When a vehicle has the perfect balance of aggressive performance and nimble handling, the slightest curve in the road can send a chill up your spine. It’s this kind of feeling that inspired the agility of the 2017 Mazda3 iSport. Like its name suggests, this vehicle moves like an athlete by employing the latest advancements in engine technology in combination with Mazda’s legendary design.

Plus, the iSport trim contains exclusive features and tools that allow drivers of Doral, Miami, Hialeah, and Kendall to access any entertainment or safety option needed for an inspiring drive. Each gadget included in this dynamic vehicle has been created to thrill and engage you along the road.

To give you more insight into the amenities within this compact sedan, Ocean Mazda has compiled this 2017 Mazda3 iSport review. After just a hint of what this car offers, you’ll be ready for an electrifying drive down Ocean Avenue.


The 2017 Mazda3 iSport contains a host of advancements that makes this vehicle hard to resist. The 2.0L SKYACTIV®-G motor presents 155 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque, both of which make easy work of accelerating and whipping around corners. However, where this car’s power truly lies is in the SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY Vehicle Dynamics with G- Vectoring Control. By adjusting the power delivery and shifting its weight, this car effortlessly cuts around sharp turns.

On top of that, the Mazda3 iSport has class-leading fuel efficiency that benefits both the environment and your wallet. With an EPA-estimated 28 MPG city and an EPA-estimated 37 MPG highway[1], this vehicle helps you avoid spending too much time at the gas pump.


With the intelligent MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system in the 2017 Mazda3 iSport, you can access music, Bluetooth® hands-free capabilities, and Pandora® using the seven-inch touchscreen display. Plus, with the addition of optional navigation, you’ll be able to get to any destination without hassle.

To keep you from getting distracted on the road, the SMS Text Message Auto Delivery and Voice Reply system allows you to listen to texts you receive from your friends and family, and reply to them using voice recognition. That way, you won’t be tempted to pick up your phone while driving. Drivers have also raved about the user-friendliness of the center console knob, which serves as another way to search through your entertainment options on the touchscreen.


While the 2017 Mazda3 iSport captivates drivers with its compelling movement and capability, safety and security are still paramount. The standard rearview camera keeps you aware of other vehicles approaching when you’re in reverse. Additionally, driver assistance technologies monitor your surroundings and alert you about dangerous situations.

The optional Blind Spot Monitor uses sensors to survey your blind spots and will provide visual and audible warnings when another vehicle is detected. Also available is Lane Departure Warning, which keeps track of lane markers and alerts you if it notices your vehicle moving out of place.


With capable performance and connection to high-tech amenities, the 2017 Mazda3 iSport has earned a spot as one of the most popular vehicles on the market. With so many fine details contained within this sporty sedan, the only way to get the full effect is to grab a seat behind the wheel.
