What are the 2014 Mazda3 Hatchback Specs?
You can tell just by looking at it that the 2014 Mazda3 hatchback is an impressive car. Its sleek, smooth design really catches the eye, both when it is cruising down the road and parked. But when you dive into the 2014 Mazda3 hatchback specs, it is clear that this compact has a lot more to offer than just looks. In every category that matters, the new Mazda3 proves you don’t have to sacrifice anything by going with a smaller-sized car.
The 2014 Mazda3 hatchback has two available engines. The first, a 2.0L four-cylinder with SKYACTIV technology, can put out 155 hp and 150 lb-ft of torque. The second, a 2.5L four-cylinder , puts out 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque. For a smaller sized car, both of these engines provide plenty of power. Plus, the first one gets 40 mpg on the highway, while the second gets as high as 38 mpg.
This car may look small from the outside, but when you get inside, it is clear that there is plenty of room for everyone and everything. Passengers will enjoy 96.4 cubic feet of space to stretch out in and 20.2 cubic feet of space to pack gear into. With the second row of seating folded down, the amount of cargo space expands to 47.1 cubic feet. The 2014 Mazda3 also features advanced driver assistance and comfort technologies like the Mazda Connect infotainment System.
The Mazda3 goes the extra mile to protect people both inside and outside of the vehicle. Airbags wrap the entire cabin, including front side-impact airbags and side-curtain airbags. The headrests are designed to prevent whiplash, and all seats have a three-point seatbelt. Finally, and perhaps most significantly, the new Mazda3 has been designed with a SKYACTIV-body ring structure that can diffuse the energy of an impact. For all of these reasons, the 2014 Mazda3 was named an IIHS Top Safety Pick+.
