Most recently I’ve had my eye on the Mazda3. It seems everywhere I drive I see one of them zooming by me. I love the sleek design and color options for one, and when I took a peek inside I truly enjoyed the beige leather seats and large LED screen this baby has to offer.
The 2018 Mazda3 Grand Touring is truly a beauty both inside and out. It boasts a 2.5L DOHC 4-cylinder engine with 184 horsepower at 5700 rpm. Any car enthusiasts would know that this means it’s packed with power.
I have always loved the style that sports cars offer, however I do not love the fact that most of them suck fuel, which means more fill ups and more cash being drained from your pocket. This Mazda3 has the clean sports car look without breaking the bank, now or later. It has a fuel economy of 36 mph based on automatic highway transmission and 27 for city strolls.
To keep your bank account happy, the 2018 Mazda3 Sports start at $18,095 with the Grand Touring style running you at around $24,195. Both of these prices are fantastic for a new 2018 off the lot model with this type of engine and features.
One of my favorite things about Mazda’s are the features they have to offer. It seems every time I drive one of these around for a week I find myself wishing that I had one for my own. Their safety features are off the hook with everything from side-impact door beams to advanced blind spot monitoring. If you are one of those drivers that often carry your children and loved ones this car is packed with features to keep you and your family feel as safe as possible.
Additional features include my favorite, the Mazda driving display, which helps drivers see their speed and navigation without having to move their head from the forward-facing direction. This small display shows the speed, turn-by-turn directions, distance and lane guidance, and even warnings.
The driving display is connected via the Mazda Connect system which is displayed on the large 7 inch full-color touch screen display. It features all your favorite apps, such as Pandora, Stitcher and SiriusXM. It also allows drivers to connect with family and friends using the hands-free phone and audio streaming with steering wheel-mounted audio controls for easy access.
This large 4-door sedan is a great addition to the Mazda family and offers lots of space inside the main car and trunk. With keyless entry, a large moonroof and a variety of different color options, this 2018 Mazda3 Grand Touring is a great choice for all drivers.
