The Mazda 3 has always been known as a car that separated itself from competition in the Compact Car segment, and this trend continues in the latest iteration.
Stylish, elegant, and aerodynamic. That’s the all-new 2020 Mazda 3 for you, whether in its Sedan or Sportback form.
The all-new 3 is the first Mazda to embody the new Soul of Motion design philosophy of the Japanese brand. Fluidic and curvy without trying too hard, its exterior exudes class and character usually found in more premium segments. It plays with light and shadows to accentuate the conservatively classy contours of the car. The horizontal LED headlights are significantly slimmer than the previous generations for a seamless fit with the assertive front bumper and lip — the only parts of the car with sharp features. From the front, the new design language stands out as the lines continue through the sides and into the rear. The 1.5-liter variant gets 16-inch aluminum alloy wheels, while the range-topping 2.0-liter grade flaunts 18-inch aluminum alloys. Both are in Gray Metallic. A Skyactiv-Drive 6-speed automatic with sport mode is connected to either engine option.
Mazda definitely wanted to incorporate a premium feel in the Compact Car segment with the all-new Mazda 3. In order to do this, they also redesigned the interior to match the superior ambiance of the body. The dashboard is designed minimally and wrapped in either leather or soft-touch materials.
Buttons and controls are solidly constructed and flaunt quality when operated. The interior comes in different materials depending on the variant, from fabric to red leather. Standard across all variants is a Mazda Connect audio system with a new 8.8-inch LCD screen. Although it’s no longer a touchscreen, the system can be operated through the new command-knob. Climate control is also standard for all variants.
