Overview

The Mazda3 comes with one of two engine choices, both of which utilize Mazda's SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY to increase fuel economy. The base engine, available on all 'i' models, is a 2.0L 4-cylinder unit that makes 155 horsepower and is capable of up to 41 mpg on the highway. It's connected to either a 6-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual. The optional engine, available across the 's' range, is a 2.5L 4-cylinder capable of 184 horsepower.
