Cox Mazda Features Plenty of Used Mazda3 Models for Bradenton and Tampa Drivers
When it comes time to find a Tampa-area Mazda dealer for a used Mazda3, you know Cox Mazda in Bradenton is the place to go, right? Beyond our inventory of brand- new Mazda vehicles, we have a wide range of pre-owned autos from all different manufacturers, including Mazda.
The Mazda3 is one of the most stylish and sporty options on the road today, and we’ve got some features from recent models that you’re likely to find on pre-owned versions of Mazda’s famous car.
The Second Generation Mazda3 (2010 – Present)
This generation received a more style-oriented redesign, giving it the swooping curves and aerodynamic build that has become the trademark of the Mazda lineup. Mazda engineers worked particularly closely on ride quality, interior refinement, and power.
2012 saw the addition of more style tweaks and the new Skyactiv-G based engine, built for power and efficiency (netting an EPA-estimated 33 highway mpg on the 2013 model).
Some features you might find in the second generation Mazda3 include:
- Air conditioning
- Power accessories
- Bluetooth phone connectivity (select models)
- LED lighting
- Sport seating
- and more
Each of these vehicles, unless heavily driven, should still qualify for Mazda’s Certified Pre-Owned program, giving drivers access to the benefits of a new car (like a new warranty) at the price of a pre-owned auto.
The First Generation Mazda3 (2004 – 2009)
Most of the broad strokes that define the second-generation Mazda3 found their start here in the first version of the vehicle, including a 2.0L four-cylinder engine, multiple trim levels and body styles, and an incredible number of convenience and luxury features (the Mazda3 was one of the early adopters of Bluetooth technology, amongst others features).
