A new era continues with the arrival of the All-new Mazda 3 Saloon
Following on from the highly-successful launch of the All-new Mazda3 Hatchback in May, Mazda is introducing the second car to the new generation line up in the form of the All-new Mazda3 Saloon. The engine line-up for this striking car is strong and dignified, with a dynamic and enjoyable performance. The saloon engines range both petrol and diesel engine options. For those looking for a petrol engine, Mazda's revolutionary 2.0 SKYACTIV-X 180ps engine is available across the range in both manual and automatic. And for diesel, a manual and automatic option is available in the Sport Lux and GT Sport trim levels with the 1.8D SKYACTIV-D 116ps diesel engine.
In terms of design, the All-new Mazda 3 Saloon emboides Mazda's evolved award-winning KODO - Soul of Motion design philosophy. It's sleek lines and curves capture and play with the light, creating a feeling of movement, even when the car is stationary.
Beyond the eye-catching exterior, every element of the interior has been designed around the driver, a human-centric philposohy that helps you stay connected to the car and keep your attention on driving. The new 8.8-inch centre display is positioned further back in the dashboard, angled towards the driver, to reduce the time you need to take your eyes off the road. Mazda has also gotten rid of any touchscreen functionality. Instead, the infotainment system is controlled through their intuative multimedia commander in the centre console. And to keep you connected while you're on the move, the All-new Mazda 3 Saloon includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard. And if you'd rather not use those, the Mazda-connect system has been completely updated to be faster, more intuative and easier to use.
As you would expect from Mazda, the All-new Mazda 3 Saloon comes packed with great features and state-of-the-art in-car technology as standard from the entry level Sport all the way to the top-trim GT Sport Tech. Features as standard across the range include 16" Silver alloy wheels, premium Black cloth interior, Driver Attention Alert, Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Control Traffic Alert, Mazda Radar Cruise Control, Traffic Sign Recognition, Intelligent Speed Assist, front Smart City Brake Support, Hill Hold Assist, frameless auto-dimming rear-view mirror, air conditioning, windscreen-projected Active Driving Display (head-up display), rear parking sensors and keyless entry.
