    • The 4-door Mazda3 with the 2.5L engine offers Gastonia drivers an EPA-estimated 25/34 mpg city/highway when paired with the manual transmission, 27/28 mpg city/highway when paired with the automatic transmission, and increases efficiency further to 28/37 mpg city/highway when paired with the automatic transmission and i-ELOOP.
