2021 Mazda 3 Revives the 2.0-Liter Base Engine Option
The 2021 Mazda 3 2.5 Turbo with 2021 horsepower could attract our passionate strings – or simply appeal to 3 buyers looking for more punch – but the new 155-horsepower entry-level four-cylinder engine in the compact model is likely to pull on certain portfolios. Cost-conscious of small cars, rejoice. The Mazda 3 again welcomes a 2.0-liter engine under its hood after removing the powertrain after the 2018 model year.
Limited to the style of the sedan, the resurrected version 2.0 (and aptly named) exchanges the 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 186 horsepower of the 2.5S model for less grunt and a surely lower starting price. The entry cost of the model remains unknown, although we expect the next 2.0 sedan to underestimate today’s entry level 3, which stands at $ 22,445, by a few hundred dollars, thus bringing the base price of the 3 plus. line with competitors such as the Honda Civic, Nissan Sentra and Hyundai Elantra.

However, compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is particularly lacking. To add these features, buyers will have to upgrade to the more powerful 2.5S version, which also opens the door to other elements of comfort and convenience such as all-wheel drive, a blind spot monitoring system, a proximity key. , an automatic dual-zone air conditioning and leatherette seats.
Do you want to row your own gear? Then you will have to spend the piece to add the premium Premium package to a front-wheel drive tailgate. With its optional six-speed baton, the Premium package includes a dashboard navigation system, a 12-speaker Bose audio system, a head-up display, leather surfaces and paddle shifters on fitted models an automatic transmission.
No matter what is hidden under its hood, the Mazda 3 2021 will be released at dealerships this fall. It’s up to you to decide if your heart attracts you to the 2.5 Turbo or if your finances force you to enter the 2.0 sedan.
