Do you want to know how far the all-new 2019 Mazda3 Sedan can go on a tank of gas? We will answer that as we explore the 2019 Mazda3 Sedan fuel efficiency and range.

At first glance, it seems that the 2019 Mazda3 Sedan only has one engine option, but that’s slightly incorrect. The 2.5-liter 186-horsepower engine is indeed standard on all 2019 Mazda3 Sedan models, at least for now. However, some of these engines come with cylinder deactivation which can improve their efficiency.

Cylinder deactivation comes on the FWD Premium Package, as well as all AWD equipped Mazda3 Sedan models for 2019. Front-wheel drive comes standard on all Mazda3 Sedan models, but AWD is available on every trim except the base model. That includes the Select Package, the Preferred package, and the Premium Package.

How efficient is the 2019 Mazda3 Sedan?

We have three configurations to consider when it comes to efficiency for the 2019 Mazda3 Sedan. We have FWD models without cylinder deactivation, FWD models with cylinder deactivation, and AWD models. See all the EPA-estimated figures below.
