Mazda 3 Owner's Manuals
The Mazda 3 has always been a competent family hatchback, it has struggled to stand up to the impressive “monsters” of the auto industry, the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf.
Nevertheless, the Mazda 3 2022 has a new look, modern engines and technology designed to distract you from premium hatchbacks like the BMW 1 Series, Audi A3 and Mercedes A-Class.
The car certainly looks like it’s doing a great job – at the front its sharp lines and dark grille make a great impression, while at the back its spoiler and prominent LED lights even look a bit aggressive.
Once you’ve climbed inside, the Mazda 3’s interior will quickly help you forget about any possible shortcomings. The interior is filled with soft-touch materials, chrome trim and rugged switches, which together win over the Focus ‘insides’ and easily rival the Golf for sheer plushness, if not quite the Audi A3.
Not only that, you also get a fantastic infotainment system. Every Mazda 3 is equipped with an 8-inch colour screen, which can be controlled via the rotary controller and quick menu buttons between the front seats or by voice. It also comes standard with built-in satellite navigation, Bluetooth, DAB radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and an 8-speaker audio system. Overall, it’s a really simple system to navigate, and using the rotary dial and shortcut buttons is a breeze while driving.
