If you’re looking for a unique compact vehicle for daily commuting or family duties in Los Angeles, Redondo Beach, Long Beach, Hawthorne, or Inglewood, the 2024 Mazda3 Hatchback offers a stylish and desirable departure from the usual suspects. While sedans frequently win the majority vote, the Mazda3 Hatchback expertly exemplifies why this style is often the “go-to” option in markets outside the US. Therefore, if you have yet to think about a five-door hatchback in the past, think about the magnificent 2024 Mazda3 Hatchback and dare to be different.
Although small, the 2024 Mazda3 Hatchback is a member of a pretty substantial family and offers six outstanding trim options to suit various budgets and requirements. The most affordable model is now the entry-level 2.5 S Select Sport, and then the lineup goes to the 2.5 S Preferred, 2.5 S Carbon Edition, 2.5 S Premium, 2.5 Carbon Turbo, and range-topping 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus. The top trim level may have a long name, but it also has an impressive list of standard features and equipment. The interior and exterior of the Mazda3 Hatchback make significant contributions to the car’s substantial appeal. The exterior design is sporty and dynamic, with an undercurrent of quality and luxury that could surprise you at the price. The interior of the compact Mazda is equally impressive, with premium components and materials and a more upscale feel than many rivals.
As you might expect in this class, the 2024 Mazda3 Hatchback doesn’t bother with big, gas-guzzling engines and high-octane performance. Instead, the compact Mazda concentrates on refinement, practicality, style, and elegance. There are two powertrain options available that won’t let you down. Models up to, and including the Premium trim level, come standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 191 horsepower and 186 lb.-ft. of torque, which is an appropriate output for a car of its size.
However, if you do want something more powerful, the 2.5 Carbon Turbo and the 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus trim levels have a 2.5-liter turbo-four engine developing 227 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque on regular fuel. The power output increases to 250 horsepower and 320 lb.-ft. if you choose to fill up with premium petrol instead. Front-wheel drive coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission is the standard format up to the Preferred trim level. The S Carbon Edition, 2.5 Carbon Turbo, and 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus models get standard AWD. And if you want a manual transmission, you can have that with the 2.5 S Premium.
Automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, active lane control, and adaptive cruise control are all part of the standard safety offer of the 2024 Mazda3 Hatchback. And to remove any doubt about the upscale aspirations of the compact Mazda, all models get the brand’s Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go (adaptive cruise) feature. All that helps to explain why the 2024 Mazda3 Hatchback received the coveted Top Safety Pick+ designation from the IIHS and a five-star safety certification from the NHTSA.
Every model in the portfolio has massive appeal, but the top-of-the-line 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus is difficult to pass up if it suits your budget. You might mistake it for a high-end luxury car from a luxury manufacturer that costs much more if you don’t see the Mazda emblem. The turbo engine, AWD, 18-inch Black Metallic alloy wheels, perforated leather-trimmed sport seats, a Bose premium audio system, navigation, and traffic sign recognition are all standard features on this trim level, among many other upscale goodies.
The 2024 Mazda3 Hatchback is a sensational small car that’s every bit as versatile and practical as SUVs of a similar size. However, small SUVs rarely drive and handle like the Mazda3, so check it out today with a test drive from South Bay Mazda at 20626 Hawthorne Blvd, Torrance, Los Angeles, California.
