What's New for 2021: Mazda

September 18, 2020

Mazda's small but robust lineup reaches higher into the premium segment this year with a new Carbon Edition and fully loaded Signature trims on select models. There are no new models for 2021, but some of the smaller Mazdas have some of the largest changes. 

The CX-3 small crossover marches on despite the CX-30, and a turbocharged engine finally returns to the 2021 Mazda 3 compact sedan and hatchback. The CX-30 gets the same available turbocharged engine as the Mazda 3. The MX-5 Miata remains the same. 

Most 2021 Mazda models come with more standard convenience and safety features, including an 8.8-inch display screen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility on all models, and automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, active lane control, and automatic high beams. 

The cosmetic Carbon Edition trim darkens the profile of the CX-5 and CX-9 crossover SUVs, as well as the 2021 Mazda 6 mid-size sedan. Gray body paint with black alloy wheels and accents contrast the red leather interior with black stitching. They slot under the top Signature trim in pricing schemes, which have all gone up for 2021.

Here are the changes:
