2015 Mazda3 Sport: Efficiently sporty

2015 Mazda3 Sport: Efficiently sporty

The look alone of the brand new 2015 Mazda3 Sport is enough to make you take a second look and never want to stop starring. Add to the stellar new looks a boatload of features, fuel efficiency, and enough space to ensure even the longest road trip from the Hopewell Rocks all the way to PEI via the Confederation Bridge.

 

Really, what’s not to love about this hot little hatchback? The 2015 Mazda3 is so loaded with content you might think you’re sitting in a much more expensive vehicle. And that’s the beauty of the Mazda3 Sport: it’s a compact, highly affordable vehicle that features all the creature comforts and amenities you’d ever want. Equipped with Mazda’s latest HMI system that features a 7” colour touchscreen and knob to control it all with ease, the Mazda3 Sport is a mobile music machine, as well as navigator and communication’s device. Oh, and it’s a blast to drive too.

 

Take to Cabot Trail behind the wheel of your 2015 Mazda3 Sport and you’ll absolutely fall in love with either the 2.0L 4-cylinder (155 horsepower/150 lb-ft of torque) or the 2.5L 4-cylinder (184 horsepower/185 lb-ft of torque), as both are equally versatile and efficient.

 

For the 2.0L you’ll average 8.0L/100km in the city and a fabulous 5.9L/100km on the highway (with the SKYACTIV-Drive 6-speed automatic). Opt for the 2.5L and those numbers change every so slightly to 9.2L/100km in the city and 6.6L/100km on the highway (again with the automatic). Either way, you’ll be getting a nifty little hatchback with plenty of get-up-and-go that’ll save you dollars at the pumps as well.

 

Featuring front-wheel drive only, the 2015 Mazda3 Sport is also available with a SKYACTIV 6-speed manual transmission or a SKYACTIV-Drive 6-speed automatic with i-ELOOP.

 

When you do decide to make the trip down the coast in your 2015 Mazda3 Sport, worry not as there is plenty of interior space, as well. With the rear seats up, you’ll find 520 litres of cargo volume. However, if it’s just a duo of travellers, fold those rear seats down and you’re met with a whopping 1,334 litres to cram with all your goodies and gear. Road-trip king? Yeah, the 2015 Mazda3 Sport just might be that.

 

There’s plenty more to discover about the brand new 2015 Mazda3 Sport, so you’ll want to head down to Atlantic Mazda to speak to one of our experts about the versatile and efficient little hatchback. Oh, and make sure you book a test drive, too.
