Trims and Features

The 2016 Mazda3 is divided into Mazda3 i and Mazda3 s versions based on the two available powertrains. From there, the model is split up into different trim levels. To begin, you have the base Sport trim, which is only available in the Mazda3 i version. Standard fare includes such features as:

  • Bluetooth phone and audio
  • Voice controls
  • A seven-inch touchscreen with smartphone integration
  • Internet radio capabilities
  • HD Radio
  • Cruise control
  • 16-inch wheels

Those looking for a bit more can opt for a Preferred Equipment group that adds premium cloth upholstery, a blindspot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alerts, and additional conveniences like automatic headlights and an armrest for backseat passengers.

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:

  • A sunroof
  • A spoiler
  • A leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Fog lights
  • Keyless ignition and entry

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:

  • Heated front seats
  • A navigation system
  • A power driver seat
  • Leatherette seat trim

Complete the march to the top with the Mazda3 s Grand Touring, which gives you a suite of style accents including xenon headlights, LED taillights, and premium leather upholstery. When you pick the Technology package you’ll get more efficiency via the exclusive Mazda i-Eloop regenerative braking system, as well as increased safety thanks to a lane departure warning system, adaptive cruise control, and more.

Performance and Fuel Economy

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.

  • Kelley Blue Book – “Anyone who thinks a compact car can’t be stylish, fuel-efficient, value-oriented, technologically advanced and a hoot to drive hasn’t met the Mazda3. Mazda’s small sedan and hatchback are all those things and more.”
