No, ours did not, and I actually agree with you: I prefer print, for such things as manuals and service records etc. I wish that not only would the car have come with such a case, but that there be a dedicated small storage space in the car (trunk/rear cargo area?) to store it.

I was able to create one in our last Mazda ('15 3 Sport (hatch) GT) on top of the spare tire, having bought a 'case' for the materials. But on our new one ('19 3 Sport GT) there is no room for such a thing, given the subwoofer etc. stuff back there.

Thanks to each of you who commented. I now realize that Mazda Canada decided that this is an item that they and owners of Mazda3s can do without. Nevertheless, it is fascinating that various markets receive such very differently equipped top-end vehicles. For example, UK Mazda3s appear to come with CD players, and our neighbours to the south of us in the U.S. get front end sensors but no heated steering wheel while we Canadians get a warm steering wheel but no front end sensors. Go figure. I know, all first world problems. :)
Yep, it is odd! The '19s here in Canada had (at least GT/Premium) stuff the U.S. cars didn't. Now, they have that stuff and the front end (parking) sensors with the up-market package. OTOH, we get the heated wheel and so on.

Can't understand why the front ultrasonic sensors aren't included in the 'premium' package here on the '20s. Damn car is pushing toward 34/35000 Cdn now. That aside, also don't get why we can't get the 3d parking view (at least, I don't think so). Is that available anywhere? The CD player is also a gripe!

Oh well; as you say, 1st world problems! I'll just be happy if my car ('19 3 Sport GT/premium) holds up after all the 'initial quality' issues.
