KODO: "Soul of Motion." It's the inspiration behind every Mazda vehicle. KODO uses the linear contours of natural forms to give each Mazda a striking sense of motion, even at a standstill.
The Mazda3 5-Door is designed from the wheels up. The sleek and stylish available 18-inch alloys are sure to turn heads as quickly as they turn corners. Even at a standstill, the dynamic design in the Mazda3's wheel spokes gives them the look of speed in motion. And beyond their athletic, high-end appearance, they're specially designed to suppress road noise and heighten handling stability.
The exterior of the 2018 Mazda3 5-Door is the true epitome of KODO design. Its sleek, sporty contours tell you everything about how it drives-without ever getting behind the wheel. And available features like 18" alloys and LED headlights, taillights and fog lights elevate its styling to another level.
Mounted discreetly within the bumper, the Rear Parking Sensors notify the driver of obstructions behind the vehicle using an alarm sound.
Don't let your journey end with a trip to the paint shop. Help protect your Mazda3's finish from rocks and other road debris with our durable front and rear Splash Guards.
This versatile crossbar system is a foundation for holding all sorts of gear. It can accommodate a range of specific attachments to carry bikes, skis, snowboards and more. So whatever activities you love, your favorite gear can go with you.
ELEVATED INTERIOR FOR ELEVATED DRIVING. Every detail of the interior was designed to make driving better. From the instrument panel to the gear selector, everything was placed with intention and care to make your every move more intuitive. Why? To let you focus on what matters most: driving.
When we designed the Mazda3 cabin, we did it with the driver in mind-each step of the way. We considered every detail that could make the driving experience better, from the seats, center console, full-color Active Driving Display and instrument panel, down to the door pockets and handles. The goal was to create a more sophisticated, intuitive interior that revolves around the driver.
With the Mazda3, you can enjoy all the conveniences of a compact car without ever compromising cargo space. With both rear seatbacks folded down, Mazda3 5-Door models offer up to a generous 47.1 cubic feet of storage space. And when you have more passengers than gear, every Mazda3 model offers plenty of versatility. Its 60/40 split fold-down rear seatbacks allow you to either fold down both sections for maximum storage or keep one section up, leaving room for a passenger or child safety seat.
The Mazda3's sport seats are contoured to mold perfectly to the body, giving you and your passengers a more comfortable and connected ride, no matter how long the commute. The high-end sports seats-available in cloth, leatherette or dual-stitched leather-are as carefully crafted as they are beautiful.
To instill the joy of driving into every Mazda, we engineer with a human-centric development philosophy. It's how we created SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control. Instead of focusing on the mechanics of vehicle dynamics, we started our development with people. Running countless studies on their characteristics and behaviors to design a vehicle that works harmoniously with the driver. The result? A car that feels like an extension of your body, with more precise steering, better control and less fatigue.
Step up the look of your Mazda3. Our high-quality aluminum Alloy Pedals give your car a sporty, more powerful appearance.
These gleaming doorsills are a stylish calling card to both a welcome entry and graceful exit.
BETTER HANDLING. MORE DRIVING EXHILARATION. Exhilaration has always run in the Mazda3 family. And the 2018 Mazda3 continues this legacy. The Mazda3's already excellent performance and handling amplify the exhilaration with a precisely tuned 4-wheel independent suspension system and your choice of manual or automatic transmission powered by spirited 2.0-liter or 2.5-liter SKYACTIV®-G gasoline engines, with the 2.5-liter offering 184 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque.
While other car companies compromise power to improve fuel efficiency, Mazda has taken a dramatically different approach. Far more than just an engine with hybrid-like efficiency, SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY is a holistic system that takes the entire car into consideration, delivering a series of innovations that work together to improve the overall driving experience. Power and performance are delivered in abundance, along with efficiencies that allow the Mazda32 to offer up to an astounding EPA-estimated 37 highway MPG3.
The Mazda3's Electric Power Assist Steering allows you to feel the road while Dynamic Stability Control4 helps your wheels grip the road during quick turns. Precise, powerful and performance-oriented, the Mazda3 proves that more than ever, passion and performance are in its blood.
SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY makes driving better by enhancing driving dynamics while reducing fuel consumption. So with up to an EPA-estimated 37 highway MPG3, you get more miles of uninterrupted enjoyment.
Mazda's latest technology, SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control, helps achieve a smoother, less fatiguing drive for you and your passengers. It's a highly efficient vehicle movement control system that operates in the background during a spirited drive. When cornering, the system works seamlessly by adjusting power delivery and shifting vehicle weight. The effect is subtle, but how you feel after a great drive isn't. Why go to these lengths? Because we believe no detail is too small when it comes to making driving better.
Our most technologically advanced Mazda is equipped with our most technologically advanced cockpit. With MAZDA CONNECT™, our next-generation infotainment system, you get a host of entertainment and information options. All you have to do is pair your smartphone with the Mazda3 via Bluetooth® to stream your favorite content. MAZDA CONNECT™ makes staying informed and entertained effortless. Everything is easily controlled with the Commander control on the center console or via the 7" full-color touch-screen.
A connected driving experience should even include your sense of hearing. That's why the Mazda3 offers an available Bose® Centerpoint® 2 Surround Sound System. Delivering clear audio through nine speakers, it lets you enjoy an immersive surround sound experience from nearly any source, including CDs, MP3 devices, radio broadcasts and available SiriusXM Satellite Radio6. Plus, it's been fine-tuned to reproduce sound for the Mazda3's specific interior dimensions. So you get a lifelike surround experience from any seat in the house.
The multifunction Commander control positioned on the center console offers a seamless way to control the functions displayed on the standard 7" full-color touch-screen-such as audio, hands-free telephone, and the available navigation system.
A confident drive is a better drive. That's why our available i-ACTIVSENSE® safety innovations use sophisticated technologies to help alert you to hazards before they happen. It's another way Mazda lets you focus on what matters: driving.
This available system is designed to help you see around corners at night. As you turn into a corner, the headlights pivot up to 15 degrees in the direction of your turn, improving visibility and allowing you to spot potential hazards ahead.
When traveling at speeds of 37 mph or higher, available Lane Departure Warning System gives you audible and visual warnings when it detects that your vehicle is about to unintentionally depart from its lane.
When backing up, available Rear Cross Traffic Alert helps detect a vehicle approaching from the side and promptly alerts the driver with an audible warning, as well as a visual warning in either side mirror.
Available High Beam Control helps the driver see better at night by maximizing opportunities to use the high beams. The system automatically switches to low beams when it detects oncoming traffic and/or a vehicle ahead.
Available Mazda Radar Cruise Control judges the relative speed and distance to the car ahead and works within a set speed range to help maintain a safe following distance. Warnings alert you if your vehicle is fast approaching the one ahead.
Available Lane-keep Assist adds to the warnings of the Lane Departure Warning System. When it senses a potential unintentional lane departure, it will perform minor steering corrections to help guide your vehicle back to the center of the lane.
Available Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring helps detect objects in your blind spots and alerts you with a chime and warning light in the side mirror. It also detects and warns you of fast-approaching vehicles that may enter a blind spot.
