Since its debut in model year 2014, the Mazda3 is certainly one of aesthetic references in its class. 2017 Mazda 3 is particularly well designed and we are surprised to find details that we had not seen at first glance. Lateral line door which extends from the front fender to the rear wing is one example. It makes it more dynamic and continuous profile. To the front, the grille pentagon fits harmoniously with headlights by a chrome strip. This is also the word that comes to mind to sum up the year, harmony.


From the first grip, we discover an array of highly refined edge, both in the design and quality of materials. Soft materials are everywhere inside the car. The ergonomics of the ventilation system controls is however not perfect. The driver’s seat offers many settings, a latitude that finds a particularly pleasant driving position, regardless of your physique. To the rear of 2017 Mazda 3, however, is less generous, down compared to some competitors e.g. the Volkswagen Jetta or the Nissan Sentra.

Two four-cylinder – 2 and 2.5 L – are offered by Mazda. It is the latter that drives the GT version. Without the warrior temperament of the four-cylinder 2.4 L of the Civic SI, this engine offers a great linearity and is discreet. The couple is also readily available in urban driving. The difference in power with 2 L is not so striking. Besides this, the manual transmission is an example to follow, the lever is precise and progressive.


Less opulent models are far from unpleasant to drive, but this 2017 Mazda 3 pushes the argument one step further. No, we are not in the presence of a direct heir of the MazdaSpeed3, but the 2017 Mazda 3 is very neutral cornering without much shaking the passengers. The management also helps, very vivid and precise, without any contact. It is nevertheless in together as tasty recipe.


GT delivered is provided with a series of infotainment touchscreen system which may also operate by means of a dial. The system is surprisingly good and very well presented. The head-up display indicating the speed is not very relevant, however. Additionally, it is peculiar that Mazda chooses to book at Sirius Satellite Radio Technology group. The sound of the Bose system is unsurprisingly a beautiful consistency. The manufacturer remains the benchmark in this vehicle class.


With prices still attractive for the proposed equipment and its many qualities, the 2017 Mazda 3 is certainly one of the first choices to consider in compact. The car is working with an undeniable rigor.

Major Observations

Although it has sporting pretensions, the Mazda3 GT could benefit from a more enduring and powerful braking.

Fuel Consumption
The i-ELOOP 2017 Mazda 3 option converts the energy released when braking system and takes his foot off the accelerator to reduce fuel consumption by up to 5%.

GT Version
Besides its 18-inch wheels, the GT version recognizes its discrete diodes embedded in the front and rear lights.
