Too much Mazda for the money?
Fully loaded Mazda3 Astina 2.0 lays on the features, but at a hefty price
When Mazda launched the seventh-generation Mazda3 in SA a few months ago, the prices were an eye-opener.
The Japanese car has improved refinement with additional safety and technology, but with the step upmarket the 12-model range of sedans and hatchbacks now retail for R359,900 to R474,000. This represents steep range-wide hikes over the R274,700 to R432,800 for the sixth-generation Mazda3.
