Why People Love the Mazda3 Sport

Mazda has been long known for its reliability and stylish-looking cars, but its flagship vehicle the Mazda3 Sport sets itself apart from the competition. 

With its stylish interior, powerful engine, fuel economy and price point of under $30,000, it’s easy to understand why this car is a fan favourite!

Built for Canadian Roads

Ottawa weather is unpredictable. From rain, snow and sleet, the Mazda3 Sport’s Skyativ Engine, 16+ inch silver metallic alloy wheels and i-Activ AWD work together to make sure this car can handle whatever mother nature throws at you.

This car also comes with G-Vectoring Control, which will shift your car’s weight during turns to improve traction and handling as well as create a smoother ride. Paired with 250 horsepower and 320lbs of torque, this car will have no problem dealing with Ottawa’s harsh winter weather.

Interior Features & Entertainment Features

Mazda does not skimp on interior features for its vehicles, and the Mazda3 Sport is no exception. Each version of the Mazda3 Sport comes with an 8.8 inch colour display with Mazda Connected Services (more on that later), as well as push to start engine and heated seats.

Mazda’s new and improved entertainment system lets drivers use both Android Auto and Apple Car Play via USB, letting users stay connected while keeping their eyes and ears focused on the road. Users can make phone calls, listen to and answer text messages and listen to their favourite music all hands-free.

But it’s what you don’t hear that sets this car apart from the competition. The interior of this vehicle is crafted for comfort and to dampen the harsh noises of the outside world, letting the driver focus on the road ahead and jam out with Mazda’s state-of-the-art sound system, partnered with Bose.


The Mazda3 Sport comes equipped with many safety features including cameras around the entire vehicle, stability and traction control, 27 sensors for the i-Activ AWD and a 360-degree view monitor available on higher-end models.


But the real shining star for this car is the addition of Mazda Connected Services. This service puts all the information and services you need for your vehicle directly into your smartphone with remote starter capabilities, roadside assistance and lock/unlock features, replacing the traditional key fob. Mazda Connected Services can also detect if you were involved in an accident, and patch you through to emergency services on your behalf.
