The 2019 Mazda3 Sedan and Mazda3 Hatchback gas mileage ratings are tough to beat when compared to the competition. With easy-going vehicle dynamics and impressive engine power, the Mazda3 is a great pick for drivers who are eco-conscious but want a little oomph on Sarasota drives. Below, learn about the Mazda3 engine specs and EPA mileage ratings.

Mazda3 Sedan Engine & Gas Mileage

The Mazda3 Sedan trim levels are equipped with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine. Here are the EPA estimates for each 2019 Mazda3 4-Door trim level:

Mazda3 Sedan Engine Specs

  • Engine type: SKYACTIV®-G1 2.5L DOHC 4-cylinder with VVT
  • Horsepower: 186 hp @ 6000 rpm
  • Torque: 186 lb-ft @ 4000 rpm

Mazda3 Trim Level Gas Ratings

  • Mazda3: Up to 26 mpg city/35 mpg highway*
  • Mazda3 Select Package: Up to 26 mpg city/35 mpg highway*
  • Mazda3 Preferred Package: Up to 26 mpg city/35 mpg highway*
  • Mazda3 Premium Package: Up to 27 mpg city/36 mpg highway*

Mazda3 Hatchback Gas Mileage

Although larger than the Mazda3 4-Door, the Mazda3 Hatchback maintains the same 186 hp as the Mazda3 Sedan. The Mazda3 Hatchback fuel efficiency is also respectable:

  • Mazda3 Hatchback: Up to 26 mpg city/35 mpg highway*
  • Mazda3 Preferred Package: Up to 26 mpg city/35 mpg highway*
  • Mazda3 Premium Package: Up to 26 mpg city/35 mpg highway*


SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY is the not-so-secret engine technology that Mazda Models utilize to balance great power with superior gas mileage. Vehicles with SKYACTIV®-G, such as the Mazda3 compact sedan and 5-door Mazda Hatchback, use a naturally aspirated combustion engine that compresses the air/fuel mixture at a rate of 14.0:1. This results in an efficiency increase of around 15%.
