2021 Mazda3 Sedan & Hatchback

Sporty, Fun, Stylish: The 2021 Mazda3 Sedan and Hatchback

The 2021 Mazda3 sedan and hatchback are as stylish as they are affordable. With several trims to choose from, along with three engine options, you can build your ideal car at the right price. New for the 2021 model year is the powerful Mazda SKYACTIV®-G 2.5 Dynamic Pressure Turbo engine with up to 250-hp and 320 lb-ft of torque and an efficient 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 155 horsepower. Thrilling to drive and comfortable to ride in, the new Mazda3 is loved by driving enthusiasts for its fun-to-drive nature thanks to responsive steering, firm but smooth ride and the extra oomph that comes with the new Turbo engine option.

2021 Mazda3 Sedan

The new Mazda3 sedan varies from the economical yet upscale Mazda3 2.0 sedan to the quick accelerating Mazda3 2.5 Turbo and up to the luxurious and powerful Mazda3 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus. In all new 2021 Mazda3 models, you get rain-sensing windshield wipers, Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop and Go, LED lights, remote keyless entry and a 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback. The base Mazda3 2.0 has fewer features but will net you the best gas mileage at up to 36 mpg* and starts at just $20,650.

The next trim up, the Mazda3 2.5 S sedan, gets a more powerful engine – the SKYACTIV®-G 2.5 DOHC 4-cylinder with 186-hp, adds Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, losing just 1 mpg to get up to 35 mpg*. You will only spend about a grand more.

As you move up in trim levels, you can add Mazda i-ACTIV® AWD as an option while Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert becomes standard. Wheel size goes from 16-inches to 18-inch aluminum alloy, and new color options are added, including Soul Red Crystal Metallic (for a fee), and the gear selector and steering wheel get wrapped in leather. 

The 2021 Mazda3 Preferred adds a power moonroof, heated front seats and an 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat with 2-position memory.

The new Mazda3 Premium includes everything in the Mazda3 Preferred, plus:

  • 12-speaker Bose® premiums audio system
  • Shark fin antenna
  • Leather-trimmed seats
  • Mazda navigation system
  • Active Driving Display
  • Traffic Sign Recognition
  • Adaptive Front-lighting System

The 2021 Mazda3 2.5 Turbo and Mazda3 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus come with the 250-hp Mazda SKYACTIV®-G 2.5 Turbo engine and i-ACTIV® AWD as standard features. The Mazda3 2.5 Turbo model loses Traffic Sign Recognition and real leather trim, using leatherette instead. But the top-tier Mazda 3 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus adds those back in and gets more advanced safety features, including Rear Smart Brake Support, a 360° View Monitor and Traffic Jam Assist.

2021 Mazda3 Hatchback

The new Mazda3 Hatchback has features in line with the sedan but does not offer the base 2.0 model. Instead, the Mazda3 hatchback starts with the Mazda3 2.5 S and works its way up to the Mazda3 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus hatchback.

The design of the 2021 Mazda3 Hatchback is what will catch your eye. Its distinct style may have your passengers thinking they have stepped into something much more expensive. And, with the Mazda SKYACTIV®-G 2.5 Turbo engine, you will be zipping around the Bay Area’s curves and hills with confidence and control.

The 2021 Mazda3 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus hatchback also offers two Aero Kit options, adding a rear diffuser and side sill extensions as an option and the front air dam and rear roof spoiler as standard. Opt for 18-inch forged gloss-black wheels on any new Mazda3 model.
