The Mazda3 is a remarkable model that has been making its appearance on noteworthy lists lately. It edged out the Honda Civic for honors as the Best Car for Teen Drivers, and now it appears it will repeat its placement on the 10 Best Cars list. Take note, that’s three years running as a popular best vehicle. The Mazda3 resembles a typical Mazda sports car, but it offers more flexibility, an admirable trait. For starters, there’s more cargo space, as the rear seats can fold down. With Mazda3’s hatchback, it makes it easier for you to load and unload your packages or gear. Not to mention, Fido can easily hop into the hatch!
Mazda doesn’t rest on its laurels, as it continues to improve its popular Mazda3. Notice that the Mazda3 hatchback model sports a different rear bumper which lends it a sportier feel. An optional heated steering wheel is available, as are LED headlights, an electric parking brake and new upholstery options. Improvements have been made to significantly reduce the noise levels inside the vehicle. Also new this year is a more responsive steering system, G-Vectoring Control.
Choose between a standard 6-speed manual transmission or an optional 6-speed automatic. For those who crave a little extra excitement, the stick delivers! The engine is a 2.0 liter, 4-cylinder on the 3-i models and 2.5 liter, inline-4 on 3-s models.
Safety is always a top concern, and Mazda offers i-Activsense. This is a safety suite that is capable of reading road signs and can sense if you begin drifting out of your intended lane. It’s only available as an option on the Mazda3. However, it’s certainly well worth the additional investment, for such features as adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, blind spot monitoring and forward collision warning.
Discover why the Mazda3 landed on the Best 10 list again. Not only is it affordable, it’s a well-designed and reliable vehicle. Hands down, the 2017 Mazda3 should be on your short list.
