I am a very spirited driver! Translation: I put my foot in it! I drive this car hard and it still gives me 480km/tank at $1.06/ltr. In Canada, that translates to a very conservative figure of $50 every 2-2.5 weeks. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

22 mpg (city) in a car this small is abysmal. 27 highway is worse. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

I have the Grand Touring model with the upped engine. Fuel economy is very poor compared to other cars in its class. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2010 4dr Sedan 167-horsepower 2.5L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
It sucks (literally). Slightly better than 25 mpg overall (I am driving one with a bigger engine). The 3 i variant would do better without much sacrafaces. But the rating is still below Civics and Corollas of the world. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

Fuel economy in the VW GTI is slightly better than the Mazda 3, but it requires premium fuel. In the end, it's about even. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

We average aprox 22MPG. Dont buy the Speed version of the Mazda 3 if your looking for fuel economy. Buy it if you have a smile pasted on your face when you drive. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
