For 2018, Mazda’s small sedan and five-door hatchback offer as standard Smart City Brake Support in the entry-level Mazda3 Sport, demonstrating Mazda’s commitment to advanced safety technologies at all price points.

Mazda3 Sport comes standard with cloth seating surfaces, a 2.0-liter, SKYACTIV-G engine that makes 155 horsepower a 7-inch infotainment screen with Commander control knob, Bluetooth phone and audio pairing, one-touch driver’s power window, power mirrors, remote keyless entry, and push-button ignition, among a long list of other standard items. 

Mazda3 Sport sedan models have an available package that includes 16-inch alloy wheels, Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, satin chrome interior trim and power heated outside mirrors with integrated turn signals. Mazda3 five-door models have 16-inch alloy wheels as standard.

Additionally, all Mazda3 models include G-Vectoring Control, a Mazda-exclusive technology that uses the engine to put a minute amount of weight on the front tires, making steering inputs more surefooted.

Mazda3 Touring equipment includes a new dark silver alloy wheel color, standard illuminated vanity mirrors and an overhead sunglasses holder. Available as part of the new BOSE®/Moonroof/Satellite package for Mazda3 Touring models are a nine-speaker premium audio system, SiriusXM satellite radio with a four-month subscription and a one-touch-open moonroof.
