Find the 2016 Mazda 3 Owners Manual below. The 2016 Mazda 3 Manual hatchback & sedan have entered the new generation with the 2016 model. It has undergone major redesigning to provide a better version of itself.
The 2016 Mazda 3 manual is one of the best compact cars in the market. Its sporty handling and superior performance make it an ideal choice from an engineering POV. Along with that, it is one of the very few compacts to offer both auto and manual transmission with every engine. Add to that its premium interiors and classy exteriors, and you get a beauty-with-brains kind of a machine. Finally, advanced safety features round out the 2016 Mazda 3’s excellent value proposition.
2016 Mazda 3 Features
The 2016 Mazda 3 Manual is a design masterpiece. On the exteriors, its gentle curves contrast with sharp edges to lend it plenty of boldness. In addition, the endless sweeping hood and the cabin back rears make the Mazda 3 sporty and chic.
The interiors might feel a bit stuffy, especially to those with long legs occupying the rear seats. However, the premium materials make up for this lack of space. As a result, you won’t feel much discomfort either as a driver or rider.
With the 2016 model, Mazda added a touch-screen as a standard feature to the 3. All but the lowest SV trim feature the Mazda Connect Infotainment System. The unique capability of this system is its text-to-speech feature. You can get real-time updates of emails and text messages on the LED display or even through the audio system. Even further, you can set up automatic responses to these. Finally, you can reply to Facebook and Twitter alerts using the “Shout” function.
The 2016 Mazda 3 Manual is one of the safest cars on the road. It uses cameras and radars to pack in advanced safety features. While the rear-view camera is standard with all trims, you can upgrade to lane-departure alert and collision detection features. The top trims also feature a blind spot monitoring system. Finally, the unique safety system in the Mazda 3 is the auto-emergency brake. It alerts drivers to a collision in tight spaces under slow speeds of less than 19 mph.
2016 Mazda 3 Manual Engine Options
The 2016 Mazda 3 provides buyers to choose from two engines – a 2-liter, 155 horsepower one, or the upgraded 2.5-liter, 184 horsepower four cylindered versions. You can opt for either of them in any trim except the lowest SV model. Also, you can fit both these engines with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission system.
Along with these specs, the car’s superior engineering makes it a sheer delight to drive. The handling is sporty, and the Mazda 6 can wriggle easily through tight bends and hairpins. Finally, the steering feels decently responsive. Although, we accept that Mazda hasn’t got the shift to an all-electric steering spot on. The company’s legacy electro-mechanical system felt just a little better.
The 2016 Mazda 3 Owners Manual comes in 3 basic trims, with one additional old SV trim. The Sport version has the basic configuration and is a good option for regular city driving. The mid-range Touring trim offers other features such as a climate control system and high-end Bose surround sound for those willing to spend a bit more.
Finally, for those looking for style and power, the top-end 2016 Mazda 3 Manual Grand Touring is the ideal purchase. Rich additions to this trim include a delightful moon roof and leather upholstery.
All of the trims can be bought in either the hatchback or the sedan body style. In addition, you can choose either of the engines for any trim. If you go for the lower 2.0-liter engine, they prefix an ‘i’ to the trim’s name, like so – i Sport and i Touring. Likewise, you get the letter ‘s’ for opting for the more powerful 2.5-liter engine – s Touring, and s Grand Touring.
The 2016 Mazda 3 Owners Manual is a great car and consistently ranks among the top few models in its class. So if you are looking for a compact car, you can try this beauty without worrying much!
