Because it’s a car designed with Mazda’s ‘KODO – Soul of Motion’ design theme, the body styling expresses dynamic motion in every detail – from the frame up. The sculpted forms of the Mazda3 Hatchback create an impression of powerful, forward movement. The strong, wide stance gives a clue to the exciting driving performance and manoeuvrability. With its KODO design, this car exterior conveys an energetic tension and a sense of rhythmic motion that appeal to drivers from first glance.
The Mazda3 Hatchback gives a driving experience that exceeds even the expectations this sporty design creates. Mazda’s cars are known for providing an exhilarating and dynamic driving performance. That’s because Mazda put fun driving first. It’s just one of the many ways that Mazda defy convention. This unconventional approach to designing and building cars continues here, with a car that’s inspired by the Japanese notion of Jinba Ittai – ‘horse and rider as one’. This creates a special bond between car and driver that contributes to giving this sport hatchback such an exhilarating driving experience, with exciting and responsive road handling.
The Mazda3 contains an array of intelligent safety features that are designed to help you relax and enjoy the drive. The active and passive safety systems warn you of impending dangers, mitigating damages, delivering a peaceful journey. All safety technology in the Mazda3 has been designed to provide generous levels of security and protection, without reducing or taking away the enjoyment of driving. Mazda create class-leading car safety features like multiple airbags (front, side and curtain), Dynamic Stability Control, Anti-lock Brakes, Traction Control and Emergency Brake-force Distribution which are all standard on the Mazda3. There is also an Emergency Stop Signalling System that switches on your hazard lights if you suddenly brake hard. (Then it turns them off again afterwards.) So all these active and passive car safety features mean you can relax and enjoy your drive without worrying about the safety of your passengers.
