Exhilarating driving performance with the Mazda3 Fastback


The Mazda3 Fastback gives a driving performance that exceeds even the expectations this sporty design creates. Mazda cars are known for providing an exhilarating and dynamic driving experience. That’s because we put driving fun first. It’s just one of the many ways that we defy convention.


This unconventional approach to designing and building cars continues here, with a car that’s inspired by the Japanese notion of Jinba Ittai – ‘horse and rider as one’. This creates a special bond between car and driver that contributes to giving this sport sedan such an exhilarating driving performance, with exciting and responsive road handling.

SKYACTIV-Body structure A lighter, stronger body shell for safer, dynamic driving

feature focus 01

This SKYACTIV-Body structure is both lighter and stronger, improving the car’s dynamic driving performance and giving you a safer driving experience.

The new SKYACTIV-Body structure enhances the car's driving performance and gives you a better driving experience. How does it do this? We've used ultra-high tensile steel reinforcements to improve the rigidity of the body structure by around 30%. At the same the overall weight has been reduced without sacrificing safety performance.


The combination of the increased rigidity and lighter weight makes the road handling far more responsive and the car more agile to drive. This improves the driving dynamics and gives you a more enjoyable driving experience

SKYACTIV engines and transmission Powerful, efficient powertrains for an enhanced driving experience

Our new SKYACTIV-G 1.5 litre engine gives a much better response and greater fuel economy than previous 1.5 litre engines.

The newly developed 100ps SKYACTIV-G petrol engine is light and compact, providing significantly better fuel efficiency than previous small capacity engines.


The 120ps and 165ps SKYACTIV-G petrol engines are both refined, direct-injection engines, providing a combination of outstanding performance and great fuel economy.


An exceptionally efficient and clean SKYACTIV-D 1.5 litre diesel engine delivers top-class fuel economy and performance. Whilst, the 150ps SKYACTIV-D 2.2 litre engine provides fast acceleration that defies conventional diesel engines, as well as offering outstanding fuel economy and performance.


You can choose from a six-speed SKYACTIV-DRIVE automatic or a six-speed SKYACTIV-MT manual transmission with the SKYACTIV-G Petrol 2.0 litre and SKYACTIV-D Diesel 1.5 litre and 2.2 litre engines. Both the SKYACTIV-G Petrol engines and SKYACTIV-D Diesel engines comply with Euro 6 emissions standards.
