Mazda Mazda3

Price $24,200 – $38,900
Fuel consumption 6.3 – 10.1 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 82%(view ratings)
The Mazda3 lineup includes two body styles (sedan and hatchback), four trim levels, two engines (a naturally aspirated 2.5-litre unit rated at 191 horsepower and a turbocharged version producing up to 250 horsepower with premium gasoline), a choice of FWD or AWD, as well as six-speed manual and automatic transmissions. Handling is arguably the best in the segment, but the relatively tight interior and the ever-increasing popularity of SUVs have affected the Mazda3’s sales in recent years.
