The 2018 Mazda3 is more than just a pretty face. Of course, this vehicle has sharp looks that are ready to turn heads, but its cabin also offers a premium oasis filled to the brim with technology. Add the fact that the 2018 Mazda3 is available as either a four-door sedan or a five-door hatchback, and you have a vehicle that will become whatever you want it to be, making your daily commute that much better.
Powerful SKYACTIV® Powertrain
In every Mazda3, you will find a SKYACTIV® powertrain that will make you fall in love with driving all over again. This powertrain technology creates a seamless driving experience thanks to Mazda’s SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control, which allows the system to adjust both power delivery and vehicle weight, keeping steering more precise and allowing you better control.
The standard SKYACTIV® engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that comes paired to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. With this set up, you will find the Mazda3 pumping out an impressive 155 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque. It also gets an equally impressive EPA-estimate fuel-efficiency rating of 27 mpg city and 37 mpg highway.*
Its second engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, which puts out more power with 184 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque. It has a fuel-efficiency rating of 25 mpg city and 34 mpg highway.*
While the SKYACTIV® powertrain technology is incredibly innovative, you can find even more innovations in the Mazda3 model’s cabin. There’s a range of standard and available features that will make even the most tech-savvy consumer happy. The MAZDA CONNECT™ keeps you entertained while you’re out on the road, allowing you to listen to your favorite music, while also making hands-free calls.
It’s easy to stay in control of this technology, too, thanks to the multi-function Commander control, which comes standard on all Mazda3 trims. This control is located on the center console and helps you control the functions on your 7-inch touchscreen with ease. With just a few turns and clicks, you can easily keep track of your audio, hands-free telephone features, and the available navigation system.
On higher trim levels, you will also find the Active Driving Display. This system allows you to keep track of important driver information by projecting it directly onto the windshield in front of you. By doing so, you no longer have to take your eyes off the road as you drive.
The 2018 Mazda3 is truly an excellent car, both as a sedan and as a hatchback, with a fun, sporty driving style and a cabin full of technology. Come try it out with a test drive at Bert Ogden Edinburg Mazda.
