mazda3 2

According to U.S. News & World Report, the 2017 Mazda3 has been named #1 compact vehicle.  That’s an especially impressive feat when you consider that there were 24 entrants in the compact class.  Available as a 4-door sedan or a 5-door hatchback, the Mazda3 is available in four trim levels, including Sport, Touring, Touring 2.6 and Grand Touring.


The power behind the Mazda3 is a standard 2.0 liter, four-cylinder engine with 155 horsepower.  However, upper trim levels offer a 2.5 liter, four-cylinder engine with 184 horsepower, for faster acceleration.  Standard transmission is a 6-speed manual, with 6-speed automatic available as an option.  Fuel economy for the 2017 Mazda3 automatic transmission is 28 mpg city and 37 mpg highway.


If you’re a fan of hatchbacks, you’ll appreciate the cargo space configuration for the 2017 Mazda3.  Both the hatchback and sedan models are equipped with 60/40 split-folding rear seats  For example, the hatchback offers 20.2 cubic feet of storage capacity behind its rear seats.  Fold the rear seats down, and you’ll gain more than double the cargo space at 47.1 cubic feet.




New for the 2017 Mazda3 model is G-Vectoring Control, an innovative mechanism that elicits precise steering response.  As an add-on, you can request Mazda’s highly respected safety package, i-Activsense.  New this year are two new features to i-Activsense.  One is a new camera that detects pedestrians and the other is a feature that reads road signs.
