2014 Mazda3 has starting price of £16,695 on-the-road in the UK

Article by Anita Panait, on September 16, 2013

The new-generation Mazda3 that features SKYACTIV technologies will be available in the United Kingdom starting in January 2014. Mazda unveiled the new Mazda3 for the European public at the ongoing Frankfurt Motor Show. The all-new Mazda3 – available in either hatchback or fastback -- will have a starting price of £16,695 (on-the-road) for the 1.5-litre SKYACTIV-G petrol 100ps SE hatchback and a ceiling tag of £23,345 for the diesel 2.2-liter 150ps Sport Nav Auto hatchback.

Diesel variants of the Mazda3 will have a starting price of £19,245 for the 2.2-liter 150ps SKYACTIV-D SE (both body styles). The 36-strong all-new Mazda3 range includes 21 hatchbacks (with eight diesel models) and 15 fastbacks, (with five diesel models).  Customers could opt for any of the five equipment levels -- SE, SE Nav, SE-L, SE-L Nav and Sport Nav. Prices for SE models start at £16,695; SE-L versions at £18,495; and Sport Nav variants at £19,895.

Peter Allibon, Sales Director, Mazda UK remarked that while the all-new Mazda3 merges the SKYACTIV technology and the ‘KODO – Soul of Motion’ design theme, it also raises their “traditionally generous equipment levels” to a new high, outperforming several established C-segment offerings in terms of “innovation, specification and price.” The all-new Mazda3 will feature Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) that helps to reduce or prevent low-speed collisions by automatically applying the brakes if the driver fails to act.

It will also feature the Hill Hold Assist (HHA) that prevents roll back. It will likewise introduce new internet connectivity through ‘Aha’ and ‘Stitcher’ app integration. Offered as standard for the Mazda3 SE model are 16-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, power-folding heated mirrors, leather steering wheel and trip computer.

Also fitted as standard are a radio/CD with six speaker audio system, 7-inch TFT colour touch screen, USB/iPod connectivity and Bluetooth hands-free system. The Mazda3 SE-L adds Bi-Xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights and rear lights and dual-zone climate control air conditioning. Also added are front fog lamps, rain and dusk sensing automatic wipers and lights, heated front seats and rear parking sensors.

A glimpse at the new Mazda 3 is what is all needed to liven up an onlooker’s spirit and capture his or her attention. At a closer look, the Mazda 3 further spikes one’s interest until such time that the man and the machine make a connection.

This strong level of attraction is caused by the so-called "KODO - Soul of Motion" design language, which takes inspiration from the beauty and power of nature. This design language was especially developed by Mazda to take its sense of vitality and agility to a higher level, allowing the carmaker to create a new generation of cars that is uncompromising.

At any angle, the new Mazda 3 nevertheless marks a rebirth of sorts. Mazda’s latest creation marks an evolution of the KODO design language to another dimension, one that truly expresses dynamic motion with its C-segment proportions. Just like previous KODO models, the new Mazda 3 boasts a confident stance as boosted by its rear-leaning cabin. It is also lower and wider than its predecessor.

The Mazda 3 features a raked profile that rises significantly towards the rear, as made more prominent by its flared fenders and large sporty aluminum wheels.
