The 2021 Mazda3 is All-New


Mazda has redesigned its popular compact model for 2021, 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 2021 Mazda3 might just be the right car for you.

Performance Features

The Mazda3 has a Skyactiv-G turbo engine. This engine can deliver 250 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque. This vehicle also includes all-wheel drive and G-Vectoring control. The all-wheel drive allows for better control in all weather conditions and terrains in Lakewood Ranch. If you are in an area with constantly changing weather conditions, or you like to go off-roading on different terrains, then the all-wheel-drive optimizes your vehicle control.

The G-Vectoring control also improves the control of the vehicle by responding to steering inputs. The steering inputs provide data to the vehicle, and that data helps the car add subtle engine torque and adjustments to the braking system.

Also, the Skyactiv technology provides great handling and comfort when driving the Mazda3. This engine technology also helps in optimizing fuel efficiency. The Mazda3 gets up to 28 miles per gallon in the city and 36 miles per gallon on the highway. This technology provides a great fuel economy without sacrificing anything involving performance.

Interior Features

The interior of the Mazda3 comes in two color options, which are greige and black leather. The level of detail included in the interior design of this vehicle helps create a visually pleasing and comfortable driving experience. The Mazda3 interior also considers how the human body moves and reacts to different sensations. The cockpit was designed with perfect symmetry to allow for extra comfort on your travels around Bradenton.

Safety Features

The Mazda3 is one of the few vehicles that offers extensive safety systems for drivers in Venice, FL. The safety features included in this vehicle are traffic jam assist, front and rear parking sensors, 360-degree view monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, and smart brake support-rear crossing. The rear parking sensors, 360-degree view monitor, and rear cross-traffic alert help identify things that may not be in your line of sight.

This can help you avoid collisions that may have occurred without these features. Also, the smart brake support-rear crossing does more than just identify objects. If an object is identified and the driver is slow to apply the brakes, the vehicle will brake to help you avoid any possible collision.

The other safety features, such as adaptive cruise control and traffic jam assist, allow for a smoother driving experience in Venice, FL. Many accidents are caused by constantly changing speeds and having to start and stop while driving. The constant changes can cause accidents for drivers that are not on high alert. These features make these constant changes so much easier.

The traffic jam assist identifies traffic and maneuvers through the jam for you. It will accelerate and brake accordingly to the traffic you are in without the driving needing to do anything. Also, the adaptive cruise control is great for the highway. Rather than have to change the speed your cruise control is set to constantly, the adaptive cruise control judges speed based on distance. This feature will always maintain a safe distance between you and the car in front of you while maintaining consistent speeds.

Technology Features

The technology included in this vehicle includes Wi-Fi, remote engine start, and a Bose sound system. These features will not improve the safety or performance of your vehicle, but they are luxury items that can make your life in North Port much easier. These items will optimize the driving experience for you as the driver and the passengers in the car.

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.
