Pricing and Fuel Economy for the New 2014 Mazda3 Leaked
The Mazda3 has long retained its reputation as an affordable, fuel-efficient option in the subcompact class. Now, an aggressive new design is redefining this classic name, making it one of the year’s most anticipated releases. Most noticeably, the “Mazda smile” shape has been wiped from the Mazda3’s face and replaced with a bolder looking grille that echoes the look of the highly successful 2014 Mazda6.
According to Mazda, the base MSRP of the 2014 Mazda3 will be $16,945, keeping the model in its traditional price range. This number goes up according to the driver’s choice of trim level and options.
The 2014 Mazda3 is available with two different engine options, a 155 hp SKYACTIV-G 2.0L and a 184 hp SKYACTIV-G 2.5L. Drivers with the 2.0L can achieve an estimated 41 mpg fuel economy on the highway. Besides this revised drivetrain and the stunning new design, the 2014 Mazda3 will also deliver a full range of modern features including push button start, steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters, Bluetooth handsfree calling, a power moonroof, side mirror turn signals, daytime running lights, and more.
Expect Strong Safety Features
The 2013 Mazda3 was awarded Top Safety Pick status by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. If Mazda’s signature attention to safety carries through (we expect it will), the 2014 Mazda3 will almost certainly receive similar recognition. Aside from a rock-solid body and a full set of airbags, we’re also expecting the 2014 Mazda3 to include active safety features like dynamic stability control and a blind spot monitoring system.
