2015 Mazda3 Gains Manual Transmission on 2.5L Engine



Mazda3 shoppers can now choose to row their own gears while enjoying the more powerful 2.5-liter four-cylinder powertrian.


The Japanese automaker has added a manual transmission option for models equipped with the larger 2.5-liter engine in addition to the six-speed automatic. On the hatchback equipped with a six-speed manual, fuel economy will return 26 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway which is slightly worse than the automatic which nets 27 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway. For the sedan model equipped with a 2.4-liter and a manual transmission, owners will get 25 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway.

Regardless of the body style, the manual transmission will be about $1,050 cheaper than the automatic option. Minor changes for the 2015 model year include standard Mazda Connect infotainment system and rear-view camera on the i Touring model while all buyers can get Mazda Connect upgraded with navigation for $399.95.
