New Mazda 3 2020 pricing and specs detailed: Toyota Corolla-rivalling hatch and sedan now cost more

The Mazda3 has been hit with two price rises since its new-generation model was released last April.

Mazda Australia has once again increased the pricing of its Mazda3 small hatch and sedan.

All variants are now $600 more expensive, with MY19 versions recently going up by $250, while their MY20 counterparts that arrived afterwards rose by an extra $350. Specification hasn’t changed.

As such, the five-grade Mazda3 now ranges in cost from $25,590 plus on-road costs for the entry-level manual G20 Pure to $38,590 for the flagship automatic G25 Astina (see full pricing table below).

A Mazda Australia spokesperson told CarsGuide the Toyota Corolla rival's price rises came partly in response to exchange-rate pressures.

When the new-generation Mazda3 was introduced last April, its cost of entry was $4500 higher than that of its predecessor, with Mazda Australia explaining at the time that the discrepancy was due to a stark increase in base specification.

As before, G20 variants are powered by a 114kW/200Nm 2.0-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine, while G25 counterparts are motivated by a 139kW/252Nm 2.5-litre unit.

All versions are available with two transmission options: a six-speed manual or a six-speed torque-converter automatic. Drive is sent to the front wheels only.
