A PERFECT FIT

The cockpit of the Mazda3 is in perfect symmetry with you. For decades, we’ve studied the human body: how it moves, sensations of touch, sound and sight, muscle and skeletal structure. Every consideration has been made so the Mazda3 feels as if it were built just for you. Effortlessly responding to your direction.

EXTERIOR DESIGN

BEAUTY THROUGH SUBTRACTION

Contours that capture movement, even at a standstill. Simplified essential characteristics that embrace the Japanese philosophy of “less is more.” This is the compelling evolution in our design aesthetic. Reflections of light across its surface create more complex and intriguing shapes. Poised and dignified, it beckons to be driven.

KODO: “SOUL OF MOTION”

Our obsession to create beautiful vehicles is expressed through the next evolution of our design language called Kodo: “Soul of Motion.” The Speed Form featured is a sculptural exploration done by the designers at Mazda to realize this vision. Created by the hands of master artisans, the piece conveys energy by eliminating all that is unnecessary, leaving only what is essential––becoming the inspiration for its final design
stage: the Mazda3.

Its 186-hp Skyactiv®-G engine offers responsive acceleration, while Skyactiv-Vehicle Dynamics with G-Vectoring Control Plus subtly adjusts power delivery and braking for a smoother feeling around corners. When combined with the available i-Activ AWD®, this effect is even more pronounced, resulting in a more stable, premium-feeling drive.

This design carefully considers both human and cabin design characteristics. From woofers mounted in the front side panels to the positioning of high-range speakers, engineers studied every detail of how sound interacts with its environment. And achieved an auditory experience unlike anything ever felt in a Mazda.
