Mazda 3 Maxx Sport 2018 Review: Snapshot


Just like the entry-level Neo, the Maxx has scored another five letters in its name, and is now known as the slightly racier-sounding Maxx Sport. 

\n

The second tier of the range is available for $23,490 for the six-speed manual and $25,490 for the six-speed auto. The Maxx Sport is powered by the 2.0-litre 'SkyActiv' petrol with stop start, 114kW and 200Nm.

\n

The Maxx Sport has 16-inch alloys, picks up dual-zone climate control, auto wipers and headlights and for the first time in the range there's an electronic park brake. There is also a six-speaker stereo with DAB, Bluetooth and USB, rear parking sensors, remote central locking, keyless start, cruise control, gear-shift paddles (auto), sat nav, leather steering wheel, reversing camera and a space-saver spare.

\n

Mazda's 'MZD Connect' looks after the entertainment and sat nav with a 7.0-inch touchscreen and rotary-dial controlled system, but it's still missing Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

\n

The safety package includes six airbags, ABS, stability and traction controls, forward and reverse AEB, blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert.
