Mazda 3 is to receive a host of equipment upgrades and price reductions making it even safer and better value.

Available in both hatch and sedan, 2010 Mazda 3 upgrades begin with the Mazda 3 Neo, which now offers enhanced safety with the addition of standard side (front) and curtain (front and rear) SRS airbags. Significantly, this means that the entire Mazda 3 range now achieves a five-star ANCAP rating.

The Mazda 3 Neo is also the beneficiary of cruise control and steering wheel-mounted audio controls for improved driver convenience.

The additional airbags and cruise control, which previously cost more than $1,000 as options, have been added at no cost.

The upgrades continue through the range with the Mazda 3 Maxx next in line for some special treatment. The addition of fog lamps and a leather wrapped gear shift knob (manual only) and steering wheel combined with a $485 reduction in the Manufacturer’s List Price (MLP) ensuring that the Mazda 3 Maxx remains competitive.

Both the Mazda 3 Maxx Sport and Mazda 3 Diesel now offer improved passenger comfort with the addition of dual-zone climate control. A price reduction of $485 is also applied to these models.

The more luxurious Mazda 3 SP25, already packed with a long list of features and sporting a larger and more powerful 2.5 litre engine, now offers better value thanks to a $485 price cut.
