The popular Mazda3 range has been boosted with the launch of the Mazda3 Sport Black special edition. Delivering an appealing blend of increased specification and sporty styling enhancements, the Sport Black arrives in dealerships from the 1st April 2016.

Offered exclusively in hatchback body style, the £20,995 Sport Black is marked out by enhanced styling and unique 18-inch Dark Gunmetal alloy wheels. Designed to complement the dynamic lines and proportions of the Mazda3, the Brilliant Black Sports Styling Kit contrasts perfectly with both the free-of-charge Soul Red Metallic and Snowflake White Pearlescent paint choices. 

The Brilliant Black front splitter, side skirts, rear bumper treatment and roof spoiler add a classy but sporty edge to the Mazda3’s sharp KODO: Soul of Motion design, while the Brilliant Black door mirrors and Dark Gunmetal alloy wheels wrap up the sporty appearance of this stand-out hatchback. Limited to just 800 examples in the UK, the Mazda3 Sport Black delivers hot hatch inspired looks in an affordable and exclusive package.   

Inside, the Sport Black’s tailor-made character continues with exclusive black half leather/ half suede seats, while the generous standard equipment tally includes bespoke carpet mats, BOSE® Surround-Sound System, reversing camera, Smart keyless entry, cruise control and dual-zone climate control. Fitted with Mazda’s MZD-Connect system, 7” colour touchscreen display and Multimedia Commander, the Sport Black benefits from integrated navigation as standard. 

“The Mazda3 is a core model in our line-up, one that continues to be popular with both private and fleet customers.  We’ve already enhanced the Mazda3 range this year with the introduction of the 1.5-litre SKYACTIV-D diesel engine, and now thanks to our latest special edition, we’re offering even more value to our customers. I’m sure the Mazda3 Sport Black’s winning combination of extra equipment, distinctive styling enhancements and competitive price will make this a very popular addition to the already extensive Mazda3 range,” comments Peter Allibon, Sales Director of Mazda Motors UK.
