Mazda Motor Corporation announced that a new Mazda compact SUV will make its world debut at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show.

The second model in the company's new-generation line-up features a more mature KODO design language and Mazda's new-generation SKYACTIV-Vehicle Architecture.

The powertrain lineup showcases the latest SKYACTIV engines, including the company's the revolutionary SKYACTIV-X, which adopts a unique combustion method combining the free-revving performance of a petrol engine with the superior response of a diesel.

The Mazda MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition also makes its European debut.

Celebrating three decades since its world premiere at the 1989 Chicago Motor Show, the Mazda MX-5 is the most popular roadster in history, with over 1 million units sold around the world.

Headed for SA

Also appearing at the show is the all-new Mazda3 hatchback and sedan, the first of the new generation of Mazda cars.

The Southern Africa Market can expect the all-new Mazda3 in the second half of 2019.

Mazda will hold a press conference at 13.00 - 13.15 (CET) on Tuesday, March 5, the first of two press days, at its newly located stand: No. 6050 in Hall 6 of the Palexpo convention centre.

The 2019 Geneva Motor Show opens to the public from March 7 -17.
