Arrives the Mazda3 2017, a slight facelift for the compact japanese. In fact, it has been presented as the Mazda Axela, the name given to this model in Japan. Of time will be available only in that country, although it is expected that later arrives to Europe with the same changes. This renewal is quite subtle to the outside, where you can see that the front has been redesigned slightly, as the rear bumper.
In the interior something similar happens and the changes will be minor. You can see a new steering wheel, as well as new combinations of moldings and decor for your cabin. The multimedia system also improved, and it incorporates a display with a faster response. Luckily, the new Mazda3 saves in his bowels more changes of those who had been able to appreciate at a glance
Talk of the G-Vectoring Control, a system that made its debut in this model range. Thanks to him, will significantly enhance the cornering, since it is a control vector of the motor torque. Will get that to each wheel reaches the correct torque so that the traction is optimal, to improve your acceleration, lateral and longitudinal. There will also be a system of all-wheel drive i-ACTIVE for some versions.
The Mazda3 in Japan will have a range of engines up-to-date. Will be formed by the known mechanics of gas Skyactive-G 1.5-liter with several levels of power. As for the diesel we will also look at the Skyactiv-D 2.2-liter as the top of range and the newcomer of 1.5 liter with 105 HP, which makes its debut in Japan. There will still be waiting for details upon your arrival to Europe.
