The base Mazda3 Neo gets the biggest upgrade morphing into the Neo Sport, with Mazda’s MZD infotainment system, which includes a DAB+ radio and a reversing camera along with two additional speakers, raising the speaker count to six.

Stepping up to the Mazda3 Maxx Sport – formerly Mazda3 Maxx – and buyers of the updated Mazda3 Maxx Sport are treated to the addition of automatic headlights and wipers, dual-zone climate and an electric park brake.
