Mazda has freshened up its Mazda3 sports line up with improved value, safety and appeal across the sports range.

The streamlined Neo Sport, Maxx Sport, Diesel, SP23 and MPS variants now sport a host of cosmetic changes and added extras.

The range of colours available for the Mazda3 range has also increased to 12, with the addition of Copper Red, Golden Sand, Metropolitan Grey and Stormy Blue.

Base model Neo Sport retains its $20,990 price tag despite the addition of alloy wheels, power windows and mirrors and an AUX jack for iPod compatibility as standard – totaling $1600 worth of extras at no added cost.

Priced from $25,500 the Maxx Sport gets six airbags, chrome outer door handles, new design 16-inch alloy wheels, upgraded cloth interior trim which takes inspiration from the SP23, and a sleek centre console in Piano Black finish.
