2017 Mazda3 Takes Kelley Blue Book’s Top Spot in its 10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000 Awards

It may be the fourth year that the Mazda compact sedan and hatchback has earned the honor, but Mazda3 has appeared on KBB.com’s annual list in some form every year for the last 14 years. So what's to love under the hood for the auto research and valuation authority?

Whether in Sport or Touring trims, the hatchback Touring 2.5, or the long-hauler Grand Touring, there are two simple criteria that took 2017 Mazda3 to the top of Kelley Blue Book’s list: it's exciting to drive and a joy to own. To quote KBB.com executive editorial director and executive market analyst Jack R. Nerad, Mazda3 is among the "best-looking and most fun-to-drive vehicles in the segment" and "one of the coolest cars of all time." As accolades go, this is a big one.

The experts loved the standard GVC, or G-Vectoring Control, a Mazda industry exclusive tech curio that delivers accurate, precise control with feedback from nuanced steering inputs, making for a drive-time a world apart from the rest. Plus, in Mazda3, you'll find an "interior above its class," beset on all design sides by an attention-commanding premium design, but it's advanced safety features of distinction like Mazda i-ACTIVSENSE, Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring and Smart City Brake Support that put on the finishing touches. They even earned 2017 Mazda3 a TOP SAFETY PICK+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
