Overview

The sophisticated good looks and premium quality of the 2022 Mazda3 Hatchback are two of the key reasons why it remains popular year after year. Although the sedan version is equally excellent, this five-door offers a bit more practicality with its rear hatch and ample cargo space (the hatchback supplies 20.1 cubic feet over the sedan’s 13.2 cu. ft.). Plus, Mazda introduced a bold and brand-new Carbon Edition for 2022 that’s sure to capture attention with its exclusive Polymetal Gray paint color, blacked-out 18-inch wheels, heated side mirrors (also in black), and red leather seats.

Trims and Performance

There are plenty of choices to make with the 2022 Mazda3 Hatchback. It’s sold in two main trims (2.5 S and 2.5 Turbo) and five subtrims (Select, Preferred, Carbon Edition, and Premium for the 2.5 S and Premium Plus for the 2.5 Turbo). The 2.5 S versions have a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 186 hp and 186 lb.-ft., while the 2.5 Turbo versions get a more vigorous turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder. With regular fuel, this available powerplant produces 227 hp and 310 lb.-ft. of torque, but with premium, it whisks 250 hp and 320 lb.-ft. of torque.

Most trims come with a six-speed automatic transmission, but the Premium is eligible for the six-speed manual preferred by driving purists. Also, while front-wheel drive is standard with the 2.5 S and its subtrims, all-wheel drive comes standard in the 2.5 Turbo and Premium Plus but is optional for the Preferred and Premium.

The 2022 Mazda3 Hatchback relieves drivers’ concerns about rising gasoline costs with its exceptional fuel efficiency. According to the official EPA estimates, the FWD 2.5 S and its subtrims return 26 city/34 highway. With AWD, the Preferred and Premium achieve 25 city/31 highway; if you opt for the manual gearbox with the Premium, it will give you 24 city/33 highway. The 2.5 Turbo and Turbo Premium Plus give up a bit of efficiency in favor of performance, still achieving good numbers at 23 city/31 highway.

Amenities of Note

The 2.5 S includes a slate of sought-after features, such as automatic on/off LED headlights, side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, rain-sensing wipers, advanced keyless entry (allows you to lock/unlock the vehicle without removing the key fob from your pocket), push-button ignition, power windows with one-touch up/down, a 60/40-split fold-down rear seatback, and a cargo cover. The Select adds two-zone automatic climate control, simulated leather sport seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, while the Preferred goes further with a moonroof, heated front seats, a gloss-black lower bumper, position memory for the side mirrors and power driver’s seat, illuminated vanity mirrors for the driver and front passenger, and an overhead sunglasses holder.

As we alluded to in the intro, the new Carbon Edition boasts a sleek Polymetal Gray Metallic paint color, and red leather seats, plus an adaptive front lighting system, blacked-out wheels, and heated black exterior mirrors. The Premium doesn’t get all of those Carbon-exclusive attributes – just the adaptive front lighting system. This trim also has signature LED headlights and taillights, paddle shifters (automatic transmission models only), a head-up display, and black leather sport seats (the red leather is available). The 2.5 Turbo defaults to synthetic leather sport seats and provides a windshield wiper de-icer, a heated steering wheel, and a frameless auto-dimming rearview mirror. The Premium Plus tops the range with a sporty black rear lip spoiler, a black front air dam, perforated leather sport seats in black or red, and a HomeLink universal garage door opener.

Advanced Safety Technology

Safety is a crucial component of the 2022 Mazda3 Hatchback. In addition to its medley of advanced airbags, the 2.5 S comes with forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane-keep assist, automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, and driver attention alert. The Select, Preferred, and Carbon Edition receive blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, while the Premium is enhanced with traffic sign recognition. Although the 2.5 Turbo doesn’t get traffic sign recognition, the Premium Plus does. The Premium Plus also delivers a surround-view camera system, reverse automatic braking, and traffic jam assist.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The infotainment arrangement in the 2022 Mazda3 Hatchback is quite remarkable. The 2.5 S, Select, and Preferred have an 8.8-inch touchscreen system that also works with voice recognition. Its critical components are Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, and an eight-speaker sound system. The Carbon Edition upgrades to an advanced Bose unit with 12 speakers with aluminum grilles and adds SiriusXM satellite radio. The Premium tacks on navigation, and while navigation is excluded from the 2.5 Turbo, it’s standard again in the Premium Plus.
