Mazda Canada is kicking off its 2024 model year lineup announcements with updates to the 2024 Mazda3 and 2024 Mazda3 Sport. The Mazda3 (sedan) and Mazda3 Sport (hatchback) offer customers a choice of compact cars with engaging driving dynamics and sophisticated design. Mazda3 Sport models will arrive at West Coast Mazda and other Mazda dealerships this summer, followed by Mazda3 models in the fall.
For 2024, the Mazda3 elevates its standard performance to new heights with an upgraded Skyactiv-G 2.5-liter engine, replacing the previous Skyactiv-G 2.0-liter engine. This upgrade now delivers 191 horsepower and an impressive 186 lb-ft of torque with either regular 87 octane or premium 93 octane fuel. The updates result in a 44 horsepower increase and an increase in overall fuel efficiency. In the new Mazda3, customers will experience the updated cylinder-deactivation technology, fine-tuned for optimal efficiency in specific operating conditions. The result is impressive real world fuel economy, with NRCan rated efficiency of 8.4 litres per 100 kilometres (L/100km) in the city and 6.3 L/100km on the highway, combining for a remarkable 7.5 L/100km overall. The powerful and refined Skyactiv-G 2.5 Turbo engine remains available in certain packages.
**MSRP does not include $1,995 for freight & PDE, taxes, title or additional fees. Retailers set actual sale prices.
With seven unique packaging options available in the Mazda3 sedan and nine on the Mazda3 Sport hatchback, standard front-wheel drive (FWD) and available i-Activ all-wheel drive (AWD) in select models, owners can choose the Mazda3 that best fits their day-to-day lives and driving preferences.

All Mazda3 models come standard with many i-Activsense safety features to support everyday driving, including Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. The Automatic Emergency Breaking (AEB) feature has been updated in all 2024 models to enhance night-time performance. Mazda Connected Services2 is complementary for two years, which provides the ability for the owner to monitor and interact with their Mazda3 remotely through the MyMazda app, with features such as remote start, locking/unlocking the doors remotely, and sending directions to the Mazda Navigation system (if equipped). Rear side airbags have been added to all models which will reinforce the already strong safety performance of this IIHS Top Safety Pick + model (when equipped with optional front crash prevention).

Use of MyMazda App and compatible phone are required. Connected services require cellular or Wi-Fi service. Data fees may apply. Never drive while distracted or while using a hand-held device.
