The sporty new Mazda 3 takes hatchback driving into new territory. Designed to emulate artwork with its classic sculpting and flowing lines, and delivering performance to thrill, it truly connects you to the road. With five trim levels on offer – SE-L, SE-L Lux, Sport Lux, GT Sport and GT Sport Tech – it comes in guises to suit even the most discerning motorist.
On crowded streets, a car has to be special to stand out.
Mazda’s KODO Design language endows the Mazda 3 with a powerful presence wherever it goes, ensuring it grabs attention.
Slender headlights and a prominent front grille give it a striking aesthetic, while the long bonnet and flowing lines deliver a sense of movement, even when the car is stationary.
Sculpted shapes lend athleticism to the design, and a streamlined profile ensures excellent aerodynamics, meaning form and function blend seamlessly to provide a stunning drive.
Interior: Soul of Motion
Step inside the Mazda 3 and you’ll find it no less impressive.
A clean, understated dash gives a feel of premium functionality, with all controls perfectly placed for your convenience. Relax into the comfortable seats – which can be adjusted to suit your height and posture – and enjoy the feeling of complete control as you take to the road.
Your passengers, meanwhile, can travel in style thanks to ample legroom, supportive rear seats and access to their favourite music via the audio system with USB connectivity.
With Bluetooth as standard from SE-L trim up, you can stay connected on the go too.
Equipped with a choice of Skyactiv-G 2.0-litre engines, the Mazda 3 delivers strong performance and outstanding efficiency.
These units are available with cylinder deactivation and mild hybrid to keep your emissions low while retaining impressive power and offering a smooth, refined drive.
There’s also a 1.8-litre Skyactiv-D engine for those seeking livelier responses and increased fuel economy – it returns up to 56.5mpg on the WLTP combined cycle.
On the road, the Mazda 3 handles beautifully thanks to its Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture, which incorporates greater rigidity in the body and exceptional roadholding ability.
Advanced safety technology
The Mazda 3 has been carefully engineered to offer the utmost protection for you and your passengers – not only in its rigid body structure, but also through the inclusion of advanced technology.
Alongside standard features such as airbags and cruise control, SE-L trim and above offers Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Smart City Brake Support and Driver Attention Alert.
So you can hit the road with complete confidence.
