The Mazda3 (also known as Mazda Axela for its first 3 generation) is Japanese auto stalwart Mazda Philippines’ entry into the competitive compact sedan segment that boasts of its style, performance, and Japanese developed technology. It is the first vehicle on the Mazda lineup to adapt the latest update of the brand’s signature Kodo design theme which helped the model win the 2020 Car Design of the Year.

The minimalist and cohesive aesthetic gives the nameplate a more premium look.  New on the latest generation is the SkyActive Technology that the Japanese brand developed, providing fuel efficiency and better drive performance that support the engine’s G-Vectoring Control Plus feature. On top of these are a slew of infotainment and hands-free features for added convenience.

Launch

For 2021, Mazda Philipines updated the Mazda 3 sedan and gave it more in the way of on-board tech. There are also two variants for the new Mazda 3, namely, the 3 M Hybrid 2.0 AT, and the 3 Sport 2.0 AT. As the name implies, the M Hybrid is powered by a 2.0-liter SkyActiv-G 2.0 engine combined with an integrated starter generator.

Exterior

Compared to its previous generation’s design, the facelifted Mazda3 follows a more minimalist aesthetic. True to the Kodo design language, the sedan comes with more curves and rounded edges than stiff angles. Accompanying the mesh-designed grille in front are sleek LED headlamps and daytime running lamps as standard. The top range variant steps it up a notch with high beam controls that are said to eliminate the need for fog lamps.
