  1. Official drawings of the 2019 Mazda3 – keep in mind that at this time, we don’t know if it will be sold as a 2019MY or 2020MY in the U.S.A. and Canada. The new “3” will employ Mazda’s latest Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture. The platform is said to be stronger while providing a much better ride quality. But the big news for the fourth-generation “3” is the debut of Mazda’s new SkyActiv-X gasoline enginefeaturing Spark Controlled Compression Ignition. This innovative four-cylinder unit combines characteristics of diesel and regular gasoline engines, using spark plug ignition to “control compression ignition”. In short, it ignites the fuel-air mixture similar to a diesel engine promising to combine the fuel efficiency of the former with all the benefits of a gasoline unit, without the emissions penalty. Mazda forecasts an output of around 190 horsepower with 170 lb-ft (230Nm) of peak torque from the 2.0-liter version. That puts it well above today’s 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G that delivers 155hp and 150 lb-ft (203Nm) and on par with the bigger 2.5-liter Skyactiv-G with 184hp and 185 lb-ft (250Nm). The difference here is that Mazda is targeting at least a 20 percent improvement in fuel economy and up to 25 percent less carbon dioxide emissions over the current Skyactive G engines. Mazda Kai Concept Wants To Get Our Hopes Up For New Mazda3
  2. Hi shifus. My sis just went to buy this fella. Any common problems to look out for?
  3. Anyone got stuck on PIE last evening for more than an hour and half? A few of us in the team did so, no thanks to someone who swerved out at the last minute, causing an accident that required a huge cleaning-up effort from the authorities. Thanks to SG Road Vigilante, we now know what caused the accident which happened at PIE's Steven Road exit in the direction of Jurong, at 630pm. While the accident itself didn't cause any serious injury, it is obvious that the Mazda 3 driver was at fault. According to the comments online, it does look like he or she was trying to avoid a frontal collision in his/her own lane by swerving into lane 2 but that unfortunately meant that the 2 motorcyclists that were lane-spliting, had to fall due to such a move. Kudos to both the tipper truck and the Malaysian van for being reactive to what was happening in front of them!
  4. Now this is one heartening sight! Our local police force is working hard to catch bad-behaving vehicles on our roads! Seen on SG Road Vigilante is this video of an unmarked Traffic Police vehicle zooming up fast on the AYE towards Tuas to catch a motorbike on 13th of December 2020. We can't really see why the bike was being stopped but according to the source, it is a Malaysian-registered bike with a mini rear number plate. While having such a number plate is an offence in our sunny island, we thought the police might also be catching the biker for a speeding offence or having a loud exhaust. As for the rest of us, we now know when you see a white Mazda 3, it might not be a Private Hire Vehicle but an Unmarked Traffic Police car!
  5. Hi all, I am considering between Mazda 3 2014 or impreza 4D, any bros can advise? Also which models have the most options for mod, I would like to change the exhaust, body kits, lightings etc... Thanks
  6. We have no idea what to make of this. Shot on the 3rd of October 2020 at the junction of East Coast Road and Siglap Road, an accident occoured between a blue Mazda3 and a couple of motorcyclists. As we can see from the video posted by SG Road Vigilante, the Mazda simply veered slowly out of his lane before crashing into a Deliveroo and McDonalds delivery rider who were waiting to do a right turn at the junction. We are ashamed to say with it happening all very leisurely, the whole incident did looked slightly funny. Our apologies! Could the driver have fallen asleep while driving slowly or was he just playing with his phone and not concentrating on where he was going?
  7. Also to share some information: Some of the new mazda 3 mild hybrid owners who recently collected since last december, regardless of trim/body(hatch or sedan), you might have realised that you have speed limit displayed on your active driving display (aka HUD). This feature is not officially available in singapore market. I have reached out to mazda for an official reply, unfortunately they could only explain that works are in progress to make that feature available.. Therefore, those who got the feature now could be erroneously activated by the technical team either from factory or from service centre, in my opinion as mazda refused to give a straight forward answer to this question.
