Every year automakers make various updates to their lineup of vehicles — some years see bigger changes than others, but even the smallest tweaks can make a big impact on your overall driving experience.
Mazda makes some incredibly popular vehicles, such as the Mazda3 and the CX-5 luxury crossover SUV, and this year’s models are sure to please. Read on to get an overview of some of the important improvements made to these models in 2020.
2019 Mazda3: New Driving System, Silent Interior
The Mazda3 is now available with the manufacturer’s beloved SKYACTIV technology! It uses 27 sensors surrounding the car which scan the road no less than 200 times per second. These sensors act as the car’s eyes and ears, and the particularly evolved SKYACTIV technology found in the 2020 Mazda3 is built to respond to what the sensors pick up.
For example, if the sensors determine that the car’s back wheels needs more torque because the road is slippery, it sends the needed boost automatically. This makes for a drive that is not only more comfortable but safer too, even in the rain and snow.
Plus, the interior of the car is Mazda’s quietest ever. Unnecessary vibrations have been muted, so you’re more likely to feel calm and serene behind the wheel even if you’re sitting in frustrating traffic, especially if you’re listening to the Bose speakers.

2020 CX-5: Under the Hood Improvements and Tweaks
The largest change to the CX-5 for 2020 has got to be the new Skyactiv-G 2.5 Dynamic Pressure Turbo engine. While turbocharged engines notoriously suffer from lag, engineers created an engine which gives more power at lower levels of RPM, and the result is a turbocharged engine that is stunningly lag-free.
The new Exhaust Gas Circulation technology makes the new CX-5’s engine substantially more fuel efficient, while also supplying best-in-class torque. You won’t need to choose between buying a vehicle that’s rugged or graceful; when you select the 2020 CX-5, you get both.
Other improvements include advances to the award-winning G-Vectoring Control and G-Vectoring Control Plus. These key tweaks to the suspension and braking system will heighten what’s already a stunning connection between driver and vehicle, the embodiment of Mazda’s Jinba Ittai philosophy.
Additional cosmetic and design changes are sure to please, as well as important improvements to the infotainment centre and media console — connecting your phone to the car’s system has never been easier.
These vehicles received substantial upgrades this year, so those who loved the old models will be even bigger fans of the 2020 model. Mazda was wise to avoid changing too much for 2020, as both these vehicles were widely loved around the world. As a result, nothing was changed without a good reason, and the manufacturer is right to believe these improvements will only make these vehicles even more special.
