2014 Mazda Mazda3 OverviewThe all new Mazda3 comes with one of two engine choices, both utilizing 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, a fairly high number for a compact. Despite its power, the Mazda3 is still able to achieve up to 40 mpg on the highway with the more powerful engine when equipped with Mazda's i-ELOOP regenerative braking system. The more powerful 2.5L engine is available only with a 6-speed automatic.
The Mazda3 is available in two body styles, sedan or 5-door hatchback, while each body style is available in several different trims. The most basic trim, the Mazda3 i SV is available only as a sedan. The rest of the trims, Sport, Touring and Grand Touring are available with either body style. The larger 2.5L engine is only available on Touring and Grand Touring models.
The Mazda3 i SV may be the least expensive trim available, but it does come with some significant features, further increasing the value quotient of the vehicle. Standard features include power door locks and windows, 16-inch wheels, keyless entry, push-button ignition, body colored door handles, air conditioning and power-folding external mirrors.
Sport trims are available in either body style and come standard with body colored outside mirrors, cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity, illuminated steering wheel controls, a 60/40 split rear folding seat and a tachometer.
The Touring trim adds heated outside mirrors with turn signal indicators, a leather steering wheel and shifter, a rear armrest and cup holder and a blind spot warning system. Also available on the touring trim is the Technology package, which adds a 7-inch full color, touchscreen display, a navigation system, a rear view camera, a 9-speaker sound system, two USB ports, voice recognition, internet and satellite radio integration and a compartment for sunglasses. Any buyers who order the Mazda3 s Touring with the more powerful 2.5L engine will get all of the features included in the technology package as well as a few extra goodies like bi-xenon headlights, fog lights, 18-inch alloy wheels, a 6-way power adjustable driver's seat and steering wheel mounted paddle shifters.
The Grand Touring trim adds leatherette seating into the equation along with a moonroof and heated front seats. Like the Touring trim, buyers opting for the more powerful engine will get even more features in Grand Touring form. Items such as automatic headlights and windshield wipers, an auto-dimming mirror and leather seats come standard on Grand Touring trimmed Mazda3 s models.
Safety features are plentiful and include six standard airbags, anti-lock brakes, stability control and traction control. The Mazda3 also features a collapsible steering column to help minimize damage in front end collisions and a hill-start system to minimize rollback when starting on a hill. Optional safety features include rear view cameras, a blind spot warning system and Smart City Brake Support, a system that uses a laser to detect forward collisions.
2014 Mazda Mazda3 Model Changes
The Mazda3 gets a complete redesign for 2014. The "big smile" grill has been replaced with a more serious, if still "pleased," front end, while the rest of the car receives a thoroughly modern and quite unique reworking. A new engine at the top of the model range has been added, replacing the old 167-horsepower unit, while a regenerative braking system has also been introduced to aid fuel economy.
2014 Mazda Mazda3 Value
Mazda's goal with the Mazda3 has always been to offer the most fun to drive compact car on the market. The Mazda3 directly competes with some of the best selling cars on the road including the Honda Civic, the Toyota Corolla and the Hyundai Elantra. With a base price below $17,000 the Mazda3 is competitively priced while still maintaining enough upscale features to not feel like an economy car. With a sportier and more direct driving feel than its competitors, the Mazda3 is able to do everything typically asked of a compact, while still putting a smile on the face of drivers.
