2017 Mazda3 Hatchback near Phoenix AZ

If you’re in search of a hatchback that combines the best of the sedan and crossover world, the Mazda3 and Golf models are both viable options for you. If more cargo space is your need, the 2017 Golf and its almost 53 cubic feet might be better, but in most areas that drivers care about the 2017 Mazda3 holds the upper hand. Though its base engine is less powerful than the Golf’s, an available upgrade to its 2.5-liter Inline 4 allows you up to 184 horsepower, all while maintaining the same high fuel economy present on lower trims. Stepping inside, a mix of flawless interior design (accented by leather seating and a leather-wrapped steering wheel) and seamless entertainment integration (courtesy of the Mazda Connect infotainment system) makes the 2017 Mazda3 Hatchback truly an experience like no other hatches on the road. As you drive, you can rest assured that the Mazda3 and its available driver assistance features have you covered no matter what the road has in store. Some of these include:

  • High Beam Control
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Lane Departure Warning System
  • Lane-Keep Assist
  • Adaptive Front-Lighting System
  • Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring
  • Many more!
