The 2016 Mazda3 gets slightly updated with some new kit

Mazda announced to be introducing some slight new changes to the 2016 Mazda3 compact. Just don’t expect anything groundbreaking with the mechanics or the design.

Thanks to the changes, the base Mazda3 i is not only cheaper by $600 for a starting price of just $17,845, it also comes standard with a new rear-view camera.

Some packaging adjustments also adds the Preferred Equipment Package, adding automatic headlights, rain-sensing automatic wipers and new 16-inch wheels along with some minor exterior trimming updates–all to keep the Mazda3 fresh in a fast-changing segment.

The interior also gets some slight revisions with the new package, including premium cloth seats–though we always thought leather was the premium option–a rear-center armrest to keep the occupants at the back from dosing off uncomfortably, Blind Spot Monitoring, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

Should you want to step it up a little, the mid-range Mazda3 Touring gains a Popular Equipment Package, which we guess was popular by demand–go figure.

This adds an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, dual-zone automatic HVAC, and a Bose audio system with SiriusXM.
