Mazda’s 2021 model year is about to roll out. Now might be the best time to buy a new Mazda.

Throughout the 21st Century, Mazda has been known for its sporty and efficient vehicles. They believe “Driving Matters” and it shows in the way they design vehicles that are an absolute pleasure to drive, from the feel of the steering wheel to how the engines run underneath the hood.

Aesthetically, they’re also top-notch. You can take one look and say “that’s definitely a Mazda” through signature features of the Kodo design language. Not only does it look bold and beautiful on the outside, its interiors are also a known feature for its sleek design and efficiency.

If you’re reading this right now, then you very likely know the kind of crowd the Mazda attracts.

Before you head on over to your nearest Mazda dealership, you might want to do your research so you can pick the right model for you.

We’ve compiled a list of confirmed and expected Mazda models for the 2021 model year.

Subcompact SUVs

If you’re looking for a slightly bigger subcompact SUV that makes for an entertaining and satisfying drive, look no further. The Mazda CX-30 is getting a new name and new features for the 2021 model, making it one of the most anticipated cars for this model year.

Now known as the CX-30 2.5 S, it’s equipped with new standard tech and safety features. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now available across all tiers, and includes Mazda Connected Services with a 3-year trial and in-car Wi-Fi hotspot with 6 months (or 2GB) trial.

Want your own Mazda SUV without breaking the bank? The 2021 Mazda CX-3 is the smallest and most affordable SUV you can get from the brand.

This is all without sacrificing the sleek style, performance, infotainment system, and safety features you’d expect from a Mazda SUV. From the inside, it’s hard to tell it’s their most affordable SUV. The simple interior gives on an upscale vibe for a great price.

Compact Car

Looking for a clever, reliable city driver that makes peak hours something you’d look forward to? The Mazda 3 Hatch is your dream come true.

The new 2021 Mazda 3 will offer three engines when it goes on sale, including an entry-level inline-4. While the larger, turbocharged engine returns for the upcoming model year, Mazda introduced a smaller, 155-horsepower 2-litre inline-4 for the front-wheel drive on the sedan.

More details will be available this fall, but expect better fuel efficiency and more powerful driving in the vehicle now called the Mazda 3 2.5 S.

Many car enthusiasts are looking forward to the new turbocharged Skyactiv-G paired exclusively with a 6-speed automatic all-wheel-drive. Originally only found in the Mazda 6 and CX-9, you can now more affordably enjoy 227 horsepower and 420 Nm of torque.

Midsize Sedan

Want a top-of-the-line midsize family sedan that still puts the driver’s comfort and pleasant driving experience at the forefront? The Mazda 6 has maintained its dominance in its segment for a good reason

While the best midsize sedan in its class isn’t due for an upgrade until 2022, there’s no reason not to consider it for 2021.

The Mazda 6 is the Japanese automaker’s top-of-the-line sedan. It’s well known for being on top of its class for the excellent driving dynamics and clean and sleek aesthetic that people love.

It manages great fuel economy and driving power, even with its standard 187 hp engine. It’s adequately powered for the daily drive and is a pleasant, driver-centric vehicle despite its popularity as a family sedan.

This vehicle glides over everything with ease, corners with confidence, turns directly and effortlessly, but is still stiff and composed enough to make long drives comfortable.

Full-Size SUV

Size, power, and comfort—the 2021 Mazda CX-9 has it all. It’s stylish and imposing while remaining far ahead of its closest competitors in its segment.


Best known for its Mazda SkyActiv engine with Dynamic Pressure Technology, it produces 230 horsepower and 420 torque for an amazing drive.

It’s also the only vehicle in its segment to be sporty but come off as high-class. It’s an impressive vehicle you’d love to show around while remaining a comfortable ride for you, the driver, and up to 7 other passengers.

Long rides, even the most adventurous ones, will remain comfortable and worry-free thanks to its incomparable handling. The standard 2021 Mazda CX-9 is equipped with i-ACTIVSENSE technology, one of the most advanced safety suites out there, so you can relax.

Feel free to reach out to your nearest Mazda dealership. You’ll be informed as soon as these vehicles become available and be assisted in choosing the best one to address your needs and wants. No matter what segment you’re shopping in, it’s guaranteed there’s a Mazda for you.
