Cardinalwway Mazda A Las Vegas Mazda Dealer - 2018 Mazda3 For Sale
The 2018 Mazda3 is a compact car that’s available as a sedan or a hatchback. While the compact segment is crowded with unremarkable vehicles, the Mazda3 shines, thanks to its beautiful exterior styling, outstanding driving dynamics and economical price tag. At dealerships like Mazda Las Vegas, buyers are excited by the Mazda3’s sporty handling, excellent fuel economy and exceptional safety ratings.
The Mazda3 seats five and comes in three trim levels, listed as Sport, Touring and Grand Touring. The Sport and Touring models are equipped with a 2.0-liter inline-4 engine that produces 155 horsepower and 150 lb.-ft. of torque, matched to a standard six-speed manual gearbox or an optional six-speed automatic transmission. The Grand Touring is powered by a 2.5-liter inline-4 that develops 184 hp and 185 lb.-ft. The transmission choices are the same as the 2.0-liter engine.
The automotive press is enthusiastic about all Mazda vehicles, and the 2018 Mazda3 is no exception. Motor Trend wrote: “… the Mazda3’s chassis continues to be its defining feature, giving it its sporty driving dynamics. The 184-hp 2.5-liter I-4 provides plenty of power on tap even for climbing up hills and steep grades. The six-speed automatic is responsive and holds gears in manual mode, making it more enthusiast-friendly.”
On the outside, you’re sure to enjoy the Mazda3’s beautiful styling. The 2018 Mazda3 makes a definite statement with its bold grille, athletic proportions, and the right mix of graceful curves and sharp lines. The overall look is similar to the Mazda6. If you never thought a hatchback could look stunning, the Mazda3 will change your mind. Buyers can choose the available Appearance Package, which gets a black front spoiler, rear diffuser, mirrors and side sills.
The interior of the 2018 Mazda3 is attractive and sophisticated. Kelley Blue Book called the Mazda3’s interior one of the best in its class. The cabin is inviting and luxurious, with the look and feel of an interior you might find in a vehicle that costs a lot more. The dash features a 7-inch display that reminds us of a tablet, although it’s not a touchscreen. A user-friendly rotary knob controls the Mazda3’s audio, phone, navigation and app functions, similar to the setup you’d find in a luxury vehicle. The seats are comfortable, and all trim levels come with 60/40-split-folding rear seat.
Standard features on the base Sport trim include push-button start, an electronic parking brake, a rearview camera, cruise control, Mazda Connect with a 7-inch display, a stereo system with six speakers, a USB input and Bluetooth. The Sport also comes with Smart City Brake Support, which will automatically apply the brakes if the system detects an emergency situation while the vehicle is traveling under 19 mph. The Touring trim adds 18-inch wheels, heated front seats, a power driver’s seat, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and climate control with dual zones. Those who opt for the top-line Grand Touring trim level get perforated leather upholstery, a head-up display, a power sunroof and a premium Bose audio system.
