2018 Mazda3

The 2018 Mazda3 received newly standard features that continued to reinforce the philosophy of putting people first. Available as a sedan or a hatchback, this compact car is able to handle all sorts of lifestyles, from active to family and everything in between. 

While passengers can appreciate the premium interior features, the driver will enjoy the driving dynamics set by the philosophy of Jinba Ittai—a harmony between the car and the driver. Subtle exterior tweaks for 2018 elevate the vehicle’s KODO—Soul of Motion design, and help it stand out for its purity of design in addition to its purpose for drivers who appreciate style and substance.
