Mazda Canada is kicking off its 2024 model year lineup announcements with updates to the Mazda3 and Mazda3 Sport.

The Mazda3 Sport models will arrive at dealerships this summer, followed by Mazda3 models in the fall. The upgraded Skyactiv-G 2.5-litre engine will replace the previous Skyactiv-G 2.0-litre 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.

The cylinder-deactivation technology has been updated for optimal efficiency in specific operating conditions. The result is 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 Skyactiv-G 2.5 Turbo engine remains available in certain packages.

Mazda3/Mazda3 Sport GX

Mazda3 and Mazda3 Sport GX models are now equipped with the Skyactiv-G 2.5-litre engine, paired with Skyactiv-Drive six-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift mode and Drive Selection switch, FWD, and G-Vectoring Control Plus.

All Mazda3 models come standard with i-Activsense safety features, including:

  • Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Automatic Emergency Breaking (AEB)
  • Mazda Connected Services (complimentary for two years) which includes remote start, locking/unlocking the doors remotely, and sending directions to the Mazda Navigation system through the MyMazda app.
  • Rear side airbags (when equipped with optional front crash prevention).

The interior features an 8.8-inch centre display with the latest Mazda Connect infotainment system that can be controlled with the multi-function commander knob.

The exterior provides LED lighting for the automatic on/off headlights and daytime running lights, and LED combination taillights, to go along with a matte finish front grille and silver finish 16-inch aluminum alloy wheels.

Mazda3/Mazda3 Sport GS

The GS model adds the full standard suite of i-Activsense safety equipment, including Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop&Go, Smart City Brake Support Front, Pedestrian Detection (forward sensing), Lane Departure Warning System with Lane-keep Assist, High Beam Control, Driver Attention Alert, dual-zone automatic climate controls, heated steering wheel and heated exterior mirrors.

Mazda3 and Mazda3 Sport GS models now feature a Skyactiv-G 2.5-litre engine on FWD trims.

Available for the GS models, the GS Luxury Package offers a ten-way power driver’s seat with lumbar support and seat memory, auto-dimming rearview mirror, exterior mirrors with a reverse tilt-down function and door mirrors linked with memory positioning, along with a power moonroof. The 2024 GS Luxury Package also features a larger 10.25-inch infotainment display that adds touchscreen functionality when paired with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Mazda3/Mazda3 Sport GT

Building upon the features of the GS Luxury Package models, the Mazda3 and Mazda3 Sport GT models come with the Bose 12-speaker premium audio with aluminum speaker grilles. In addition, SiriusXM satellite radio is provided with a complimentary three-month trial, and SiriusXM Traffic Plus and Travel Link services with a 5-year complimentary subscription. The GT models offer a full-colour windshield-projected Active Driving Display, Mazda Navigation System, paddle shifters, Adaptive Front-lighting System, and advanced keyless entry.

The GT models are 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels in a dark grey finish for the hatchback and light grey for the sedan, a gloss black grille (Mazda3 Sport only), and LED signature illumination on the headlights and taillights. Inside, GT models are equipped with leather seats available in black or Garnet Red.

Further safety and convenience upgrades include Smart Brake Support Rear and Smart Brake Support Rear Crossing, Traffic Jam Assist, 360° View Monitor, and front and rear parking sensors. The homeLink wireless control system is added to the frameless auto-dimming rearview mirror, and Mazda Navigation System with Active Driving Display includes Traffic Sign Recognition.

Mazda3 & Mazda3 Sport GT Turbo

The Mazda3 and Mazda3 Sport GT Turbo are powered by the Skyactiv-G 2.5 Turbo engine delivering 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque with premium 93 octane fuel paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and standard i-Activ AWD. With regular 87-octane fuel, the turbo engine is capable of 227 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque.
