2019 Mazda 3 launched in Malaysia – hatchback and sedan; three variants; price from RM140k to RM160k

At long last, the all-new, fourth-generation Mazda 3 has finally made its launch debut in Malaysia, with three variants (1.5, 2.0 High and 2.0 High Plus) and two body styles (sedan and hatchback) available. The C-segment model comes fully imported (CBU) from Japan, competes against nameplates like the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla Altis, Hyundai Elantra and Volkswagen Golf, just to name a few.

At first glance, the visual differences between the two body styles are easily apparent, as the sedan gets a pin-style grille with chrome surrounds, while the hatchback adopts a honeycomb-like design with black trim instead. In profile, the sculpted sides play with light and shadow to create reflections that are unique to each model, with another cue being the prominent C-pillar and shorter rump on the hatchback as compared to the sedan.

While the exterior of both body styles are distinctive in their own right, the interior is identical, with a cabin that cuts down on “visual noise,” and has a driver-centric approach that also sees improvements to practicality. The infotainment display is much larger this time around, and it is powered by the latest version of the Mazda Connect system, although it does lose touch functionality to reduce cognitive distraction.

Below it, the air vents and climate system switchgear are positioned on a horizontal plane that leads into a restyled instrument binnacle that contains a digital instrument cluster display alongside analogue dials. There’s a new steering wheel design here, and the driver also gets two dedicated air vents.

Also revamped is the centre console, where the two cupholders are brought further forward aft to a small cubby space. The centre armrest is also much larger this time around, and features a “karakuri” opening mechanism to reveal additional storage. Even the Commander Control switchgear is new, and is designed to be more intuitive to operate.

For our market, we get two naturally-aspirated four-cylinder petrol engines from Mazda’s SkyActiv-G range, with the first being a 1.5 litre unit that makes 118 hp at 6,000 rpm and 153 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. The other option is a 2.0 litre powerplant serving up 162 hp at 6,000 rpm and 213 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. Regardless of which mill you pick, both are paired with a SkyActiv-Drive six-speed automatic transmission, with drive going to the front wheels.

The base variant, which is offered as a sedan and hatchback, is priced at RM139,620 on-the-road without insurance, and comes with the 1.5 litre engine. In terms of equipment, you get automatic LED projector headlamps with bulb-type daytime running lights, LED taillights and 16-inch alloy wheels on the outside.

As for the interior, there’s single-zone manual air-conditioning, a seven-inch TFT-LCD digital instrument cluster display, an 8.8-inch central display linked to a Mazda Connect infotainment system with eight speakers, fabric upholstery, windscreen-projected head-up display, a soft-touch dash and door cards, plus manually operated front seats.

Further up the range is the 2.0 High variant that retails at RM150,059, but is available only in sedan form. Paying the premium over the base model nets you the larger-capacity 2.0 litre motor, along with more goodies in the kit list. Improvements over the base model include the addition of keyless entry, leather upholstery, a sunroof, frameless rearview mirror, 10-way powered driver seat with two-setting memory function, and dual-zone climate control with rear air vents.

At the very top is the 2.0 High Plus, which can be ordered in both body styles, and goes for RM160,059. This variant gets all the items found on the 2.0 High, with upgrades being larger 18-inch wheels in place of the 16-inch units, as well as adaptive LED headlamp.

You’ll also get four front parking sensors, along with a full complement of Mazda i-Activsense safety and driver assistance systems. These include Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS), High Beam Control (HBC), Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS), Lane Keep Assist System (LAS), Driver Attention Alert (DAA), Smart Brake Support (SBS – front and rear) and Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC), the last item being the first time Bermaz has offered the driver assistance feature on a Mazda model.

Speaking of safety, all variants come as standard with traction control, an anti-lock braking system (ABS), electronic brake-force distribution (EBA), emergency brake assist (EBA), hill launch assist (HLA), G-Vectoring Control Plus, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and seven airbags (front, side, curtain and a new addition being for the driver’s knee).

2019 Mazda 3 launched in Malaysia – hatchback and sedan; three variants; price from RM140k to RM160k

In terms of colour options, the get seven colours to choose from – Soul Red Crystal, Machine Grey, Snowflake White Pearl, Deep Crystal Blue, Sonic Silver, Jet Black and Polymetal Grey, although it should be noted that the last option is only offered for the hatchback.

Also included with each purchase is a five-year/100,000 km warranty, five-year/100,000 free maintenance package, as well as SkyTint security window tint.

      Mazda has become very arrogant in Malaysia. RM160k for a small C class sedan is just plain wrong. How many of us can afford such high car prices?

      According to EPF’s own official statistics, 78.3% of its total contributors earn RM1500 and below.

      This means, 78.3% of the total working workforce in Malaysia earn from RM0 to RM1500.

      With this in mind, who in Malaysia can really afford our high car prices?

      Everybody in the car industry confirmed car prices going higher because Government cannot sustain the exemptions and tax subsidies given MAINLY to SPANCO and Proton.

Mazda design, quality may be good but their pricing strategy to their new Mazda 3 is utter nonsense. Mazda 3 will be a massive failure in Malaysia for sure while C segment king Civic and the much reliable Corolla Altis are gonna continue to conquer the C segment. If new Nissan Sylphy launched in Malaysia, Sylphy will join the Civic and Corolla line cause the new Sylphy looks fantastic. If Mazda wants to sell their Mazda 3, they should reduce their price!

