Earlier this fall, Mazda North America Operations (MNAO) announced the specs for the current-generation 2017 Mazda3 that recently hit Mazda dealerships across the country. The Mazda3 has repeatedly been honored and has earned awards every year since its introduction, including being named a three-time World Car of the Year finalist as well as being named an Automobile Magazine “All-Star” and an ALG Residual Value Award winner.

The 2017 Mazda3 hits dealership lots incredibly refined as well as repackaged while also offering more content, enhanced sound insulation, and an upscale interior. It also includes the Mazda brand’s “G-Vectoring Control,” which is a Mazda-exclusive technology that uses the engine to refine steering and handling to match the driver’s inputs. Robert Davis, senior VP, U.S. Operations, MNAO, had this to say about the new 2017 Mazda3:

We are more than happy to give our customers what they want with greater availability of the manual transmission. Mazda3 has nearly 15-percent take rate for its manual transmission, with most of those buyers opting for higher trim levels. Where so many competitors have retreated in the segment, we see an opening to engage those who enjoy the driving experience without compromise.

The 2017 Mazda3 is available in three trim levels: Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring. The Sport and Touring models get a 2.0-liter SKYACTIV®-G four-cylinder engine that generates 155 horsepower, while the Grand Touring gets a 2.5-liter SKYACTIV®-G four-cylinder engine that delivers 184 horsepower. Available features across the lineup may include push-button start, a seven-inch display screen with the MAZDA CONNECT™ system, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, voice commands, and more.
