2017 Mazda3: Constantly Improving

2017 Mazda3: Constantly Improving
The 2017 Mazda3 is still a blast to drive, but it is also more fuel-efficient than ever before.

When the Mazda3 first arrived on the Canadian market back in 2004, consumers were immediately impressed with its driving dynamics, euro-inspired design and high-end interior. Over the years, the Mazda3 gained a reputation for being a driver-focused car meant for those who want to have fun behind the wheel. Now in its third generation, the 2017 Mazda3 is still a driver’s car, but it is also so much more.

The 2017 Mazda3 is Now More Balanced than Ever

The 2017 Mazda3 is still a blast to drive, but it is also more fuel-efficient than ever before. For 2017, it also incorporates a new technology called G-Vectoring control which is designed to make the car a lot more stable at lower speeds as well as on the highway by using the engine’s torque to limit movements and weight shifting.

In real-world terms, you will feel less like you are moving from left to right or vice-versa in your seat when driving around in the city, and on the highway the steering wheel will also have less movement underneath your hand. Mazda’s G-Vectoring Control just won the Automotive Journalist Association of Canada’s Technology of the Year award, and you will understand why as soon as you get behind the wheel.

With the introduction of SKYACTIV technology on the Mazda3 nearly 5 years ago, Mazda can now add fuel efficiency to the growing list of features found in its compact model. The 2017 Mazda3 takes full advantage of everything SKYACTIV has to offer with two engines that are as powerful as they are efficient.

The 2017 Mazda3 is powered out of the gate by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 155 horsepower and 150 lb.-ft. of torque with an average fuel economy rating of 8.5 liters per 100 kilometers in the city, and 6.2 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway.

The GT trim gets a more powerful 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that delivers 184 horsepower and 185 lb.-ft. of torque. Even with its increase in horsepower, the 2017 Mazda3 GT remains fuel-efficient with an average fuel economy rating of 8.5 liters per 100 kilometers in the city and 6.4 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway when paired with Mazda’s SKYACTIV 6-speed automatic transmission and i-Eloop regenerative technology. The 2017 Mazda3 is also offered with a six-speed manual.

A More Refined 2017 Mazda3

There were many changes made to the 2017 Mazda3 that go beyond the addition of G-Vectoring Control. Step inside the new 2017 Mazda3 and you will find a host of improvements that include a new steering wheel, different trims, new dials and graphics for the displays, and improved sound insulation that make the drive even quieter both in the city and on the highway. A heated steering wheel is also offered.

Starting at $15,900, the 2017 Mazda3 is also available as a hatchback with increased cargo capacity. Called the Sport, the 2017 Mazda3 five-door is available starting at $19,550.
