Which Mazda3 Should I Buy?

The Mazda3 is one of Australia’s most popular cars and has been in production for 40 years. But did you know there are six different model variants? From engine capacity to features, there’s quite a difference between Mazda3 model options. Our experts have outlined the key differences between each model so you can make an informed decision about which Mazda3 will suit your lifestyle. At Brighton Mazda we of course stock all models and can offer further advice and prices in-person.

Mazda3 Neo

The entry level Neo is a quality vehicle that includes all the essentials. With rear parking sensors, and smart city brake support forward, it’s a safe car with a 5 Star ANCAP safety rating. A 2.0 litre SKYACTIV engine means good performance on the road and 16-inch alloys adds style. 

Who will it suit?

The Neo is the most budget conscious choice of the Mazda3 range. This model would suit first car buyers, young professionals and those who want need a reliable vehicle to get them around town.

Mazda3 Maxx

Our most popular Mazda3 model variant is the Mazda3 Maxx. Where the Neo includes a simpler 4 speaker monochrome entertainment screen, Maxx models upgrade to our fantastic MZD connect entertainment system. That’s a 7-inch colour touch screen with 6 speakers and satellite navigation. Maxx also has enhanced safety with blind spot monitoring and reversing camera. 

Who will it suit?

Maxx is the perfect mid-range vehicle for those buying their first or second new car. It’s also a great choice for older drivers looking to downgrade from a larger passenger car. If you value safety and convenience then the Maxx really offers a good deal.

Mazda3 Touring

The main difference between Maxx and Touring is additional style and technology. Touring models come with leather interior including seats and steering wheel. Also included are rain-sensing wipers and dual-zone climate control (great for Melbourne’s unpredictable weather!). 

Who will it suit?

If you desire a leather interior then Touring is the model for you, as earlier models only have a cloth option. The additional automatic technology will suite those who enjoy their creature comforts and those who spend a lot of time driving.
