2016 Mazda 3 Pricing and Trim Levels
Details on the 2016 Mazda 3 pricing and trim levels have just been revealed, with the model set to roll out in late July. The model will come repackaged for the 2016 model year with some new standard features and two new options packages.
The 2015 Mazda 3 was highly popular, equipped with high-tech features at an incredibly affordable price. Not much is changing for 2016, and it really doesn’t need to. So far, it looks as though the entry level i SV trim that came with the 2015 Mazda 3 is getting dropped. Now, the base model is the i Sport.
Mazda said the trim will come with more standard features while still lowering the MSRP by $600, meaning the starting MSRP for the 2016 Mazda 3 is $17,845. Standard equipment will include a backup camera, Bluetooth and the Mazda Connect infotainment system.
New for the 2016 model is the Preferred Equipment Package. On the i Sport, this adds 16-inch alloy wheels, bright beltline trim, heated dual power door mirrors, 16-inch alloy wheels, a rear seat armrest with cupholders, auto on/off headlights, premium cloth-trimmed sport seats, rain-sensing windshield wipers, Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
There is a new Mazda 3 Touring Popular Equipment Package as well, which adds an auto-dimming interior mirror, dual-zone automatic climate control, a Bose® nine-speaker surround sound system, CD player, shark fin style antenna and SiriusXM satellite radio with a four-month subscription.
The Mazda 3 will once again be available as a four-door sedan or five-door hatchback. Regardless of which Mazda 3 you choose, the i Sport’s Preferred Equipment Package has an MSRP of $1,000, while the Popular Equipment Package for the i Touring has an MSRP of $1,100.
Whether you prefer to drive the 2015 Mazda 3 or are waiting for the repackaged 2016 Mazda 3 pricing and trim levels, the Mazda 3 has a lot to offer. Be sure to stay tuned to the Mazda of Lodi blog to learn more about this popular model.
