2017 Mazda 3 Sport Review
If you are looking for a 5-door hatchback that offers performance and comfort, the experts at Yarmouth Mazda are excited to introduce you to the 2017 Mazda3 Sport. This versatile and refined hatchback is aimed at driving enthusiasts but is also incredibly cost-effective. Available in three trim levels and nine exterior colours, the 2017 Mazda 3 Sport is absolutely worth a closer look.
The 2017 Mazda3 Sport comes with a choice of two different but equally exciting engines. First, there is the SKYACTIV-G® 2.0-liter DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder engine that produces 155 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 150 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm. If you step up to the top trim you get SKYACTIV-G® 2.5-liter DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder engine that puts out 184 horsepower at 5,700 rpm and 185 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,250 rpm. When it comes to transmissions, you get the six-speed SKYACTIV-MT® that is smaller and lighter than any ever built by Mazda which means you get up to 8.6 L/100 km city and 6.4 L/100 km highway in fuel efficiency. There is also an optional SKYACTIV-Drive® six-speed automatic transmission with
manual-shift mode, Drive Selection switch mode, and paddle shifters. Your ride is smooth and less fatiguing thanks to SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS® G-Vectoring Control, which adjusts power delivery and shifts vehicle weight. Drivers will also enjoy the front independent MacPherson strut suspension with coil springs and stabilizer bar, rear independent multi-link suspension with coil springs and stabilizer bar, Dynamic Stability Control, and rack-and-pinion steering with rpm-sensing variable power assist.
All the performance in the world doesn't mean much without a high level of safety for you and your passengers. Each 2017 Mazda3 Sport is well equipped with all the latest safety features including the standard rearview camera (wide angle), traction control system, dual front
air bags, dual front side air bags, dual side air curtains, whiplash-reducing front seat headrests, and three-point safety belts for all occupants.
