2017 Mazda 3, Full Review, Crazy Headlights and Road Test

It’s still more than just a pretty face, but is it good enough to hold off a slew of hot new rivals, including hatchback versions of the 2017 Honda Civic and Chevy Cruze? Find out in this fast-paced video review of the refreshed 2017 Mazda 3. The sporty compact sedan and hatchback gets updated styling, a trick new handling upgrade, even some lower prices and elevated safety features. But it suddenly looks underpowered compare with rivals like the Focus ST and Golf GTI. And competition is more brutal than ever for the hatchback body style favored by most Mazda 3 buyers.

Come oooon, you are reviewing a MAZDA out of all things, and you talk about “german driving precision”???
are you serious? mazda makes cars that are famous for their handling and dynamic behaviour like the mx5 or the rx8 or the older rx7…

If by german precision you mean endless understeer though, then sure…

Fizzy Elf says:

Can someone answer me? Is the 2017 Mazda 3 Hatchback engine is good for tune/mod/built? Thanks! 🙂

I test drove Grand Touring 2.5 4 door with manual. It is such a nice vehicle. I had to get used to the clutch. I’ve only ever driven older vehicles with a pretty heavy clutch, I almost stalled it a few times. Shifting is excellent, as we all know. My favorite bit about the manual though is that either because of quality, or electronic control, you don’t get that whiplash effect when you let off or depress the throttle in first or second gear. It is a smooth transition. If you let off in first in our Corolla… actually just don’t. I also think it is the best looking compact hatch this year. I like the Focus a lot too, but I need a break from Ford. I have not had good reliability from several of their vehicles. And the golf would totally be an option if it wasn’t so damn ugly. Sorry, it looks like a grandma car.

Thomas Pinkleton says:

So is it a tasty dish?

Bryceton O'Neal says:

I traded in my Mini cooper for one of these today. Couldn’t be any happier. Lots of bang for the buck.

Hannah Jill Jose says:

great car reviews! video and pictures are awesome! keep it up!

OzNix05 says:

Mazda, not Maaaaazda.

phillip shevchenko says:

Wait until the skyactive 2 comes out on this car!!

Anthony Castillo says:

I have a hatchback mazda 3 2015, my very first car and I find it unique compared to it’s competitors that looks like a regular car design.

MarkDrummer says:

Which is more reliable…2017 Toyota Corolla SE, or Mazda 3 GS?

Mike Robinson says:

you need to include available boot space

thrombocytopenis says:

this or the impreza?

Keyser Soze says:

Dammit, the new 2017 grill is bleh… not as good-looking as 2016’s grill. Such an unnecessary tweak, what a disappointment.

BostonHooligan08 says:

Mazda 3 hatchback or Subaru Crosstek?

Jonathan says:

There is a little description info in your tags

Allen Edwards says:

Say hi to Alf for me!

Jon Benigno says:

No Android Auto feature on Mazda Connect available for foreseeable future – EPIC FAIL !!! esp since the Mazda Navigation no longer has real time traffic updates!!!

Jeff Smeltzer says:

I bought my Mazda 3 Hatchback 5 months ago, no regrets.  Only issue, I’m 6′ and I have to get in careful not to bump my head.  My last ride was a ’04 Jeep wrangler so this new MPG is great.

Manual M3 Manual STI says:

2017 Mazda 3 is beautiful!

DEVILTAZ35 says:

Please tell me in 2018 that Mazda is going to get rid of that butt ugly front grille design?

Ramon(a) Verona says:

But what about those “Crazy Headlights”?

TheValiantZero says:

Too much talking about information, video should have more review than info!

lildavey09 says:

But is it still a tasty dish?

Frank Bjørnsten says:

Ohhh how i wish this was a 1.5 Turbo with 180 BHP. That 2.0 ltr. Engine is really NOT good enough compared to TSI And Ecoboost engines.

zok310 says:

Thinking of ditching my accord after 10 years for this. Owning a Honda beyond the warranty is such a fucking money pit

The Purple Bat says:

I’ve owned 4 MZ3’s a 07i sedan, a 10 Sport hatch, a 16i hatch and now a 17 GT hatch

quernalt says:

I bought one and have had one for 6weeks now, but I have the 150hp diesel as I live in France. So far I am very happy with it.

Sophie Kate says:

I got the 2016 Mazda 3 last year…. and omg it blew me away. This is the car for anyone who want their car to look like a Lexus, shift like a dream, and have more bass than Ultra. It’s a wonderful decently priced and safe car that looks wayyyy more sporty than other cars in its class. I highly recommend upgrading to the base speakers, tinting the windows and adding black rims. Mine is white and I can’t rave about it enough!

Yong Kim says:

I disagree with Chuck about the popularity of 3. The passive reactions to the much changes in competitive dynamics – such as price adjustments and option rearrangements – won’t help 3′ slow sales. Mazda will need dramatic changes in 3’s designs and power delivery to reclaim the King status.

Daniel Huynh says:

BS. Best look in its class. So the German counterparts are not in the same class? Bmw 1, Merc A, Audi 3?

dji zzah says:

it will never be as tough built as a toyota but what brand is? still not bad though

paulyster says:

Not sure how I feel about the electronic switch for parking brakes…

Calico Morgan says:

Anyone else dissapointed by the rear end restyling? Looks terrible compared to the 2008 hatch’s rally look. 2017 over-slanted the real windshield imo. Very disappointed by that 🙁

the_______ accuser!! says:

Alex G says:

Baked says:

I got a car ad on a car video lmao.

Thomas Pinkleton says:

my gf had a mazda and the interior fell apart real quick. Did any of you guys have that issue? I need to know if maybe it was a fluke cause I really like this car.

mieczyslaw grudzien says:

Mazda 3 Honda ciewg besser wie VW Golf

Luis Herrera says:

got a Mazda. 4 days later heck engine light starts blinking. returned that Japanese bucket of bolts immediately and got a Toyota. won’t have any problems for atleast 20 years

Moonface00z says:

never buy the civic. I forking regretted it.

Rojon Ford says:

Man it would only be better if you could slap a turbo on there. Now I have to do it myself. Motor rebuild weekend here I come.
