Mazda 3 range updated
Mazda 3 Venture and Sport Nav models upgraded at no extra cost
The Mazda 3 family car range has been updated, and now offers more equipment for no extra cost.
The changes apply to all Venture and Sport Nav cars, which now benefit from Bluetooth, climate control and 17-inch alloy wheels as standard. Rear parking sensors, sporty black cloth seat trim and new exterior colours are also included.
In addition to the extra equipment, all Venture models get sports styling, front foglamps and tinted rear windows. Inside is a multifunction leather steering wheel, a six-speaker stereo and integrated touchscreen TomTom sat-nav. The extensive kit list also stretches to electric rear windows, auto lights and wipers, heated front seats and cruise control.
Venture cars can be specified with either a 1.6-litre petrol or 1.6-litre diesel engine – the latter capable of 65.7mpg and only 115g/km of CO2.
The Sport Nav model – only available with the powerful 2.2-litre diesel engine – looks even more distinctive, with LED rear lights and a heated front windscreen. It’ll do 0-62mph in 8.2 seconds and return 52.3mpg.
Despite all the extra kit, prices are unchanged, and start at £17,495 for the petrol-powered Mazda 3 Venture, with the diesel costing £18,995. The top-spec Sport Nav with the higher-powered 2.2-litre diesel is priced from £20,995.
There’s also zero per cent finance with no deposit until the end of June, meaning an upgraded Mazda 3 Venture can be yours for only £274 per month.
