Speculation about the new 2016 Mazda 3 has it that the new Mazda is going to get a whole new body construction with new sheet metal panels. Though the changes that we expect are going to very minimal while some parts are not going to be updated at all.
The new model will most probably come with different colour schemes which is going to please many buyers who are colour savvy. Other rumours suggest that the new 2016 Mazda 3 is going to come with larger wheels and a few other racy changes made on the exterior styling design.

The new 2016 Mazda 3 will most definitely come with some few changes but the overall layout and interior design will most certainly remain unaltered. The compact car will come with a clean elegant and stylish design inside the cabin.

There are a few revisions that are going to be effected in the new 2016 Mazda 3 in comparison to the previous version. The new car is going to receive new turbocharged engines. Instead of the standard ones, we will be getting smaller available turbo unit but which are going to be agile and sporty.
The new 2016 Mazda 3 will come with a SKYACTIV turbocharged 2.5L capacity engine which will be able to generate 295 hp and will have an all-wheel drive system. This will be the first time that the car is going to use an AWD system.
Additionally, the car will have a better fuel economy and will be paired with a six- speed automatic transmission system. A six-speed manual transmission cannot also be ruled out as yet.
The 2016 Mazdaspeed3 or the 2016 Mazda MPS (Mazda Performance Series) sporty fun-to-drive compact sedan is set to land on the American soil soon. The car has bagged three Wards 10 Best Engines and three Car and Driver 10 Best awards for its turbocharged 2.3L 4-cylinder engine which the previous version took delight in using.
Differing over the previous report that claimed that the model will go on a high performance diesel engine, the report now states that the new turbocharged and new direct injection engine will have a displacement of 2.5L.
In simple terms the update now claims that another engine option will be a 2.5L SkyActiv G petrol engine that will be under the hood of the new Mazda 3. The engine will be able to generate as much as 320 hp. This power will evenly be distributed to the four wheels through the AWD drive system.
The fuel economy ratings of the 2016 Mazda 3 have not been made available, but we expect them to be released soon. The current 2015 Mazda 2 has excellent gas mileage and we should expect the same for the 2016 year model.
