Customize it with a wide variety of exterior color options: Rhodium White Premium,Platinum Quartz Metallic, Deep Crystal Blue Mica, Jet Black Mica, Soul Red Crystal metallic, and Machine Gray Metallic. Artisan Red Premium and Sonic Silver Metallic are available with an extra fee.

Standard interior features include tri-zone automatic climate control with an allergen-blocking pollen filter, and the Mazda keyless entry system. A standard 10.25-inch infotainment system pairs with wireless smartphone connectivity for easy access to your favorite apps. For more convenience, you can opt for the Driver Personalization System. Add some luxury with genuine Nappa leather upholstery with decorative Japanese Kakenui stitching.
