This is a completely new generation making its debut, so virtually everything is new, although the engine has been carried over. See the 2019 Mazda3 models for sale near you
We highly recommend the new Mazda3. Each potential buyer will decide on whether the sedan or hatchback is preferable and if all-wheel drive is necessary. If choosing the sedan, stretch to the driver-assistance features. Find a Mazda3 for sale

2019 Honda Civic -- Multitalented and offering a wide range of choices. One of the top players in the compact car category.
2019 Hyundai Elantra/GT -- High equipment levels for the price, comfortable, great warranty. Not so inspiring 2.0-liter engine. Updated for 2019.
2019 Subaru Impreza -- One of the few compact cars to have AWD and it's standard. Low-power engine and droning continuously variable transmission not a combination to relish.
2019 Toyota Corolla -- Reliable, well equipped, cheap to run. A new generation debuts for the 2020 model year.
2019 Volkswagen Golf -- Hatchback only, but spacious and refined. Another top contender.
