All-new 2017 Mazda CX-3 Subcompact Crossover SUV

We all want adventure in our lives, but most of the time it is more about smaller, simpler tasks of daily life. At Yarmouth Mazda, we are always looking for ways to combine these two to make your driving experience more enjoyable and fun. One of our favorite new vehicles, the 2017 Mazda CX-3, just might be able to bring both consistency and excitement into your regular routine. Available in three perfectly priced trims, the 2017 Mazda CX-3 is an amazing combination of style, performance, and technology. Let's take a closer look at why the experts at Yarmouth Mazda think you'll fall hard for the 2017 Mazda CX-3.

No matter which trim level you pick, this SUV comes with a SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder engine that produces 146 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 146 lb.-ft. of torque at 2800 rpm. You are also able to achieve an impressive compression ratio of 13.0:1 when paired with the SKYACTIV-Drive six-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift mode and drive selection switch. You can also add the advanced and extremely responsive i-ACTIV all-wheel-drive system that can help you get up to 6.9 L/100 km highway and 8.2 L/100 km city. When it comes to ride and stopping power, the 2017 Mazda CX-3 delivers thanks to the ABS system with electronic brake force distribution, dynamic stability control, front independent MacPherson strut and rear torsion beam suspension, and rack-and-pinion column electrically assisted power steering. Like all the Mazda vehicles at Yarmouth Mazda, the 2017 Mazda CX-3 powertrain is protected by a limited five-year/100,000 km warranty.

If you plan to use your Mazda crossover to transport your family and friends, then safety is very important. The 2017 Mazda CX-3 is packed with the latest safety features including a standard wide-angle rearview camera, dual front airbags, front side airbags and dual side air curtains, height-adjustable front and rear seat head restraints, and the available Lane Departure Warning and Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring System. As far as protecting your investment, we are big fans of the engine immobilizer theft-deterrent system and the available Vehicle Theft Protection plan.

Because Mazda has always been at the forefront of the latest in-car technology, you will not be surprised that this SUV is loaded with hi-tech features. You get a standard seven-inch colour touchscreen display with Mazda Connect, AM/FM CD player with six speakers, Steering-wheel-mounted Bluetooth controls, and HD radio. Drivers in Nova Scotia can also get a voice-activated navigation system and SirusXM Satellite Radio on some trim levels.

If all of this performance, safety, and technology sound like it makes for an exciting and enjoyable SUV, you'd be right. The best way to experience it for yourself is by contacting Yarmouth Mazda today to schedule a test-drive. We hope to see you soon, and we know you'll enjoy driving the 2017 Mazda CX-3.
