Customers choosing the LX, EX and EX-L Navi will have 174 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque and will change gears with a continuously variable transmission. The Sport and Sport Touring models will make 180 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque and are available with a six-speed manual or the previously mentioned CVT but with optional paddle shifters available.

Mazda has equipped its new hatchback with the same engine that it has used in other models over the years. It does make a bit more horsepower than the power plant used by the Sport and Sport Touring models of the Civic Hatchback, but not enough to significantly matter.
