Standard equipment levels are decent but not great covering at least all the basics. Available in four trims - Base, Select, Preferred and Premium. The least-expensive Base model comes with keyless entry, push-button start, an automatic transmission, 8.8-inch screen infotainment system, 8-speaker audio system, two USB ports, Bluetooth connectivity and AM/FM/HD Radio.
Buyers who opt-in for the Select package, available only on the sedan, will get Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration, leatherette upholstery, a dual-zone climate control, radar driven adaptive cruise control and rain-sensing wipers. Heading one step further with the Preferred package gets adds an 8-way power driver seat with lumbar support and memory settings, an excellent 12-speaker Bose audio system, heated front seats and Sirius XM radio with a 90-day trial. Premium models offer leather seating, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, a head-up display and a power moonroof.
Standalone options include a color navigation system, wireless charging pad and slick black exterior accent package to make your MAZDA3 stand out from the crowd.
Standard safety systems for the MAZDA3 include anti-lock brakes, traction control and stability control. Front, side, and curtain and driver's knee air bags as standard equipment. Optional features like automatic emergency braking that can prevent a frontal collision, blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning and lane-keep assist, and a driver-attention system that monitors for drowsiness can be equipped on all except base model versions of the MAZDA3.
