The 2020 Mazda3 hatchback and sedan returns its sophisticated styling and exhilarating driving experience with the goal of further separating itself from its class with enough premium features to rival luxury automakers’ offerings.
Dave Coleman, vehicle development engineer at Mazda, is one of the people tasked with making that technology a reality. Recently he took a few minutes to explain how the various systems work together in Mazda3.
With every push of the start button, Mazda engineers want the cars they’ve designed to feel as if they’ve come to life. For them, it’s not about the numeric output of the engine. It is about the way the car feels.
To create a car that is as much fun to drive as it is to look at, Mazda engineers approached the development of the new Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture in Mazda3 from a holistic approach.
Human centric engineering is at the core of Mazda’s Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture, creating an intuitive bond between car, driver and passengers, resulting in the unique effortless, joyful feeling of driving that only Mazda can deliver.
The addition of the Skyactiv-D diesel engine option for the Signature trim of the 2019 CX-5 gives consumers even more choices for the already well-rounded crossover SUV.

The all-new Mazda3 comes in two versions with distinct personalities. Curious whether the hatchback or sedan is a better fit for you? Take this short quiz to find out.
As the first model from Mazda’s next-generation range, the all-new Mazda3 is a special car. More than simply a means of transportation, Mazda wants it to enrich owners’ lives, to serve as an inspiration and empowerment to a more fulfilling lifestyle.
A crossover SUV must be steadfast, reliable and comfortable enough to drive to work or across the country, no matter what Mother Nature has in store. So, of course, Mazda’s engineers created the midsize CX-9 to be a master of all four seasons.
Hurricane-force winds, desert heat, and blasts of microwave energy are just a few of the intense tests mazda cars go through to get them ready for the road. We take a rare look inside the vast chambers where the quest for driveability and reliability takes place.
It’s hard to sum up everything that makes the Mazda3 stand out from the competition, but there are a double-handful of good reasons why this car deserves serious consideration.
Small or large—or somewhere in between—all Mazdas tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety earn the organization’s highest safety scores.
From smartphones to tablets, bottles and more, Mazda designers have optimized every part of the current generation CX-5’s interior to help store your belongings as conveniently as possible.
For 2018, refinements and premium features help the Mazda3 continue to provide an experience that can be considered much greater than one might think at its price point.
Mazda’s turbocharged SKYACTIV-G 2.5T engine, available in higher-trim models of Mazda6 sedan, delivers the right balance of torque and horsepower.
Suspension of Belief: How Mazda Made the CX-5 More Comfortable Without Sacrificing Outstanding Handling
When the engineers started working on the 2017 Mazda CX-5, they had some specific goals in mind, namely ride quality and refinement to match, providing a truly premium experience at a very attainable price point.
All three of the crossover SUVs that Mazda sells in the U.S.—the CX-3, CX-5 and three-row CX-9—won their respective categories.
Mazda6 is a spirited car that begs to be driven, rewarding its driver and passengers alike with both exhilaration and comfort. And yet, it sacrifices nothing a family may need.

Mazda is proud to win its fair share of accolades because the people who know recognize the creativity, perseverance and effort that goes into making a truly excellent vehicle.
Mazda’s engineers aimed to deliver driving satisfaction to every driver, taking the Jinba Ittai—“horse and rider as one”—driving experience to the highest level possible.
By constantly monitoring different factors around the vehicle, i-ACTIV AWD is able to predict upcoming conditions, allocating engine torque to the necessary wheel to maintain control, stability and forward momentum.
The MX-5 Miata is a symbol of Mazda’s car-making philosophy, “Jinba Ittai,” which means horse and rider as one and expresses the type of fun-to-drive roadster engineers have intended to build since day one of the vehicle’s inception.
With more than 4.5 million produced since its introduction as a 2004 model, Mazda3 is Mazda’s best-selling nameplate in the world and reached 1 million sales faster than any Mazda before or since.
SKYACTIV Technology couples increased fuel efficiency and engine output from meticulous design and advanced engineering. This innovative technology coupled with the monozukuri philosophy—a simple and minimalistic approach to production—continues to enhance the drivers' experience.
