2021 Mazda3 Sedan Turbo Premium Plus
The Mazda3 is a very attractive compact fast sporty sedan manufactured in Japan by Mazda.
Back in 2003, the Mazda3 was introduced as a 2004 model, replacing the past Familia / 323 / Protegé sedan in Mazda’s C segment.
The Mazda3 was originally a performance-oriented version and was marketed as the Mazdaspeed3 in North America, Axela in Japan, and the Mazda 3 MPS in Europe. But at the present time it is known as the Mazda3.
The Mazda3 sedan inspires driving confidence and pleasure to ride
The Mazda3 fourth generation remains the first production model to adopt this evolved version of Mazda’s Kodo design.
The Mazda3 is known as the Mazda Axela in Japan. It is manufactured in Hiroshima, Japan.
A second generation Mazda3 was unveiled in late 2008 as a 2010 model. Then the third generation was introduced in mid-2013 as a 2014 model.
The fourth generation Mazda3 arrived in 2019.
The Mazda3 is a compact sedan that is fuel efficient, reliable, safe, spacious and packed with the latest technology and safety features, all for a low price starting at 20K.
The new Mazda3 survives in a segment of sedans that is falling against small SUVs.
Competitors like the Honda Civic Toyota Corolla and Kia Forte stay on the race to sell sedans against the cute and modern Mazda3.
Trims and Pricing for the 2021 Mazda3
Mazda is one of my favorite brands in terms of pricing. Kia and Hyundai used to have such low price as Mazda but in recent years those brands have become more popular and price has increased. However, Mazda keeps a low price that doesn’t look cheap. Mazda cars feel and look expensive, modern, and young, but pricing stays low, producing one of the best value you can find in a new compact car.
The Mazda3 has a great pricing starting at 20K with the base 2.0 sedan base model, and you can go and pay up to $32K with the top of the lime trim Turbo Premium Plus model I am test driving.
Buying a Mazda3 Turbo Premium Plus for $32K will make you feel as if you are driving a very expensive and premium car, fast and sporty, but your wallet will love to drive this new car for such low price compared to all the features and value you get for your money.

Beautiful on the Inside
On the inside the Mazda3 looks like one of the best sedans in its class. Expensive-looking aluminum accents, solid-feeling switches, and faux leather door accents. This is not the first time that I drive a Mazda car that feels and looks so expensive and premium but when you look at the ticket price you wonder how Mazda can do it? Sell you a beautiful fast car for a very low price, I love it!, thank you Mazda for great value pricing and great look.
The front seats of the Mazda3 are comfortable and supportive. The rear seats have a nice contour, but the interior space in the back is not large, just as you can expect from a compact car.
In general front passengers will enjoy their space, but taller drivers may want the steering wheel to extend further.
