Currently on its fourth generation, the Mazda3 is still a staple in the busy roads of the metro as one of the top choices among city drivers. The model is 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.


The latest generation Mazda 3 sedan was first unveiled at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. It made its way to the Philippines in August 2019 together with its Sportback counterpart. It comes in two variants which are the base Elite and the top-of-the-line Premium variants. The Elite variant is priced at P1,295,000, while the Premium variant is retailed at P1,495,000.

There's no denying that the Mazda 3 is one very attractive looking sedan


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.

The Elite variant comes with seats wrapped in fabric, while the Premium variant dons perforated leather-trimmed sport seats.
