2021 MAZDA3 vs 2020 MAZDA3

Serving Troy, MI

The beautiful Mazda3 is the compact car that you want to call your own. Before you can drive your Mazda3 home from Suburban Mazda of Troy, however, you need to decide between the many options available in our inventory. The 2020 and 2021 Mazda3 are options in the middle of the model’s fourth generation. They are also both offered in several trims across hatchback and sedan body styles. With a few exciting improvements to the 2021 version, however, you need to explore standout traits so that you can make a smart selection based on your expectations and needs.


The most substantial improvements that you will notice between the 2020 and 2021 Mazda3 are found under the hood. The Mazda3 has seven trim options, and the first few trims for 2021 have an updated four-cylinder engine that now delivers 155 horsepower. A new engine is also found in the top trims for the 2021 Mazda3. This is a turbo 2.5-liter engine that gives you 250 horsepower. The Mazda3 sedan and hatchback versions both have the same engine in the mid-range trim levels for 2020 and 2021. This is a Skyactiv®-G 2.5-liter, 186-horsepower engine.


Visually, the 2020 and 2021 Mazda3 trims are unchanged. The sedan and hatchback versions both have a chrome-accented grille that dominates the front end. They also have decadent LED headlights that sportily fade toward the rear. The sleekness of the swooping hood and the dramatic arch that flows over the front fender further define the lovely appeal of the Mazda3’s design.


The Mazda3 is loaded with modern features that perfectly correspond with its exterior style. Across various trim levels for both body styles, the Mazda3 could come with a Bose premium sound system, voice controls, a full-color display screen, two USB ports, automatic climate management, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, powered seats, assistive technologies, mapping functions, and other equipment.
