The Mazda3 compact sedan is the best-selling Mazda on the planet. Entering the market in 2004 as the successor to the iconic Mazda 323, the Mazda3 has seen three generations since. In 2019, the fourth generation will hit the streets. Take a look at our inventory of used Mazda3s in Châteauguay.

USED FIRST-GENERATION MAZDA3S

The first Mazda3 was sold in the autumn of 2003 after appearing as a concept car at the Geneva International Motor Show earlier that same year. At the beginning of 2004, a sedan was introduced to follow the 5-door hatchback version. At the time, two powertrains were available: a 1.6 L and a 2.0 L, both with 4 cylinders. In early 2004, a 1.4 L gasoline engine and a 1.6 L diesel were added to the lineup. At the time, the Mazda3 was offered in four different trim levels. In mid-2006, a sports version, the MPS (Mazda Performance Series), was introduced, equipped with a 2.3 L turbo engine generating 260 horsepower. This used Mazda3is still on sale in Châteauguay at a great price.

USED SECOND-GENERATION MAZDA3S

The second-generation Mazda3 was unveiled at the LA Auto Show at the end of 2008. The new sporty design was a hit with Mazda fans and the powertrain has been praised both for its performance and for its economy at the pump. A restyled version appeared in early 2011. Second-generation Mazda3s are equipped with a variety of powertrains: three gasoline engines (a 1.6 L, a 2.0 L and a 2.3 L turbo generating 260 hp) and two diesels (a 1.6 L and a 2.2 L deploying 185 hp).
