Eric's Autos: 2022 Mazda3

Eric Peters on

As well as a manual transmission -- only with the hatch, not the sedan.

A top-of-the-line Premium Plus version of the hatch (with the 2.5 turbo engine and AWD) stickers for $34,400. But you can get the same drivetrain, sans the hatch, for $33,100 if you choose the sedan version of the 3.

What's New

For the 2022 model year, Mazda has added a Carbon Edition to the roster of options. It is chiefly an appearance package that bundles gray exterior paint with black exterior accents and red leather-trimmed interior.

What's Good

Choose your style -- and your price.


Multiple engine/transmission and drivetrain choices.

One of the most enjoyable-to-drive cars in the class.

What's Not So Good

Sedan is automatic only.
