Thinking of getting a 2015 Mazda3 i sport

My previous car, a 2015 Corolla, was totaled. So I'm currently looking at a 2015 Mazda 3 i sport. I just have a quick question. I see that it has a manual shift mode, but I don't see any paddles on the steering wheel. Are there paddles on the steering wheel for the 2015 Mazda 3 i sport?

Only the sTouring and sGrand Touring have the paddles unfortunately. The manual shift mode is quite responsive though. These two trim levels will also have the 2.5L engine.

Is there an option to retrofit paddles to it? Or can the dealer to an official installation?

Only info I have for that is for the CX-5 (basically the same) and it is a very at own risk procedure. Dealer may be able to do it, maybe not would have to ask.
