SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY

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.

Connectivity

MAZDA CONNECT™ INFOTAINMENT SYSTEM

All your music, information and connections are just a touch away. The powerful but intuitive MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system5 provides a multitude of functions, all easily navigated with the Commander control on the console or via the full-color touch-screen.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Technology
SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS W/ G-VECTORING CONTROL

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.

 

Performance

SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY

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.

Safety
Better Visibility

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.

Performance

BETTER HANDLING. MORE DRIVING EXHILARATION.

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.

Design
AN INTERIOR BUILT AROUND THE DRIVER

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. 

Design

KODO DESIGN

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.

 
 

Design
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. Adding to the Mazda3’s high-end appeal are its sports seats—available in cloth, leatherette or dual-stitched leather—which are as carefully crafted as they are beautiful.

 

Stability

SKYACTIV® CHASSIS

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.
