Updated 2022 Mazda3 Hatchback Brings All-New Carbon Edition Trim and More

Apart from announcing the 2022 model year refreshes to its crossover lineup, Mazda USA has also updated its sole hatchback available in the US, the Mazda3 Hatchback. We at Fontana Mazda have recently added the 2022 Mazda3 Hatchback and other 2022 Mazda models to our Fontana, CA showroom lineup and cannot wait to share more details with you. We dabble into the 2022 Mazda3 Hatchback in this blog and tell you what’s new. 

New Carbon Edition Trim  

Besides offering customers a choice of three engine options, two powertrains, and many package options, the biggest change or addition the 2022 Mazda3 Hatchback brings over its predecessor, along with the 2022 Mazda3 Sedan, is the new Carbon Edition trim level.   

The unique trim comes exclusively in the Polymetal Gray exterior paint and red-leather upholstery, along with 18-inch gloss black aluminum-alloy wheels and gloss black heated mirrors, which further accentuate the unique color scheme.

Performance and Features

In terms of performance, the 2022 Mazda3 Hatchback 2.5 S Carbon Edition shares its underpinnings with the mid-spec Mazda3 2.5 S Preferred trim, including the naturally aspirated 2.5-liter Skyactiv engine capable of 186 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque. The engine is married to a six-speed automatic transmission and only has a front-wheel drive. That said, the Carbon Edition adds a 12-speaker Bose premium audio system with aluminum speaker grilles, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and heated front seats over the lower trims.   

As with every 2022 Mazda model, all trims of the 2022 Mazda3 Hatchback come standard with Mazda’s updated i-ACTIVSENSE® safety suite with additions like Smart Brake Support Reverse and Driver Attention Alert.
