Mazda claims that they are going to produce a cleaner, crisper, newer, and also sharper 2017 Mazda 3 sedan which is said to be better than before. If you are looking for a compact ride with a proven reputation of a good handle and improved efficiency, you can consider this newer line. After all, Mazda 3 has gained its own positive name and image so it is likely that the new product will only enhance all the good things from this compact sedan.
2017 Mazda 3 Sedan Development and Upgrade
Although Mazda has decided that they are going to refresh their 2017 model, the ride doesn’t need much of the improvement, really. There is a reason that Mazda 3 sedan has earned itself the title of one of the best cars and the refreshed work will only enhance some of the good works. Mazda claims that there will be some tweaks on the interior cabin, exterior look, the addition of the active and safety features, and also the inclusion of the G-Vectoring Control technology (exclusively developed by Mazda) that is designed for a better steering response.
2017 Mazda 3 Sedan Exterior Design
You may think that the sedan doesn’t need much work or improvement but with the refreshed look, it is hoped that the new 2017 Mazda 3 sedan will be better –and it seems that the company has done a good job, creating a sharper line. With redesigned headlights and grille for an aggressive outcome, it looks matching to the LED headlights available on the high trim. The rear bumper comes with a new design to deliver crisper feel, focusing on the modern and youthful effect.
The overall effect looks good with the addition of 18 inch wheels – although other options are also available with the 16 inch dimension. For the colors, you can choose the Gray Machine Metallic or the Blue Eternal Mica (replacing the Reflex Blue Mica).
2017 Mazda 3 Sedan Interior Cabin
While the exterior design only experiences a slight difference, the major updates are happening on the inside. The new steering wheel, for a starter, will look similar to the one used in the CX-9 crossover. There will be an electric park brake, better trim on the door panel, optional full floor head up display, and the bigger door pockets on the new 2017 Mazda 3 sedan. Optional heated steering wheel with improved upholstery is also included, including the G-Vectoring Control that can help reducing the torque when you have to tackle a corner. Expect a more comfortable cabin with quieter setting too.
2017 Mazda 3 Sedan Engine
For the engine, there won’t be any changes. It will still use the four cylinder 2.0 liter engine that is delivering 155 hp of power and the inline four 2.5 liter engine producing 184 hp of power. You can choose between the manual or auto six speed transmission.
The sedan should available around September with price info should be available soon. Hopefully, the new 2017 Mazda 3 sedan will be sold at around $19,000 for the sedan and $19,500 for the hatchback.
