Mazda3 Gas Mileage and Performance Specs  

Sharp handling and an exceptionally comfortable ride are the hallmarks of the Mazda brand, and two things the Mazda3 upholds. Its four trim levels each are equipped with a SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, ensuring a confident level of power across the board.

Capable of producing 186 horsepower, this is one compact sedan able to punch well above its weight class. Drivers can choose between a SKYACTIV®-Drive 6-speed sport automatic with front-wheel drive or i-ACTIV AWD® for extra road-gripping stability. Despite its available all-wheel drivetrain, the Mazda3 maintains its fuel-sipping tendencies:

Mazda3 Gas MileageDriving a Mazda3 should be more than just getting between Point A and Point B. Driving should be an experience that stimulates your senses. That’s why each sedan is carefully engineered to provide a holistic, human-centered approach to your everyday drive.

Through carefully controlling the amount of engine torque sent to each tire, the SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control helps create a seamless relationship between the driver’s steering and the vehicle’s movement. The result is a compact that feels light yet firmly gripped to each bend and curve in the road.

Mazda3: Interior Space

Perfect for city drivers and road trippers alike, the Mazda3 makes great use out of every square inch of its 92.8 cubic feet of passenger volume. Boasting 42.3 inches of legroom up front, even taller drivers will have no problem settling in for a long stretch of highway driving.

In back, drivers can fit all sorts of bulky items inside its 13.2 cubic feet of cargo space. From three pieces of heavy luggage to a beach umbrella, chairs, and cooler, this is a compact built to fit your active life.

Getting the Most Out of Your Mazda3 Gas Mileage

Despite this compact’s already impressive driving range and ability to lessen your trips to the pump, there are several things you can do as a driver, including:

  • Mazda3 Gas MileageCheck Your Tire Health. Underinflated or damaged tires can suck your fuel-efficiency, not to mention cause harm to things like your brakes, suspension system, and more.
  • Limit Heavy Loads. Carrying lots of weight in the trunk puts extra burden on your engine, often causing your MPG rating to drop.
  • Change Your Oil. It’s recommended that you completely change your engine’s motor oil and filter every 5,000-7,000 miles to maintain its overall performance and efficiency.
