Responsive power in your hands
Mazda3 puts you in the driver’s seat like no other. Its light weight unleashes sporting agility delivered with a smooth, quiet ride and assured handling. SKYACTIV-G petrol engines are quick to respond, with refined power coming from the 2.0 litre engine. Automatic or manual, transmissions shift gears with polished precision.
Mazda3 brings a new level of driving enjoyment thanks to the full suite of SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY – breakthrough innovations that completely re-engineer every vehicle aspect to heighten performance and unleash greater efficiency.
Clever features like i-stop save you even more fuel by turning off the engine when you come to a halt, restarting the instant you want to move.
Mazda3 also features G-Vectoring Control, the first innovation from the SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS series of technologies.
1.6L MZR Engine.
Available on the Original, Active and Dynamic models is the renowned MZR 1.6L engine which delivers 77kW of power at 6000 rpm, torque of 144Nm/4000 rpm, while achieving a fuel economy of 6.2L/100km.
New-generation design and materials achieve amazing lightness and rigidity. The underbody’s straight-frame construction runs uninterrupted through the framework to boost stiffness and save weight. Key joints are strengthened by advanced techniques that require no heavy reinforcement. The employment of high and ultra-high tensile steel cuts weight, bolsters rigidity and aids safety. We’ve worked tirelessly to save every gram. Despite being light, the new Mazda3 disperses crash energy in multiple directions to achieve collision performance that is world-class.
SKYACTIV Drive automatic transmission.
We’ve combined the best aspects of conventional automatic, continuously variable and dual clutch transmissions. So you get maximum driving fun and high efficiency. The SKYACTIV-Drive transmission couples directly with the engine over a far wider range than other automatics. This delivers a significant increase in fuel economy and a more direct, manual transmission-like power delivery and driving feel. Shifts are smooth, quick and accurate across the 6-speeds.
