2017 Mazda3 Review

Our team at Ocean Mazda wrote this 2017 Mazda3 review for our customers in Doral, Miami, Hialeah, Kendall, and the surrounding communities.

We believe that it’s a great car. So great, in fact, that we want to tell the people of Florida all about it!

If you have any questions about this vehicle’s stylish exterior, powerful engine, impressive performance, life-saving safety technology, or 5-door option, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. One of our representatives would be happy to speak with you.


By this point, you’ve probably heard lots of talk about Mazda’s unique KODO design. Dubbed “Soul of Motion,” it’s intended to make the sedan look like a predatory animal, stalking its next meal, poised to pounce.

This is how the 2017 Mazda3 gives off an impression of stark energy and sheer power through its sophisticated exterior design.


Best of all, its standard 2.0L SKYACTIV®-G 4-cylinder engine (with variable intake valve timing) lets you harness all that power.

It delivers a striking 155 horsepower at 6,000 RPM, as well as an impressive 150 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 RPM. This finely engineered piece of machinery won’t even redline until it hits 6,800 RPM.

Yet it doesn’t achieve such power at the expense of efficiency. With front-wheel drive (FWD) and an automatic transmission, you’ll get up to 28 MPG in the city, 37 MPG on the highway, and 31 MPG combined.* And, with FWD and a manual transmission, you’ll get up to 28 MPG in the city, 37 MPG on the highway, and 32 MPG combined.*


This is some next-generation technology. Mazda’s SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control will smooth out your ride, making it less taxing on both you and your passengers.

It does so with minute adjustments to power delivery and weight distribution; you won’t even notice that it’s happening, but you’ll notice the results.


Here’s an overview of some of the available features included in the Mazda3’s suite of protective safety systems, i-ACTIVSENSE®:

  • High Beam Control
  • Adaptive Front-Lighting System
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Lane Departure Warning System
  • Lane-Keep Assist
  • Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring
  • Smart Brake Support
  • Smart City Brake Support
  • Mazda Radar Cruise Control

2017 MAZDA3 5-DOOR

Here’s the coolest part: They also make the 2017 Mazda3 in a 5-door hatchback model! This option significantly boosts cargo space, giving you 20.2 cubic feet with the rear seats up and 47.1 cubic feet with the rear seats down.


Would you like to try the 2017 Mazda3 Sedan or Hatchback for yourself? Well, if you live in Doral, Miami, Hialeah, Kendall, or anywhere else close by, you can! Just contact us at Ocean Mazda to schedule a test drive.
