BETTER HANDLING. MORE DRIVING EXHILARATION.
Exhilaration has always run in the Mazda3 family. And the 2018 Mazda3 continues this legacy. The Mazda3's already excellent performance and handling amplify the exhilaration with a precisely tuned 4-wheel independent suspension system. Plus, it comes with your choice of manual or automatic transmissions powered by spirited 2.0-liter or 2.5-liter SKYACTIV-G gasoline engines, with the 2.5-liter offering 184 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque.
ELEVATED INTERIOR FOR ELEVATED DRIVING
Every detail of the interior was designed to make driving better. From the instrument panel to the gear selector, everything was placed with intention and care to make your every move more intuitive. Why? To let you focus on what matters most: driving.
THE PERFECT FIT
The Mazda3's sport seats are contoured to mold perfectly to the body, giving you and your passengers a more comfortable and connected ride, no matter how long the commute. The high-end sports seats—available in cloth, leatherette or dual-stitched leather—are as carefully crafted as they are beautiful.
THE HOLE TRUTH
By making the seat perforations moderately large and the distances between them small, our engineers created upholstery that's not only soft and breathable, but also absorbs road noise for an enhanced audio listening environment.
BETTER DRIVING BY DESIGN
When we set out to design the Mazda3 cabin, we did it with the driver in mind - each step of the way. We considered every detail that could make the driving experience better, from the seats, center console, full-color Active Driving Display and instrument panel, down to the door pockets and handles. The goal was to create a more sophisticated, intuitive interior that revolves around the driver.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO BREATHE LIFE INTO SHEET METAL?
KODO: "Soul of Motion." It's the inspiration behind every Mazda vehicle. KODO uses the linear contours of natural forms to give each Mazda a striking sense of motion, even at a standstill.
THE WHEEL COMES FULL CIRCLE
The Mazda3 4-Door is designed from the wheels up. The sleek and stylish available 18-inch alloys are sure to turn heads as quickly as they turn corners. Even at a standstill, the dynamic design in the Mazda3's wheel spokes give them the look of speed in motion. And beyond their athletic, high-end appearance, they're specially designed to suppress road noise and heighten handling stability.
DESIGNED TO STAND OUT
The exterior of the 2018 Mazda3 4-Door is the true epitome of KODO design. Its sleek, sporty contours tell you everything about how it drives—without ever getting behind the wheel. And available features like 18" alloys, LED headlights and rear decklid spoiler elevate the 2018 Mazda3 4-Door's styling to another level.
PREMIUM SIGNATURE PAINT: MACHINE GRAY METALLIC
Machine Gray Metallic paint makes the Mazda3 look as if it's machined from a solid piece of steel. It starts with a black primer coat that's covered with a precisely sprayed layer of aluminum silver paint. The process is highly controlled to ensure the coat's aluminum paint flakes fall into a pattern parallel with the Mazda3's body panels. This gives the black and silver hues more luminosity and a liquid reflective quality. Finally, layers of gray-tinted and colorless clear coating are applied to complete the premium look.
DYNAMIC PERFORMANCE MEETS SUPERIOR EFFICIENCY
While other car companies compromise power to improve fuel efficiency, Mazda has taken a dramatically different approach. Far more than just an efficient engine, SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY is a holistic system that takes the entire car into consideration, delivering a series of innovations that work together to improve the overall driving experience. Power and performance are delivered in abundance, along with efficiencies that allow the Mazda3 to offer up to an astounding EPA-estimated 37 highway MPG.
BETTER GRIP. BETTER DRIVE.
The Mazda3's Electric Power Assist Steering allows you to feel the road while Dynamic Stability Control helps your wheels grip the road during quick turns. Precise and powerful, the Mazda3 proves that more than ever, passion and performance are in its blood.
MORE ADVENTURES PER GALLON
SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY makes driving better by enhancing driving dynamics while reducing fuel consumption. So with up to an EPA-estimated 37 highway MPG, you get more miles of uninterrupted enjoyment.
MORE CONFIDENCE ON EVERY CURVE.
Mazda's latest technology, SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control, helps achieve a smoother, less fatiguing drive for you and your passengers. It's a highly efficient vehicle movement control system that operates in the background during a spirited drive. When cornering, on initial turn-in and throughout, the system works seamlessly by adjusting power delivery and shifting vehicle weight. The effect is subtle, but how you feel after a great drive isn't. Why go to these lengths? Because we believe no detail is too small when it comes to making driving better.
