Mazda3's combination of craftsmanship, quality and uncommonly good driving dynamics place it apart from its competition in the crowded compact segment.
For 2018, Mazda's small sedan and five-door hatchback offer greater value, starting with standard Smart City Brake Support in the entry-level Mazda3 Sport, demonstrating Mazda's commitment to advanced safety technologies at all price points.
Mazda3 is available with a choice of a SKYACTIV-MT six-speed manual or SKYACTIV-DRIVE six-speed automatic transmission; sedan or five-door hatchback body style; and in three trim levels, making it one of the most versatile vehicles available today for anyone from first-time new-car shoppers all the way up to those shopping for a premium compact.
Additionally, all Mazda3 models include G-Vectoring Control, a Mazda-exclusive technology that uses the engine to put a minute amount of weight on the front tires, making steering inputs more surefooted and increasing peace of mind with the goal of improving stability.
The mid-level 2018 Mazda3 Touring carries an even greater level of equipment, starting with what's under its hood. Mazda3 Touring comes standard with a SKYACTIV-G 2.5 engine, making 184 horsepower.
Mazda3 Sport comes standard with cloth seating surfaces; a 2.0-liter, SKYACTIV-G engine that makes 155 horsepower; a 7-inch MAZDA CONNECT infotainment screen with Commander control knob; Bluetooth phone and audio pairing; one-touch driver's power window; power mirrors; remote keyless entry; and push-button ignition, among a long list of other standard items.
Mazda3 Touring comes with leatherette seating surfaces, heated front seats, Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, rain-sensing wipers, automatic on/off headlights, dual-zone automatic climate control, Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry, a six-way power driver's seat and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter knob.
