After flooding us with all kinds of information, photos and videos about its brand-new 2014 Mazda3 Sedan and Hatchback, it’s time for the Japanese automaker to share details on pricing and fuel economy numbers for the U.S. market model.
Going straight to the point, prices start from $16,945 for the entry level ‘3’ sedan with the 2.0-liter unit and a six-speed manual rising to $26,495 for the 2.5-liter Grand Touring hatchback, with both prices excluding a $795 destination fee (*).
The 6-speed automatic is a $1,050 option on the 2.0-liter engine models, while for now, the bigger 2.5-liter mill is offered exclusively with a 6-speed automatic, but Mazda has confirmed the availability of a 6-speed manual gearbox later on. The hatchback is $500 more expensive than the sedan for all trims and engine variants.
When fitted with the 155hp 2.0-liter inline four, the hatchback returns an EPA estimated fuel economy of 29 city/40 highway/33 combined mpg with a manual transmission and 30 city/40 highway/33 combined mpg when equipped with an automatic. The sedan version with the same powerplant delivers an estimated 29 city/41 highway mpg (6sp manual) and 30 city/41 highway mpg (6sp auto).
With the more potent 184hp 2.5-liter four, the estimated fuel economy for the auto-only s-designated sedans is 28 city/39 highway mpg or 29 city/40 highway mpg when equipped with i-ELOOP (available with the $1,600 Touring Technology Package), while five-doors are estimated to achieve 28 city/37 highway mpg or 29 city/39 highway mpg with the capacitor-based regenerative engine braking i-ELOOP system.
