Standard Transmission Mazdas for the Driving Enthusiast

Last updated 5 years ago

Automatic transmissions may dominate most of the auto market, but manual transmissions are far from gone in the Mazda lineup. For drivers who prefer complete control over their ride as opposed to an automated and disconnected driving experience, the Mazda lineup offers several manual transmission models for every budget. Just take a look at a few of the most popular models available at your Chantilly Mazda dealer:


The subcompact Mazda2 offers plenty of performance with a small price tag. A 1.5L DOHC four-cylinder engine is paired with a precision-tuned suspension and Electronic Power Assist Steering for nimble handling and immediate response when cornering. And of course, an available 5-speed manual transmission with a short shift throw allows you to quickly throw it between gears whether you’re driving normally or making tight maneuvers.

MX-5 Miata Sport

The iconic MX-5 Miata is one of the most popular convertibles on the market, and the latest model continues to live up to its performance-oriented roots and value-driven legacy. Thanks to its light weight and perfect 50/50 weight distribution, the 2013 MX-5 Miata can take corners efficiently with less oversteer or understeer, and its 6-speed manual transmission features close gear ratios to help you get the most out of the power band.


The Mazda3 is the most popular model in the entire Mazda lineup, and for good reason. This vehicle offers loads of customization options inside and out, not the least of which includes three different engines and five transmission options. Inside the new 2013 Mazda3, the spotlight is on the new SKYACTIV®-MT 6-speed manual transmission, which offers the shortest shift throw in the segment and is designed out of light, high-strength materials for superior fuel efficiency.
