The 2017 Mazda3 countdown clock is ticking
At Hendy and Lifestyle Mazda, we're pleased to announce the upcoming arrival of the 2017 Mazda3, which features subtle exterior alterations and an updated interior in both hatchback and Fastback variations.
From 1st October, the new Mazda3 will be available to order - and at Hendy, we can't wait for it to arrive. It's sharper, smarter and more sophisticated than ever before, with styling enhancements, new technology and a revised cabin. Saving the best until last, it also features the debut of G-Vectoring Control, which offers more precise handling and improved comfort.
Tailor your Mazda3 to your taste with a choice of eight bodywork colours and four specification levels, plus four engine options. Choose from a 105PS, 1.5-litre or 150PS, 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D diesel, or a 2.0-litre SKYACTIV-G petrol with either 120PS or 165PS outputs. The diesel variants both feature Transient Control, which provides a great throttle response with reduced turbo lag and boosted torque for a petrol-like feel.
Paul Murrells, New Car Sales Director at Hendy, said: 'We are incredibly excited for the arrival of the new Mazda3. Its current incarnation is highly acclaimed so it's a tough act to follow, but we're sure the 2017 model will exceed all expectations; its award-winning range of engines and broad array of enhancements have been designed to keep it at the forefront of this competitive class.'
Enjoy a full-colour display on the enhanced head-up display system and relax in the comfortable cabin, thanks to enhanced suspension, improved ride comfort and reduced vibration, plus the introduction of Mazda's Natural Sound Smoother (NSS) technology that makes diesel engines that bit quieter.
The cabin has evolved too, with an array of updates including higher-quality panels, bezels and trim, and an electric parking brake, which allows for a more practical centre console. Opt for the new leather steering wheel design for an added luxurious edge, which can also be heated if leather seats are selected too.
The current generation Mazda3 was launched in the UK in 2014 and by the end of April 2016, five million cars had been sold. What does the future hold for this latest incarnation? Will its success reflect its high levels of quality and refinement?
We'll let you decide. Order your 2017 Mazda3 at Hendy Mazda in Eastleigh and Winchester or Lifestyle Mazda in Crawley, Eastbourne and Horsham from 1st October.
