In the Japanese market, the Mazda 3 had been sold as the Axela, however now the company has decided to sell the series under the globally recognized name. Mazda President Akira Marumoto told reporters after a launch event in Tokyo:

“We want to greatly improve the brand image of the flagship compact cars in the domestic market.”

According to Mazda, the new Mazda 3 allows the driver to maintain a more natural and less stressful posture while driving and to drive for long distances without feeling exhausted thanks to a newly developed technology that “organically” links the driver’s seat, the chassis and wheels.
