Mazda 3 Overview


The newly refined 2017 MAZDA3 never stops pushing the limits of innovation and design. It keeps getting better because it’s built by design perfectionists for driving enthusiasts. From outstanding safety and fuel economy to cutting-edge technologies and head-turning design, the new MAZDA3 delivers unfailing craftsmanship and quality. Because we wouldn’t build anything less.

KODO Design

In restyling the MAZDA3, Mazda engineers examined every curve, every line and every angle to achieve bolder, more dignified proportions. Slightly lower and wider than the previous generation, the 2017 MAZDA3’s crouching stance is more than just beautiful. It’s also aerodynamic, delivering a very low coefficient of drag with improved performance and handling. 

Illuminate the Night

The restructured KODO Design headlights are not only striking, but provide a sharper vision of the road. And with the available LED headlights with signature lighting††, LED fog and tail lights, it’s a beautiful way to illuminate your journey. 



New Front Grille

The refaced front grille and redesigned signature wing give a stronger, three-dimensional appearance and depth, evoking the desire to get in and enjoy your drive, even at a distance. 



The Craft Behind Engineering Excellence

To achieve a greater level of precision and artistry, Mazda engineers sculpt every design in hard clay rather than solely rely on computer-aided design. It’s a level of craftsmanship that might seem extreme, but we wouldn’t build anything less.



The 2017 MAZDA3 is our most advanced – and refined – yet. Every detail is designed with the utmost care to create a new level of connectedness between you, your MAZDA3 and the road. For 2017, we’ve evolved the cockpit with new, elegant finishes and added even more safety features, so you can enjoy a relaxed, reliable and confident drive, no matter how far the journey.

Interior Refinements

For Mazda engineers, creating a car that’s sporty, practical and exhilarating to drive simply isn’t enough. They want to enliven your driving experience. The 2017 MAZDA3’s new interior touches, such as a restyled centre console, centre display and instrument cluster, are just a few of the details that bring a new level of distinction that transforms the status quo. All designed to allow you to relax, heighten your senses and deliver pure driving enjoyment. 

Driver‑Centric Cockpit

The refreshed cockpit ensures intuitive driveroriented engagement. New high-end touches include an available heated leather steering wheel, stylish instrument cluster design and elegant dashboard decoration panel.



Colour Active Driving Display (ADD)

The available Active Driving Display (ADD) – now with full colour readout – projects critical driving information directly in your field of view allowing you to keep your eyes focused on the road. 



Sound Insulation

Mazda designers enhanced exterior noise control using a matrix of sound-deadening materials, tighter body gaps and improved sound insulation. The result is a quieter ride that lets you hear your music better – or just enjoy the peace and quiet a little more.



A Smoother, More Fluid Ride.

Introducing our all-new technology called SKYACTIV‑VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G‑Vectoring Control (GVC). Founded on our groundbreaking SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY, GVC works behind the scenes to achieve a smoother, less fatiguing drive for you and your passengers by subtly adjusting engine torque, intentionally optimizing vehicle weight transfer during everyday commutes and spirited drives alike. The result is steering that is more precise and a ride that is more comfortable for drivers and passengers.


The 2017 MAZDA3 comes with options to keep you entertained, informed and connected, no matter where you’re headed. Enjoy connectivity features such as the available HMI Commander††† that allows you to easily control everything from navigation to audio with controls placed at your fingertips. There’s also an available SMS text readout feature†††, and USB and auxiliary audio ports come standard.

Effortless Infotainment

MAZDA CONNECT makes staying informed and entertained effortless. Features such as audio, hands-free phone and available navigation are easily controlled using the convenient, multifunction HMI Commander control.



In Tune with Every Sense

Custom-built for the MAZDA3, the available, premium 9-speaker Bose sound system enables listeners to enjoy a surround sound experience from nearly any stereo source, including CDs, MP3 devices, radio broadcasts and the available SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