  8. And just like that, another sgCarMart review is ready to sneak up on you! Seems like Julian is missing so James summons our producer himself to pair with him for the review! Of course, a round of hazing is necessary to initiate the fresh blood, and we do so courtesy of the boot of the Mazda3! Just kidding. The Mazda's 444 litre boot space is apparently good enough to fit two Jons. But as with any family hauler, space in the rear bench is just as important, and does the Mazda succeed? With flying colours apparently! Those that keep up with our reviews will be well aware that the new Mazda3 has made great strides in interior quality, and likewise, our producers seems fairly impressed with the build quality up at the front. So after all is said and done, do they opt to buy the car? Watch the full video below to find out!
  9. Hoping to see a hot version of the new sleek-looking Mazda3? Unfortunately, Mazda has declared that it has no plans for such a vehicle. According to Cars Guide, Mazda's head of Global Development and Product Planning Hiroyuki Matsumoto was asked about whether a high-performance Mazda3 could be a possibility. “We are capable of creating engine to answer such demands for more power, but at the moment we have no plan to do it,” he replied. It is no surprise that the company has no interest in performance version of the 3 despite the car's Program Manager Kota Beppu, recently saying that he would love to see the return of the Mazda3 MPS. While this is just a guess from us, it does seems like Mazda would rather concentrate its efforts on pushing itself more upmarket than spending money on making hot hatches. Meanwhile, closer to our shores, the new Mazda3 will be launching officially soon and will be powered by a 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated engine that is paired to a mild hybrid system.

    Mazda3 SP

    Any comments on the new Mazda3 SP?Thanks
  11. Hi peeps. I’m looking for lips and skirts for Mazda 3. The very popular workshop will be JDM but find them pricy. Anybody got recommendations for cheaper alternatives? Found one at Empire bodykit. Anybody heard about them before? Thanks!
  12. The all-new Mazda3 makes its world premiere today at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. The fully redesigned model will be rolled out to global markets - beginning with North America - in early 2019. The all-new Mazda3 adopts a matured Kodo design language that embodies the essence of Japanese aesthetics. While the overall design presents a simple, single form, subtle undulations bring the styling to life through shifting light and reflections that glide over the body surface. The result is a richer and more powerful expression of vitality than that seen in previous Kodo models. Despite sharing the Mazda3 name, the hatchback and sedan models have distinct personalities — the design of the hatchback is dynamic, that of the sedan elegant. The all-new Mazda3 adopts Mazda’s new SKYACTIV-Vehicle Architecture, designed to enable people to make the most of their natural sense of balance. The powertrain lineup comprises the latest SKYACTIV-X, SKYACTIV-G and SKYACTIV-D engines, each of which provides smooth, responsive throttle control in any driving situation. Based on its key philosophy of designing the car around the human being, Mazda has dramatically enhanced the car’s fundamental driving attributes such that accelerating, turning and braking all feel completely natural. Having sold over 6 million units1 since its 2003 debut, the Mazda3 is a global strategic model that has driven the company’s growth from both a brand and business perspective. It has delivered Mazda’s renowned driving pleasure to customers all over the world and been a mainstay of global production at key plants. “The all-new Mazda3 we unveil today begins a new era for Mazda,” said Akira Marumoto, Mazda’s Representative Director, President and CEO. “The next generation of Mazda cars will enhance the value of the car-ownership experience. Though these products, we will further raise Mazda’s brand value and work towards our goal of building ever stronger bonds with customers all over the world.”

  14. Although Jetta GearBox's negative impression, but its sales figure don't lose "sell like hot cakes" Mazda 3 and Altis
  15. Hi guys, Am looking around used Mazda 3 and here are my observation on the 2nd gen, which I appreciate if current/ex owners can clarify 1) 2013 year have this "SP" and lower OMV/ARF of 16k, while 2012 year and earlier is around 20k. What caused the significant drop? 2) For the models 2012 and earlier, there is two trim level - "Normal" and "Luxury". I cant find any information online on the trim level difference, what is the extra specification found on Luxury? 3) Does either trim come with ESP?
  16. Saw this car near Aeon Tebrau with the driver door damaged and parked on the kerb in odd position. Seen on 13Aug16 morning. Just trying my luck to see if the owner has lost the car or something else.
  17. mazda 3 so expensive. honda civic also expensive. yet we see so many people willing to pay a premium for H cars, but not M cars. is the appeal of vtec so strong?
