Detailed Review

The Mazda 3’s main selling point is how much fun it is to drive.  Whether you choose the 155-horsepower 2.0-liter inline-4 or the 184-horsepower 2.5-liter engine, or the 6-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission, you’ll get pleasing performance. They deliver pleasing performance and superior responsiveness than most compact cars in any combination.


The 2016 Mazda 3 has one of the greatest interiors in its class. Many of the Mazda 3’s competitors do not provide technologies like a head-up display, adaptive headlights, or adaptive cruise control.

Mazda takes it a step further by incorporating a touchscreen inside the display. Overall, it’s one of the more effective techniques available.


The Mazda 3 was fully revamped for the 2014 model year. It’s one of the most striking, current designs in its class. The hatchback “cab-back” style, which evokes rear-wheel-drive proportions, truly helps the design shine in ways that other compacts don’t.

Mazda’s “Kodo” design language, which debuted on the CX-5 crossover and Mazda 6 mid-size sedan, was adopted by the newest three. Despite its obtrusive appearance, the new design enhances aerodynamics.


Antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, active front head restraints, a rearview camera, front side airbags, and side curtain airbags are all standard on the 2016 Mazda 3. On Touring and Grand Touring models, a blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alerts is standard. 

The 3s Grand Touring’s available Technology package includes a lane departure warning system, forward collision warning, and Mazda’s Smart City Brake Support, a forward collision mitigation system that can automatically brake the car to a stop at low speeds if the driver fails to react to an impending collision.

Fuel Consumption

The 2016 Mazda 3 manages to outperform several models in this class, many of which have smaller engines and less power, even without turbocharging or hybrid systems.

The fuel consumption of the Mazda 3 is 5.8L/100km, and the highest fuel consumption is 6.2L/100km.
