2023 Mazda 3 is More Efficient and More Affordable in Canada

Mazda announced the price and specifications of the 2023 Mazda 3 in Canada.

  • The Mazda 3 receives some mechanical changes in 2023 to make its engines more efficient

  • The base 2,0L engine is now standard in more models

  • The price of every trim level has been reduced by $881 to $1,881

Mazda Canada has announced the pricing structure for the 2023 Mazda 3, which will receive some mechanical changes for the new year.

The compact sedan and the hatchback will both be more affordable for Canadian buyers in 2023 with prices that see a reduction that ranges from $881 to $1,881 for every trim level. This makes for a new base price of $21,600 for the sedan and $22,600 for the hatchback.

One of the reasons for this decrease in price is that the front-wheel drive GS models will lose the 2,5L engine, which is replaced by the 2,0L unit that also powers the entry-level GX.

This engine received improvements to become more efficient but its power output remained the same, at 155 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque.

The models that do keep the naturally aspirated version of the 2,5L engine, the GS AWD and the GT, will benefit from a 5-horsepower bump that brings the output to 191 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. This engine also receives a number of changes that will make it more fuel efficient, including an updated cylinder deactivation system.

The turbocharged version of the 2,5L engine is still available on the GT all-wheel drive models and it continues to deliver 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque when using 93 octane fuel or 227 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque with 87 octane fuel.

All models of the 2023 Mazda 3 and Mazda 3 Sport also receive rear side airbags to improve the safety of rear passengers, but this is one of the only changes that isn’t found under the hood.

Indeed, the design of the 2023 models remains the same as in 2022 and the standard or available features have not changed much.

This makes the 2023 Mazda 3 a better value than before considering its price drop, but only when comparing models equipped with the same engine since the addition of the 2,0L engine to the GS lowers its performance.
