Product Overview

Mazda 3 / Axela Mk2 Hatchback (chassis code BL) is a compact hatchback in production from 2009 to 2013. It was available with a range of inline-4 engines that displaced 1.6 to 2.5 liters.
Compared to the Mazda 2 of the same period, the Mazda 3 hatchback is a much more beautiful car, especially in the Mazdaspeed3 form. Mazda also made sure that the Mk2 Mazda 3 received fully independent rear suspensions.
Mazda has made a good effort in aerodynamics, with a decent 0.28 coefficient of drag to show for it. Another plus is the small 10.4m (34.1ft) turning circle.
