2023 mazda3, mazda3 sport canadian pricing tempts across range

Mazda mid-August announced that hatchback models of the Mazda3 and Mazda3 Sport will start arriving in dealerships this fall with pricing that inches up over last year’s, from an entry at $22,600; to an exit at $37,100.

The pick-and-choose pricing fluctuates based  on customer selections, including manual or automatic transmissions, AWD, luxury options, or a tasty turbo model. Selected models benefit from a five-horsepower increase gained by enhancements to Mazda’s naturally aspirated Skyactiv-G 2.5 litre engine. Horsepower is pegged at 191, with torque at 186 lb-ft. After the hatchbacks arrive in the fall, expect the sedan versions to arrive this winter.

The 2023 base model Mazda3 GX sedan with manual transmission and FWD starts at $21,600; the hatchback at $22,600. Automatic versions of the same model start at $22,900 for the sedan; and $23,900 for the hatchback.

The Mazda3 Sport GS with a standard suite of safety gear,  and climate and passenger conveniences starts at $25,100 for the manual hatchback. The sedan comes as an automatic only, priced at $25,400. The auto hatchback is $26,400. Graduate to AWD versions and the 2.0L is bumped up to a 2.5L engine with that five-horsepower gain. The sedan starts at $27,900 and hatch at $28,900.

Toggle up to the GS Luxury package with moonroof, leatherette seats, multi-adjustable driver’s seat, and mirror memory, and pricing starts at $27,400 for the FWD sedan; and $28,400 for the hatchback. The 2.5L auto with AWD is $29,900 for the sedan and $30,900 for the hatch.

Put the GT lettering onto the Mazda3 and Mazda3 Sport and enjoy a premium bundle of goodies including Bose sound, navigation package, paddle shifters, leather seats, and 18-inch wheels. The FWD six-speed manual hatch starts at $31,400. Automatic versions with FWD are $31,700 for the sedan; and $32,700 for the hatch. All-wheel-drives jumps to $33,700 for the sedan; and $34,700 for the hatch.

In the too-much-fun category the turbocharged version of the Mazda3 and Mazda3 Sport GT cranks out 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque. The sedan is $36,100 and hatchback $37,100, including AWD, but sadly is available with only a six-speed automatic transmission. Interesting that Mazda suggests the turbo likes premium fuel, but says regular is acceptable — though it comes with a reduction in performance.
