5 reasons to buy the 2021 Mazda Mazda3

1. Well-appointed inside and out

Whether you opt for the 2021 Mazda3 base 2.0 trim, the mid-range 2.5 S, or the range-topping 2.5 Turbo, you'll find that this sedan is generously equipped. Standard equipment on this model's base trim includes everything from rain-sensing windshield wipers and an 8.8-inch touchscreen display to an eight-speaker sound system and LED headlights.

2. All-wheel drive on some models

Finding a sedan with all-wheel drive is pretty rare, but the 2021 Mazda3 offers it on some models. Specifically, the mid-range 2.5 S trim on the 2021 Mazda3 was available with an all-wheel-drive upgrade on its 2.5L four-cylinder engine when it was sold as new. If you live in an area that sees icy winters or otherwise adverse road conditions throughout the year, having a sedan with all-wheel drive can give you some additional traction and control behind the wheel.

3. Standard driver-assistance suite

The 2021 Mazda Mazda3 also comes standard with a suite of driver-assistance features on every trim. This suite includes features such as frontal collision mitigation, lane-keep assist, and automatic high beams. It also includes adaptive cruise control, which will automatically adjust to help you maintain a consistent distance between you and the vehicle in front of you.

4. Available turbocharged engine

Looking for a Mazda turbo? A turbocharged engine is standard on the Mazda3 2.5 Turbo trim. This turbocharged 2.5L four-cylinder engine puts out 227 hp and comes standard with all-wheel drive for a little extra kick behind the wheel. Meanwhile, a 2.0L four-cylinder or 2.5L four-cylinder engine is standard on every other 2021 Mazda3 model.

5. Sleek and sporty styling

There's a lot to love about the stylish and sporty design of the 2021 Mazda3. With its bold front grille and sharp exterior styling, the 2021 Mazda3 will turn heads on the road. If you're looking for something even sportier, the 2021 Mazda3 is also available in a hatchback body style on some trim levels—so it may be worth checking one out as you shop around.
