The much anticipated new generation of the Mazda3 has finally been in launched in South Africa.

The new Mazda3 is a combination of beautiful designs and exhilarating performance. It adopts a matured KODO design language that embodies the essence of Japanese aesthetics. Despite sharing the Mazda3 name, the hatch and sedan models have distinct personalities – the design of the hatch is dynamic, while the sedan elegant.

Mazda has made some changes in the interior as well. The vehicle’s uncluttered cockpit has controls and switches with a consistent and unified feel that provide the driver with intuitive operation of the cabin.

The center console has been redesigned with the shift knob, new commander control and armrest moved forward, while the cupholders are repositioned to the front.

The new Mazda3 offers two interior colour options. First is the recognized black interior colour that emanates strength and sophistication. Then, exclusive to the Mazda3 hatch, is the new optional burgundy red leather seat trim, which offers a deep, vivid appearance that heightens the emotion of the exterior design.
