2006 4dr Hatch 160-horsepower 2.3L I4

Sub par for the segment driving under mixed city/highway conditions. Really tanks in the winter. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

The city mpg is only 20 and that is driving conservatively. see full Mazda Mazda3 review

2005 4dr Sedan 160-horsepower 2.3L I4
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Not the best for a small sedan. Expect only 24-25 in the city, no better than 30mpg on the freeway. Geared for acceleration so the engine turns at high rpm in city traffic (nearly 2500 rpm), and on the freeway at 70mph the engine is over 3k rpm. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
2004 4dr Sedan 160-horsepower 2.3L I4
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
60/40 City/Highway yields only 25-27 MPG, not very impressive for a 4 cylinder although keep in mind it is a 2.3 liter engine. see full Mazda Mazda3 review
