one of the cleanest designs in the market.

For now, the German configurator gives you the option to choose between two powertrains: the petrol 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G M Hybrid with 120hp (122PS) and CO2 emissions from 117g/km and the diesel 1.8-liter Skyactiv-D with 114hp (116PS) and CO2 emissions from 107g/km.

Both of these engines are offered with a six-speed manual transmission as standard and an automatic transmission being optional.

The range is also going to receive a base model with a 1.5-liter Skyactiv-G petrol unit and of course the headline-stealing 2.0-liter Skyactiv-X petrol that claims to offer diesel-like efficiency in real-world driving conditions.

According to the German site, the Euro-spec Mazda3 will come with full LED headlights, adaptive cruise control and an 8.8-inch infotainment system as standard among other. Heated front seats and steering wheel, as well as a keyless entry system, leather upholstery and a high-end Bose audio system are part of the options list.

Mazda will also offer the Design Package option, which adds tinted rear windows, a set of gray 18-inch alloys, Matrix LED lights, and chrome detailing in the cabin, among other features.

Prices of the new Mazda3 in Germany start from 22,990 euros ($25,900 in current exchange rates) for the 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G model and from 25,290 euros ($28,500) for the 1.8-liter Skyactiv-D model.

H/T to Evan!

      I can’t see your point, how do you mean?

        go look at a A3 to A7 Audi, how simple is that?

          Audi’s centre display is integrated in the dashboard, maybe in case of quality it is similar to the new Mazda3, but it’s a totally different design.

    I’ve been mildly critical in the past, but I’m done being kind … This new Mazda3 hatch is downright homely. I’ve given it time, but it hasn’t grown on me at all. Just the opposite in fact. If Mazda continues down this path with their crossovers, they’re going to lose all the ground they worked so hard to gain.

      You don’t have any sense of estatics!

        You mean aesthetics?

        • Giziclown

          Your are great at spelling, but still fon’t have any esthetics.

    Mazda is dead to me until they change their minds on the whole Mazdaspeed thing. I would’ve bought a new Mazdaspeed 3 in a heartbeat but now my next car most likely will be a VW or Hyundai.

    Masterpiece…

    Mazda is unic brand, it always makes smaller model more beautiful than big ones. Case in point are 3 and cx-3 models. Brilliant!

  • Victor K

    Mazda Canada already has the configurator too by the way! Including leading and financing options available.

    The 3 and the CX3 are very well done cars. I have been considering the CX3 for a while a daily driver in Taiwan.