  18. Helping a friend find witness for her accident. The following is her account. Anyone who witness the accident can please drop me a PM. Or alternatively, can help make a statement at any police station. Thanks. Accident on 9 April 2016, around 3.15pm, at a relatively busy cross junction between Commonwealth Ave West and North Buona Vista Road. My vehicle SGV 1821S was turning right on green traffic arrow towards North Buona Vista road and a vehicle number SJB92E just dashed straight and we collided at 90 degree. I was bleeding but I managed to hop out of car to the pedestrian side traffic lights. The other party (uncle in striped red and blue t-shirt in 1 of the left hand side of my pictures) only cared about snapping pictures of the accident. I hopped out and the uncle upon seeing me, shouted at me saying why I never slow down n give way to him. He claimed his lights was green. I told him that his lights couldn't be green as my green right turn traffic light was on and not even blinking. After which, he ignored me and continued snapping pictures despite I was bleeding and limping. His wife just sat inside the car fiddling with her phone and showed a black face. He didn't even try to call police. I struggled and call police on my own n asked for ambulance. The other party wanted to claim all against me and insisted all fault on me. I was sole driver with no car camera. The other party was with his wife and their car had no car camera too.There is a LTA camera at the cross junction but Traffic Police said they are not sure if the footage is working. I suffered 1 cm cut and 3 stitches on chin, swollen left arm with bruises and abrasions, 3 molar teeth chipped, and 4 broken toes on right foot. The other party and wife were totally unharmed. I am appealing to kind souls who had witnessed the accident. Thank you very much.
  19. New Mazda 3 selling at $118,988 & $121,988 by eurokars group.. Will anyone willing to pay this amount??
  20. Hi, Am thinking of upsizing my new Mazda3 from 16" to 19", as i absolutely love the looks. Specific question is, if i am not a heavy foot and speedy driver, how big is the impact on take off, acceleration, and fuel consumption? Is the car going to be horribly sluggish? I am aware of the harder, noisier and bumpier ride. I just love the look. And there's an original Mazda 19" available at a shop. Original is 205/60-R16 , 16"x6.5 , offset 50. The change will be to 19"x7.0 , offset 50 and available tyre options at the shop are 235/35-R19 (-0.8%) or 225/40-R19 (+1.5%). Please advise. Many thanks.
  21. On the way home saw 3 highway patrol Volvos stopping 1 car (look like Mazda 3). So serious offence meh? Need 3 Volvos to attend to 1 car?
  22. This old couple had a near brush with death. http://www.odt.co.nz/regions/central-otago/327080/couple-close-death-after-night-stuck-keyless-car Here's a pic of their Mz3 handle. Has a manual unlock button. Gramps got flustered and couldn't find it. Lucky for them it all worked out and we can have a laugh about it.
  23. This is probably one of the more important head to head comparisons for this year as two of our mid-size sedan favourites come together for another round of battle. With sedans being Singaporeans' favourite body style, we decide which is the better car to own. With only 3bhp separating both of them, you would expect both to have similar performance. This was not the case as the Altis felt slightly livelier and has a better appetite for revs. However, the Mazda3 has a smoother powerplant and when paired with the responsive six-speed automatic, it still offers decent pace for most. While CVT gearboxes are known to 'slip' when asked to accelerate hard, the Altis's new Super CVT-i gearbox minimises the effect with good results. When it comes to the twisties, the Mazda3 is the clear victor with a nicely judged ride and a direct steering. The Altis fights back with better insulation when it comes to cruising at highway speeds. While not as agile as the Mazda3, the Altis is in a totally different league as compared to its predecessor, which had too cushy a ride. Inside, the Mazda3 scores again with its better fit and finish. Its impressive equipment, like for example, the Active Driving Display, the MZD Connect touchscreen system and its Commander Control knob elevates it into a higher class. However, the Altis still triumphs in terms of overall space. So which one is the better car? Read our full review to find out.
  24. Mazda will recall 88,000 vehicles which are fitted with the marque's proprietary i-ELOOP energy recovery system. A spokesperson for Mazda USA has confirmed that up to 88,000 cars will be involved in this recall, citing the "control program that is designed to protect the capacity is reacting hyper sensitively when the alternator belt gets wet and slippage occurs". This will affect the car's acceleration, and in more severe cases the glitch will cause the engine to stall. However, the company has assured that no accidents or injuries has been caused by the fault. It is unsure if the models imported into Singapore are affected by this round of recall.
