Inside Mazda

What's New for 2017

From being named a finalist for World Car of the Year, to landing on Car and Driver’s 10Best list every year it’s been eligible, to numerous awards for the quality and sophistication of its interior, the current-generation Mazda3 has become a standard by which compact cars are judged. Mazda3 is completely repackaged for 2017, providing a stronger value at all price points while adding refinement, elevating design and increasing usable performance.

  • Revised front design, emphasizing visual width and stability; rear bumper revised on five-door models
  • An upgraded interior with enhanced storage space, enhanced materials, increased sound suppression and redesigned look and feel
  • Mazda’s all-new G-Vectoring Control (GVC) technology, standard across all trim levels

The 2017 Mazda6 is a vehicle that further proves that a midsize family sedan is capable of going above and beyond in delivering an engaging driving experience that still maintains practicality and efficiency. For 2017, the sedan gains further premium refinements that are sure to keep it as one of the best-handling, most-engaging vehicles in its segment.

  • Mazda’s all-new G-Vectoring Control (GVC) technology, standard across all trim levels
  • Improved sound insulation and absorption performance for a quieter ride
  • Newly added technology including Traffic Sign Recognition, a full-color Active Driving Display and rear USB charging ports

Miata. Roadster. MX-5. Whatever you might want to call it, we call it timeless. The 2017 MX-5 continues to be the torchbearer for those who enjoy the journey as much as the destination—especially if there are some curves between Point A and Point B. Perhaps a greater accomplishment than the World Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year awards it won in 2016—and becoming the only vehicle ever to win both in the same year—MX-5’s popularity is proof that, amid ever-increasing automation, there’s little that will ever be as satisfying as a perfect heel-toe downshift or a Sunday morning with empty backroads and miles ahead to enjoy.

  • All MX-5 Club models receive standard Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • The introduction of MX-5 RF Retractable Fastback features a power folding hardtop that can open or close in just 13 seconds
  • The MX-5 RF Launch Edition, a 1,000-unit trim level exclusively for the U.S., equipped with Auburn Nappa Leather interior, hand-painted black top and Machine Gray Metallic exterior paint

The smallest iteration of Mazda’s SKYACTIV-generation lineup might just be one of its mightiest, as the 2017 CX-3 returns for its second model year a proven companion for whatever the road may throw its way – from urban sprawl to the wilds of winter or the Great Outdoors.

  • The mid-level CX-3 Touring adopts 18-inch wheels, trickling down from the Grand Touring trim level
  • Grand Touring i-ACTIVSENSE package of safety features costs less than the outgoing model and comes available with Mazda Radar Cruise Control, automatic Smart City Brake Support and Smart Brake Support, Lane Departure Warning, High Beam Control, automatic on/off headlights and rain-sensing wipers

  • The SKYACTIV-D 2.2 clean diesel engine will be available in the 2017 CX-5 for North America from the second half of 2017
