When shopping for a new ride in Los Angeles, Redondo Beach, Long Beach, Hawthorne, or Inglewood, consider options beyond SUVs, especially if you want something compact and economical. The 2024 Mazda3 Sedan is a stunningly stylish compact four-door car that demands attention. Armed with impressive engines and optional all-wheel drive, this bold compact sedan vehicle boasts a bold character matched by its quality and performance.
Although fewer options may be available in the compact car category today, the 2024 Mazda3 Sedan still eclipses its rivals. Its exterior design is sporty and classy, avoiding any stylistic choices that could cause unnecessary controversy. Even the most cost-effective models feature standard LED headlights and tail lights, which contribute to the overall upscale appearance of the compact Mazda sedan.
The lineup starts with the entry-level 2.5 S model, then moves on to the 2.5 S Select Sport, the 2.5 S Preferred, the 2.5 S Carbon Edition, the new Carbon Turbo, and the 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus as the most premium offering in the series. Lower trim levels are standard front-wheel-drive, but all-wheel-drive is standard equipment with the 2.5 S Carbon Edition, Carbon Turbo, and 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus models.
If its modest dimensions align with what you’re looking for, the 2024 Mazda3 Sedan is a car that delivers on many levels. The compact Mazda’s driving experience suits a broad spectrum of drivers, from those who take their driving seriously to those who want to get from one place to another. All variants provide responsive steering, excellent handling, and a ride that’s compliant and comfortable. If you do enjoy driving for the sake of driving, you’ll enjoy the fact the Mazda3 Sedan offers plenty of interaction between the driver and the vehicle that rival SUVs can struggle to achieve.
Most models are standard with a 2.5-liter inline-four engine that generates 191 horsepower and 186 lb.-ft. of torque, except for the top-of-the-line 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus. The 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus features a 2.5-liter turbo-four that develops 227 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque when operating on ordinary fuel. The use of premium fuel, on the other hand, brings these values up to 250 horsepower and 320 lb.-ft. of torque.
The cylinder deactivation technology employed by the base 2.5-liter engine contributes to the engine’s welcome fuel efficiency. The EPA rates front-wheel drive versions of the Mazda sedan at 28 mpg when driving in the city, 37 mpg on the highway, and 31 mpg in the combined cycle. With 26 mpg in the city, 35 mpg on the highway, and 30 mpg combined, the all-wheel-drive variants aren’t too far behind.
The safety records of the 2024 Mazda3 Sedan are equally impressive. The NHTSA has given it a five-star overall safety rating, and the full house gets completed with an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ rating. Several safety features, such as an Anti-lock Brake System with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution & Brake Assist, Dynamic Stability Control with Traction Control System, Smart Brake Support, Lane Departure Warning System, Lane-keep Assist, Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Driver Attention Alert, High Beam Control, and a Rearview Camera, are included as Standard Equipment across the lineup.
