What's to Love for Greater Bostonians in the 2017 Mazda CX-3?

If you're from here in Norwood, MA or stopping by from Boston, you're familiar with the Bay State's weather gamut from rainy summers to frigid winters, all thanks to what blows in off the North Atlantic among other places.

But you've also had your run-ins with the human and vehicular traffic congesting Boston's many boroughs and surrounding locales, and when it comes to getting through it all, you can't always hoof it in America's Walking City, especially when there's plenty to do. That's where the 2017 Mazda CX-3 subcompact crossover SUV comes in. Take a look under the hood and throughout the road warrior's capable cabin, and you'll see what we mean.

A Boston Cruiser or Long-Haul Traveler Out of Norwood

2017 Mazda CX-3 appears in three trims -- the athletic Sport, or Touring and Grand Touring trims. The former's designed for performance with power and handling fun in mind, ideal for angling Boston streets with eyes on that upcoming cultural event of natural-beauty venue. The latter offer builds ideal for long-distance cruising, whether you're headed over to Jamaica Plain, down to Quincy, further to Wellesley, or all the way out to Natick or Franklin. Count on such features to conquer your drive-time as:

  • A SKYACTIV®-G 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder DOHC engine with VVT. 146 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque deliver an energetic feel more than up to the travel task.
  • SKYACTIV®-DRIVE six-speed automatic transmission. You'll find its gear shifts smooth and responsive for the needs of a major metro area, and both manual-shift and Sport mode options put a fun bit of push behind your commute.
  • Competitive fuel economy, whether in front-wheel or all-wheel drive. The former boasts up to an estimated 29 mpg around Boston, 34 mpg on the highways and byways, and a respectable 31 combined mpg for the eclectic traveler. AWD remains appreciably comparable, at 27 mpg in the city, 32 mpg on the highway, and 29 mpg combined.
  • Body construction with SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY. From frame to engine and chassis to transmission, 2017 Mazda CX-3 comes built to deliver apex driving dynamics while conserving fuel. That means less time spent looking for a Boston pump and more time commanding the road.
  • Available smart predictive i-ACTIV AWD® all-wheel drive. When Mother Nature's fury shells out that expected nor'easter, you can rely on Mazda CX-3 to cut through the thick of it, with sensors to monitor conditions and active torque redistribution to deliver traction where and when you need it.
  • An available Active Driving Display. Around Beantown, it goes without saying that you'll need eyes on the road. Mazda CX-3 projects driving information relevant to your trek directly in front of you, making it a snap to manage your travels with hands near ten and two and your view on the adventure ahead.
  • Mazda's available i-ACTIVSENSE safety suite. Tech like available adaptive front lighting and high beam control makes it easy to pierce that cold fog bank off the Atlantic, while rear cross-traffic alert, a lane-departure warning system, advanced blind spot monitoring, and a Distance Recognition Support System provide added situational awareness to your Massachusetts road trip. Mazda even has you covered back in town with help from available Smart City Brake Support for controlled halts on congested social thoroughfares.

2017 Mazda CX-3 even earns a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the IIHS when properly equipped. That's peace of mind, no matter where the open road may take you. It's all ensconced in the comfort of a driver-centric cabin, showcasing such personal elements as pedals placed symmetrically to align with your center line and a MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system with center-console multi-function Commander. Navigating the host of Mazda CX-3 functions via its sprawling full-color touchscreen has never been easier.

All that remains is your Boston vacation details. Our 920 Providence Highway dealer location is home to models across the lines of both 2017 CX-3 and the entire Mazda lineup. Visit us here at our Norwood, MA Mazda showroom today, and we'll introduce you to all the Mazda CX-3 has to offer!
