3. Engine & Performance

Most of the Mazda 3 trims come with two engine options: A 2.5-liter inline-4 engine which comes in the base variants of all trims, and a 2.5-liter turbocharged engine which is seen only in the high-end trims.

    • The base 2.5-L inline-4 engine comes with both FWD and AWD drivetrains. This engine can deliver a horsepower of 191 hp. The drivers can avail a manual six-speed transmission if they opt for the front-wheel drive system, while the all-wheel drive system offers only a six-speed automatic transmission.
    •  The hatchback and sedan variants available in the UAE segment come with 2.0-liter Skyactive-G gasoline engines that are capable of producing a similar horsepower.
    • The 2.5-L turbocharged motor proves to be a much better option in terms of performance. This engine is capable of producing an impressive horsepower of 250 hp. You can hit 60 mph in just 5.6 seconds with this engine configuration.
    •   Both the hatchback and sedan variants of the car provide a very comfortable, smooth and refined riding experience. The well-built steering and suspension systems of the car help it perform well even on the rough terrain conditions and uneven roadways of Dubai.

4. Great Fuel-Efficiency

The fuel economy of Mazda 3 is pretty impressive. In the standard engine configuration, the sedan variant can achieve a mileage of 28 MPG (city) and 37 MPG (highway). With the AWD system, the turbocharged hatchback model gives a lower mileage of 23 MPG and 31 MPG respectively. On a 75-mph highway fuel economy route, the 2.5-Litre base engine with the AWD configuration gives an outstanding mileage of 41 mpg.

5. Elegant Exterior Design

Mazda covers a reliable warranty plan for both the sedan and hatchback variants of Mazda 3. It offers a limited warranty of three years (or 36,000 miles) and a powertrain warranty of five years (50,000 miles). This is a decent warranty plan but nowhere close to the 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain coverage provided by Hyundai or Kia. Furthermore, the brand doesn’t offer any complimentary scheduled maintenance during the warranty period, which is a major drawback in its service.

7. Stylish & Spacious Interior Build
