Mazda 3 Detailed Information


Looking for a sedan with sports-car-like handling, fuel economy that leads in its class and that is actually fun to drive? Slip into the new Mazda 3 in either the sedan or hatchback models, and you will enjoy the performance and features that Motor Trend has consistently praised for its standard features, and for the extensive variety of options typically offered only in more expensive vehicles.

The Mazda 3 is available in three trim models, all well-equipped and designed with styling to turn heads. SKYACTIV-VEHICLE Dynamics with G-Vectoring Control provides a noticeably smoother and less tiring driving and riding experience. The system adjusts power delivery seamlessly when cornering, resulting in more enjoyable and comfortable driving and a vehicle that works in harmony with the driver.

Technology is generously applied to every Mazda 3 model. SKYACTIV Technology provides the perfect pairing of engineering expertise to match engine performance with fuel economy.

Sport - The Mazda 3 Sport sedan is much more than a "base" model. Standard equipment includes the peppy 155hp 2.0L I-4 power plant, paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. Dress up the Sport with the Preferred Equipment package and you have 16-inch wheels, rain-sensing wipers, upgraded upholstery, blind-spot monitoring, and more.

Touring - This model ups the ante considerably with automatic climate control, 18-inch wheels, push-button start, keyless entry, Mazda's Smart City Brake Support system (for automated emergency braking at low speeds), power driver's seat, and heated leatherette seats up front. Add the Popular Equipment package and cruise in luxury with a 9-speaker Bose Surround Sound system, sunroof, and satellite radio. For extra power and excitement, select the Touring hatchback with Mazda's 184hp 2.5L engine.

Grand Touring - For true aficionados - the Grand Touring sedan or hatchback models come with the 2.5L engine, and still offer either the standard or automatic gearboxes. Additional equipment includes LED fog lights, leather seats, and heads-up display. Go all the way with the Premium Equipment package to add paddle shifters for automatic transmissions, LED headlights and taillights, navigation, and conveniences like an auto-dimming rearview mirror.  

Whatever model of the Mazda 3 suits your transportation needs, you will enjoy the superior handling, eye-catching styling, and high-quality interior craftsmanship and attention to every detail Mazda lends to driver and passenger comfort and convenience. The Mazda 3 is also an IIHS Top Safety Pick+.
