2018 Mazda3 Sport Black Priced From £21,595 In The UK

Mazda UK will start taking orders for the 3 Sport Black special edition on April 3, offering extra kit and styling enhancements to the customer.

On the outside, the 2018 Mazda3 Sport Black is distinguished by the unique 18-inch dark alloy wheels and the Jet Black roof spoiler and door mirrors, with Mazda offering free of charge a choice between Soul Red Metallic, Snowflake White Pearlescent and Eternal Blue Mica exterior paint finishes.

The 2018 Mazda3 Sport Black will be limited to just 700 cars for the UK market, offering a generous equipment level that pretty much has everything you want and more. Prices start from £21,595, with the Mazda3 Sport Black offered exclusively in hatchback bodystyle.

Based on the 120PS SE-L Nav Mazda3, the Sport Black gets extra features like a reversing camera, LED highlights with Adaptive front lighting system and Smart keyless entry. The interior features a heated steering wheel, a Bose Surround-Sound System, cruise control and dual-zone climate control, with the infotainment system having a 7-inch touchscreen display and integrated navigation.

Power comes from a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G petrol engine that produces 118hp (120PS) and 154lb-ft (210Nm) of peak torque and is mated to a six-speed manual transmission. 0-62mph (100km/h) comes in 8.9 seconds while top speed is 121mph (194km/h). As for the fuel economy, the 120PS Mazda3 returns a combined 55.4mpg (5.1lt/100km) and has CO2 emissions of 119g/km.

“The Sport Black special edition delivers even more value to our customers and I’m sure the its winning combination of extra equipment, distinctive styling enhancements and competitive price will make this a very popular addition to the already extensive Mazda3 range,” said Jeremy Thomson, Managing Director of Mazda Motors UK.

    Still love the looks but Mazda’s always need to have bigger wheels. While a 308, Golf or Megane also look bulky enough with normal wheels. While lots of Mazda’s look a bit “fragile” or “skinny”

    Wish the U.S. had the extra features like the power-folding mirrors and whatnot. Looks good with the black accents.
