If you're considering the 2019 Mazda3 for your future errands, work commutes, and road trips, you can have your model-related questions answered before securing a test drive at Mazda of Olympia. When you arrive at our Carriage Street location after commuting 15 minutes from the nearby Lacey community, you'll already know all the trim options and high points that distinguish the Mazda3.

  • Why should I buy the Mazda3? Aside from the reliable performance and array of innovative amenities in the 2019 Mazda3, the most appealing reason to purchase or lease this model is the two body styles it comes in. Choosing between a sedan and a hatchback means you get a say about your interior space.
  • How many trim levels does the Mazda3 have? The 2019 Mazda3 sedan comes with four trim/package options (base, select, preferred and premium), and the Mazda3 hatchback comes crafted in three (base, preferred and premium).
  • How much is the Mazda3 lease? If you like the joy that comes from being a Mazda lessee, you can find out the cost of a 2019 Mazda3 lease by talking to a member of the Mazda of Olympia finance team. You can also browse our exclusive Mazda3 incentives online to save on your lease.
  • Is the Mazda3 AWD? If you purchase or lease the 2019 Mazda3 sedan base trim, you'll only have the standard front-wheel-drive system. However, in the remaining three sedan packages and all three hatchback trims, you'll also have the option to upgrade to an all-wheel-drive system in addition to front-wheel drive.
  • Can the Mazda3 tow? The 2019 Mazda3 does not have a sturdy enough frame to handle the strain of towing an external load of cargo. However, the Mazda3 hatchback houses up to 20.1 cubic-feet of cargo capacity compared to the sedan's 13.2 cubic-feet of trunk space.

  • Is the Mazda3 electric? The 2019 Mazda3 is not an electric mode of transportation, but you'll still benefit from driving a vehicle with excellent fuel economy (ex. highway mileage up to 35 mpg when the model has a front-wheel-drive system).
  • Does the Mazda3 have Apple CarPlay? In the 2019 Mazda3 sedan, Apple CarPlay® integration is absent in the base trim but added to the Select, Preferred and Premium packages. In the hatchback version, Apple iPhone compatibility comes standard in the base trim and two upgrade packages. The same applies to Android Auto™ smartphone integration.
  • Does the Mazda3 come with a remote start? The same applies to the Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry and Start System as it does for Apple CarPlay® smartphone integration. You'll find this remote-start system on all three hatchback trims options and the three upgrade package options for the sedan. The base Mazda sedan trim only features a remote keyless entry system.
  • Is it easy to update the Mazda3 software? If you need to perform a software update on the MAZDA CONNECT™ Infotainment System, plug in the USB drive containing the latest update into your infotainment system. Then select the following options on your touchscreen: Settings, System, Music Database Update, the correct version of the update, and confirm to install the software update.
