Meanwhile, on the mid-level Touring trim, a new popular equipment package is also available for 2016.

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.
