Thanks to its KODO – Soul of Motion design and SKYACTIV technology, the currentgeneration of Mazda’s global sales leader set new standards; its bold styling, premium quality and advanced technology saw it win praise for its sharp handling, upmarket cabin, alluring looks and efficient engines.
Externally, the latest Mazda3 is marked out by a revised grille with a stronger three- dimensional look, a new front fog light bezel and the availability of LED headlamp technology*. Across both body styles, revised door mirrors feature wraparound turn indicators, while hatchback versions feature a redesigned rear bumper.
The driver-oriented interior space has evolved, with a host of updates that include higher-quality switch panels and handle bezels on the doors, and a newly designed dashboard trim insert. The adoption of an electric parking brake creates space for a more practical centre console.
Revisions to the MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension have focused on delivering improved ride comfort and reducing vibration, while at the same time enhancing the pin-sharp handling for which the Mazda3 is famed.
