2005 Mazda MAZDA3 Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 56 reviews
A year after its introduction, the MAZDA3 saw few changes for the 2005 model year, with the exception of the addition of a couple of new trim packages. The entry-level version was the MAZDA3i Sedan, which was powered by a 148-horsepower, 2.0-liter engine. It came standard with a five-speed manual overdrive transmission, while a four-speed automatic was optional. Features included air conditioning, dual airbags, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel, a lighted entry system, and a CD player.
Step up a notch to the four-door MAZDA3s Sedan or the five-door s Wagon (hatchback), and you get a more powerful 160-horsepower, 2.3-liter four-cyclinder engine, with the same standard manual transmission or optional automatic. Features included power windows, power door locks, power outside mirrors, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, sport seats, alloy wheels, and cruise control.
The two new trim packages were the SP23, available as either a four-door sedan or a five-door hatchback. Both were powered by the 160-horsepower four-cylinder engine, and came with premium features, including leather seats, special instrumentation, 17-inch wheels and a Bose audio system.
Overall, drivers gave positive marks to the MAZDA3, not only for its power and handling but also for its value. While the interior design was perhaps a bit spare, drivers appreciated the generous list of features that made the MAZDA3 a good buy for the money.
