2011 model year changes

Following a complete remodel for 2010, the Mazda3 gains some new standard features. Stability control and power door locks are now standard on 3i SV and 3i Sport sedans, while hatchback and sedan 3s Sport models equipped with the automatic transmission can now be ordered with rain-sensing wipers, LED taillights and automatic, adaptive bi-xenon headlights. In the 3s Grand Touring, a 265-watt Bose sound system and 6-disc CD changer become standard, as does a power sunroof.

Special features for 2011

The Mazda3's interior is reason alone to consider it. The Mazda3's appointments are like no other car in its class and feature Mazda's flair for details and materials that are fashionably different. The Mazda3 can be equipped either as a basic, economical sedan in 3i form, or as a sporty-feeling sedan or hatch in 3s trim. Base Mazda3 i models are a great value considering their low starting price, while top-of-the-line 3s Grand Touring models rival entry models from luxury brands and offer some exclusive tech features. Mazda says that the 3 is the first car in its class to offer Adaptive Front Lighting and self-leveling bi-xenon headlamps.
The 2011 MAZDA3 is an entry level compact available as a 4-door sedan or 5-door hatchback. Engine choices for the sedan are 2.0/2.5-liter 4-cylinder engines that produce 148/167 hp and 135/168 lb-ft of torque, the latter being the only available engine in the hatchback trim. The 2.0-liter engine is available with a 5-speed manual/automatic transmission while the 2.5-liter comes with a choice of a 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic transmission. Both the sedan and hatchback are only available in FWD and get an EPA estimated 22 mpg city and 29 mpg highway with the optional automatic transmission available with the 2.5-liter engine. For those keen on gas mileage, the 2.0-liter engine with the standard manual transmission will deliver an EPA estimated 25 mpg city and 33 mpg highway. The Tech Package, available in both trims, includes bi-xenon headlights, adaptive front-lighting system, rain-sensing windshield wipers, LED taillights, advanced keyless entry, push-button start, and compact navigation with full-color display. The MAZDA3 is eligible for an extended protection plan up to 10 years/100,000 miles.
