2016 MAZDA3: With more than 4.5-million produced since the debut of the 2004 model, the Mazda3 lineup for 2016 builds upon its success with upgraded equipment and cutting edge technologies. Available in four-door and five-door body configurations, the '16 Mazda 3 is offered in Mazda3 i Sport, i Touring and i Grand Touring trim levels. Along with the 155-horsepower SKYACTIV-G 2.0L four-cylinder, there is the 2.5L that delivers 184-hp. Depending on model designation; the power plants are matched with a six-speed manual gearbox or six-speed automatic transmission. The 2.5L engine can be ordered with the six-speed auto with i-Eloop for maximum performance. All '16 Mazda3s are front-wheel drive and come with push-button ignition, remote keyless entry, brake-energy regeneration, active grille shutters and a rearview camera. A host of standard and available features include leather seating surfaces, auto on/off headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, power moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a nine-speaker Bose sound system. The '16 Mazda3's latest hi-tech safety innovations are adaptive cruise control blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, and forward collision warning with automatic pre-collision braking at low speeds. High-end materials, sleek dashboard styling and pleasant seating depict the five-passenger interior, and when required, the sedan's trunk can haul 11.4 cu. ft. of cargo, while the hatchback increases available room to 17.1 cu. ft. with folded rear seating.
