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.

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.
