The Mazda3 has been highly acclaimed as a compact sport sedan for good reason. A combination of nimble handling and sporty looks ensures that owners need make no apologies for their choice. Mazda3 sedans are equipped with a 150-bhp 2.0L I-4 and 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic. An optional 160-bhp 2.3L I-4 comes with a standard 5-speed manual or automatic. Mazda offers a 222-watt BoseĀ® 6-disc CD audio system and Xenon HID lights as options. An available appearance package adds fog lights, air dam, rear aero flares, and side sill extensions.

What Changed:

The addition of variable valve timing the 2.0L I4 increases horsepower in the Mazda3 i to 150. A 5-speed automatic replaces the 4-speed automatic on the 2.3L equipped Mazda3 s models. A Grand Touring model adds some more luxurious features like heated leather seats and an upgraded stereo.
