2021 Mazda3 Turbo To Start At $32,900 in Canada

Not bad for a 250 horsepower car with all-wheel drive

  • Pricing for the new 2021 Mazda3 2.5 Turbo will start at $32,900 in Canada

  • 2021 Mazda3 coming in the fall

  • The new Mazda3 Turbo will cost more than the Subaru WRX, but less than the Volkswagen Golf R


The 2021 Mazda3 Turbo will come in three versions when it launches this fall with a starting price of $32,900 in Canada. Let’s take a closer look at the pricing for Mazda’s new top-of-the-line 3.

The Mazda3 Turbo launched earlier this week with a powerful 2.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder that delivers 227 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque on regular fuel. Opt for 93 Octane, however, and power increases to 250 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque.

That’s more than the Subaru WRX and Volkswagen Golf GTI, but less ponies than the Volkswagen Golf R and Honda Civic Type R. Still, with all-wheel drive standard, the 2021 Mazda3 Turbo can play in the same backyard as the Rs.

It’s also more affordable. Here’s a look at the three versions of the 2021 Mazda3 2.5 Turbo.

2021 Mazda3 GT 2.5 Turbo – $32,900

All Mazda3 Turbo models are top-of-the-line GT trim. That means that along with heated seats, i-Activesense active safety technology, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, heated steering wheel, and glass sunroof, buyers get a 10-way adjustable driver’s seat, navigation, satellite radio, and leather seats.

2021 Mazda3 GT Premium Package 2.5 Turbo – $34,600

The Premium Package adds a bunch of tech features including more safety systems. Examples include Smart Brake Support Rear, Smart Brake Support Rear Crossing, front and rear parking sensors, heads-up display, front wiper de-icer, auto-dimming rear-view mirror and Traffic Jam Assist.

2021 Mazda3 Turbo 100th Anniversary Edition – $36,100

The 100th Anniversary Edition adds distinctive visual elements such as special badging for the head rests, floor mats, and wheel centre caps. The only exterior color available is Snowflake White Pearl while the interior is finished in Garnet Red leather seats and floor mats.

The hatchback Sport model is available in every trim level for an extra $1,000. No manual gearbox is offered on the 2021 Mazda3 Turbo, all models getting a six-speed automatic standard.

In terms of pricing, the Mazda3 Turbo is right in the middle between the WRX and the Golf R, or the GTI and the Type R.
