Mazda began producing the Mazda3 line in 2003 with the 2004 model as a line of affordable compact sedans. The company introduced the performance-oriented Sport model in 2006 with the 2007 model. It came in either a 4-speed automatic or 5-speed manual gas-powered 2-liter 4-cylinder engine. Used 2007 Mazda3 Sports are available in a variety of colors, including galaxy gray mica, ice blue metallic, phantom purple mica and shimmering sand metallic, with interiors in beige or black cloth, and black leather.
The second generation line, beginning with the 2009 model, offered a retooled design and dual exhaust. The manufacturer updated the line again in 2013 with a new Skyactiv chassis, a lower drag coefficient and improved gas mileage. The 2015 Mazda3 Sport 6-speed manual transmission provides a fuel economy of 29 miles per gallon for city driving and 41 miles per gallon on the highway, while the 6-speed automatic transmission provides 30 miles per gallon for city driving and 41 miles per gallon on the highway.
