Mazda3 Interior: Dimensions
The Mazda3 is made to seat up to five people across two rows of seats. Despite this car’s small size, you’ll find plenty of room in every seat for adults and children alike. The front seats are especially spacious, offering 42.2 inches of legroom to accommodate even the tallest of drivers.
In the backseat, 35.8 inches of legroom will be more than enough to keep average-size adults comfortable during longer rides. With headroom measuring 38.6 inches up front and 37.6 inches in the back, there’s ample room for everyone to keep good posture.
How about that trunk? Its size differs depending on body style. In the Mazda3 sedan, you’ll find 12.4 cubic feet of cargo volume—perfect for your groceries or golf clubs. The hatchback model offers space for even more of your things, with 20.2 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats and a grand 47.1 cubic feet with those seats folded down.
Advanced Technology Features
On your clean, stylish dashboard, free of buttons and clutter, there’s a standard 7-inch MAZDA CONNECT™ touchscreen fixed at the top. While we think you’ll like the free-floating look of the screen, we know you’ll be even more impressed by its capabilities.
Bluetooth® wireless comes standard, so you can make calls and stream music hands free during your rides. If you want, you can upgrade to equip the system with navigation, allowing you access to easy-to-follow directions and intuitive maps for your drives.
One key advantage of this system is its versatility. You can input selections via the tablet-like touchscreen or use the console-mounted control knob to scroll through all your options. Both are easy to use—it’s just a matter of what feels more convenient for you.
Mazda3 Cabin Materials & Convenience
The Mazda3 cabin is incredibly classy for its segment. Cloth seating comes standard, and you can choose between black and sand shades. In higher trims, you can opt for leatherette (in black) or real leather (your choice of black or a sand-like parchment color) to get a more refined look and feel.
The cut and stitching of the seat fabric combined with the simple, clean instrument cluster and horizontally oriented dashboard give this cabin a premium feel that not every small car can offer. The front seats (and available sport seats) are well bolstered, keeping you in place as you try out this car’s excellent handling capability.
