Mazda3 Price Lowered for 2025

In a rare Uno Reverse moment, the crew at Mazda has reduced the price of entry for the generally excellent Mazda3.

It’s not a wholesale price chop across the board, mind you. For example, the primary reason for a reduction in starting price on the hatchback is thanks to an appearance of the base S trim, a level which was not in the cards last year. It’s a similar story for anyone desiring a turbocharged 5-door, with a new Carbon Turbo trim coming in roughly $3,000 cheaper than the asking price of last year’s Turbo Premium Plus. That being said, like-for-like pricing is up only $300 for 2025 hatches.

Anyone preferring a four-door Mazda3 with a real trunk will find similar pricing changes, though the 2.5 S is genuinely cheaper than last year, stickering at $25,135 which is a savings of 220 clams. Other trims either hold the line (such as the 2.5 S Select Sport at $26,145) or move the needle imperceptibly (like the 2.5 Turbo Premium Plus which climbs 50 bucks to $36,985). Those prices all include the $1,185 destination charge.

For anyone who has forgotten, the Mazda3 is offered avec or sans turbocharging. The naturally aspirated mill is good for 191 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque while the turbo makes 227 ponies and 310 lb-ft of twist when fed a steady diet of 87 octane. Springing for costlier 93 octane fuel nets extra power in the turbo, pushing output to 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque. Turns out it is good to eat yer spinach. Some trims can be shod with all-wheel drive.

Through to the end of May, there have been 15,157 Mazda3 models delivered, about 43.3% of which have been hatchbacks. That number is far higher than this author expected, though it is pleasing to learn. Perhaps unsurprisingly, that number lags behind every crossover in the showroom, a performance led by the CX-5 which has found 58,094 homes so far this year.
