HD Radio Comes to Mazda3


The 2014 Mazda3 will be the first in Mazda’s line to receive HD Radio capabilities.

2014 Mazda3 Radio

The 2014 Mazda3 has already garnered a great deal of acclaim and attention for its sleek style and fuel-efficient performance. However, one basic automotive feature included with the car was begun to grab headlines of its own. The 2014 Mazda3 will be the first vehicle in the Mazda line to include digital HD Radio capabilities.

HD Radio is the trademarked standard technology used by radio stations to broadcast digital audio. For the first time in the manufacturer’s history, the 2014 Mazda3 radio will receive digital audio signals from broadcast radio stations.


HD Radio will work together with the Mazda Connect interface to provide a superior media experience to Mazda3 drivers.

The 2014 Mazda3 radio will offer unique quality and content advantages. Much like the difference between standard and high-definition TV, HD Radio’s digital signal provides higher-quality audio compared to traditional radio. This means clearer sound free of any background noise or static. In addition to quality benefits, Mazda3 drivers will be privy to greater quantities of content. HD Radio allows stations to multicast a number subchannels with content that varies from their regularly scheduled analog broadcast programming.

The sharp Mazda Connect screen interface will support an additional range of fun and functional HD Radio features. Convenient Artist Experience® information will be transmitted through the 2014 Mazda3 radio. This not only displays song titles and artists but primary album art as well.


The clarity inherent to HD Radio is available in the 2014 Mazda3.

The functional features included with HD Radio are designed to get drivers out of a bind. On behalf of HD Radio and Clear Channel’s Total Traffic HD Network, the 2014 Mazda3 radio will receive free real-time traffic maps to most efficiently navigate highways and byways. No subscription required.

With one model already linked up with HD Radio, Mazda of Lodi anticipates many more in the Mazda line will receive these capabilities shortly. Until then, be sure to browse our HD Radio compatible Mazda3 selection for the clearest car audio in northern New Jersey.
