The battle for this year’s top outright seller has already begun. After a lot of expensive media hype, the new Mazda3 is now in the showrooms taking the fight right up to the main rival – the Toyota Corolla. The new Mazda3 is claimed to be the most stylish and advanced Mazda3 ever, and boasts excellent equipment at the right price. With the momentum built up over the past 5 years the all-new car is sure to give the dominant Toyota a real fight for the number one slot.

New Mazda 3

Completely new from the ground up the new Mazda3 brings a host of advances including dramatic fuel efficiency improvements, greater refinement, increased performance and state-of-the-art connectivity. Offered in sedan or hatch, it comes with a 2 litre petrol or 2.5 litre petrol engine and with the choice of two transmission types: the 6 speed automatic and 6 speed manual.

Boasting its best-ever fuel consumption numbers, the 2.0 litre petrol engine with automatic transmission sips as little as 5.7 litres per 100 kilometres, while the more powerful 2.5 litre petrol engine with automatic transmission uses 6.0 Litres per 100 kilometres – an improvement of 30 per cent compared to the equivalent outgoing engines

In a number of Mazda firsts, it introduces a head-up Active Driving Display and a next generation HMI commander control that offers safe access to navigation, communications and infotainment, including social media such as Stitcher™, Aha™ and Pandora®, through Mazda’s new MZD Connect connectivity system.

The cars are available in eight striking colours including Titanium Flash and Deep Crystal, Soul Red and Reflex Blue. And it comes in six grades, including Neo, Maxx, Touring, SP25, SP25 GT and SP25 Astina, with prices starting at $20,490.

First word from the trade in the couple of weeks the car has been shown to the public in the showrooms is all good. Potential buyers are impressed at the way Mazda fit even their basic models with a decent range of standard equipment.
