The Mazda3's exterior is inspired by our unique KODO design language


Because it’s a car designed with our ‘KODO – Soul of Motion’ design theme, the body styling expresses dynamic motion in every detail – from the frame up. The sculpted forms of the Mazda3 create an impression of powerful, forward movement. The strong, wide stance gives a clue to the exciting driving performance and manoeuvrability. And with its KODO design, this car exterior conveys an energetic tension and a sense of motion that appeals to drivers from first glance.
