Next up, you’ll find the Touring trim. In addition to getting the entire Preferred Equipment package as standard, this mid-level trim comes with the following features:
If you want a Bose stereo system, satellite radio, dual-zone climate control, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror, then you can opt for the available Popular Equipment Package. The Mazda3 s Touring adds a more powerful engine and more style and performance in the form of 18-inch alloy wheels, a stylish black grille insert, paddle shifters, a specialized digital speedometer, and a heads-up display.
Finally, you have the top trim, the Grand Touring, which gives you everything from the Popular Equipment Package and extra features like:

The 2016 Mazda3 is proof that precise engineering can inspire performance and generate fuel savings, thanks to the exclusive Mazda SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY. In addition to its responsive steering and engaging dynamics, you have a couple of downright exciting powertrains to choose from.The base engine on the Mazda3 is the Mazda3 i powertrain, an impressive 2.0L four-cylinder that generates a confident 155 hp and 150 lb-ft of torque. It comes paired to a six-speed manual or automatic transmission and achieves an impressive EPA-estimated 41 mpg highway/30 mpg city.
Drivers looking for more power will find it in the Mazda3 s powertrain, which is a 2.5L inline-four that’s also offered with the six-speed automatic or manual and achieves a commanding 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque. You won’t find these numbers on most compact sedans at this model’s price point. In spite of the power increase, this engine still earns an EPA-estimated 40 mpg highway/29 mpg city with the available i-Eloop braking system.
