Being small does not mean being weak, as the subcompact 2023 Mazda3 sedan proves every day. For drivers who want the power, performance, and driving pleasure of other Mazda models but who don’t need the extra space of a crossover, the Mazda3 sedan is the perfect choice. This little car provides a powerful, fun driving experience in a compact but beautiful body.
The Mazda3 sedan is powerful, as illustrated by its new-for-2023 upgraded engine. This year, all Mazda3 sedan models come with a standard 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that boasts both 191 horsepower (hp) and EPA-estimated fuel efficiency of 28 miles per gallon (mpg) in the city and 37 mpg on the highway. This performance makes it feel like anything but standard.
A 250 hp turbo-charged engine is also available on the higher trim levels. In addition, the 2023 Mazda3 Sedan 2.5 S Premium edition and higher trim levels offer standard all-wheel drive, paddle shifters, and a custom-fit, 12-speaker Bose® surround sound stereo.
As far as technology, the 2023 Mazda3 sedan has quite a bit to offer drivers, including standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity with HD radio and an 8.8-inch, full-color center display. As an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick+, the 2023 Mazda3 sedan offers drivers peace of mind when behind the wheel, including top safety features like front and rear parking sensors, rear cross-traffic alert, and blind spot monitoring.
Like other members of the Mazda family, the Mazda3 four-door sedan is visually beautiful, taking full advantage of the KODO: Soul of Motion design philosophy and its clean lines and luxurious curves. Its profile is that of a standard sedan, as opposed to its brother the Mazda3 Hatchback, with a compact body length of 183.5 inches. The six trim levels of the Mazda3 come in up to six different colors, including the hard to miss Soul Red Crystal Metallic.
Although its exterior is certainly stunning, it’s the interior of the 2023 Mazda3 sedan that really sets this compact apart from other cars in its class. Top features include the fine materials and intuitive design of the cabin — all trim levels above the 2.5 S Select offer upgraded seat materials, and all models have an 8.8-inch full color center display. As for space, the Mazda3 offers 35.1 inches of rear legroom and 13.2 cubic feet of trunk space.
All Mazda3 sedans come with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, with a turbo option on the Mazda3 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus, which offers up to 250 horsepower (hp) and 320 pound-feet of torque. Notably, the Mazda3 comes in both front- and all-wheel drive (AWD) options, with manual transmission or paddle shifter technology available on all trims for added control. Mazda3 AWD options also come equipped with i-ACTIV® technology, designed to provide greater control or stability on the road in any conditions.
Similarly, the technology packaged within the Mazda3 sedan rivals much higher-priced vehicles thanks to the Mazda Connect Infotainment System paired with the MyMazda app. Thanks to Mazda’s long and generous partnership with Bose®, the top two Mazda3 sedan models, the 2.5 S Premium and the 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus, both offer custom-fitted 12-speaker Bose® audio systems as standard features.
The 2023 Mazda3 sedan was honored by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) as a Top Safety Pick+ and has already earned a five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for both frontal crash and rollover. In other words, the Mazda3 sedan is one of the safest compact cars on the road. The Mazda3 achieves this through a variety of top line safety features, including Mazda’s signature i-ACTIVSENSE® Safety Technology, front and rear parking sensors, and an automatic braking system.
In addition to these standard highlights, the 2023 Mazda3 sedan also offers drivers a variety of different features and benefits, such as the ability to tow up to 1,300 lbs. and fuel economy as high as 27 miles per gallon (mpg) in the city and 37 mpg on the highway. Another real benefit of the Mazda3 is its cost, although there are six total trim levels available for the 2023 Mazda3 sedan. The base trim 2.5 S starts at $22,550, and its highest level, the 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus, starts at $34,000.
