In 2016, Mazda introduced it's first limited edition Sport Black trim level to the Mazda3 range, restricted to just 800 examples. Now 2 years on it's back and is limited to just 700 units.
This edition is based on the SE-L Nav trim Mazda 3 boasting an array of stand out styling features. Unique, darkened 18-inch alloy wheels are part of the billing, with a black roof spoiler and black, power folding heated door mirrors finish off the look. Mazda’s trademark Soul Red Metallic paint finish is standard, although a white and blue metallic shade are also available.
Inside, the driver gets a heated steering wheel and cruise control. There is also a dual-zone climate control system, a BOSE nine-speaker audio setup, and a seven-inch colour touchscreen infotainment system complete with sat-nav and a reversing camera.
Other standard kit includes rear parking sensors, automatic wipers, automatic adaptive LED headlights, keyless entry, plus Bluetooth and USB connectivity.
Under the bonnet, the 3 Sport Black uses a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol developing 118bhp. Power is sent to the front wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox.
