PRESS RELEASE: In pursuit of Mazda’s design philosophy, Car as Art, the Mazda3 adopts a matured Kodo design—which has received recognition around the world. Taking inspiration from Japanese aesthetics, Mazda adopted a “less is more” approach when designing the Mazda3 and stripped away superfluous elements from the car’s form. The result is a unique design that creates subtle undulations of light and shadows gliding over the car’s smooth body, crafting a natural and powerful expression of vitality.
