2017 Mazda 3 Expert Rundown Review

Looking for a great sedan that's entertaining, versatile and classy? The 2017 Mazda 3 might be a good match. Here's a quick rundown of what we like, what we don't and the bottom line from the Edmunds editors.

TRAVIS LANGNESS: I'm Travis Langness, Edmunds editor. And this is our Expert Rundown in the 2017 Mazda 3. The Mazda 3 gets a variety of updates this year, new front and rear bumpers. And on the inside, there's an updated dashboard design, more standard equipment, and some bigger door pockets. Mazda's also added G-Vectoring Control to the 3 to improve handling. And re-tuned suspension makes for a smoother ride. Two of the Mazda 3's best features are its precise handling and responsive steering. The ride quality can be choppy with the big 18-inch wheels, but we think it's worth the trade-off. There's also a lot of desirable features available as well as quick acceleration, top crash test scores, and a refined interior. The Mazda 3's excellent interior feels more luxurious than some of its top class rivals. And it's also got intuitive controls to remind us of brands like BMW and Mercedes. Bottom line? The 2017 Mazda 3 is one of our favorite cars on the market. Some other class leaders include the Civic and the Ford Focus. But with the Mazda 3, we really think you can't go wrong. For more reviews of key competitors, go to YouTube and check out more of the Edmunds Expert Rundowns.
