2015 Mazda3 delivers new features and sharper prices – Mazda3 Maxx now with front fog lamps as standard.

It’s already the most popular car in Australia and now the 2015 Mazda3 is boasting lower prices and more standard features.

Announced today by Mazda Australia, the entry-level Mazda3 Neo now comes standard with 16” alloy wheels, that’s instead of steel rims. The base-model now also comes standard with rear parking sensors, making the safety and convenience feature a standard item across the Mazda3 range.

While the mid-spec Mazda3 Maxx and the Touring variant now both get front fog lamps as standard.

The best news though for buyers of the Mazda small car is that Mazda has passed on the full 5% price reduction that flows from the Free Trade Agreement between Australian and Japan. This means up to $1,150 has been taken off upper-spec variants.

With a starting price of just $20,490, Mazda Australia Managing Director Martin Benders says the Mazda3 is now an even more attractive proposition.

“In a year when the small car segment contracted, All-New Mazda3 not only grew sales by 3 per cent, but was the firm favourite amongst private and business fleet buyers.”

“With the addition of new features and a reduction in price, we expect Mazda3 will maintain its overwhelming appeal to these buyers in 2015.”
