Redesigning the Mazda3 from the ground up for 2014, Mazda not only dramatically altered the styling of this five-door sedan, but packed the roomy cabin with better quality materials and more standard content.
A product of Mazda's SkyActiv technologies, the 184-horsepower, 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine mated with a six-speed, driver-shiftable automatic transmission delivers spirited acceleration and remarkable fuel economy. The shifting is timely and precise, which contributes to performance and efficiency. Well-balanced, the Mazda3 delivers spirited performance and confidence-building handling.
Standard equipment includes lane-departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, Bi-Xenon headlights, push-button start, Bluetooth connectivity and Mazda Connect infotainment system with 7-inch touch screen, rearview camera, navigation system and nine-speaker Bose audio system with iPod interface.
