Check out this 2018 Mazda3 Hatchback review from Montrose Mazda to learn more about how this car can benefit your Bedford and Lorain area commutes.

2018 Mazda3 Hatchback Powertrain

The 2018 Mazda3 gives drivers the choice between two powerful engines. The standard engine is a SKYACTIV®-G 2.0L that generates 155 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque. If you're in the mood for an extra power kick, the SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L engine may be the one for you. This engine produces 184 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque.

Either engine can be paired with a SKYACTIV®-MT 6-speed manual transmission-for complete control over your driving experience-or a SKYACTIV®-DRIVE 6-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift and Sport mode. This transmission gives you the smooth shifting and engine efficiency of an automatic transmission while allowing you to take control when operating in a limited manual mode.

Depending on your engine and drivetrain options, you can achieve an EPA-estimated fuel economy range of 25-28 MPG city and 33-37 MPG highway.1

i-ACTIVSENSE® Safety Technology

While nothing compares to vigilant driving, the Mazda3 Hatchback includes several smart safety features that can help you stay aware of your surroundings.

The full available i-ACTIVESENSE® suite includes:

  • Mazda Radar Cruise Control
  • Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Lane Departure Warning System
  • Lane-Keep Assist

It also includes the Adaptive Front-Lighting System that helps you see around corners at night by pivoting your headlights with your car.

You'll have Smart Brake Support and Smart City Brake Support at your side, too, watching out for potential frontal collisions at both highway and city speeds. If a hazard is detected up ahead, the system begins charging the brakes for a faster response time and issues an alert. If necessary, the system will automatically apply the brakes to avoid or lessen an imminent impact.

Mazda3 Hatchback Interior

A big consideration when choosing the Mazda3 5-door is the interior space. The Mazda3 Hatchback offers a total cargo volume of 47.1 cubic feet with the rear seats down and 20.2 cubic feet of trunk space with the seats up.

In the driver's seat, you can stretch out with 42.2 inches of legroom and 38.6 inches of headroom. You'll also have the  comfort of available sport seats that contour to fit the body for a more relaxed ride, available in cloth, leatherette, or dual-stitched leather.

As you take control of the wheel, listen to your favorite tunes with the MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system, featuring Pandora® radio integration, SMS text message audio delivery and reply, Bluetooth® hands-free calling and audio streaming, and voice commands.

The infotainment system can be accessed through the 7-inch full-color touchscreen display, or the Multifunction Commander Control knob in the center console that lets you take command with a simple turn of the wheel.
