The cabin of the Mazda3 focuses on giving the driver the sense of being in complete command of the car, or ‘Jinbai Ittai’ as they call it. It features fabric upholstery, along with faux-carbon fibre trims on the instrument panel and steering wheel. Infotainment and features like radio, navigation and handsfree telephone services can be accessed through a seven-inch display positioned on the centre console.
