A 2.0-liter DOHC inline-four engine with variable valve timing delivers 148-hp in the base model 2008 Mazda MAZDA3 i Sport. This front-wheel-drive sedan features a front independent and rear multilink suspension and rides on 15-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires. Dual front airbags are standard, along with 4-wheel disc brakes, head restraints, and a tire monitor. Side impact ratings are low, but rise significantly with the addition of optional side curtain airbags. ABS brakes are also optional, along with foglights and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
Standard equipment is kept to a minimum in the 2008 MAZDA3 i Sport, in order to keep the price tag down. Air conditioning, a tilt and telescopic steering wheel, intermittent wipers, a tachometer, and front power outlets are standard. Front sport seats provide extra support when putting the stiffer suspension to the test around curves. Another nice touch is wheel-mounted audio controls for the CD player, which includes an MP3 jack. Cupholders are provided for both front and rear passengers, and the rear seats split-fold onto an 11.5-cubic-foot trunk.
There are plenty of options available for the 2008 MAZDA3 i Sport, including a 6-CD changer, satellite radio, rear spoiler, compass, and cargo net. Owners love the amount of power for the price, but wish ABS brakes were standard.

Moving up to the front-wheel drive i Touring means you get bigger 16-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires and a lot more standard features, including power windows, locks, and mirrors, cruise control, a temperature display, remote entry, and two extra speakers (for a total of six). A remote trunk opener, not available with the Sport trim, is standard with the Touring. Carried over from the i Sport are wheel-mounted audio controls, a CD player with MP3 input, intermittent wipers, cloth sport seats, and tilt and telescopic steering.
A 2.0-liter, 148-hp DOHC I4 with variable valve timing sits under the hood of the 2008 MAZDA3 i Touring. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard, or you can choose an optional 4-speed automatic. Dual front airbags, a tire monitor, and 4-wheel disc brakes make up the safety equipment, but you can add ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, foglights, side impact and side curtain airbags, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The inline-four engine rates 24/32 mpg, which pleases most owners already impressed by the responsive handling and acceleration. The 2008 MAZDA3 i Touring adds a sunroof option, bundled with the 6-CD changer. Other extras include remote start, satellite radio, a rear spoiler, cargo net, and mudguards.

Adding some muscle to its profile, the 2008 MAZDA3 s Sport gets a bigger engine than the i trim. The 2.3-liter DOHC inline four with variable valve timing delivers 156 hp and 150 ft-lbs of torque. A 5-speed manual is standard, and a 5-speed automatic with overdrive is optional. Sitting on a firmer front independent and rear multilink suspension, the 2008 MAZDA3 s Sport uses its 16-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires to hug the roads, and its interior sport seats keep drivers snug. Unlike the i Sport, the s Sport comes standard with ABS brakes and electronic brakeforce distribution, along with 4-wheel disc brakes. For 2008, front-side and side curtain airbags are added to the dual front airbags. An auto-dimming rearview mirror is available.
An optional Sport Package adds larger 17-inch wheels, foglights, side sills, and a sport bumper. A rear spoiler is also available. On the inside, the 2008 MAZDA3 s Sport adds leather trim and cruise control. Other standard interior equipment includes full power features and remote entry, wheel-mounted audio controls, a CD player with MP3 jack, intermittent wipers, a tachometer and temperature display, and tilt and telescopic steering. Front power outlets and front and rear cupholders provide added convenience. Rear seats fold down, and the trunk holds 11.5 cubic feet, with the option to add a net. Other options include remote start, a sunroof, mudguards, satellite radio, and a 6-CD changer. Fun power, decent 22/29 fuel economy, and tight handling please owners, who complain mostly about road noise and a small backseat in this compact sedan.

Somewhat sporty, somewhat practical, and definitely affordable, the 2008 Mazda MAZDA3 s Sport Hatchback seats four and holds up to 44 cubic feet of cargo with the split-folding rear seats down. With the seats up, the cargo area is a roomy 17 cubic feet and comes with tie-downs and a cover. A net can be added. Side sills, body-colored front grille, and small rear roof spoiler add some flash to the budget compact hatchback.
Powered by a 2.3-liter, 156-hp DOHC inline four with variable valve timing, the s Sport hatch gets a so-so 22/29 mpg. A 5-speed manual or 5-speed automatic are available transmissions. The front independent and multilink rear suspension has been tweaked to be stiffer, and owners praise the tight handling and small turning ratio of this front-wheel drive hatch. Equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels and all-season tires, 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, and electronic brakeforce distribution, the 2008 MAZDA3 s Sport Hatchback feels responsive behind the wheel. Foglights, a tire monitor, and dual front airbags are standard. New for 2008 are side impact and side curtain bags. An auto-dimming rearview mirror is available.
Power windows, locks, and heated mirrors, wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls, a CD player with MP3 input, and leather trim dress up the interior of the 2008 MAZDA3 s Sport Hatchback. Intermittent front and rear wipers are added with the hatch. Other standard equipment includes a temperature display, tachometer, tilt and telescopic steering, and remote entry. The center console doubles as an armrest and contains a power outlet. Add-ons include a sunroof with wind deflector, 6-CD changer, satellite radio, and remote start.

