Mazda 3 to Steamroll Mazda Back Into Namibia

Since the launch of the first generation in 2003, through the second generation and up to the present, the Mazda 3 has consistently exceeded both customers’ expectations and the industry standards.

Responsive handling ensures driving pleasure while excellent environmental and safety performance is topped off with an emotive design complemented by the highest level of craftsmanship. It is no surprise then that the Mazda 3 has established itself as one of Mazda’s core models. It is sold in over 120 countries around the world and accounts for more than 30% of Mazda’s annual sales volume.

“Reintroducing the Mazda brand into the Namibian market could not be more exciting,” says Ricardo Raposo, managing director of Novel Motor Company in Windhoek. “The kind of thought and consideration that has gone into the new design is really well articulated into vehicles that are beautiful, technologically aanced and are really comfortable to drive,” he adds

The all-new Mazda 3 brings together the very best Mazda has to offer. At a single glance, the design conveys the unique, instantaneous power of which the Mazda 3 is capable. The dynamic expressions of KODO design, from the broad powerful stance, to the bold and rhythmical undulations of the body surface, suggest the exhilarating drive that awaits. The Skyactiv-G 2.0 engine models employ the full suite of Skyactiv Technology, which delivers both responsive driving and outstanding environmental performance, while the carried-forward renowned MZR 1.6 engine for the low to mid-range models continues to deliver exceptional performance.

“There is no doubt that the Mazda 3 represents the Mazda brand, and in order to take this key model to the next level, we made it our mission to deliver a product which would exceed the expectations of both long-standing fans and potential new customers. We knew that in addition to further enhance the vehicle’s basic performance and delivering a generous serving of Mazda’s renowned driving pleasure, it was essential to offer something new something never before seen in the segment,” says David Hughes, the managing director of Mazda South Africa.

The Mazda 3 is backed up by a 3-year unlimited kilometre factory warranty. To provide complete peace of mind motoring, a 3-year roadside assistance, a 3-year service plan and a 5-year corrosion warranty are also included.
