Practical Driving Pleasure – 2018 Mazda3 in Kitchener, ON

Go ahead, test drive the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Chevy Cruze, and Hyundai Elantra. You’ll find out very quickly why Mazda3 drivers have more fun behind the wheel.

2018 Mazda3 Engines & Fuel Economy
Mazda’s SKYACTIV program is a big deal, that’s why it’s in all-caps! Using a combination of direct injection, lightened internals, higher compression, reduced friction, and less weight have made SKYACTIV engines 30% more fuel efficient than a comparably sized inline-four. Specifically, the 2.0L DOHC makes 155 horsepower and returns 5.7 L/100km on the highway (standard on GX and GS models), while the 2.5L DOHC in the top level GT generates 184 horsepower and 5.9 L/100km on the highway. And no matter which powerplant you select, you have the choice between a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission. Plus, new for 2018 is Mazda’s G-Vectoring Control which alters engine torque for sharper turn-in response and more natural handling. The result is a compact car that’ll have you taking the long way home!
2018 Mazda3 Interior Features
The Mazda3 was already considered to have one of the best interiors in its class, but that didn’t stop Mazda’s engineers from subtly reworking it to make it even better! Improved trim materials will make you wonder how on earth Mazda can offer such a beautiful interior for so little money, while clever updates like a full-colour heads-up-display and reduced road noise make the Mazda3 feel even more premium than before. Plus, new features like an available heated steering wheel in combination with standard features like Bluetooth connectivity, MAZDA CONNECT infotainment system with HMI Commander control and USB ports all make the 2018 Mazda3 feel a class above its rivals.
2018 Mazda3 Safety Technology
Your 2018 Mazda3 will always have your back thanks to a long list of active safety features. Blind Spot Monitoring keeps track of vehicles behind you with an unobtrusive, but easy-to-read light on your sideview mirrors; Adaptive Front Lightning System increases your nighttime visibility by angling the headlights up to 15-degrees so you can see around dark corners as you turn the wheel; Adapative Cruise Control automatically adjusts your speed depending on the vehicle in front of you; Lane-Keep Assist System prevents you from straying out of your lane; and Smart City Brake Support can automatically brake your car should it detect an imminent collision!
