Exhilaration has always run in the Mazda3 family. And the latest Mazda3 continues this legacy.
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.
Mazda’s KODO design language conveys a sense of movement, capturing the pure, linear motion of natural forms. With this philosophy, we transform ordinary sheet metal into contours that stir the senses.
The Mazda3’s sport seats are contoured to mold perfectly to the body, giving you and your passengers a more comfortable and connected ride. The high-end sports seats are as carefully crafted as they are beautiful.
The M-Hybrid system uses Mazda’s new electric device technology. This technology helps improve fuel economy by regenerating energy recovered during deceleration and using it to power onboard electrical equipment. It also powers a motor that assists the engine when accelerating from a standstill, a time when the engine benefits from it most.
Skyactiv Technology makes driving better by enhancing driving dynamics while reducing fuel consumption. Advanced technology because we think in you and your passengers.
Mazda’s latest technology, Skyactiv-Vehicle Dynamics with G-Vectoring Control Plus (GVC PLUS), helps achieve a smoother drive. Cornering works seamlessly by adjusting power delivery and shifting vehicle weight.
The Mazda3’s Electric Power Assist Steering allows you to feel the road while Dynamic Stability Control helps your wheels grip the road during quick turns. More than ever, passion and performance are in its blood.
Inattention and fatigue are a common cause of accidents. Driver Monitoring's infrared camera and LED mounted in the centre display constantly check the driver for drowsiness, inattention and fatigue at two levels: Attention (onset of inattention or drowsiness) and Caution (increased levels). If the system determines the situation is dangerous, it sounds an alert and primes the Smart Brake Support (SBS) system.
LDWS employs a forward-sensing camera to monitor lane markings on the road ahead, constantly checking whether the vehicle is correctly centred in the lane. When unintentional lane departure is detected, LDWS warns the driver by vibrating the steering wheel or sounding an alert. The system operates when the car is moving forwards at speeds higher than approximately 60 km/h.
CTS helps reduce driver fatigue when in traffic jams on the highway. When engaged, CTS automatically controls vehicle speed to keep a suitable distance from the vehicle ahead, and also assists with steering torque to maintain proper lane position through bends. If lane markings are not detected, the system follows the path of the preceding vehicle. In this way, CTS promotes a safe, comfortable driving experience.
When entering a T junction, collisions with vehicles approaching from the front left and right blind spots can easily occur. FCTA uses front side radars to monitor these front diagonal blind spots and warn the driver of approaching vehicles. The system operates when the car is moving at speeds up to approximately 10 km/h and is only designed to detect the presence of motor vehicles.
When reversing, low objects behind the vehicle are hard, or even impossible, to see from the driver's seat. SBS-R's rear-facing ultrasonic sensor detects such obstacles behind the vehicle when reversing at speeds between approximately 2 and 8 km/h. If the system determines the driver is unaware of the obstacle and judges that a collision is imminent, it applies the brakes to help reduce collision damage.
Vehicles approaching from the left or right at the rear of the vehicle are another source of danger when reversing. SBS-RC detects vehicles approaching from the vehicle's left and right read blind spots when reversing at speeds between approximately 0 and 10 km/h. If the system judges an impact is unavoidable, it operates the brakes to help mitigate damage caused by the collision.
