Fontana Mazda Shoppers Are Inspired By The 2020 Mazda3
Most compact cars will get you from point A to point B reliably. If you’re looking for a dull, uninspiring ride, any one of them will do. But if you want a compact sedan or hatchback that features attractive interior and exterior styling, class-leading handling, and a fun driving experience, you’ll want to choose the 2020 Mazda3. According to the Mazda dealer near Fontana, CardinaleWay Mazda in Corona, the Mazda3 gets the i-Activsense suite of driver-assist features standard for 2020.
The 2020 Mazda3 seats five and comes in four trim levels at dealers like the Fontana area Mazda dealership, listed as Base, Select, Preferred, and Premium. Buyers can choose between sedan and hatchback models. Whichever configuration you choose, you’ll get a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 186 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox. Those who prefer to roll their own gears can select for the optional six-speed manual on Preferred hatchback models.
Impressive Reviews - Outstanding Fuel Efficiency
The automotive media is unanimous in its praise for the 2020 Mazda3, with Autotrader writing: “While most compact cars try to impress with good fuel economy or sporting intentions, the 2020 Mazda3 puts them all to shame, offering seductive styling, an impressive list of available features and an interior [that] wouldn't look out of place in a $50,000 luxury car. Mazda’s attention to detail is evident throughout the Mazda3.”
Fuel economy is exceptional with an EPA-estimated of up to 27 mpg city/36 mpg highway for the sedan with front-wheel drive, automatic transmission and cylinder deactivation technology. Mazda’s standard G-Vectoring Control Plus technology helps provide the Mazda3 with unrivaled handling. When the vehicle corners, G-Vectoring Control Plus shifts the weight forward to provide more traction and applies light brake force to the outer wheels as the steering wheel returns to the center position.
There’s plenty of space for storing or transporting cargo, with the sedan offering 13.2 cubic feet of space in the trunk, and the hatchback’s providing 20.1 cubic feet of cargo space.
Standard features in the base sedan include cloth seating (synthetic leather in the hatchback), push-button start, keyless entry, rain-sensing wipers, an 8.8-inch infotainment screen, a stereo system with eight speakers, Bluetooth connectivity, and two USB ports. Standard driver-assistance features include lane-keep assist, lane-departure warning, automatic emergency braking, a driver-attention monitor, adaptive cruise control, a blind-spot monitor and automatic high beams.
Optional features include a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and heated front seats.
At the top of the Mazda3 lineup, the Premium trim comes with adaptive headlights, a moonroof, leather-trimmed sport seats and a head-up display.
Safety is an important criterion for buyers choosing a new family car. The 2020 Mazda3 gets excellent safety scores. The IIHS named the Mazda3 a Top Safety Pick+, with the highest rating of Good in all crash tests. The NHTSA gave the Mazda3 the top score of five stars for overall safety.
