The Mazda3 hatch and sedan range will see upgrades on all models, beginning with the entry-level Mazda3 Neo, which now offers steering wheel-mounted cruise control and remote audio controls, plus front-side and full length curtain airbags as standard.

The additional safety equipment now means all Mazda3 models share a five-star ANCAP safety rating.

On Mazda3 Neo, the additional airbags and cruise control, previously more than $1000 worth of optional equipment, are now included at no extra cost.

Continuing through the range, Mazda3 Maxx now adds front fog lamps, a leather wrapped gear knob (manual models only) and leather wrapped steering wheel to the feature list. The Mazda3 Maxx also enjoys a $485 reduction in its list price.

Mazda3 Maxx Sport and Mazda3 Diesel models pick up dual-zone climate control while also offering a price reduction of $485.

Top-shelf Mazda3 SP25 remains unchanged in its equipment levels, but also attracts a $485 price cut.

"New Generation Mazda3 has been widely recognised by Australian consumers as offering tremendous value since its launch last year," said Mazda Australia's Managing Director, Doug Dickson."Through the addition of new features and reduced prices, we are very pleased to be able to offer a Mazda3 that is now even better value."
