Are you a fan of the Mazda3? If you love this dynamic vehicle, then you’re in luck! The upgraded model is scheduled to reach South African shores later this year, and both hatchback and sedan variations will be available. Each one will feature their own unique personalities, such as the appealing elegance of the sedan and the dynamic exterior of the hatchback. If you’re looking for a new ride, you can find a Mazda for sale on Auto Mart.
The Mazda3 boasts a ‘KODO – Soul of Motion’ design. Its elegant, urban design is accentuated by stylish headlamps, which offer outstanding visibility in low-lighting conditions. From the moment that you lay eyes on the latest model, you won’t want to look away.
The interior of the Mazda3 is built around the needs of the driver. Its aesthetically appealing instrument panel is conveniently located within easy reach. The quality cabin offers plenty of room for five occupants to get to their destination in comfort. The contoured seating ensures that your ride is enjoyable, and thoughtful storage space makes it easy to keep your vehicle neat and tidy.
Intuitive technology sets the Mazda3 apart from the crowd. The Active model features an expansive central screen that makes it convenient to review system information. The rotary commander, as well as voice command, make it possible to keep your focus on the road while you’re adjusting the settings. Selected models are equipped with an Active Driving Display.
The outstanding safety equipment that these vehicles have to offer inspires confidence in their drivers and their agile performance helps the driver to avoid difficulties on the road. While it’s a lightweight vehicle that delivers an athletic ride quality, it doesn’t compromise on strength. The numerous load paths divert the energy that’s produced from a collision away from the occupant cell. The risk of serious injuries is decreased further by the six SRS airbags.
The 2.0-litre variations are equipped with Dynamic Stability Control, as well as the Traction Control System, to offer the driver additional support. Other highlights of the Mazda3 include ABS and Electronic Brake-Force Distribution. In challenging situations, the risk of a collision is reduced by Emergency Brake Assist. Tackling steep inclines is safer with help from the Hill Launch Assist, which is optional on 2.0L derivatives. The awesome features of these vehicles don’t stop there. Their Emergency Stop Signal uses hazard lights to alert drivers behind your vehicle to potential danger so that the risk of a rear-end collision is reduced. Protection against theft is offered by the remote-control locking and engine immobiliser.
The SKYACTIV-G petrol engines put responsive power at your fingertips. You also have the choice of 2.0-litre variations, which deliver refined power. Both automatic and manual transmissions are available for the Mazda3. These vehicles are equipped with cutting-edge technology for an enhanced performance and improved efficiency. The innovative i-stop feature ensures that you use less fuel by switching off the engine when your vehicle stops and getting it going again when you need to take off. You’ll also benefit from the addition of the G-Vectoring Control.
The 1.6L MZR engine offers 77kW of power at 6 000 rpm. The peak torque for this derivative is 144 Nm at 4 000 rpm. It has a fuel consumption of 6.2L per 100km. The SKYACTIV-G 2.0L petrol engine improves performance while significantly increasing fuel efficiency. This 2.0-litre engine delivers 121 kW of power with a peak torque of 210Nm. It has an impressive fuel consumption of 6.1 litres per 100km.
Available on Auto Mart as a hatchback or sedan, the current model Mazda3 is an enjoyable ride. With its advanced technology and exceptional features, you’re sure to reach your destination feeling relaxed.
