The new Mazda3: sharper, smarter and more sophisticated than ever before
The new 2017 Mazda3 introduces technology that improves an already exceptional drive in every way. Offering an outstanding mix of sophisticated, yet entertaining driving dynamics and highly efficient, yet ultra responsive engine performance, the new Mazda3 is at the forefront of driver enjoyment and vehicle efficiency. Refined, comfortable, responsive and agile, from behind the wheel, the Mazda3 is the hatchback for the road.
With an award-winning range of SKYACTIV petrol and diesel engines, the 2017 Mazda3 is offered with a choice of 105PS 1.5-litre or 150PS 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D diesel, or 120PS and 165PS 2.0-litre SKYACTIV-G petrol engines. Featuring Transient Control, which ensures a more positive throttle response and provides a more petrol-like engine feel, diesel refinement is also enhanced thanks to Natural Sound Smoother (NSS) technology, reducing noise and vibration to impressively low levels. Combined with revisions to the suspension, and the addition of G-Vectoring Control, which varies engine torque to optimise wheel load, the Mazda3 is a sharper, more agile and more fun drive than ever.
Not only is it sharper to drive, but it is also sharper looking, too. The KODO: Soul of Motion design language has evolved subtly, with a stronger three-dimensional grille, revised door mirrors featuring wraparound indicators, a redesigned rear bumper and new alloy wheel designs. Inside, the driver-oriented interior now features even higher quality materials, as well as new trim and a new steering wheel design, while the adoption of an electric parking brake creates even more interior space. Enhanced all around, the new Mazda3 is everything you’ve come to expect, but more. Take a look at the improved Mazda3 Fastback as well.