The biggest difference between the 2008 MAZDA3 s Touring sedan and its sibling Sport trim is a car-load of standard safety features. In addition to 4-wheel ABS and disc brakes, dual front-side and side curtain airbags (new for 2008), a tire monitor, and electronic brakeforce distribution, the 2008 s Touring features traction and stability control, foglights, and larger 17-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires. A 2.3-liter, 156-hp DOHC inline four is matched with a 5-speed manual or optional 4-speed automatic and gets around 22/29 mpg. The sport-tweaked front independent and rear multilink suspension helps produce tighter handling and turn ratios. An auto-dimming rearview mirror is available as an option.
Like the Sport version, the 2008 MAZDA3 s Touring comes with a full array of power features, including remote entry and remote trunk release. Remote start is optional. Leather interior trim adds a sporty touch. Other standard features include wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls for the CD player, an MP3 input and two power outlets, intermittent wipers, tilt and telescopic steering, and a tachometer and temperature display. Satellite radio is optional, along with a 6-CD in-dash changer. Legroom in this compact SUV is tight, but 11 cubic feet of cargo room is pretty standard. Rear seats split-fold for more space. The 2008 MAZDA s Touring adds a cargo tray to the cargo net option and also can be outfitted with leather upholstery.

For those needing a bit more space than the sedan provides, the 2008 Mazda MAZDA3 s Touring Hatchback boosts cargo space from 11 to 17 cubic feet, which expands to 44 cubic feet with both rear seats folded down. With an emphasis on the driving experience, the s Touring adds a lot of nice safety features to the MAZDA3 s hatchback line. It starts with a 2.3-liter, 156-hp DOHC inline-four engine and 5-speed manual or 5-speed automatic transmission. Resting on 17-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires, the 2008 MAZDA3 s Touring adds traction and stability control and this year gets side impact and curtain airbags to join the dual front airbags. Other safety features include 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, electronic brakeforce distribution, foglights, and a tire monitor. An auto-dimming rearview mirror and compass are optional.
A small rear roof spoiler, side sills, and body-colored front grille add a sleeker look to the front-wheel drive economy hatchback. The cargo area comes standard with tie-downs and a cover, and a net can be added. Inside, the 2008 MAZDA3 s Touring Hatchback is much like the Sport, with full power features, power heated mirrors, wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls, a 6-speaker CD player with MP3 input jack, intermittent front and rear wipers, leather trim on the wheel and shifter, tilt and telescopic steering, a remote trunk release, temperature display, and front and rear cupholders. Leather seats are optional, along with satellite radio, a 6-CD changer, a sunroof and wind deflector, and remote start. Drivers like the 22/29 fuel economy, tight turning radius, and sporty feel, but say the MAZDA3 is noisy.

Fun to drive and packed with plenty of bells and whistles, the 2008 Mazda MAZDA3 s Grand Touring is not your typical compact budget sedan. With a 2.3-liter, DOHC inline four with variable valve timing and 5-speed manual (or optional 5-speed automatic), the front-wheel drive s Grand Touring delivers 156 hp and 150 ft-lbs of torque. Like the Touring, it uses 17-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires, 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, dual front-side and side curtain airbags, traction and stability control, a tire monitor, and foglights. But it adds xenon headlamps, automatic headlights, and rain-sensing wipers. With this equipment, the 2008 MAZDA3 s Grand Touring rates highly in crash tests.
There's a lot more standard luxury as well, including heated front seats and leather upholstery. The s Grand Touring also features a trip computer, along with the tachometer and temperature display on the dash. The sport seats keep front passengers snug. Full power features, remote entry, a security system, wheel-mounted cruise control and audio controls for the 6-speaker CD player, an MP3 input, two power outlets in the center console, front and rear cupholders, tilt and telescopic steering, and leather trim complete the package. On the outside, side sills and a sport bumper help define the sporty profile of the 2008 MAZDA3 s Grand Touring, and a rear spoiler and front air dam can be added. A 6-CD changer and satellite radio are optional, and the Grand Touring can also be outfitted with a navigation system. Remote start, a sunroof, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror are other extras.

The top of the lineup for this sporty compact hatchback, the 2008 Mazda MAZDA3 s Grand Touring combines power and purpose in an affordable package. A front independent and rear multilink suspension is tweaked to be stiffer, for a sportier ride, and the exterior adds touches such as alloy wheels, a body-colored grille, sport bumper, side sills, and rear roof spoiler. Engine power is provided by a 156-hp, 2.3-liter DOHC inline four with variable valve timing, matched to either a 5-speed manual or 5-speed automatic. The larger engine means less fuel economy, earning estimates of 22/29 mpg.
You get more safety features with the 2008 MAZDA3 s Grand Touring Hatchback, including automatic headlights, xenon lamps, and rain-sensing wipers, in addition to 4-wheel ABS brakes, traction and stability control, foglights, dual front, side impact, and side curtain airbags, 17-inch wheels with all-season tires, and a tire monitor. With all this equipment, the Grand Touring gets high scores in crash tests. It seats four in two rows, with folding rear seats that expand the cargo area from 17 to 44 cubic feet. Tie-downs and a cover are standard.
Interior additions include heated front seats, leather upholstery, a security system, and a trip computer. Entertainment is provided by an in-dash CD player with MP3 jack, with audio controls sitting next to the cruise control on the steering wheel. A 6-CD changer and satellite radio are optional. Remote entry, full power features, heated mirrors, front power outlets in the center console, intermittent front and rear wipers, leather accents on the wheel and shifter, and a temperature display and tachometer add plenty of high-end features without jacking up the price too much. Options for the 2008 MAZDA3 s Grand Touring Hatchback include remote start, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, compass, remote start, and sunroof. Options offered only on this trim are a navigation system and remote garage opener.
