2022 MAZDA3 Preview

Mazda3 on RoadAt Mazda of Abington Mazda, we want to help Willow Grove, Willow Manor, and Glenside car shoppers understand what to expect from the 2022 Mazda3 when it arrives on our dealership lot.1 What makes this compact car special?

In this review, we’ll dive into everything we expect to see in the MY22 model and how it differs from the MY21 version. We welcome Pennsylvania shoppers to reach out to us to learn the latest information!

Minimal Changes for 2022

Mazda3 RearThe Mazda3 underwent a full redesign for MY19—just three years ago. As such, the 2022 model will likely be a carryover and not significantly different from the MY21 version. You can expect engines and in-car technology similar to what came before.

Since that full redesign, the Mazda3 has earned:

  • More standard safety features
  • A new turbo engine
  • A new base engine
  • A few new trim levels

Many of these changes debuted on the MY21 model. For that reason, we don’t expect too many additional alterations for the 2022 Mazda3.

2022 MAZDA3 Interior

Mazda3 InteriorThe most recent redesign of the Mazda3 brought with it a more upscale design. You’ll see that continued for 2022. It’s slated to offer the same minimalistic style it has in years past, with simple gauges, sleek controls, and a clean dashboard.

Not every compact sedan or hatchback offers the luxury-level features you’ll find in this premium model. Leather upholstery really adds to the elegance and is sure to impress passengers—and a standard 8.8-inch touchscreen looks sharp too.

A Bose® sound system and even a head-up display have graced this car in the past, and we expect to see them appear once more in the 2022 Mazda3.

Expanded Powertrain Lineup Stays

Mazda3 Sliding Glass RearThe Mazda3 grew its powertrain lineup for MY21, and we expect the engines it introduced last year to be available this year as well. In the MY22 Mazda3, look for three engines that can be configured with this compact car:

  • 2.0L 4-cylinder—155 HP and 150 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.5L 4-cylinder—186 HP and 186 lb-ft of torque
  • Turbo 2.5L 4-cylinder—250 HP and 320 lb-ft of torque

The 155-HP engine comes standard in the sedan, while the hatchback gets the 186-HP engine as standard (that engine is also optional in the sedan).

Meanwhile, both the sedan and hatchback offer the turbo engine as an available option.

All engines are expected to mate with a 6-speed automatic transmission, and all but the turbo engine feature front-wheel drive (the turbo earns all-wheel drive for more traction on slippery surfaces).

When Is the 2022 MAZDA3 Release Date?

We hope our Willow Grove, Willow Manor, and Glenside, PA, readers found this preview of the 2022 Mazda3 helpful! We expect this compact car to have a release date later this fall or possibly early in the winter.
