Mazda’s newly redesigned Mazda3 is a quantum leap forward in the overall driving experience. Both the Sedan and the Sport (hatchback) model boast the visually stunning ‘Kodo: Soul of Motion’ design model, a concept meant to give the car a ‘life’ of its own. For some people, a great looking car is enough but Mazda knows that’s only half the battle. A car should make a visual statement, but it should also provide performance, safety and efficiency in equal measures. Enter SkyActiv technology, a series of ground-breaking innovations that improve more than just the engine. It’s a total package improvement philosophy. A lighter, stronger frame, an advanced transmission that reduces fuel consumption by up to 7% and a high compression engine with a specialized exhaust system and a host of other technical features designed to save you fuel – and money – without negatively affecting your driving experience. The new 5-cycle testing means fuel economy numbers better reflect real-world driving conditions.
i-ACTIVSENSE is a new generation of active safety technologies that automatically senses the vehicle’s environs – from nighttime lighting, to the proximity of other vehicles – and help the driver recognize hazards, avoid collisions and reduce the severity of accidents when they simply cannot be avoided.
