The two most important factors to consider when buying any car. But what is it about the Mazda 3 that makes it so special?
One of the safest cars in its class
Driver and passenger safety is always at the forefront of Mazda's mind when it comes to designing a new car. Mazda's entire range is now equipped with revolutionary i-ACTIVSENSE safety technology, and the new Mazda 3 is no exception.
“The updated i-ACTIVSENSE safety technology inclusions make Mazda3 one of the safest cars in its class, while the enhanced drive and handling characteristics – something that Mazda is renowned for – are sure to impress all that drive it.”
Alastair Doak - Mazda Australia marketing director
Few other small cars at this level have such a remarkable list of safety features compared to the new Mazda 3. Although you currently need to go with the top level variants for the fully encompassing safety suite, many of these additions will likely trickle down into the lower grades in the Mazda 3 range in time. Currently, all Mazda 3 models now include 'Smart City Brake Support' (SCBS), Mazda's low-speed forward autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system that comes equipped with pedestrian protection and operates between 4-80km/h. Stability control, anti-lock brakes to prevent wheel lock up and consequent sliding, and traction control to optimise grip and stability also now come as standard across all grades. Higher level grades also offer additional safety features including a reversing camera, Blind-Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, SCBS-Reverse, Driver Attention Alert, Traffic Sign Recognition , Forward Obstruction Warning, Lane-Departure Warning, Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC) and Adaptive LED headlights.
An enjoyable driving experience
If you're after a sporty and responsive driving feel for a seamless driving experience, then the new Mazda 3 is the one for you. Perfectly balanced with firm, accurate steering and excellent cornering (in sport mode it will pick a lower gear under brakes to really step up its cornering prowess) the Mazda 3 continues to be one of the most enjoyable small cars to drive. Weave round tight corners and dance along winding roads with ease thanks to the addition of Mazda's G Vectoring Technology which allows the Mazda 3 to harness all of its available power for a confident drive with advanced stability control.
