2017 Mazda3 Gets More than Just a Makeover
If you’ve read any of our many past blog posts, then you already know that we aren’t overly modest when we talk about the great vehicles we sell here at Rosen Mazda. The reason for that is because Mazda makes the best cars on the road today. See what we mean by not being too modest? It’s hard not to be proud of a vehicle like the Mazda3 when it is currently the number one compact car on the market and the 2017 version just got a whole lot better.
Mazda’s continued success with the 3 is due in no small part to the work their engineers have put into improving, not just the look, but the overall performance and power as well. The 2017 Mazda3 features two options for powertrains. A 2.0 liter 4 cylinder should be more than enough to get you and your sporty compact to where you need to go with 155 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque. If you do need more power, however, you are in luck as the 2.5 liter, 4 cylinder version ups the ante to 184 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque. Both options are matched to a six-speed manual with the option of automatic transmission as well. For fuel efficiency, the 3 fairs well again achieving a reported 25 miles to the gallon in the city and 33 MPG on the highway.
Power means nothing without total control of the driving experience and that’s something Mazda’s engineers take just as seriously. The excellent handling pairs perfectly with all that power and the Mazda3’s superior steering and brakes makes driving on curved and winding roads fun, safe and easy. Three trim levels are offered for the Mazda3 in both a sedan and hatch version. The trim levels are Sport, Touring and Grand Touring.
