It all starts under the hood of the 2017 Mazda CX-3, which is the home of a SKYACTIV®-G 2.0L DOHC 4-cylinder engine with VVT. The SKYACTIV® technology was specially designed by Mazda to deliver the most amount of power and efficiency. This is reflected in the engine’s 146 horsepower and 29 mpg-city/34 mpg-highway estimated fuel economy (which is even more efficient than the 2017 Toyota RAV4).

We are all familiar with the snowy winters of the northern East Coast, and driving during the season can cause severe stress and anxiety. Luckily, the 2017 Mazda CX-3 is perfect for wintertime when equipped with optional all-wheel drive! This drivetrain provides the grip needed to handle those slippery roads, so you will have an easier time getting to school, work, or the hospital in an emergency.
