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.
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.
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.
The multifunction Commander control positioned on the center console offers a seamless way to control the functions displayed on the standard 7” full-color touch-screen—such as audio, hands-free telephone, and the available navigation system.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
Mazda warrants that new Mazda cars and trucks will be free of defects with normal use and prescribed maintenance for 36 months or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. Ordinary maintenance items or adjustments, parts subject to normal wear and replacement and certain other items are excluded. This transferable "limited warranty" is included on all new Mazda vehicles sold and serviced in the United States.
A confident drive is a better drive. That’s why our available i-ACTIVSENSE® safety innovations use sophisticated technologies to help alert you to hazards before they happen. It’s another way Mazda lets you focus on what matters: driving.
When traveling at speeds between about 2 and 18 mph, standard Smart City Brake Support helps detect objects ahead and prepares your vehicle by adjusting brake pads closer to the disc. If no action is taken, the brakes are automatically applied.
