Available as a sedan or hatchback, the 2021 Mazda3 2.5 Turbo has a sporty profile and capable powertrain. This athletic model can be enhanced with several optional packages, which include aerodynamic kits and other premium styling features. For an extra fee, three exterior paint options are available for buyers.

Under the hood, the 2021 Mazda3 2.5 Turbo has an engine block that generates up to 250 horsepower. Carrying the next-generation Skyactiv-G label, this turbocharged powertrain cranks out 320 pound-feet of torque when burning premium unleaded fuel. The horsepower and torque outputs will be slightly lower with regular unleaded fuel. This updated model also rolls on the predictive i-Activ All-Wheel Drive system that provides reliable traction on wet roads. The signature AWD system has all-weather capabilities, but consumers shouldn't get too excited about the off-road attributes. After all, the 2021 Mazda3 2.5 Turbo is a cool car primarily optimized for the city. A manual transmission system with six gear ratios is on the menu for drivers who prefer to customize the shifting patterns.

Besides having a sporty powertrain, this lightweight Mazda model boasts premium exterior accessories with racing inspirations. You can choose the Soul Red Crystal, Machine Gray Metallic or Snowflake White Pearl Mica finishes for the body color. Black side mirrors contrast these premium paint finishes.

Available in two versions, the Aero Kit enhances the car's aerodynamic profile. Of course, the front air dam provides noticeable aerodynamic benefits on the highway. The optional kit also includes a rear roof spoiler that slightly reduces drag at fast speeds. A rear diffuser adds an athletic touch to this sleek car, which also wears side sills with extensions. The Mazda3 2.5 Turbo rolls on 18-inch wheels, which have a gloss black finish. Having a forged composition, these BBS wheels are remarkably durable and robust. You'll also notice a much larger exhaust tip on this sporty vehicle.

When it comes to active safety, expect to see the i-ActivSense technology in this model. From automatic braking and cruise control to blind-spot monitors and rearview cameras, you'll get plenty of intelligent driving aids from the signature safety suite. Side airbags and multiple crumple zones boost the car's passive safety design.
