The Mazda 3 Sport Black special edition model has been added to the 3 hatchback range, available to order from 1 April and priced at £20,995.

The style-focused five-door model gets cosmetic upgrades such as 18in alloys and a sports styling kit that includes a black front splitter, side skirts, rear bumper, roof spoiler and door mirrors.

It’s only available with the manufacturer’s 118bhp 2.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine, paired with a six-speed manual gearbox. Just 800 models will be sold in the UK.

There’s also a boost in equipment, with an upgraded sound system, reversing camera, keyless entry, cruise control and dual-zone climate control with a 7.0in touchscreen display and sat-nav, all as standard.

It’s available with red or white paint options, and the interior benefits from half-leather, half-suede seats.

Just as well screwed together as a 2016 A Class

Exactly as the title says, not to mention the hideously rubbish first A class, and speaking of Mercedes and black, just Google Mercedes black death to see just how good the "German" Merc engines really are.
Dont get me wrong, I love alot of cars Merc make and everyone has their opinion, but man get off your horse, I guarantee you you'll see the Merc back at the dealership more often than any Japanese car..

Why despise Japanese product because they can produce a nice looking and decent car at a price that is affordable? To compare with a £100000+ Mercedes or even a Fiesta which costs at least the same as the Mazda makes no sense. I am beyond the age where a dressed up car appeals but still hanker for soemthing a bit different from Euro-cars.
Maybe the Japanese still have a successful car industry and we don't is because they innovate and produce cars for people who don't inhabit a fantasy car world.

@ dippypippy

i despise Japanese product because they don't have an original idea in their heads.....they just copy other (often premium ) brands, and in the case of using Black as a special edition - use it in a totally inappropriate way, in an effort to make boring cars more interesting.
Of course they can use the word Black....but Black Edition may be more appropriate.
As for nice looking.....!!!! well here is an example of the mess when they DONT copy a European design I guess.

Just 118bhp? No wonder it's on sale 1 April.
