    Since its debut in the automotive industry, Mazda has continuously worked to give drivers something remarkable behind the wheel. This remarkability defines every Mazda model and encompasses a dynamic driving experience, a premium cabin, and innovative technology. That trifecta characterizes the automaker's entire lineup and is especially apparent in models like the 2023 Mazda3.

    The Mazda3 does something few competitors have accomplished. It defies the standard of a segment that often forces drivers to settle for less. For example, rivals like the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla require drivers to sacrifice performance and luxury for practicality and affordability. For the Mazda3, this sacrifice isn't required, making it a hidden gem worthy of the spotlight.

    The 2023 Mazda3 delivers an engaging and dynamic driving experience characteristic of the Mazda name. At the same time, it's laden with innovative features and premium finishes that give it a clear advantage over its rivals and position it alongside more luxurious models. It also appeals to our need for variety and customization, with its sedan and hatchback variants satisfying distinct needs among drivers looking for the perfect Mazda3. It is even available in all-wheel drive for bad-weather performance.

    These components and the Mazda3's exceptional starting price make it a segment leader and prove Mazda is one of the most undervalued automakers in the industry. But what else does the 2023 Mazda3 offer, and what makes it so remarkable? From intuitive performance and a multi-trim lineup with seven unique options to an exceptional suite of cutting-edge technology, here's everything you need to know about the latest iteration of the extraordinary Mazda3.

    Dynamic and Engaging

    Mazda is well-known for giving drivers a dynamic and engaging experience behind the wheel. This remains true for the 2023 Mazda3, which eliminates the previously-standard 2.0L four-cylinder engine from its lineup. Instead, its heartbeat sees a noticeable increase in power courtesy of the now-standard Skyactiv-G 2.5L four-cylinder engine. The powerplant, which sees a small horsepower bump of its own for 2023, delivers 191 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque. It can be paired with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive and even offers a six-speed manual option in the hatchback variant.

    The Mazda3's dynamic performance is enhanced by functional components that give you more control and confidence in the driver's seat. Among these features is Mazda's unique G-Vectoring Control Plus system, which gives the car a tremendous advantage in the segment and is responsible for its remarkable handling. G-Vectoring Control Plus responds to your steering inputs, adjusting the engine's torque as needed. As the system works behind the scenes, it gives the Mazda3 a smoother and more natural ride while also making it incredibly responsive and engaging to drive at any speed.

    Turbocharged All-Wheel Drive

    The Mazda3's engaging demeanor is further invigorated when the car is outfitted with the Skyactiv-G 2.5L turbocharged engine and i-Activ all-wheel drive. The turbocharged power plant boosts the sedan's power output to an incredible 250 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque for impressive acceleration and smooth handling. All-wheel drive allows the car to put all this power to the ground, even when the roads get slippery. This exciting combination puts the 2023 Mazda3 in the same league as the BMW 330i xDrive or Mercedes-Benz C 300 4MATIC, but at a fraction of the price. With performance like that, no other model in its segment can compete.

  • Safety and Driver-Assist

    Outstanding Standard Technology

    The 2023 Mazda3 does something extraordinary by delivering exceptional value across its lineup; it keeps its price low but offers an outstanding array of features. Among these features are an expansive suite of standard safety and driver-assist tools that further distinguish the Mazda3 from competitors. These features are centralized in Mazda's i-Activsense suite and equip the car with a virtual spotter dedicated to helping you avoid a collision.

    The 2023 Mazda3 comes standard with i-Activsense tools like Smart Brake Support with Pedestrian Detection, Driver Attention Alert, Lane-Keep Assist, a Lane Departure Warning System, and Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go. These features lay the foundation of the suite, with each trim adding more technology. For example, the Mazda 3 Select adds Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, while the Premium trim comes with an Active Driving Display on the windshield, an Adaptive Front-Lighting system, and Traffic Sign Recognition.

    All the Features You Could Need

    The top-tier Mazda3 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus includes a complete suite of features. It upgrades the standard rearview camera to a 360-degree View Monitor, giving you a bird's eye view around the car. Front and rear parking sensors make parking the vehicle easier, while Smart Brake Support-Rear Crossing gives you confidence when navigating in reverse. This impressive technology can automatically apply the brakes to reduce damage or prevent a collision altogether.

    Traffic Jam Assist is one of the most advanced features in the Mazda3's i-Activsense suite. This technology works with Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go to enhance your time behind the wheel. Mazda's radar cruise control system works in stop-and-go traffic and can dramatically improve your commute during rush hour. Traffic Jam Assist takes this to the next level, enhancing the technology by providing low-speed steering assistance when traveling at speeds up to 40 mph.

    Stay Informed and Connected

    The 2023 Mazda3 has no shortage of innovative technology to keep you informed and connected wherever the road leads. This technology gives the Mazda3 a modern, digital cockpit centralized around the seven-inch LCD Display behind the steering wheel and the 8.8-inch center touchscreen display. The driver's display gives you a clear view of vital data, such as the trip odometer and computer, speed, fuel level, mileage, and more. On top-tier trims like the Premium, you can view this data on the windshield via the Active Driving Display.

    The sedan's expansive center display is home to the Mazda infotainment system, which gives you seamless access to your smartphone via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The display also offers Bluetooth capability and an available navigation system to help you calculate the most efficient route. Listening to your favorite music or hearing updates from the navigation system is enjoyable and easy, especially with the available Bose Premium Audio system that strategically positions 12 speakers throughout the cabin to deliver an immersive, concert-like experience to every seat. The sound and infotainment systems are complemented by a three-year subscription to SiriusXM Traffic & Travel Link, which provides current traffic and weather updates, fuel prices, parking information, and sports scores.

    Mazda Connected Services

    When you're not in the Mazda3, you will still have access to the car via Mazda Connected Services. Mazda gives you complimentary access to the service for three years, putting you in complete control of the Mazda3 via the MyMazda App on your smartphone. In addition, Mazda Connect gives you easy access to first responders and roadside assistance. The app lets you remotely start the engine, monitor diagnostics like oil health and tire pressure, and activate an available WiFi hotspot that transforms the Mazda3 into a mobile office or internet venue. You can even use the app to find where you parked your vehicle, a helpful tool when traveling in a new area.
