Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2023 Mazda Mazda3 Overview

Joel Patel
Automotive Editor - December 9, 2022

What's New

Mazda has made a few changes to the 2023 Mazda3’s powertrain lineup for the new model year. Last year’s base 2.0-liter four-cylinder has been dropped for 2023. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine takes over as the base motor and gets a 5-horsepower bump to 191 hp. The 2.5-liter engine also gains cylinder deactivation to be more efficient.

Other noteworthy changes include standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (finally) and available all-wheel drive with the Carbon Edition trim.

Choosing Your Mazda Mazda3

Mazda offers the compact Mazda3 in sedan and hatchback body styles. The sedan is available in six trims, while the hatchback is offered in seven. Both body styles are available in 2.5 S, 2.5 S Select, 2.5 S Preferred, 2.5 S Carbon Edition, 2.5 S Premium, and 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus trims. The hatchback has an extra 2.5 Turbo trim.

Pricing for the Mazda3 ranges from $23,615 to $35,065 (with destination) for the sedan. Most hatchback trims are $1,000 more than their sedan counterpart.

AWD is standard on the 2.5 S Premium and 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus sedans and available on the 2.5 S Carbon Edition and 2.5 S Premium hatchbacks for $1,400, but standard on the 2.5 Turbo, and 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus hatchbacks.

Engine Choices

The Mazda3’s engine lineup has been trimmed to two options for 2023. Both are 2.5-liter engines, but one has a turbocharger and a lot more power. At the time of writing, the EPA hasn’t released its official fuel economy figures for the sedan body style yet.

The turbocharged engine delivers serious performance, but it’s a hefty upgrade over the base engine. Plus, those looking for good fuel economy will prefer the updated 2.5-liter engine, which is expected to be more efficient than the turbo engine.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

All Mazda3s have seating for up to five people. The sedan offers up to 13.2 cubic feet of cargo space in the trunk, while the hatchback offers up to 20.1 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats in place.

Safety Features

Every Mazda3 comes with a driver attention monitor, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane departure warning, and lane keeping assist.

Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are standard starting with the Select trim. Traffic sign recognition, traffic jam assist, and a surround-view parking camera are standard on the 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus trim.

Connectivity

The Mazda3 comes with an 8.8-inch display, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, eight audio speakers, an HD Radio, Bluetooth, two USB ports, and voice command as standard. Available features include a 12-speaker Bose audio system, navigation, and satellite radio.

CarsDirect Tip

As much as we love the turbocharged engine with the 2023 Mazda3, the now standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine comes with more power and is more efficient than before. We consider that a major win, which has us leaning toward the Preferred trim. While the hatchback has a prettier design and a larger cargo area, it has massive blind spots that can make it hard to drive, so we recommend sticking with the sedan. For those in need of AWD, the S Premium is the best choice.
