Like its new-generation siblings – the Mazda CX-5 and Mazda6 – Mazda truly challenged convention with the new Mazda3. Hatchback or sedan, it features the complete line-up of ultra-efficient lightweight SKYACTIV Technology underneath its stunningly aerodynamic KODO – Soul of Motion exterior. The forms have function inside, too. One highlight of the brand-new cabin is the enhanced human-machine interface (HMI), which includes the Active Driving Display, one of the first head-up displays in the C segment, and an optimized rotary commander. This model was also chosen to launch MZD Connect, Mazda’s new in-car connectivity system bringing smartphone convenience safely into the cabin.

Behind the wheel, the new Mazda3 shines with a range of powerful yet frugal(in terms of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions) petrol and clean diesel engines mated to crisp six-speed manual and automatic transmissions. To top it off, the stiffer yet lighter body ensures top-class passive safety, protecting occupants and pedestrians should an accident occur in spite of an array of active safety systems unmatched in this class. Euro NCAP recently granted the new Mazda3 the maximum five stars for safety.
