Compact Crossover Delivers the Goods

Whether you want a beautiful and efficient vehicle filled with luxury features or a tough little off-road mudder that holds its own against more aggressive looking four-wheelers, you must consider the Mazda CX-3. When the Mazda CX-3 hit the nation’s highways last year, it impressed consumers and auto reviewers alike with its KODO – Soul of Motion design and available amenities like radar cruise control, leather and suede seats and a heads up active driving display. The vehicle was nominated for best World Car Design by 73 journalists who fell in love with the dynamic handling, comfortable ride and low price tag. The 2017 Mazda CX-3 will be making its way to the showroom at Chapman Mazda this July.

i-ACTIV All-wheel Drive Earns Mudfest Victory

You can imagine the snickers from the Jeeps and Range Rover lovers of the world when the little CX-3 pulled up to the starting line at the annual Northwest Automotive Press Association Mudfest last year. They weren’t laughing for long as the CX-3 used its predictive i-ACTIVE drive system that automatically delivers power to the wheel that needs it the most to win its class.

Price Remains Same This Year

The starting suggested retail price for the 2017 Mazda CX-3 is $19,960, same as for the 2016 model. There are few changes from the previous year.  The 18-inch alloy wheels that were only standard on the Grand Touring model are now also included with the Touring trim package. Mazda’s suite of i-ACTIVESENSE driver assistance safety features has come down significantly this year, now $1,170 as opposed to $1,920 for 2016.

Powerful SKYACTIV Engine Provides Punch

All Mazda CX-3 models come with the SKYACTIV 2.0L engine that uses a higher compression ratio than other motors to deliver a peppy 146 horsepower. A six-speed automatic transmission is also standard on all trim levels, with a Sport mode to deliver a little quicker response when it’s time to challenge those curvy country roads. The Sport trim level is fitted with 16-inch alloy wheels, the MAZDA CONNECT infotainment system that responds to voice commands, keyless entry, power mirrors and locks, air conditioning and an outstanding six-speaker stereo. The Touring model has heated outside mirrors, heated front seats, blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. Choose the top-of-the-line Grand Touring model to get LED headlights and fog lights, navigation and paddle shifters. See the new CX-3 when it comes to Chapman Mazda in a couple of weeks.

The Mazda Connect infotainment system also offers hands free communication, allowing your young driver to make phone calls or answer texts while keeping eyes firmly focused on the road.

Soul of Motion Design a Hit Inside and Out

The Mazda3 is a testament to technology in the modern age.

SKYACTIV Makes Parts Work Together

The SKYACTIV G engine uses higher compression than most vehicles to deliver up to 40 mpg on the highway and 184 horsepower. The chassis is finely-tuned to deliver both agility and stability. Whether you choose the manual or automatic transmission, both deliver seamless shifting as your teen driver moves through the gears.

Driver Assistance Features Keep Teens Safe
