In mid-October 2018, the automaker released a 15-second teaser video showing us elements of the fourth-generation Mazda3.

As we thought, the Mazda3 will take styling cues from the Kai concept and embody the Kodo design language.

Judging by the teaser image released with the announcement it's safe to say that both the sedan and hatchback versions of the model will be shown.

The automaker confirms that the next Mazda3 will sit on the Skyactiv Vehicle Architecture, which should improve driving dynamics.

Mazda did not strictly confirm the new auto will have the compression-ignition gasoline engine it's been working on, but did say it would feature next-generation SkyActiv Vehicle Architecture, which improves sound deadening to reduce noise and vibration while adding more rigidity and space in the cabin.

Unlike a regular gasoline engine, in which the fuel-air mixture is ignited by a spark, Skyactiv-X will employ an approached used by diesel engines, which compress the fuel until it becomes so hot it ignites. Currently, the Mazda3 comes with two engines: a 2.0-liter inline-four with 155 hp and 150 lb-ft of torque, or a 2.5-liter inline-four with 184 hp and 185 lb-ft.
