As always with Mazda, the 2014 Mazda3 will be available in three versions: GX, GS and GT. The 2014 Mazda3 GX will be offered from $ 15,995 while the GT model is available from $ 25 855. Between the two is the GS version and its starting price of $ 19 695.

Two engines both using SKYACTIV technology will be offered. The GX and GS models are powered by a four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine that sends 155 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque to the front axle. This is the same engine that is currently found in the 2013 Mazda3 GS-Sky. The GT version has a more powerful 2.5-liter SKYACTIV engine delivering 184 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque.

The GX and GS models come standard with a 6-speed SKYACTIV-MT manual transmission while the SKYACTIV-Drive automatic transmission is optional. On the 2014 Mazda3 GT, the automatic transmission is standard. The GT also gets a Sport mode which adjusts the engine and transmission to provide a more dynamic driving experience.

According to Mazda, the 2.0-liter engine’s fuel economy will be 6.8 liters per 100 kilometers in the city and 4.8 L/100 km on highway with the automatic transmission. The manual gearbox subtracts 0.1 liter from each of these ratings.

The more powerful engine in the GT version displays a fuel economy of 7.2 liters per 100 kilometers in the city and 5.1 L/100 km on the highway.

All 2014 Mazda3 models will be offered with a keyless entry and start, Bluetooth connectivity and a USB port. In the GX version air conditioning is an option ($ 1 600), while it is standard, of course, in the other two versions.

The 2014 Mazda3 will arrive in dealerships next month.
