The 2020 Mazda 3 is one of those small car models that could easily attain an above of its class weightage not because of its upmarket interior, but mainly because of its excellent handling responses that get still better when let it run with all four of its wheels.
A famous auto critic whom we met at the Phoenix Mazda dealership showroom opined that only a few small car models he has explored so far could balance so well between frugality and practicality, while providing its users this much performance verve that the 2020 Mazda 3 models can ensure. The 2020 Mazda 3 is one compact car model that can be ordered either in the garbs of sedans or as hatchbacks. However, all of the 2020 Mazda 3 models are powered by a handful of inline-4 engines that again are free to be paired from the bunches of several automatic and manual transmissions, while the drivetrain can be set either as front-wheel or all-wheel drives.
If it is making you curious, why Mazda has to offer the 2020 3 series models in so many powertrain variations, we remember what we learned from few auto critics said. According to them, one of the major aims of Mazda to do so is alluring different types of drivers to fulfill their driving wishes, while the other reason could be to cater the different tastes of the buyers from all walks of life.
The 2020 year edition of Mazda 3 sedan models are queued up as base, Select, Preferred, and Premium trim levels, while the hatchback model series skip the Select trim.
The 2.5-liter inline-4 engine that is rated at 186 horsepower can be seen performing with unusual eagerness. It proves itself to be more powerful than what is required for a compact car as small as the 2020 Mazda 3 model.
Drive and Ride Experience
The above said engine drives the 2020 Mazda 3 models towards delivering memorable rides, while the ones sitting behind the wheels can get engrossed in its tasteful handling responses. The 6-speed automatic transmission that is set as the standard one on all of the 2020 Mazda 3 model trims except the Premium hatchback, makes handling the road challenges easier to conquer.
On the other hand, the 6-speed manual gearbox pairing the Premium model engines are highly appreciated even by the worst of auto critics for delivering the right amount of power to standard set front wheels, but when it carries the power to the optionally set four wheels, the performance of the 2020 Mazda 3 models reaches an ecstatic level.
At this point we must mention that fuel economy attained by this powertrain combination makes yet another big reason for its swell selling as it scores an EPA rated mileage of 30 mpg from a combined trip that drives through both city roads and highways.
As heard from the recent buyers of the 2020 Mazda 3 model from the Mazda dealer Phoenix, it is a sedan that delivers creamy smooth rides every time it is taken out on long hour drives.
