Reviewers from Autocar have found the following[***]:
Mazda's handsome family hatchback, the 3, updated for 2021. But for the addition of a standard-fit sunroof on higher trim-level versions, that update is concerned mainly with what's under the bonnet. The car offers a choice of two petrol engines, both with a pretty simple 24V, belt-driven, mild-hybrid assistance system.
The 2021 Mazda3 sedan has a new 2.0-liter base engine with 155 horsepower. The hatchback models only come with the upgraded 2.5-liter I4. A six-speed manual is available, but only on the top trim and only with front-wheel drive. The Mazda3 hatch has just over 20 cubic feet of space with its rear seats up.
Despite impressive on-paper figures, the 2021 Mazda3 Turbo acts more like a retired hot hatch that just wants to sit on the deck and grill all day. Its 2.5-liter turbocharged I4 puts out 250 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque with premium gas. The 6-speed automatic transmission's long gearing is geared toward non-sprightly situations.
Mazda's 2.5-liter turbocharged I4 makes a healthy 250 horsepower and 320 pound-feet. Turbo models come with a gloss black trim on the grille and front bumper, as well as 18-inch wheels. Even with the extra power, the Mazda3 Turbo isn't exactly quick.
