Mazda 3 Pricing and Specs

2022 price from
$26,340*

The Mazda 3 is available from $26,340 to $42,490 for the 2022 range of models in Hatchback and Sedan body types.

Mazda’s fourth-generation Mazda 3 entered Australian showrooms in April 2019 with current prices ranging from $26,340 for the 3 G20 Pure to $42,490 for the 3 X20 Astina M Hybrid.

Pricing is identical for either hatchback or sedan body styles, while two engines are also on offer – the entry-level 114kW/200Nm 2.0-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder found in G20-badged versions, as well as the top-shelf 139kW/252Nm 2.5-litre four pot of the G25.

Both engines can be had with either a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic transmission, the latter adding $1000 to the price.

Five grades are offered across the Mazda 3 line-up – Pure, Evolve, Touring, GT and Astina – with the 2.0-litre engine only available in the first three variants, while the 2.5-litre motor is accessible in the top two versions as well as the Evolve.

Standard equipment in the Pure includes 16-inch wheels, an 8.0-inch multimedia screen, reversing camera, head-up display, push-button start, blind-spot monitor, autonomous emergency braking, rear cross-traffic alert and adaptive cruise control.

Stepping up to the Evolve adds 18-inch wheels, dual-zone climate control and the brand’s G-Vectoring Control Plus, while the Touring gains keyless entry, power-adjustable driver’s seat and leather trim.

Heated seats and steering wheel, as well as a 12-speaker Bose sound system, is added to GT grades, while unique 18-inch wheels, a surround-view monitor, adaptive LED headlights, front parking sensors and a sunroof is fitted to the top-spec Astina.

Mazda 3 FAQs

Check out real-world situations relating to the Mazda 3 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Mazda 4 - A bigger hatchback than the 3?

    Mazda is unlikely to increase the number of its passenger car models, given the contracting nature of such body styles in favour of crossovers and SUVs.

    Also, note that a CX-4 has existed in China for a number of years, slotting tightly between the CX-3 and CX-5 as a sleeker coupe version of the latter, so if you do see a '4' (or, more likely, a '40') on the tailgate of a Mazda in the future, it might be sat on an SUV-shaped rather than hatchback-shaped five-door.

  • Mazda MX3 - What ever happened to the Eunos 30X?

    The failure of the MX-3/Eunos 30X in the 1990s contributed to Mazda's slide to near-bankruptcy and into a waiting Ford's arms, so it is unlikely that that either the small coupe model or nameplates will ever be resurrected.

    That said, it is worth noting that the existing (BP-series) Mazda3/Axela is very much a coupe-esque hatchback in the spirit of the sporty MX-3/30X.

  • Mazda 9 - Will we ever see a successor to the 929?

    Mazda is unlikely to introduce a sedan larger than the Mazda6, due to the declining sales of larger sedans globally in favour of SUVs.

    However, with Mazda marching upmarket and its ties with Toyota strengthening, a joint-venture project with Toyota or even Lexus, using Mazda's new rear-drive platform and inline six-cylinder engine range, may make a model-sharing luxury flagship – a modern-day 929 in other words – a possibility.

    But there are currently no plans that we know of pertaining to such a model, sadly.

    We hope this helps.
