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.

2022 Mazda Mazda3 Preview

Joel Patel
Automotive Editor - December 8, 2021

Model Preview

Having recently been redesigned in 2019, the 2022 Mazda Mazda3 is expected to be a carryover model for the upcoming year. Since coming out with a fully updated model, the Mazda3 has received more standard safety features, a new turbocharged engine, a new base engine, and new trim levels. After getting a variety of changes in 2021, the 2022 Mazda3 should arrive without any significant changes.

When the Mazda3 arrived in 2019 as a fully redesigned vehicle, it brought an upscale design with it that will continue for the 2022 model year. Both the sedan and hatchback body styles share the same handsome styling with large grilles, sharp headlights, slim taillights, and prominent exhaust outlets. The hatchback is arguably the better-looking version, featuring a more athletic design with a thick C-pillar.

The interior of the 2022 Mazda3 is offered with features that competitors don’t have, like leather upholstery, a standard 8.8-inch screen, a 12-speaker Bose audio system, and a head-up display. Push-button start, rearview camera, Bluetooth, electronic parking brake, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and LED head and taillights come standard. A matte-finish grille and 16- to 18-inch silver, gray, or gloss black aluminum-alloy wheels are also available depending on the trim.

Each trim has a list of standard or available features. Everything from dual climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and mirrors with memory positioning, to eight-way power driving seats with lumbar support, heated door mirrors, and more.

Mazda Mazda3

The expanded powertrain lineup that Mazda introduced last year should continue to be available for the 2022 model year. Three Skyactiv-G engines will be available for the compact vehicle as well as two drivetrains. The sedan comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 155 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque as standard.

Hatchback models come with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that’s rated at 186 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque. That engine is optional on the sedan. Both the sedan and hatchback are offered with a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder that pumps out up to 250 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque. All engines are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and come with front-wheel drive, except for models with the turbocharged engine, which come with all-wheel drive.

Every Mazda3 comes with a lengthy list of standard i-Activsense safety features. Lane departure warning, automatic high-beam assist, Mazda Radar Cruise Control, forward collision warning, lane-keeping assist, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, a driver condition monitor are standard. Available features include rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive headlights, and blind-spot monitoring. Mazda tops this off by making Connected services free for three years, giving customers the ability to monitor and stay up to date on the state of their vehicle using the MyMazda app.

Pricing & Release Date

Mazda hasn’t given the official release date, but it has stated that models will begin to arrive at dealerships this winter.

In contrast, the automaker has made a number of announcements about its SUV lineup. For 2022, a new model called the CX-50 will be sold alongside the CX-5. Now that the Mazda6 has been discontinued, this makes the Mazda3 the brand's only passenger car apart from the Miata. Larger SUVs like the CX-70 and CX-90 are planned down the line.

Pricing for the 2022 Mazda3 has been revealed to start at $20,800 and rises from there up to $34,400 depending on trim and model version. These prices do not include the destination fee of up to $1,060.

The compact Mazda3 competes against the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, and Hyundai Elantra.
