The elegant Mazda3 always looks good as it cruises around the Gastonia, Charlotte, and Lincolnton streets. While the exterior is often what catches folks’ attention, opting for this sedan as a daily driver means you’ll be spending all your time in the cabin. How does the Mazda3 interior match up to the high standards this model has set for itself through the years?

To provide an answer and introduce you to the 2020 Mazda3 cabin, our Mazda of Gastonia team thought an interior review would be handy. The following article is a rundown of this sedan’s interior space, technology, and styling!

Innovation and Luxury Inside

Premium Sound

The Mazda3 offers the 9-speaker Bose® Centerpoint® 2 Surround Sound System, with available SiriusXM® Satellite Radio.

Active Driving Display

The full-color Active Driving Display projects important driving information onto the windshield in the driver’s line of view, helping the driver keep their eyes on the Shelby roads.

Sport Seats

The Mazda3 contoured sport seats are designed to hug the human body, providing comfort and support.

Perforated Leather

The Mazda3 perforated leather seating is specifically designed to be soft and breathable, with the added bonus of absorbing sound, ultimately reducing road noise on your Mt. Holly drives.

The Modern Decor of the MAZDA3

The styling of the Mazda3 interior, along with the many comfort-oriented features, makes this sedan a genuine charmer. If you’re making your commute on a frosty morning, the available heated front seats will keep you toasty.

The driver’s seat has an available 8-way power adjustability, power lumbar support, and a 2-position memory system, so the seat is always how you like it when you settle behind the wheel.

Adorn the cabin in leather if you wish. Leather-trimmed sport seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel provide a soft touch.

The interior of the Mazda3 adds even more sophistication with the highly coveted 7-inch LCD Meter Display.

MAZDA3 Interior with Apple CarPlay™ Technology

MAZDA3 Interior Technology Abounds

Mazda has always placed new-age technologies inside their sleek models. With the Mazda3, you’ll find some impressive and user-friendly systems to work with.

This sedan comes standard with an 8.8-inch touchscreen. Opting for Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration systems will make it easy for your phone to link to this impressive screen.

Whether you listen to music or podcasts, the sound emanating from the available aluminum speaker grille will be especially clear thanks to the Bose® 12-speaker premium audio system.

The list of technology found in the cabin extends from there with the following standard features:

  • Infotainment system voice command
  • SMS text messaging audio delivery and reply
  • Multifunction Commander control
  • Bluetooth® hands-free phone and audio streaming capability

Mazda3 Interior Space

Room for All to Enjoy

If you carpool to work or have to drop the kids off at school each morning, the Mazda3 will be an accommodating choice.

The headroom of the car is generous, checking in at 38 inches for those seated in the driver and front-passenger seats and 37.3 inches of headroom for those in the back. Legroom measures in at 42.3 inches up front and 35.1 inches in the second row, which is plenty of room for all passengers and the driver.

From there, you also have ample hip room, measuring 54.6 inches in the first row and 50.9 inches in the second row.
