Three engines on the menu 

First, the entry-level Mazda3 GX and GS models are powered by a 2.0 L Skyactiv-G 4-cylinder engine that produces 155 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque. 

Then, as an option on the Mazda3 GS and standard on the GT, there’s a 2.5 L engine developing 186 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. Finally, you can opt for a Mazda3 Turbo with even more power, 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque. 

The sedan’s 2.5 L engines are exclusively paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission with a manual mode. The 2.0 L engine can also be combined with a 6-speed manual transmission. 

A Mazda3 AWD is also available with the GS and GT rims, which feature optional all-wheel drive. The i-Activ technology uses sensors that monitor driving conditions 200 times per second. 

Regardless of the season, this gives your Mazda3 the control and stability you need. Driving pleasure is one of the Mazda advantages, and the sedan is no exception. Come and test drive a Mazda vehicle in Chicoutimi!
