Out of the four trim levels available on the Mazda 3, the GX is the second-lowest, offering drivers an upgrade from the G trim, but not as many features as with the GS or GT trims. This particular trim is available with either the standard Mazda 3 body style or as the Mazda 3 Sport, which is slightly shorter with a more spacious cargo area.

Mazda 3 GX Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The GX trim of the Mazda 3 is only available with the SkyActiv-G 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with 16 cylinders and a DOHC style. Expect 155 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque. It comes standard with the SkyActiv-MT 6-speed manual, but you can upgrade to the SkyActiv-Drive 6-speed automatic featuring a Sport Mode. All models are front-wheel drive. Sticking with the manual transmission gives a fuel economy of 8.0 L/100km in the city and 5.8 on the highway while the automatic improves the numbers to 7.9 and 5.7 L/100km, respectively. Those figures are for the Mazda 3. The Mazda 3 Sport GX gets 8.2 L/100km city/5.9 highway with the manual and 8.0 city/5.9 highway with the automatic.

Mazda 3 GX Technology and Entertainment

The instrument panel in the GX trim on either body style includes a tachometer, warning lights, a trip computer, an HMI commander switch, and a rearview camera. It is also navigation-ready with only a navigation SD card necessary. The AM/FM system in this trim includes 6 speakers as well as HD radio, auxiliary audio input, and 2 USB ports. Drivers also get MAZDA CONNECT with a 7-inch color touch-screen in the Mazda 3 GX. This includes Bluetooth hands-free phone, audio controls on the steering wheel, SMS texting audio for reply and delivery, Stitcher Internet Radio, and Aha Internet Radio.

GX Comfort and Interior

The seating in the GX trim includes a 6-way manually-adjustable driver seat and 4-way manually-adjustable passenger seat as well as black cloth upholstery. The Mazda 3 GX has a folding bench seat in the rear while the Mazda 3 Sport GX has a rear seatback that splits 60/40 before folding down. Interior storage throughout the cabin includes a seat-back pocket on the passenger side, front door storage with room for water bottles, dual front cup holders, and coat hooks. There is also a 12-volt power outlet, power windows, air-conditioning, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, double-action power door locks, push button start, keyless entry, and a day/night rearview mirror.

GX Exterior Styling

No matter the body style, the GX trim is available in Snowflake White Pearl, Aluminum Metallic, Jet Black Mica, Deep Crystal Blue Mica, or Titanium Flash Mica. This model rides on 16-inch steel wheels that have full wheel covers and all-season tires with a temporary spare. Either body styles of the Mazda 3 GX has automatic headlight shutoff, variable intermittent windshield wipers, a rear window defroster, a dual exhaust port, halogen headlights, and both the door handles and power-operated door mirrors are body-colored.
