Mazda’s Turbo takes the basic sedan to another level with a more powerful engine and all-wheel-drive. Let’s explore some of the features I appreciate about this car.

Interior Comfort and Cargo Space

Mazda has paid attention to details when designing the 3’s cabin with premium materials. For example, a head-up display, heated front seats, and leather upholstery are all available on the upper-level trims. The Turbo also comes with a heated steering wheel. This 5-passenger sedan has adequate storage that includes cabin cubbies and trunk space for 6 carry-on pieces of luggage. The second-row seat folds down to expand the cargo space.

Engine and Performance

The Mazda3 has a four-cylinder engine. The Turbo package has a fast 2.5-liter engine with 250 horsepower. This four-wheel-drive car has a six-speed automatic transmission. The new Mazda3 retains the exciting-to-drive nature of the 2021 model. It has tight body control, smooth steering, and a stable ride that keeps driver and passengers comfortable on rough roads. The fuel economy for the 2.5 Turbo engine is rated at 23 mpg city, 32 mpg highway, and 27 mpg combined.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The 8.8-inch infotainment display is standard on the Mazda3. The display sits in the center of the dash and is easy to see and to control by a console-mounted rotary knob. The Turbo model of the Mazda3 has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability. There is also an available 12-speaker Bose audio system and SiriusXM satellite radio connectivity.

Safety and Driver-Assistance

Each Mazda3 model features a suite of standard driver-assistance technology, such as automatic LED high-beam headlights and automated emergency braking.

Additional key safety features include pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology.

When it comes to sedans, I think the 2022 Mazda3 Turbo is one worth taking a closer look at. There are several trim levels for the 3 to choose from.
