Mazda3 Engine

Explore the Road for Miles

When it comes to selecting your next commuter sedan, you’ll want a vehicle that allows you to cruise down the freeway for hundreds of miles before needing to refuel. Both the Mazda3 and Audi A3 offer standard motors with impressive fuel economies—making it a good place to start our comparison.

Stay on the road longer with the SKYACTIV®-G 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine in the Mazda3. It features Advanced Direct Injection to create an EPA-estimated 26 MPG city and 35 MPG highway[1]—helping you sail past gas stations on your commute.

Meanwhile, you may find yourself making more stops to refuel behind the wheel of the A3, since it’s less efficient with an EPA-estimated 22 MPG city and 30 MPG highway.

Additionally, the Mazda3 provides significantly more cargo space to fit your briefcase or weekend luggage with a spacious 13.2-cubic-foot trunk. It might be a tight fit for all your groceries in the Audi A3, though, with only 10 cubic feet of cargo space.

Mazda3 Safety

Cruise Around with Added Security

To help you power through your morning commute with added confidence, the Mazda3 comes with the following advanced safety systems:

  • Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go: Maintains a set following distance and speed between you and the car ahead.
  • Lane Departure Warning System: Warns when you may be drifting out of your intended lane.
  • Lane-keep Assist: Provides minor steering corrections to prevent you from exiting your lane.

While the Audi A3 does have comparable safety features, you’ll have to upgrade to a higher trim to make them available. However, with the Mazda3, you’ll be treated to these amenities in every trim level.
