SKYACTIV Technology for an exhilarating driving experience

The beauty of the Mazda3 is matched by its dynamic driving performance. The Mazda3 provides a driving experience that exceeds even the highest of expectations. Mazda cars are known for providing an exhilarating and dynamic driving performance. That’s because we put driving fun first. It’s just one of the many ways we defy convention. With outstanding fuel consumption and low CO 2 emissions, the SKYACTIV-G petrol engines and the SKYACTIV-D diesel engine help make the all-new Mazda3 a responsive, fun and environmentally friendly vehicle that performs as brilliantly as it looks.

SKYACTIV Body, Engines and Transmissions

The new SKYACTIV-Body structure enhances the car's driving performance giving you a better driving experience. We've used ultra-high tensile steel reinforcements to improve the rigidity of the body structure by around 30%. The combination of the increased rigidity and lighter weight, improves the car’s dynamic driving performance and giving you a safer driving experience. The newly developed 105ps SKYACTIV-G petrol engine is light and compact, providing significantly better fuel efficiency than previous small capacity engines. The 120ps and 165ps SKYACTIV-G petrol engines are both refined, direct-injection engines, providing a combination of outstanding performance and great fuel economy. The 150ps SKYACTIV-D provides fast acceleration that defies conventional diesel engines, offering outstanding fuel economy and performance.

Leading car safety features, superb safety performance

An outstanding safety performance is achieved with advanced car safety features that include our Smart City Brake Support. Standard across the range, Smart City Brake Support takes the stress out of city driving.

It is designed to help avoid or minimise the effects of low-speed collisions. The laser-based system continually monitors the gap and closing speed to the vehicle in front, and applies the brakes if it detects a collision is likely.

(Operates at speeds up to approximately 20mph).

Outstanding fuel economy, superior environmental performance

This efficient car combines an exhilarating driving experience and exceptional fuel economy, with low CO2 emissions from just 107g/km. This outstanding environmental performance is achieved with our pioneering technologies including i-ELOOP*, i-stop and our advanced SKYACTIV Technology.

Another contributor to the impressive fuel efficiency is the car’s leading aerodynamic performance. This is aided by the active air-shutter* in front of the radiator, which opens and closes automatically with driving conditions, reducing the car’s drag and improving the environmental performance. This new-to-Mazda feature contributes to the stable and stress-free driving experience you’ll enjoy

*i-ELOOP and Active Air Shutter are fitted to 165ps Sport Nav models only.

i-stop technology

i-stop improves your car’s environmental performance by switching off your engine when you’re idling in traffic. You’ll hardly notice this happen because i-stop restarts your engine more quickly and smoothly than most stop-start systems. So your engine’s ready to go as soon as you want it. i-stop is standard across the all-new Mazda3 range.

The winner of several technology awards, this is the world’s only start-stop system that uses combustion energy to restart. Just one more way that we defy convention.
