The former boasts 155 horsepower with 150 lb-ft of torque, while the latter provides 184/185. A six-speed manual is standard across all models but there is an available six-speed automatic for those who prefer to keep their hands on the wheel.

2018 Mazda3 SideThe 2018 Mazda3 will likely maintain its IIHS Top Safety Pick+ rating from 2017, but this years model brings enhanced safety features. Standard for the 2018 models is automated emergency braking and Mazda's i-Activsense, which include automatic high-beams, lane-keeping, and adaptive cruise control, are now available with the Premium Equipment Package. In past years, i-Activsense was only available as a standalone package.

Front and side airbags comes standard, as does blind spot monitoring. There is little doubt that consumers can trust that their safety was kept in mind when Mazda designed this car.
