What’s New for Mazda in 2020?

A willingness to change and improve is essential for any automaker that wants to stay afloat on the mainstream auto market. Standards for new cars are constantly changing at an increasingly rapid rate as technology continues its exponential advancement, bringing with it a variety of previously unheard of innovations for new cars. So what will be in store from Mazda in 2020?

From an abundance of advanced safety and driver-assist features to state-of-the-art infotainment systems, customer expectations for features that should come standard in new cars continue to increase. This leaves automakers with no choice but to strive to meet and exceed these ever-changing expectations with the cars they produce in order to stay relevant on the mainstream auto market. 

Every year, major multinational automaker brands release updated vehicle models in time for the following model year. Cars for the upcoming model year are usually announced within the first quarter of the previous year and are released sometime in the fall of that year, although some models for the upcoming model year are released as early as spring of the previous year. That means that many cars for the 2021 model year have already been announced and are projected to be released within the next few months. 

Some of these vehicles undergo major redesigns and updates, while others are subjected to more minor changes or superficial facelifts. Some models are not updated at all between any two given model years. Until these cars are announced and ultimately released, it’s anyone’s guess what updates and innovations any given automaker brand may have up their sleeve for the cars in their lineup for the upcoming model year. 

Mazda is a Japanese multinational automaker that has been a major player among automakers on the mainstream auto market for more than a century. Mazda is known for producing a wide range of fun, fashionable, and functional vehicles—including passenger sedans, luxury sports cars, vans, trucks, SUVs, crossovers, hybrid and all-electric vehicles, etc. etc.—that are reliable, affordable, and enjoyable to drive. If you’re considering buying a Mazda vehicle this year or are already a loyal Mazda driver who wants to stay informed about important updates to Mazda models, read this guide to explore some of the most exciting new updates Mazda has announced for their 2020 vehicle lineup.

  1. Exciting Updates for the Mazda 3 

The Mazda 3 compact car has been a staple in Mazda’s vehicle lineup since its initial release in 2003.

One of the most notable features of the 2020 Mazda 3 is this revamped compact car’s exclusive Skyactiv-X engine. This Skyactiv-X engine is the newest exciting innovation from Mazda. It is a diesel-type petrol engine that uses charge compression ignition technology to combine a high level of power with impressive fuel efficiency that rivals some of the top hybrid cars on the modern auto market. 

The Mazda 3 offers updated advanced safety and driver-assistance tech for 2020 as well. The 2020 model of this beloved compact hatchback exceeds current industry expectations for high-tech safety with its comprehensive host of built-in and available safety and driver-assist features that have made the 2020 Mazda 3 an IIHS Top Safety Pick among sedans for 2020.
