The 2020 Mazda3 is All-New


Mazda has redesigned its popular compact model for 2020, doubling down on the attributes that made it a hit among auto enthusiasts near Sarasota and Lakewood Ranch in the first place. The new Mazda3 keeps its signature of usability and driving dynamics while adding updated technology and improved packaging overall. If you're looking for a practical daily vehicle that preserves the joy of driving, then the 2020 Mazda3 might just be the right car for you.

Two Available Body Styles, Same Attractive Design

Like the previous generation, the 2020 Mazda3 is available in two body styles. Each style has its advantages, but both offer the dynamic looks and personality that Mazda is known for.

On one hand, the Mazda3 sedan uses tasteful proportions to create a look that rivals any compact sedan on the market. It's sleek profile and spacious interior make a compelling case to any discerning driver.

On the other hand, the Mazda3 Hatchback embraces utility with its rear liftback and easy-access cargo area.

Premium Interior

In the truest sense, less is truly more with the 2020 Mazda3. The new Mazda3 bucks industry trends when it comes to cabin design. Rather than cramming open space with busy elements, the compact model opts for simplicity and clean lines. A simple three-spoke steering wheel is ergonomically sound, along with audio and media controls situated on the dashboard. The dashboard itself is clean and uncluttered. Soft-touch trim materials throughout the cabin are available in multiple colorways.

Engaging Performance

Driving enjoyment is the cornerstone of the new Mazda3 model. Its chassis is designed to be both taught and forgiving, striking an impressive balance between precise handling and passenger comfort. A standard 2.5-liter SKYACTIV engine produces a healthy 186 horsepower while yielding up to 35 mpg highway. The Mazda3 is even available with i-ACTIVE all-wheel drive. The system can adjust power delivery to account for a wide variety of variables that contribute to traction loss. The result is an all-wheel drive system that can react nearly instantly to weather and road conditions.

Intuitive Technology

The new Mazda3 benefits from a standard infotainment system called Mazda Connect. An HD color display sits on the dashboard, with a control dial in the center console offering easy interactions with all sorts of functions. The system is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and available Android Auto.

The i-Activesense safety technology packages is available as well. Models with this technology suite get a range of driver-assist features.

  • Blind Spot Monitoring
  •  
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  •  
  • Mazda Radar Cruise Control
  •

Stunning and Sprightly, the 2020 Mazda3 Is a Top Compact Sedan Regardless of Trim Level

These days, it's hard for most compact sedans to measure up to what the new 2020 Mazda3 offers to drivers throughout the Sarasota, FL area. With the sporty handling, refined engine, and a generous collection of tech features, the new Mazda3 is at the top of its class. The new 2020 Mazda3 demonstrates its remarkable attributes in a base-level trim, as well as three packages that maximize its value.

Base Model

Under the hood of the Mazda3 is a 2.5L four-cylinder engine that produces 186 horsepower and 186 lb.-ft. of torque and is paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The cabin welcomes you cloth-trimmed sports-style seating with the rear 60/40 split-folding seats if you want more cargo room. For comfort and convenience, Mazda includes features such as cruise control, remote keyless entry, and a 7-inch screen for digital instrumentation. Infotainment is provided by MAZDA CONNECT™ Infotainment System, which offers you an eight-speaker stereo system with AM/FM radio, Bluetooth® wireless connectivity, HD Radio™, hands-free text messaging ability, voice command technology, two USB ports, and an 8.8-inch center display.

In the event of a crash, the new Mazda3 gets an eight-airbag system which includes two frontal impact airbags, knee airbags for the driver and front passenger, two front seat-mounted side impact airbags, and two roof-mounted side curtain airbags! Accompanying those airbags is an automatic emergency notification system useful in the aftermath of an accident.

Mazda3 drivers will also love the inclusion of standard driver assist technology. Features include lane departure warning, lane keep assist, radar cruise control with stop-and-go technology, high beam control, and driver attention warning. An anti-lock braking system on the four-wheel disc brakes—complete with brake assist and electronic brake-force distribution—provide effective and safe stopping power. Dynamic stability and traction control systems combine to keep the vehicle balanced and planted on the driving surface. A rearview camera helps you monitor what or who is behind you when backing out. LED daytime running lights make pedestrians and other motorists aware of your presence and light up the road ahead much more.

Select Package

The Select Package is the first step up and is where you can elect to choose an all-wheel-drive system. Leatherette replaces the cloth seat trim, and dual-zone automatic climate control ensures that your front-seat passenger can set his or her own HVAC preferences. Remote keyless entry is enhanced with a keyless entry and start system, which includes push-button engine start. Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ are added for smartphone-based control of your infotainment functions. Add in blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert to enhance side and rear awareness on Sarasota, FL roads.

Preferred Package

At the Preferred Package level, leather replaces the urethane wrapping on the steering wheel for a more premium touch. The front seats are also now heated and the driver’s seat is boosted with eight-way power adjustability, power lumbar support, and 2-position memory. Entertainment-wise, the new 2020 Mazda3 improves in leaps and bounds with a 12-speaker Bose® Premium Audio System, which includes aluminum speaker grilles.

Premium Package

The Premium Package level is where the new Mazda3 is upgraded from leatherette to leather seat trim, and paddle shifters are added on the steering wheel for enhanced gear-shifting convenience. To reduce distraction when driving, Mazda adds a full-color Active Driving Display projected on the windshield with vital vehicle information and the Adaptive Front-Lighting System.
