The new Mazda in March 2016 also see a transformation of both outside and inside. That will come with improvements to the engine and the characteristics of modern technology.
Exterior and Interior
What is the 2016 Mazda 3 is the same configuration of body and style went to last year. They are not as big noise when the standard equipment offered, as well as the vehicle comes with a fairly standard setup seen in previous years, with folding power side mirrors and steel 16-inch wheels. But to compensate, it optional features are as long as a river. Some of the offers are updated alloy 18-inch wheels and HID adaptive headlamps. This makes the 2016 Mazda 3 a little more interesting to watch, but only to their highest settings the base is nothing spectacular to offer. 2016 Mazda 3 also does not change much in appearance. As a general improvement supposed to happen with the next model, it is still preserved in the quiet and does not come with many improvements. The Kodo treatment that appeared in the visual appearance of the first 2016 Mazda 3 is always present and will be with us for at least a year. Both hatch and sedan are coated chrome trapezoidal grille at the front. The car gets a few rounded edges on the sides that make the car look a little closer than it actually is, but this is only a visual level and size are the same as before. The fascia X style is due to narrow headlights that are placed above the lover of the grid all decorated in a limousine style to combine the best possible look. The bell is a bit long, which also means that the pillars of the windshield and move back a little and rear axles. Next door may notice some sportiness to the car, incorporating a lower fold which gives a Raked posture. The sporty character is also enhanced with the shoulder line designed differently and fastback roofline. The back adds some oval and horizontal forms also provide a visual extension of the car.
Inside 2016 Mazda 3 does the same job with standard features and abroad. In basic configuration that are power door locks, according to a key top / down driver’s side window, climate control includes A / C with pollen filter and an adjustable steering wheel. Maybe in the standard options, you are more impressive than the outside, but still nothing impressive head screaming. But saving the backup camera, which is now standard, is a good start to change this premise and adaptive speed control radar is the impressive number of features, but the general feeling that can come with more as a standard option. The infotainment system is supported by the Mazda Connect system using the 7-inch color touch screen mounted in the center console. The interior design is a really good thing for 2016 Mazda 3, as it comes with a sleeker look that should not of a compact vehicle. There are some plastic scattered here and there, but not what better untactful for a picture. Red stitching is good additions you see, not only in the tapestries, but the steering wheel and door panels as well. There is a brushed metal finish that looks at the shift knob, door handle, vents and dashboard, and combined with a glossy black as support. The seats offer decent side support and combined with upholstery in fabric and leather to give the greatest amount of comfort. Heated seats are included as an option.
