Incremental year-on-year adjustments on cars do not generally change things in bulk, but buyers will certainly appreciate the changes that Mazda has made to the Mazda3 for the 2018 model year.
For the 2018 Mazda 3 Sedan has added new standard equipment throughout the range, improving what is already one of our favorites in the category. New for 2018, all cars are standard with automatic emergency braking. The Sport is also equipped with a 7.0-inch entertainment screen, push-button start, Bluetooth phone, and sound and fabric. A preferred equipment kit available purchases hidden-spot surveillance and cross-border rear alert plus 16-inch alloy wheels (standard for tailgate), chrome satin interior trim and heated rearview mirrors with signaling.
The cabin features heated leatherette front seats as well as blind zone monitoring, cross-border rear warning, rain sensor wiper, automatic headlights, automatic climate control Two zones, a new color wheel black alloy silver and a leather steering wheel and gear change button.
The Mazda3 2018 offers two choices of engines, both with a Skyactiv pedigree. The Sport uses a 2.0-liter line-4 that makes a healthy 155 horsepower. The 2.5 liters found in the Touring and the leading Grand Touring variants, lack 184 horsepower. While the 2.0 liter is a capable interpreter, it translates some enthusiasm for better fuel economy: 37 mpg highway and 28 mpg city with 6-speed automatic transmission, which costs $ 1,050. The 2.5 liters will not extend a gasoline strip as far, but it is close and above all improves the sporting character of the car. Both engines are smooth, perennial and they love rev. Manual transmission enthusiasts will appreciate that Mazda offers an excellent 6-speed manual in both body styles and with both engines. All Mazda3 models are front wheels.
The 2018 Mazda 3 Sedan has a suggested retail price starting just under $ 19,000, while the Mazda3 Sport hatchback starts just over $ 20,000
