2015 Mazda 3 - Buy a New Car Online

First introduced in 2003 as a 2004 model, the Mazda3 is a compact car manufactured by the Mazda Motor Corporation in Japan. The entry-level hatchback or sedan has always been loaded with extra amenities and desirable features, that helped the Mazda3 stand out as a more sporty vehicle. The Mazda3 gained all of the expected technology and features over the year to keep up with the ever-evolving automotive market, but in 2014, the sporty car received a complete redesign with new trim levels, equipment, upgrades, and a more powerful engine.

 

Since its recent redesign, the Mazda3 has only seen minor updates, and the 2015 Mazda3 is no exception to that fact. The compact car is currently in its third generation, and is offered in several different trim levels, either as a sedan or hatchback variation. While each trim level offers great features, the best value lies in the mid-range Mazda3 Touring, which comes with a great list of standard features and amenities.

 

One of the elements that make the 2015 Mazda3 unique, is its impressive interior cabin, that is unlike any other on the market. The 2015 Mazda3 rounds itself out with the automaker’s advanced SkyActiv technology that not only helps the compact car gain overall efficiency, but is also helps set it apart from the competition.

SkyActiv technology is Mazda’s unique, ground-up approach to vehicle engineering. It works by allowing all major parts of a vehicle to work together, while achieving impressive fuel economy and driving performance. 

 

The 2015 Mazda3 is equipped with a 2.5-liter SkyActiv-G gasoline engine. This impressive configuration achieves an EPA-estimated 40 miles per gallon on the highway, and a powerful 184 horsepower. Even the toughest competition can’t compete with Mazda’s SkyActiv technology.

  • 2015 Subaru Legacy with 2.5-liter engine - EPA-estimated 36 mpg on the highway, and 175 horsepower

To help aid in overall efficiency, the Mazda3 has an available i-ELOOP regenerative braking system that helps to capture energy when the driver lifts their foot off of the accelerator. The stored energy is later used to power the car’s electrical components. Mazda3 models that are equipped with this technology, can expect a real-world fuel efficiency improvement by as much as five percent.

 

It is clear that the 2015 Mazda3 with SkyActiv technology is one of the most efficient vehicles in its segment, easily beating out the competition. For drivers who seek a fun to drive, sporty, efficient, and practical car, the 2015 Mazda3 is the clear choice among other vehicles in the same class.
