2011 Mazda Mazda3 Real Gas Mileage: Pros

2012 4dr Sedan 155-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
While reviews are mixed, the Skyactiv engine delivers as promised for me. With over 70% city/suburb driving, I've yet to average under 30mpg (odo/pump). Set the cruise control at 65-70 and > 40mpg is easy on a flat highway. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

Excellent fuel economy with the skyactiv 155hp engine see full Mazda Mazda3 review

This car does very well.. I drive mostly highway during the week, but a lot of rush hour driving means lots of stop and go. Even with that and the around town driving I do on the weekends, I am still averaging 38.1 MPG! see full Mazda Mazda3 review

Hard to beat 40 mpg in a car that drives as well and has the performance of the Mazda3. Most ZOOM ZOOM for the price of any car I test drove. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2012 4dr Hatch 155-horsepower 2.0L I4

I drive it on the highway at a constant speed of about 78 with the cruise control on, for my daily commute . Very little traffic on my commute, and speed limit is 70. I get about 33 mpg, or 380 miles per tank. I've found that long-range runs of an hour or more seems to burn out the gunk, and I have better fuel economy for the next week or two. I figure driving near 80 is killing the advertised 39 mpg with the Skyactiv engine. 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

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
