Mazda has announced a new Sport Black special edition for its 3 hatchback. Available to order from the 1st of April, it starts from £20,995 and is only available with the 118bhp 2.0-litre SKYACTIV-G petrol engine.
The hatchback is marked out by both sporty styling additions and additional equipment. 18-inch Gunmetal alloys combine with a black styling kit that brings front and side skirts, a rear spoiler, splitter-style rear bumper and door mirrors all dressed in gloss black. Red and white pearlescent paint are the two (free) colour choices.

Inside, you’ll find unique black leather and suede upholstery and bespoke mats, while standard kit includes the BOSE sound system upgrade, keyless entry, dual-zone climate control, cruise control and Mazda’s seven-inch touchscreen navigation system.
Performance and economy figures are unaffected from the regular 3 2.0-litre petrol. Just 800 examples of the Sport Black will be sold in the UK, however, so you’ll have to get your order in quick.
