The Fine Qualities of the 2017 Mazda3 that Make it an Excellent Choice for Connecticut Drivers

2017 Mazda3 Interior & Exterior - KODO Soul of Motion Design Language

  • For the 2017 model year, the Mazda3 takes on a fresher, more athletic look. It brings an aggressively styled grille and front fascia, with available LED headlights peering out across the road.
  • The 5-door hatchback version receives a restyled bumper, and there will be two new body colors available for 2017: Eternal Blue Mica, taking the place of Blue Reflex Mica, with Machine Gray Metallic joining the color rotation completely new!
  • The redesign continues on the interior, with a new steering wheel shape carrying over from the new Mazda CX-9 SUV. Gone is the manual parking brake, replaced by an electric parking brake, and that space is now utilized by a central storage console. Another addition for 2017 - an available heated steering wheel - adds to the sense of sophistication, and available upholstery upgrades offer to give you a supple, relaxing interior to rival the best of them.

2017 Mazda3 Performance - In Celebration of Drivers

  • The engine offering hasn't changed much from 2016.5 to 2017. There's a standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine sending out 155 horsepower on the i trim, while the s trim models bring a more powerful 2.5-liter inline-four kicking out 184 horsepower.
  • A big plus for those who are afraid of seeing the manual transmission go the way of the Dodo, either engine can be mated to a manual transmission, or there's an available six-speed automatic as well.
  • 2017 did bring one very useful addition that you're sure to feel during your drive: Mazda's G-Vectoring Control, which is a steering system that is used to reduce torque as you corner, improving the response of steering input, making it easier to avoid both oversteering and understeering.

2017 Mazda3 - Safety Through Technology

  • Part of being driver-focused means a focus on safety. The standard safety offering includes: a rearview camera, Brake Assist, Hill Launch Assist, and the Mazda-exclusive SKYACTIV® Body Ring Structure.
  • For those who want a little more tech at their backs when they're out on the road, you can take advantage of the following available safety and driver-assist technologies: Forward Collision Warning, Lane-Keeping Assist, Blind-Spot Monitoring, and Adaptive Cruise Control, among quite a few others.
  • An improvement over previous versions, the optional Head-Up Display - which places your important information in your line of sight without it being obtrusive - is now full-color.
