Among the biggest changes made to the 2019 Mazda3 has been with its performance output. For the new model year, Mazda has chosen to swap out the previous powertrain with its tried-and-true SKYACTIV®-G 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that is mated to the SKYACTIV®-Drive six-speed automatic transmission for all of its available trim grades. It will produce 186 horsepower and 187 pound-feet of torque. On the other end of the spectrum is the 2019 Nissan Versa. Nissan has chosen to equip its compact sedan with a naturally aspirated 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine attached to a five-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission, making less than 110 horsepower.
Even with this vast disparity in performance output, the 2019 Mazda3 is more than able to keep pace with the Versa in fuel economy. The difference in fuel efficiency scores of the base powertrain for both sedans is about one-mile per gallon. Additionally, the 2019 Mazda3 can be available with all-wheel-drive, where the 2019 Nissan Versa cannot.
