2017 Mazda3 Review
Finding an affordable but comfortable and dynamic compact car is not always an easy task. Thankfully, in the 2017 Mazda3, the experts at Moffatt's Mazda have the perfect four-door sedan for drivers in and around Barrie, ON. Available in three trim levels — GX, GS, and GT — the 2017 Mazda3 to packed with safety, technology, and performance. Let's take a closer look at why the sales and service staff at Moffatt's Mazda are so excited about introducing our customers to the 2017 Mazda3.
While the 2017 Mazda3 is incredibly efficient with fuel efficiency of up to 6.2 L/100 km highway*, it is also extremely sporty. On the GX and GS trim levels, you get a standard SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter DOHC, 16-valve, four-cylinder, direct injection engine with a compression ratio of 13.0:1 that produces 155 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 150 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm. If you step up to the 2017 Mazda3 GT, you can experience the SKYACTV-G 2.5-liter DOHC, 16-valve, four-cylinder engine 184 horsepower at 5,700 rpm and 185 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,250 rpm. To control all this power, all trim levels come with a standard SKYACTIV-MT six-speed manual transmission, front-wheel drive, and rack-and-pinion steering with rpm-sensing variable power assist. Mazda also makes sure your ride is smooth and predictable with front independent MacPherson strut suspension, rear independent multi-link suspension with coil springs and stabilizer bar, and an anti-lock brake system with Electronic Brake Force Distribution.
Since safety is such a major part of everything we do at Moffatt's Mazda, we are happy to stand behind the 2017 Mazda3. All trims are equipped with dual front, front side, and side air bags, three-point safety belts for all occupants, driver’s and front passenger’s safety-belt pretensioners with force limiters, and whiplash-reducing front seat headrests. If you add the Premium Package on the GT, drivers also get to experience Mazda's Lane-Keep Assist System, Lane Departure Warning System, Smart Brake Support, and Forward Obstruction Warning.
Performance and safety are always appreciated, but modern drivers and passengers also demand to stay connected, entertained, and comfortable while they ride. The 2017 Mazda3 is loaded with the latest standard and optional hi-tech features including seven-inch colour touchscreen display with Mazda Connect, voice-activated navigation system, steering-wheel-mounted Bluetooth and audio controls, integrated AHA Internet Radio functionality, and HomeLink wireless control system. If want to take the tech to the next level, the Premium Package comes with an impressive nine-speaker premium Bose audio system with Centerpoint surround sound, AudioPilot noise compensation technology, and SurroundStage signal processing. As far as luxury, the 2017 Mazda3 offers available leather-trimmed upholstery, adjustable heated front seats, and a Leather-wrapped, heated steering wheel.
