2021 Mazda 3 2.5 Turbo

2021 Mazda 3 2.5 Turbo

Consumer Guide Automotive When the Mazda 3 lineup was redesigned for the 2019 model year, Mazda gave its sporty compact hatchback and sedan lots of new stuff: sleek new styling (with a striking bobtailed shape for the hatchback body style), new technology features, a notably more upscale look and feel, and, for the first time, the availability of all-wheel drive. What the 2019 Mazda 3 DIDN’T get, however, was more horsepower or a new engine—its sole powerplant was a 186-hp 2.5-liter 4-cylinder that was carried over from the previous-generation 3.

First Look: 2021 Mazda 3

2021 Mazda 3

Mazda has officially announced details on the updated 2021 Mazda 3, and there’s good news and a bit of bad news—at least for enthusiast shoppers. The good news is that there are two new-to-the-Mazda-3 engines available, including Mazda’s turbocharged 2.5-liter 4-cylinder. The bad news is for buyers who like to shift for themselves: a manual transmission is not available on that turbocharged engine.
