Rewarding Performance in the 2018 Mazda3 Hatchback & Sedan

In the 2018 Mazda3 lineup, there are two engines to choose from, both rewarding in their own right, though one is more powerful than the other. The Sport trim starts with a 2.0-liter SKYACTIV®-G 4-cylinder that serves up 155 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque, while the Touring and Grand Touring trims get a little more power from a 2.5-liter SKYACTIV®-G 4-cylinder rated at 184 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque.

While other automakers tend to opt for CVTs or automatics, the Mazda3 is built for drivers, which means both engines get a standard six-speed manual, though an automatic is available for either as well.
