It’s a shame that the Mazda 6 has quite for some time now been unable to garner any meaningful attention. For starters, the 6 is one of the segment’s best in terms of almost every aspect be it interior appointment, engine efficiency, exterior and interior design, and style, but either of these features seem to have tilted the competition to its advantage.

One of our favorite quality of the 6 is its intricate mix of performance and fuel consumption. Not many vehicles can afford to offer both at the same time without jeopardizing one of them. In combined driving, the 6 can achieve 32 mpg partly due to the available i-Eloop system. And even in its absence, the 6 still manages to get 31 mpg which places it among the best in terms of fuel efficiency in its segment.

And whether you are carving through city traffic or getting up to highway speeds, the 6 offers an impressive acceleration. Throw in a relatively nimble handling, and a precise steering and you get yourself a fun driving experience regardless of whether you are circling highway on a ramp or you are on the occasional back road.

Although the new 2017 Mazda 6 undoubtedly makes driving much fun even for newbie drivers, there are minor faults that we find imperative to highlight. They include a firm ride quality and lack of engine upgrades. Minor they may seem, but for those who can’t live with that, some of its alternatives include the 2017 Honda Accord and Nissan Altima. They are solid choices that offer a comfortable driving experience, and superior fuel consumption.

Others include the 2017 Ford Fusion and the 2017 Kia Optima. Both offer punchy turbocharged engines, creature comforts, and sharp styling. But if you are looking for an “A” rated and entertaining vehicle, we highly recommend you get the 2017 Mazda 6.

For 2017, the 3 gains a sunroof, automatic wipers, automatic headlights, a rearview camera, lots of standard features, and the 3i Sport trim now becomes the standard trim model. If you’re shopping for a hatchback or a compact sedan these days, you expect it to be reliable, fuel-efficient, safe, packed with latest technological tidbits, and offers a spacious interior.

However, within this price range is a plethora of cars that meet the requirements, but very few of them can offer better handling, performance, and engaging driving experience than the Mazda 3. To start with, the Mazda 3 comes with a standard 2.0L engine that delivers an impressive power output and laudable fuel consumption rating.

Of course, the new Mazda 3 2017 still comes with some faulty features including uncomfortable 18” optional wheels, an above-average ride quality, and substantial wind noise. Other great choices to check out include 2016 Ford Focus, 2017 Kia Forte and Honda Civic 2017.

A 2.0L four-cylinder engine rated at 155 hp and 150 pounds of torque powers every 2017 Mazda 3i model. This power output drives the front-wheels through the six-speed manual transmission system or the six-speed automatic transmission system available as an option.

2017 Mazda 3 engine

We recorded an 8.3 seconds from an acceleration of 0-60 mph. Also, the fuel economy ratings are impressive. Expect 30/41/34 mpg in the city/highway/combined with an automatic-equipped sedan. Dropping to 29/41/33 mpg is the manual-equipped sedan.

Opting for the 3s models gets you a 2.5L four-cylinder engine rated at 184 horsepower and 185 pounds of torque. The 3s GT models come with a standard manual transmission system or an optional auto, while the 3s Touring models come with a six-speed auto transmission system. A Mazda 3s hatchback dash to 60 mph from standstill recorded 7.5 seconds.

In both the sedan and hatchback, the 2.5L engine and manual transmission system return fuel economy ratings of 25/37/29 mpg and 26/35mpg for the sedan and hatchback respectively. When mated to a six-speed auto, expect 28/39/32 mpg for the 3s in four-door configuration, and 27/37/31 mpg for the hatchback.

With the available i-Eloop system, expect fuel economy ratings to stand at 29/40/33 mpg for the sedan, and 28/39/32 mpg with the automatic.

Price 2017 Mazda 3 Concept Release Date

An MSRP starting from $17,845 is what the i-Sport model will cost you, while opting for the 2017 Mazda 3s Touring will cost you an MSRP starting from $24,795. As for the release date, buyers should expect the vehicle early next year.
