The 2021 Mazda3 Brings an Impressive Turbocharged Engine to Okanagan, BC

(Posted on Dec 10, 2020 at 03:23PM by Josh Lew)
2021 mazda3 best price okanagan bcThe 2021 Mazda3 is a five-seat compact vehicle that stands out because of its sporty performance. The two base trims, the GX and GS, boast a 2.0L Skyactiv I-4 engine. Meanwhile, a larger 2.5L version of this motor is standard on the GT. 

Thanks to these powertrains, the 2021 Mazda3 is among the best in the compact car market. However, it truly eclipses the competition with a turbocharged 2.5L Skyactiv I-4, available on GT models and standard on the 100th Anniversary Edition. 

The turbocharged variation provides 250 horsepower and 320 lb.-ft of torque when fed premium 93 octane fuel and 227 hp and 310 lb.-ft using standard gas. 

This I-4 relies on a six-speed automatic transmission. Owners who want a hands-on experience will be happy to know that there is a manual mode, activated by a drive selection switch. Both 2021 Mazda3 GT with Turbo and 100th Anniversary Edition come with a paddle shifter. 

Both turbocharged trims have a FWD drivetrain. You can also opt for i-Activ AWD, which enhances road grip and improves performance in bad weather.   

If you would like to try the 2021 Mazda3 100th Anniversary Edition or GT with Turbo, contact our Okanagan, BC dealership today to schedule a test drive.
