Here are the EPA estimates for each 2020 Mazda3 4-Door trim level:

  • MAZDA3: Up to 26 mpg city/35 mpg highway*
  • MAZDA3 Select Package: Up to 26 mpg city/35 mpg highway*
  • MAZDA3 Preferred Package: Up to 26 mpg city/35 mpg highway*
  • MAZDA3 Premium Package: Up to 27 mpg city/36 mpg highway*


Although the Mazda3 5-door offers more cargo room than the Mazda3 4-Door model, this version still earns very similar fuel-efficient ratings for both city and highway conditions. These include:

  • MAZDA3 hatchback: Up to 26 mpg city/35 mpg highway*
  • MAZDA3 Preferred Package: Up to 26 mpg city/35 mpg highway*
  • MAZDA3 Premium Package: Up to 26 mpg city/35 mpg highway*


New Mazda3 models come equipped with a peppy and efficient 186-hp Skyactiv®-G 2.5L DOHC 4-cylinder engine with variable valve timing. And of course, many of our customers in and around Lexington ask us, “what is Skyactiv® Technology?”

Mazda cars, crossovers, and SUVs equipped with Skyactiv®-G engines, such as the Mazda3, use a naturally aspirated combustion engine that compresses the air/fuel mixture at a rate of 14.0:1.

But what does this mean, and how does that help you Mazda3 MPGs? A high-compression Skyactiv-G® engine ensures complete combustion of your fuel, meaning you get more miles out of every gallon! This results in an efficiency increase of around 15%.
