Improvements have been made to the 2.0L four-cylinder engine that has been featured on the Mazda3 for the past few years. The 2014 Mazda3 earns EPA estimates of up to 30 mpg for city driving and 41 mpg on the highway. Mazda did not sacrifice on power for that efficiency though, as the 2.0L engine produces 155 hp as well as 150 lb-ft of torque. Drivers can also opt for the 2.5L four-cylinder, which offers 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque and has also been enhanced to offer better mpg ratings.

One of the ways Mazda remains a leader in efficient vehicle technology is with its SKYACTIV system. From more sustainable engine options to lightweight body designs, Mazda is dedicated to making their vehicles more environmentally conscious without sacrificing power and performance.
As of right now, 95 percent of the world uses gasoline or diesel combustion engines, which is why Mazda decided to develop technology to make them as efficient as possible. Their solution is the SKYACTIV-G gasoline engine that releases less emissions and uses less fuel.
High quality, lightweight materials comprise the SKYACTIV body and chassis. In addition to adding rigidity and shedding weight, the suspension was also improved for greater stability and agility.
