The 2018 Mazda3: Drive One of the Best

Available as a four-door sedan or a five-door hatchback, the 2018 Mazda3 is the ultimate driver’s car – a truism that is typically used when describing far more expensive automobiles. And the 2018 Mazda3 model’s value isn’t just in its sublime performance: it’s also found in its exceptional safety ratings (including a Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS), its impeccably crafted interior, and its premium features, many of which (i.e. adaptive headlights, road-sign reader) are class exclusives.

Some automakers with sedan/hatchback combos only offer certain trims with specific body styles, but not this four-wheeled beauty. In fact, buy a 2018 Mazda3 near Lakewood, WA, and you’ll have three terrific trims to choose from, regardless of which body style you prefer. The entry-level 2018 Mazda3 Sport, midrange 2018 Mazda3 Touring, and top-line 2018 Mazda3 Grand Touring are all exceptional automobiles, differentiated in large part by their engines.

The 2018 Mazda3 Sport utilizes a 2.0-liter 4C engine capable of 155 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque, while the upper-tier trims get a 2.5-liter 4C engine that outputs 184 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque. Both engines pair with front-wheel drive (FWD) and either a standard six-speed manual transmission or an optional six-speed automatic gearbox.

Every trim also features top-notch standard amenities like dual USB ports, low-speed forward collision warning, and the MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment platform with a seven-inch touchscreen. The two high-end trims also offer convenience features like heated front seats and dual-zone automatic climate control.
