The Japanese carmaker says the new Mazda3 incorporates exactly the features the market needs if taking into account the global economic crisis, with engineers and designers especially focused on fuel-efficiency, safety and environment protection. “The all-new MAZDA3 is everything a driver could ask for in a compact sedan,” Mazda said in a statement released to the press.
Other feature highlights include self-leveling Bi-Xenon headlights with Adaptive Front Lightning System, Mazda's advanced keyless entry and push-button start, class-leading aerodynamics (0.29 coefficient of drag) plus a bunch of high-end interior parts such as power driver seat with memory, Mazda's Multi-Information Display and 10 speaker BOSE Centerpoint surround-sound audio system.
There's no word on the price of the upgraded model but Mazda expects to record at least as many sales as with the previous models which, according to the Japanese company, sold pretty well on most markets.
“Since its launch in 2003, the current MAZDA3 has sold nearly 1.8 million vehicles in over 100 countries and has won more than 90 global motoring awards to date. The MAZDA3 accounts for almost one in three Mazdas sold,” it said.