      Yes, the Mazda 3 price increase globally. It seems Mazda gonna position themselves higher level than H, T and N (not comparing with Acura, Lexus or Inifiniti). Be honest the Mazda 3 price shock many and even though it is a good car (unfortunately not skyactiv-x engine) but I doubt the sales will go well even after it become CKD. Even if it slash 20k people may not go for it as Civic 1.5T high spec still cheaper and more powerful plus better maintenance package.

      if you consider what goes into a premium make like a BMW, Merc, Audi, Lexus…this is far from it. the Mazda is a good build indeed, but not premium by a long shot.

      when you breakdown the details in a premium make you’ll find there’s a lot more that goes into the construction of the vehicle. whether it’s conveniences or comfort…down to making every button silent and not make unnecessary clicks and rackety sounds..and making signal stalks that don’t make the clacking sound as you turn your wheel and then snap back into place as you counter steer.

      tear down behind the surface in a premium make and you’ll find uncanny amounts of sound deadening in the most unlikely parts of the vehicle…but not in a Mazda.

      again i reiterate…Mazda makes good quality cars. but it’s not premium by a mile.

        While that is true, not all Mercedes are equal too. A base A Class doesn’t have the luxury of a C Class. It has more hard plastics. But the C Class has few hard plastics. In that context, a Mazda 3 isn’t that far off an A Class. When you consider that context, the Mazda 3 looks like a bargain. .comparison to a Civic is a bit difficult cos the Honda is CKD. If both Mazda and Civic are CKD, then the price difference may not be so extreme.

      Those who say not worth is not Mazda’s target segment for this model, because they are not competing for mass market. This move is a move to a nicher market than they already have. If you ask me worth or not? I think value for money wise the answer is a clear no. But if you prefer the premium interior and willing to pay the price, then I don’t see why not.

    About year ago, I bought a reconditioned W204 C250 coupe for RM129k – it had 15,000km on the clock and based on pre-purchase inspection, only things wrong with it were tires, wheel speed sensor, engine and gearbox mounting – all of which the dealer sorted before delivery (except for the tires). Car comes with 204bhp and 310nm of torque. I can’t help but feel that RM140k for a base spec Mazda 3 is unjustifiable, especially from a performance standpoint.

      Well, there you go. At 15,000 km and you already need to change the wheel speed sensor, engine and gearbox mounting. Mountings that were supposed to last a few years, you had to change it at 15,000km. At 30,000km what will you be changing? 45k? 50k? Savings you had when buying a used german car will be used for the maintenance bill.

      This is the strategy of Bermaz management team. In fact, Bermaz share price is on uptrend.
      Base on data, sedan/hatchback car is less popular nowadays. SUV is the choice of peoples now.
      With limited production capacity in their plant, they have to sacrified the CKD of mazda3 to build more SUV for higher return.

      Although i personally feel sad of mazda3 not able to CKD. Just blame CX-5 for being too popular.

    I wonder how’s the performance of the 1.5L engine pulling the 1,400kg car with just 118hp. From the start, its clearly going to be an underpowered car. Better to go for the 2L model, but the price for the CBU spec is literally over the top for this segment. At that price range, various other better choices around…

    2019 Mazda 3 worth the price?

    Comparing 2019 Mazda 3 2.0 High (CBU) and 2014 Mazda 3 2.0 High (CBU)

    Price: 2019 RM147K vs 2014 RM135K (Different: RM12K)
    Engine & Transmission: No change. Manufacture Cost should be same or reduce. [Note: Same engine production for longer time should have cost reduced.]
    Fuel Consumption: Same engine slight tuning. Manufacture Cost should be same or slight increase.
    Car Body & Structure: New and improved. Manufacture Cost increase.
    Suspension: Multi-link to Torsion Beam. Manufacture Cost decrease.
    Interior: Better material. Manufacture Cost increase.
    Handling & Ride: Remain. Manufacture Cost refer to Suspension – decrease.
    NVH: Improve. Manufacture Cost increase.
    Space: No different. Manufacture Cost refer to Car Body & Structure & Suspension – Same. [Note: Offset each other]
    Safety Spec (Passive or Active): Passive Remain. ALL Active Safety Spec being REMOVED!!! Manufacture Cost decrease.
    Standard Features & Accessories Spec: Add rear air-con vents. Rim & Tyre reduce from 18″ to 16″. Manufacture Cost should be decrease.
    Useless Spec: Sunroof. If remove Sunroof, Manufacture Cost CAN decrease.

    Overall, 2019 Mazda 3 is improved compares to 2014 Mazda 3 in terms of material quality with price increase.
    However, ALL Active Safety Spec REMOVED!!! Some spec being REDUCED!!!
    Yes. 2019 Mazda 3 improved in quality BUT the rest of the car competitors are improved as well. Did other car competitors increased price?

    Base on above comparison, price increase RM12K, quality improved, Spec reduced and removed.
    Does 2019 Mazda 3 worth the price?
    2019 Mazda 3 is attractive or not?
    Does Bermaz Mazda Malaysia treat buyers sincerely?

    just noticed something, parking sensors are only available with the high plus version…the 1.5 and high versions do not have sensors

    • The base models have only rear parking sensors. The high versions add on front parking sensors.

    Looks like there’s alot of haters towards this model because of the pricing. How about someone launch a petition so you can afford it? Or else, stick to average public choice: Civic or Corolla. Done.
