2021 MAZDA3 vs 2020 MAZDA3

Serving Farmington Hills, MI

The 2021 Mazda3 is the compact car that stands out to Farmington Hills’ drivers, and it is the model that deserves ample attention as you prepare for a new car purchase. For both 2020 and 2021, the Mazda3 is offered in hatchback and sedan styles, and both versions have numerous trim options. These two model years are mid-generational versions and share many traits. However, their differences could be critical to your upcoming car selection.


Throughout the trim lineup for the 2020 and 2021 Mazda3, you can appreciate several performance equipment and capabilities differences. For example, the 2021 Mazda3’s starting trim levels now have a 155-horsepower, four-cylinder engine. The same engine is found in the mid-range trims for 2020 and 2021. This is a 186-horsepower, 2.5-liter Skyactiv®-G engine. The new model year's highest trim levels receive 250 horsepower from a turbo 2.5-liter Dynamic Pressure engine.


The enviable styling of the Mazda3’s exterior is unchanged between 2020 and 2021 trim levels. Regardless of whether you select the hatchback or sedan body styles, your new car will have a smoothly rounded arch over the front wheel fender and down the side panels. The hood is equally smooth as it swoops into a dominating grille outlined with a chrome accent piece. Across the exterior of all or some of the Mazda3’s trims for both years, you could appreciate LED lights, heated side mirrors, a remote access trunk, a sunroof, and other equipment.


The well-appointed interior of the Mazda3 hatchback and sedan versions for both years will impress you. Our showroom at Suburban Mazda of Farmington Hills gives you an accessible location to compare trim levels. Equipment that you can appreciate in various Mazda3 trims for both years are Apple CarPlay, two USB ports, voice commands, mapping technology, Android Auto, a Bose sound system, auto climate control, and a full-color display screen.
