Exhilaration has always run in the Mazda3 family. And the latest Mazda3 continues this legacy.
Our obsession to create beautiful vehicles is expressed through the next evolution of our design language called Kodo: “Soul of Motion.” The Speed Form featured is a sculptural exploration done by the designers at Mazda to realize this vision. Created by the hands of master artisans, the piece conveys energy by eliminating all that is unnecessary, leaving only what is essential––becoming the inspiration for its final design stage: the All-New Mazda3.
The interior of the Mazda3 is in perfect symmetry with you. For decades, we’ve studied the human body: how it moves, sensations of touch, sound and sight, muscle and skeletal structure. Every consideration has been made to the Mazda3 feels as if it were built just for you. Effortlessly responding to your direction.
The Mazda3 is engineered to help insulate you from distracting outside noise, while still allowing for pertinent sounds from the road and engine. It’s all about shielding you from all that is unnecessary, so you can focus on what will bring you joy: exceptional driving.
Every aspect of the Mazda3 is engineered to work in harmony with your sensibilities. A suspension that considers the way the human body moves naturally––and balances to the car’s movements––for improved handling and comfort. And engine technology that offers impressive fuel efficiency without compromising performance. Countless efforts have been made to enhance the joy from driving through a completely holistic, smarter approach.
Experience the ultimate in mobile connectivity with the new era of Mazda3. Available Apple CarPlay™ integration (shown) allows you to access your iPhone’s maps, playlists, contacts and compatible apps with your voice through Siri. For Android users, Android Auto™ integration is also available.
The intuitive Mazda Connect™ Infotainment System helps you stay connected to your music, entertainment, friends and family, all while staying focused on the road. The optimally positioned multifunction Commander control lets you navigate the system’s features without distraction.
Every aspect of the Mazda3 was measured, from the tires to the headliner, to minimize any road noise. During a comprehensive study on how sounds are transmitted through the vehicle’s cabin, speakers were repositioned depending on their frequency to produce a better sound. One of those changes was to mount the woofers, normally found in the doors of most cars, onto the side cowls. This allows for an audio system with more bass that won’t rattle the doors. As an additional benefit, the lack of a speaker port in the door reduced another area where potential road noise could disrupt the experience.
True peace of mind is at the forefront of Mazda3. A higher concentration of ultra-high tensile steel reinforces the chassis, while a newly developed knee airbag for the driver’s seat is not only a first for Mazda, but comes as standard equipment.
