A tuned suspension and SKYACTIV Vehicle Dynamics with G-Vectoring Control add even more driving precision. You’ll find a different kind of precision inside the cabin. Sport seats that support you and coddle you at the same time. Perfectly placed gauges and controls . Fold down all or part of the 60/40-split rear seatback and you can haul all kinds of things. And from a Mazda Connect infotainment system to Smart City Brake Support every Mazda 4-Door is loaded with technology that connects and protects. Choose from a variety of colors options and Genuine Mazda Accessories and build a Mazda 4-Door that’s all yours. The Mazda 4-Door. Focus on what’s important—driving.
