What's New in the 2020 MAZDA MAZDA3?

Which MAZDA3 is the Best?

We highly recommend the new Mazda3. Each potential buyer will have to decide whether the sedan or hatchback is preferable and if all-wheel drive is necessary, but we think most will be quite happy with either the Select or Preferred package. Find a Mazda3 for sale

How Much Does a 2020 MAZDA MAZDA3 Cost?

The 2020 Mazda3 5-seater compact car is available in sedan and hatchback forms.

The Mazda3 Sedan ($22,420) comes with 16-in alloy wheels, LED headlights and taillights, keyless entry and ignition, cloth upholstery, an 8.8-in infotainment display, a 7-in configurable driver information display, 60/40 split folding rear seats, Bluetooth phone and audio, an HD radio, two USB ports and an 8-speaker sound system. Also standard are lane-keeping assist and lane-departure warning, low-speed emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, driver attention monitor, auto high beams and blind spot monitoring.

The Mazda3 Hatchback ($24,520) has more standardized equipment to justify its higher price, such as 18-in alloy wheels, rain-sensing wipers, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, automatic dual-zone climate control and simulated leather seating surfaces, plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration.

Most of these additional features are available as options in the sedan. Other extras include AWD, a head-up display, leather upholstery, a power moonroof, adaptive LED headlights, power-adjustable heated front seats with driver's-side memory settings and a 12-speaker Bose audio system.

Trunk space for the sedan is 13.2 cu ft., about average for the class. The hatchback has 20.1 cu ft. of luggage area behind the rear seats, expanding to 47.1 cu ft. when those seats are folded down.

Competition

2020 MAZDA MAZDA3 vs the competition

2020 Honda Civic -- Multitalented and offering a wide range of choices. One of the top players in the compact car category.

2020 Hyundai Elantra GT -- High equipment levels for the price, comfortable, great warranty. Not so inspiring 2.0-liter engine.

2020 Subaru Impreza -- One of the few compact cars to have AWD, and it's standard. Low-power engine and droning continuously variable transmission is not a combination to relish.

2020 Toyota Corolla -- Reliable, well equipped, cheap to run. A new generation debuts for the 2020 model year that includes a hybrid model.

Used Audi A3 -- A 2015-2017 Audi A3 is roughly the same size as the Mazda3, but with more horsepower and features as well as available quattro all-wheel drive, diesel and hybrid engine choices.
