Fun and efficient, the Mazda 3 is a vehicle that’s available as either a 4-door sedan or a 5-door hatchback suiting everyone’s needs. The base Mazda3 comes with a refined engine and a surprisingly sophisticated suspension and interior, while higher trims offer more power and plenty of useful convenience and luxury-oriented features.
But regardless which Mazda 3 you buy, you can expect an impressive level of convenience and top of the line safety equipment. Even the base trim, the Mazda3 standard features include a height-adjustable driver seat and stability control while a fully loaded Mazda 3 s Grand Touring is well equipped enough to provide a luxury sport sedan vibe.
Skyactiv 2.0-liter engine
Utilizing direct fuel injecting and with a 12.0:1 compression ratio, the Skyactiv engine is both powerful and incredibly fuel efficient. The new Skyactiv 2.0-liter produces 155 horsepower and achieves an astounding 40 mpg on the government’s highway cycle. The Skyactiv engine also runs on regular 87 octane fuel.
Mazda 3 Drivability
Thanks to its performance-oriented tuning, the Mazda 3 is blessed with good body control and a healthy amount of grip on the road. Additionally, its steering is quick and reasonably communicative which provides a greater sense of driver confidence when behind the wheel.
Mazda 3 Interior Features
While most economy cars have little in the manner of interior aesthetics, the cabin in the Mazda 3 shows impressive attention to detail. The materials used are some of the nicest found in this class and the driver will appreciate the standard tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel. The Mazda3 hatchback offers more cargo capacity than the sedan’s trunk but should you need more, both body styles provide a 60/40 split-folding rear seat.
Adaptive Front Headlamps
This is the first application on a compact vehicle of the swiveling blue-white bi-xenon high- and low-beam headlights. Having Bi-xenon lights means there are two headlights on each side – one for high beam and the other for low beam and the inner beams can rotate up to 15 degrees for better visibility in dark areas.
