Debuting in 2003, the Mazda 3 has been the brand’s best-selling vehicle in the world with over six million units sold. The 2019 Mazda 3 made its world premiere at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show and was immediately met by widespread appeal. In addition to being the first production model adopting a matured Kodo design language that attempts to embody the essence of Japanese aesthetics, Mazda 3 is leading the way for a bold new era for the brand.
Mazda is a fan-focused brand, on a journey to connect with its customers and become an essential part of their lives. By listening to its customers, Mazda is motivated to provide more premium features that will continue to help guide the elevation of the brand and its vehicles. Mazda vehicles, through the Jinba-Ittai driving philosophy, are known for providing the driver with a feeling of oneness with the car, as if it’s an extension of their body. The goal is to create premium driving experiences that enrich customers’ lives and deliver uplifting feelings.
The 2019 Mazda 3 sets a new milestone as the first production model to lead Mazda into a bold new era. Blending beautiful design and exhilarating driving dynamics, the Mazda 3 was developed to inspire and create an emotional bond with its customers in two very distinct ways. A completely new design approach was taken when styling the sedan and hatchback, each embodying strikingly different personalities.
