Special features for 2016

Mazda's goal with the Mazda3 has always been to offer the most fun-to-drive compact car on the market. The Mazda3 directly competes with some of the best-selling cars on the road, including the Honda Civic, the Toyota Corolla and the Hyundai Elantra. With a starting base price below $18,000, the Mazda3 is competitively priced while still maintaining enough upscale features to feel like a much more expensive car. With a sportier and more direct driving feel than its competitors, the Mazda3 is able to do everything typically asked of a compact, while still putting a smile on the face of drivers.
The Mazda3 returns with four door and hatchback styles and seating for five, offered in several trim and sub trim levels. Base outfitting includes: 16” steel wheels, powered side mirrors, 60/40 split and fold rear seating, tilt and telescope steering wheel, 7” touchscreen, Bluetooth/iPod/USB integration, voice command, six speaker audio system and HD radio. Upgrades can add on features like leather seating, larger alloy wheels, heated side mirrors, automated wipers, collision mitigation system, premium Bose audio system, sunroof, fog lamps, rear spoilers, remote entry/start, powered front seating, paddle shifters and more. Driving the Mazda3 is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that’s rated at 155 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque.
