It putsLanthrop and Turlock drivers in command of up to 155 hp and 150 lb-ft for impressive acceleration and handling, all while making up to 28 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway with its 6-speed automatic transmission.

The Mazda3 Grand Touring comes with a 2.5L four-cylinder capable of up to 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque, so it’s the better choice for drivers who demand superior performance. Efficiency does dip to to 27 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway with the 6-speed automatic transmission, but those numbers are still impressive, especially given its performance
