2019 Mazda 3 Colors and Interiors Recap

2019 Mazda 3 Colors and Interiors Recap

2019 Mazda3 Colors and Interiors Recap

The 2019 Mazda3 hatchback and sedan have been catching the eyes of many. These vehicles are able to offer you an incredible design and a near-luxury car experience with an entirely affordable price tag. The popularity of the 2019 Mazda3 has been immense. Learn more about why this vehicle has been popular and how you can find the perfect Mazda3 design for you below.

Mazda3 Style Philosophy

When artisans and craftsman were designing the 2019 Mazda3, they had a few different philosophies in mind. The first is the KODO: Soul of Motion philosophy. This philosophy of design tries to embody motion at a standstill because motion is beauty and motion is life. The other design philosophy present in the Mazda3 is the Japanese philosophy of less is more. This encouraged designers to eliminate the unessential and highlight the beauty of the necessary.

Exterior Design and Color Options

In the 2019 Mazda3, you have an elegant and beautiful exterior. This exterior features beautiful contours and signature LED lighting. You have available LED headlights and daytime running lights as well as LED combination taillights to give you beautiful form and great function.

This exterior is available in six different color options. Check them out here:

  • Soul Red Crystal Metallic
  • Jet Black Mica
  • Deep Crystal Blue Mica
  • Snowflake White Pearl Mica
  • Sonic Silver Metallic
  • Machine Grey Metallic

These exterior color options offer you the chance to find a Mazda3 that fits perfectly with your style and personality. The Soul Red Crystal Metallic and the Snowflake White Pearl Mica are bolder and brighter colors that can help you make a statement and an entrance. However, you can also go with a more subtle gray or black color.

Interior Colors and Materials

The interior of the Mazda3 was also designed to convey beauty and functionality. When considering the placement of controls, shifters, and more, the designers of the Mazda3 thought about the human body and how it moves, so the interior could be designed just for you.

For the interior trim colors and materials, you have five options:

  • Black Cloth
  • Greige Leatherette
  • Black Leatherette
  • White Leather
  • Black Leather

The “greige” leatherette option is a new one for 2019. Greige describes a combination of grey and beige to give you warmth and sophistication simultaneously. This greige leatherette interior could be a great option with a bolder exterior color option like the Soul Red Crystal Metallic. There are many different options for exterior and interior color combinations, so you have to choose the one that speaks to you.

It can be tough to pick the perfect colors and features for your Mazda3, but, with Seacoast Mazda, you don’t have to do it alone. We have an expert staff that will be able to advise you on the perfect Mazda3 model for you. You can come to us with questions or opinions, and we will help you with your decision and stay true to your vision.
