Unlike Any Other Sports Car You've Seen Before

Sharp edges that cut right to the core are complemented by bold angles that demand attention. The design of the anticipated 2021 Mazda3 is refreshingly unique and fierce. Although this sedan is ferocious in design, it is not intended to be a performance vehicle strictly. Contrary to popular belief, it was not developed to replace the Mazdaspeed 3. Yet, it does offer luxury-level design elements. Sporting a charismatic hatchback, the Mazda3 is an all-new sight to set your eyes on for this automaker's 2021 model rollout.

Keep Your Options Open with Multiple Powertrain Selections

Despite its distinctive look, the Mazda3 is better known for its powertrain options than immense power generation when navigating around Santa Maria. Mimicking its predecessors, the CX-5, CX-9, and 6, the base engine for this model is a standard 2.5L I-4. This new engine option is a new addition to those offered by the 2020 model. Capable of producing up to 250hp and 320lb-ft of torque, this engine is not for the weak. This turbo option takes the Mazda3 to a whole new level.

This automaker places quite a bit on emphasis on the engine options that are offered for the 2021 model of the Mazda3. These options include a naturally aspirated 2.0L 4-cylinder, a naturally aspirated 2.5L 4-cylinder, and a potential 2.0L Skyactiv-X 4-cylinder.

Not only is the variety of engine options that this Mazda has to offer impressive, but this hatchback also offers several transmission selections that make for new pairs. Although the six-speed automatic is standard for most trim levels, a six-speed manual transmission makes its appearance in the 2.5S Hatchback Premium model.

Drivability and Response

They say that the character of a vehicle closely matches the personality of its driver. If this is true, what would a Mazda3 say about its San Luis driver? As a compact hatchback, the Mazda3 is a vehicle that demands attention and is responsive to even the smallest changes. Quick reaction, a peppy engine, and a zesty attitude speak volumes about the drivability of the Mazda3. Perfect for zipping around crowded city streets and maneuvering around tight Obispo corners, drivers can expect this vehicle to be optimal for navigating around Lompoc.

Flawless Design Inside and Out

For most, it does not come as a shock that the aesthetically pleasing Mazda3 has been awarded World Car Design of the Year. A cabin adorned with premium materials is surrounded by a sleek, curvaceous body, almost to a fault. Even the base level and lower level trims offer a plethora of high-end features, and these design elements only intensify as Arroyo Grande and Nipomo buyers go up in trim level selections.

The 2021 Mazda3 offers five different trim levels to choose from. These models are comprised of:

  • Base
  • Select
  • Preferred
  • Premium
  • Premium Plus

Starting at just over $20,000 MSRP, the 2021 Mazda3 increases in price until it reaches $30,000 MSRP. Considering the concept, design, and luxury feel of this hatchback, this auto is a real deal for the cost it entails.
