The Mazda3 has arrived in Ireland and is available now from €26,295. It’s available in two body-types, Hatchback and Saloon, with the latter arriving in June.
At launch there are two engines available for the Mazda3: the 2.0 Petrol Skyactiv-G and the 1.8 Diesel Skyactiv-D.
An innovative new 2.0 Petrol Skyactiv-X will be added to the range later this year.
Mild hybrid technology and cylinder-deactivation are standard on the 2.0 petrol engine to boost fuel economy.
Commenting on the new launch, John Perry, Managing Director of Mazda Ireland said, “These truly are exciting times for the brand. Reactions to All-New Mazda3 from first customer test drives and press reviews have been phenomenal. Mazda3 has always been a successful model for the brand but this next-generation Mazda3 has further raised the bar within an already competitive segment. By focusing on driving pleasure and creating a bond between car and driver, Mazda don’t just engineer cars to deliver high levels of quality and safety but to the enjoyment and emotional feeling experienced behind the wheel.”
