The locally assembled 2018 Mazda 3 hatchback is offered here at an asking price of RM128,625 OTR without insurance.
This mid-size Japanese hatch competes in one of the most competitive segments that is occupied by the likes of Honda Civic, Kia Cerato, Ford Focus Sedan, Hyundai Elantra, and the Toyota Corolla Altis.
Under the hood of the car is the familiar direct injected Skyactiv-G 2.0-litre naturally aspirated four-pot mill that outputs 162hp at 6,000rpm and 210Nm of torque at 4,000rpm. Drive is sent to the front wheels via a six-speed torque converter type automatic transmission.
Features offered include G-Vectoring, MZD Connect technology, Mazda's iActivsense advance safety system, as well as 6 airbags among others.
