Welcome to the CorkSport Performance Steering Wheel for facelifted Mazda 3, CX-5, and CX-3. With the slight changes Mazda made to the facelifted GEN3 comes a brand new steering wheel to match. We took this great new design and elevated it to CorkSport standards! Not only is the CS wheel a great visual boost to your interior, you’ll love driving your Mazda even more! The thicker outer ring and enhanced thumb grooves give you greater driver confidence while retaining comfort for long drives! Read on for full details and more images.


The CorkSport Advantage

Mazda Cx5 leather steering wheel

OEM Fitment:

To make it easy for you, each CorkSport steering wheel starts out as a brand new casting. This means no ruining your OE wheel by stripping off the cover or having to deal with stitching on a new cover. All the OEM buttons, trim, airbag, and even paddle shifters (if equipped) simply transfer over to the CS wheel for a quick and painless install. However if you have a heated wheel, it will no longer function.

2016-2018 Mazda 3 Performance Steering wheel

Performance Design:

The performance inspired design gives you increased confidence and better control. The thicker grip, deep thumb grooves, and flat bottom give a great look and an even better feel. It’s fantastic for taking some corners on a backroad yet still comfortable for the daily commute.

Style and Comfort:

The CorkSport Performance Steering Wheel is finished in high quality genuine leather with a plush feel and slight texture. In high contact areas, there is perforated leather to prevent any sweaty hands during the summer months and to add a slight amount of extra grip.

3rd Gen Mazda 3 Alcantara steering wheel


Want something even more plush than the genuine leather? Opt for the Alcantara option. This changes the upper and lower inserts for a suede-like material that is perfect for those of you wanting that race inspired look.

2016, 2017, 2018 Mazda 3 how to installation instructions for a steering wheel

A nice looking and feeling upgrade for that peeling stock steering wheel. The sides feel great and add some good grip for intense driving. The red stitching was a added bonus to match my interior accents.
As a guy with bigger hands, I really appreciate the thicker outer ring on this wheel, the OE steering wheel always felt kind of small and this really helps fill in my hands for improved grip and overall feel on my daily drives.
The leather is soft and very comfortable, and the thumb grooves allow for great grip in tight cornering.

Overall great improvement over OEM, top 5 mods I've done
Fits the 21 CX-3 perfectly, and the whole process was a breeze once I was able to wrestle the airbag out (I swear there was a gremlin which was pushing the clips back in). Alcantara inserts, and thumb grooves feel great in the hand as well.
Ditch that skinny little wheel and get this luscious steering wheel installed ASAP. Feels oh so good in your hands.
Firmly grasp it.
This steering wheel is a fantastic addition to your interior while also providing a much better feel and grip than an OEM part. Friends and service departments alike love the look and feel it provides. A must if you love to drive your mazda and a great replacement if your stock wheel material is failing.
Very quality steering wheel with amazing directions that are not hard to understand :)
So we have 2 3rd gen Mazda 3’s.... and I can’t even drive the one without this wheel anymore.

This replacement steering wheel just feels amazing in the hand. The thicker feel, the small flat bottom, to the finger notches on the top, this is a must have for your daily driver, or your weekend warrior.

Will this work on a 2023 CX-50? It looks similar, but there could be one small detail that could prevent it from working. Do you think it’s possible? Rather ask now before I take the gamble
