The 2021 Mazda3 GS in Okanagan, BC: A Fuel-Efficient Compact with Exciting Extras

(Posted on Dec 2, 2020 at 02:00PM by Josh Lew)
2021 mazda3 for sale okanagan bcThe 2021 Mazda3 GS is a compact vehicle that comfortably seats five. Like other small cars, this one has practical traits. Its fuel economy is 6.4 L/100 km on the highway, and its Skyactiv-G 2.0L four-cylinder engine produces a respectable 155 hp. It also has a standard six-speed manual transmission. 

Though it is quite pragmatic in many ways, the 2021 Mazda3 offers exciting enhancements. For example, shoppers can opt for a 2.5L I-4 engine that increases the horsepower to 186. Though front-wheel drive is standard, 4x4 is available, as is a six-speed automatic shifter. 

These extras can create a performance-oriented car that can handle adverse weather conditions. However, they do not cancel out the practicality. Even with the 2.5L engine and AWD, the 2021 Mazda3 GS gets 7.0 L/100 km on the highway. 

There are plenty of safety features, as well. The Mazda3 protects passengers with blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-path alert, and Smart City Brake Support, which stops the vehicle automatically to avoid collisions. Traditional elements like front and side airbags, three-point belts, and child-seat anchors are standard on all trims.
