    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2017 Mazda Mazda3 OVERVIEW

    The Mazda3 is a compact model, offered as a five-door hatchback or a sedan. Where some competitors produce appliances, the Mazda3 combines car ownership affordability with a fun-to-drive ownership experience.

    What's New for 2017

    Now standard across the model line is G-Vectoring Control, proprietary technology that uses the engine to refine steering and handling to match the driver’s inputs. Enhanced sound insulation coincides with an update to the Mazda3’s interior.

    Mazda also simplified the Mazda3’s trim levels. The top-end Mazda3 Grand Touring edition now offers the Premium Package and a suite of advanced i-ACTIVESENSE safety technologies. Equipment shuffling and additional new packages accompany these changes.

    Choosing Your Mazda Mazda3

    The 2017 Mazda3 is offered in Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring trims. To simplify matters, the previous “i” and “s” designations representing the smaller and larger engines, respectively, have been dropped.

    Now, all Sport and Touring models are powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, while the Touring 2.5 and Grand Touring are powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine.

    The base engine makes 155 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque; the larger engine makes 184 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy for both engines comes in as high as 28 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway.

    Sport

    The Sport model ($17,845 for the sedan and $19,095 for the hatchback) is the standard package, but there is nothing basic offered here. All models come with halogen headlights, daytime running lights, and power side mirrors. This model also comes with keyless entry and push-button start, power windows and door locks, a tilt and telescopic steering column, steering wheel-mounted controls, cruise control, a 12-volt outlet, and dual map lights.

    Cloth seats, a 60-40 fold-down rear seat, a seven-inch color display, a six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, and Mazda Connect infotainment are all standard. You also get Pandora, Aha, and Stitcher, two USB inputs, an audio jack, and a 12-volt outlet.

    The $1,000 Sport Preferred package brings in 16-inch alloy wheels, heated body-colored side mirrors with integrated turn signals, premium cloth-trimmed sport seats, automatic headlights, advanced blind spot monitoring, and rear cross traffic alert.

    Add $1,050 when choosing the automatic transmission. Prices do not include $835 for the destination charge ($880 in Alaska).

    Touring

    The Touring model ($20,445 for the sedan and $22,245 for the hatchback) brings in dual exhaust with bright tips and a rear roof spoiler. Also included is dual-zone climate control, black imitation leather seats, a power-operated driver’s seat, heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The $1,500 Popular Equipment package adds a body-colored rear decklid spoiler, a shark fin antenna, a nine-speaker Bose audio system, a power sliding glass moonroof with an interior sunshade, and illuminated visor vanity mirrors.

    Touring 2.5

    Only the hatchback offers the Touring 2.5 model ($22,395). The most significant change here is the larger engine is used.

    Grand Touring

    The top-of-the-line Grand Touring trim ($23,895) pulls out all the stops, especially when the available packages are selected. Still, this model brings in such changes as a black metallic front grille insert and a power sliding glass moonroof with one-touch open feature and an interior sunshade. Other upgrades include leather-trimmed sport seats and a nine-speaker Bose audio system. The available Premium package ($1,600) adds Bi-LED headlights with auto leveling, adaptive front lighting, LED combination lights, a heated steering wheel, navigation and paddle shifters for automatic transmission models. Driver assistance items such as lane departure warning, lane-keep assist, brake support, and radar cruise control are part of an i-ACTIVSENSE safety package ($1,100). An i-ELOOP package ($800) is offered with the automatic transmission. This package brings in an i-ELOOP regenerative engine braking system along with active grille shutters.

    CarsDirect Tip

    Very few models offer a manual transmission across all trims, but that’s what Mazda does except in the Touring hatchback. If you have never driven a stick shift before, the smooth shifting manual in the Mazda3 is easy to learn. As for the much-heralded MazdaSpeed3 performance edition, rumors of its return are just that: rumors.
