Some automakers are content to engineer the status quo. Not us. At Mazda, we’ve stopped at nothing to totally redefine the driving experience. The result is our revolutionary SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY, a platform that delivers unmatched driving dynamics right alongside unbelievable efficiency.
Inspired by the predatory stance of an animal stalking its prey, the Mazda3’s KODO “Soul of Motion” design captures the essence of poise, energy and power.
All your music, information and connections are just a touch away. The powerful but intuitive MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system provides a multitude of functions, all easily navigated with the Commander control on the console or via the full-color touch-screen.
Mazda’s new 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, 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.
When Driving Matters, performance is never compromised for fuel efficiency. So we came up with a way to enhance both. SKYACTIV®TECHNOLOGY is a unique engineering approach that gives you a better driving experience.
To make your Mazda more visible to drivers ahead of you, we updated the door mirrors to move part of the integrated turn signals to the front. Meanwhile, reducing the width of the mirrors slightly makes it easier to navigate narrow roads and tight spots. Small changes that can make a big difference in driving.
With the Mazda3, you can enjoy all the conveniences of a compact car without ever compromising cargo space. With both rear seatbacks folded down, Mazda3 5-Door models offer up to a generous 47.1 cubic feet of storage space. And when you have more passengers than gear, the Mazda3 offers plenty of versatility. Its 60/40 split fold-down rear seatbacks allow you to either fold down both sections for maximum storage or keep one section up, leaving room for a passenger or child safety seat.
Exhilaration has always run in the Mazda3 family. And the 2017 Mazda3 continues this legacy. The Mazda3’s already excellent performance and handling amplify the exhilaration with a precisely tuned 4-wheel independent suspension system and your choice manual or automatic transmission powered by spirited 2.0-liter offering 154 horsepower.
Every detail of the interior was designed to make driving better. From to 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.
For nimble, refined handling, the lightweight front strut and rear multi-link suspension feature revised design and firmer bushings. Innovative welding of the front and rear cross members achieves impressive stiffness with low weight. Fuel-saving electric power-assisted steering features a high ratio for quick handling, yet delivers great stability at all speeds.
