Mazda Philippines is introducing the Mazda3 edition100 as it continues the celebration of Mazda’s centennial year.
Featuring a distinctive colorway with detail enhancements that further accentuates the dynamic form of the Mazda3 Sportback Premium, the same features that earned for the popular sedan the coveted 2020 World Car Design of the Year award at the World Car Awards.
The 2020 Mazda3 is Mazda’s first new generation model to showcase the evolution and coming of age of its Evolved KODO: Soul of Motion design philosophy.
The Mazda3 edition100 is fitted with original equipment Mazdaspeed body kits that are color-matched with the three key body colors of the Mazda3 Sportback Premium. These color schemes are – Soul Red body kits for the Snowflake White Pearl and Jet Black Mazda3 exterior; and Gloss Black body kits for the Soul Red Crystal exterior. The colorways give these exclusive commemorative models a very distinctive and dynamic look and will be paired with premium red leather seats and interior trims, giving it a very sporty appeal.
Another distinctive exterior enhancement is its high-gloss Midnight Black 18-inch wheels and red colored brake calipers, as a nod to the model’s sporty and dynamic DNA. One subtle detail for this model is the front license plate holder, which was relocated to make its sure its beautiful and striking front grille will not be impeded visually.
“For a hundred years now, Mazda has been at the forefront of designing and creating vehicles that arouse the emotions of its owner,” says Steven Tan, president, and CEO of Mazda Philippines. “We introduce the Mazda3 edition100 as the first model to celebrate the brand’s unrelenting passion for seamlessly combining stimulating design with groundbreaking engineering. As this year’s World Car Design of the Year winner, the Mazda3 edition100 becomes an even more compelling choice for those who appreciate the exclusivity of distinction.”
