Mazda North American Operations today announced pricing for the slightly renewed Mazda 3 model. The Mazda 3 will be sold at starting MSRP $17,845. The vehicle is a great combination of safety, comfort and design which brings a wholly different option for hatchback/sedan buying customers in the United States. The Mazda3 is available with a 155-horsepower SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter engine in Mazda3 i configuration or a 184-horsepower SKYACTIV-G 2.5-liter engine in Mazda3 s vehicles. You can combine these with a six-speed manual or available six-speed automatic transmission and in four or five-door body styles.
Mazda3 comes with a wide range of interior comforts like the adaptive high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights and Mazda Radar Cruise Control. With KODO—Soul of Motion design, Mazda3 stands out in a segment awash with conformity. This means that for a price of under twenty thousand dollars you get a lot of standard and optional features, ensuring a safe and comfort ride in your hatchback.
While many have praised Mazda’s performance, safety and overall appeal of the Mazda3, the design of the hatchback and its sedan version stand as its most important feature. The curvaceous lines showcased entitle its owners with one of the most gorgeous vehicles in its class. The additional exterior options like the bigger wheels add aggressive looks to its outer appearance, ensuring this vehicle doesn’t go unnoticed. While not significantly upgraded, the small improvements make the Mazda3 one of the most appealing vehicles in its segment. Competing against the likes of a Mercedes-Benz A-Class, BMW 1 Series or Ford Focus, the Mazda3 is an equal peer to any of those, providing another healthy option for potential customers worldwide.
