Top 4 Mazda Models of 2017
Mazda makes affordable and sporty vehicles that are ideal for a first car or a fifth car. The 2017 versions are nicer than ever before and showcase Mazda’s blend of comfort, technology, and affordability.
The 2017 Mazda3 has more standard features than ever. Those features include G-Vectoring, an exclusive technology that “uses the engine to refine steering and handling to match the driver’s inputs, and enhanced sound insulation to complement Mazda3’s redesigned upscale interior.” The MSRP of the new Mazda3 is set to start at $17,845. The Mazda3 Sports model includes features like USB connections, Pandora, Mazda Connect, Bluetooth connectivity, remote keyless entry, push-button start, and a seven-inch touch-screen display. Mazda is reporting an EPA-estimated gas mileage of 28 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway with the automatic transmission.
The Mazda6 is larger than the Mazda3 and gives the space some people crave in their sedan. Starting with an MSRP of $21,945 for the Sport trim, you can get an estimated fuel economy of 26 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. It also comes with features like the Mazda Connect Infotainment System, a push button start, remote keyless entry with an “answer back” feature, seven-inch touch-screen display, an auxiliary audio jack, Bluetooth connectivity, a multifunction commander control, and so much more. The safety features include a rearview camera, dynamic stability control, and a traction control system.
The Mazda CX-3 is a compact crossover SUV that affords safety and comfort. It gets an estimated 29 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway on a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that gets 146 horsepower. The CX-3 has plenty of technology features like the Mazda Connect system, commander control knob, and a six-speaker entertainment system. Last year, the CX-3 was even ranked as one of the top safety picks of 2016 by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Some of the other technological features with the basic Sport trim are Bluetooth connectivity, 12-volt power outlet, E911 automatic emergency notification, and a seven-inch full touch-screen display. The CX-3 Sport starts at an MSRP of $19,960.
MX-5 Miata RF
The Miata is an incredibly sleek sports car that has attracted luxury car fanatics all over the world. This year’s model is going to have a 2.0-liter 16-valve 4-cylinder engine with a six-speed Sport automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Even though this vehicle can be considered a “luxury” model, it still has a lower price tag than some others. The starting MSRP for the MX-5 Launch Edition is $33,850 for a manual and $34,925 for an automatic transmission. At the moment, it’s unknown if this is the price you’ll pay for the MX-5 Miata RF when it’s available for public sale. There are only 1,000 models available for the MX-5 Launch Edition, but for a $500 pre-order deposit, you can get a spot in line for the Miata.
