I haven't seen any mention of what airbag options are available in Canada, other than the standard two-stage front ones. Will side and curtain bags be available as in other regions?

From my understanding the answer is: NO.

No airbags, no Stability+Traction Control, no HIDs, no NAV.

Check mazda.ca - some of their info is wrong, but it gives you a good idea nevertheless

Thanks for the quick answer dinu01.

See, now that just pisses me off; thank you Mazda Canada, for putting less value on my life than those of people in the US, Europe and Asia. I understand that they want to keep the MSRP down, with Canadian disposable income being lower on average than the US, but they give me the option of dropping cdn$1700 to swathe my car in dead cow and chop a hole in the roof, but not for curtain airbags to keep my head from exiting the car via the side window if I get T-boned. If Ford can manage to offer them on the Focus, why not Mazda?

Don't know why SAB/SAC is not for us. I'm still deciding whether to get the GS w/Sport Package and Power Package or the GT... It's all about the $$$.

I think ill go with the GX myself, plus A/C.

No differences between GX and GS, besides the options you can get.
I'm considering that myself too.
Hoping that the money I save will go to mods.

to answer your second question, I believe we're getting the black/blue interior (two-tone). GX people (which might include myself) get one-tone, I think.

as for MZ3 not having side airbags, I believe that is true. dinu01?

Correct guys! I would spend $500 on SAB/SAC but if they don't offer it.... I'd rather have this over NAV, HIDs, etc. We're not getting them but just as an example.

Very true. The Civic and Corolla won't have a safety advantage so those typical conservative safety-first before handling type of H/T buyers could help boost sales.
