The Mazda3 hatchback strikes you with its powerful, seductive presence and strong sporty appeal. It is designed to make you feel you’re looking at a work of art – not just a car. The way light plays on its flowing lines gives the impression that it is moving, even when standing still.
The new Mazda3 is the first model to adopt this evolved version of Kodo design. While featuring a simple 'single motion' overall form, the way that light and shadows shift and reflections move over the body creates a highly vital and dramatic impression that goes beyond previous iterations of the design language. Another goal in styling the new Mazda3 range was to give each model its own distinctive design personality: the hatchback with its own more emotive design, and the saloon offering more elegant, prestigious proportions.
Our Kodo: Soul of Motion design aims to create a bond between car and driver, built on strong feelings of desire and pleasure. The Mazda3 is a perfect example, so we put our artful design to the test by asking people to wear a Muse-Brain Sensing headband to measure reactions when they first see the car.
At Mazda we don't think you should just drive a car, but feel a car. That’s why our Mazda3 has reached the ultimate form of beauty through countless hours of art, science and craftsmanship. The result is driving pleasure that starts even before you get behind the wheel and carries on long after the drive is over.

THE PUREST DEFINITION OF SOUND
Driving inspires you in the Mazda3 through the art of sound. Bose and Mazda worked closely together to study how physics and human emotion could powerfully connect to give you a more intense enjoyment of music. Deeply integrated into the car, the sound system positions speakers optimally and features BassMatch for incredible bass impact
When you need information, it’s right where you want it. The newly adopted enhancement is the 8.8-inch widescreen center display. It offers a simplified operation that requires only the use of the commander control, the updated center display and features a new intuitive guidance system suporting an easy command.
When you drive the Mazda3, our suite of I-ACTIVSENSE safety technologies gives you all-round protection. One of the features is our Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) system which uses sensors to continually monitor the speed between you and obstacles in front and the closing distance.
Each system works together intelligently to recognise potential hazards, avoid collisions and reduce the severity of accidents when they are unavoidable. Feel connected to your Mazda like never before and enjoy the drive knowing you and your passengers are intelligently protected.
