2.0 Astina with unique finishes and details

Before 2020 became the year of utter chaos that it did, it started with some good news - like Mazda celebrating its 100th birthday. To mark the occasion, the company has created 100th Anniversary Editions of each of its models

Taking inspiration from Mazda’s first passenger car, the R360 Coupé, the birthday Mazda3 2.0 Astina has an exterior finished in Snow Flake White Pearl Mica and features 100th Anniversary badges on the front fenders. The centre caps of the alloy wheels are also unique 100th Anniversary pieces.

For the inside, the seats and carpet are burgundy, with the dashboard and door panels finished in white leather. Once again, the 100th Anniversary logo appears on the front headrests and the key fob, which is presented in a special edition box.

If this sounds like your kind of Mazda3, the bad news is that they won’t be offered for sale in South Africa. If you see one on the road, it’s one of three models in the country which will be made available to the media only.
