2017 Mazda3

Just a few changes for the new year.

And in true Mazda fashion, they didn't ruin anything. At all.
Which is great, since the Mazda3 is still, in my opinion, the best looking compact hatchback out there.
Inside it now gets the same steering wheel as the CX-9.
Which is just fine.
Otherwise it gets an LED headlights option.
Redesigned center console with electronic handbrake.
The whole thing is also supposed to be bait quieter than before.

But mostly, it is now available with Mazda's all new G-Vectoring Control.
So there....

Mazda CX-4

This is pretty interesting.
Basically a production version of last year's great looking Koeru concept.

It is smaller than the CX-5 for a bit larger and sportier than the CX-3. And, unlike BMW's X4 and X6 series, which end up looking bloated , this looks very nice.

So far, people at Mazda are describing it as something for people who want more than a Mazda3 hatch. But not quite an SUV, like the CX-3 or 5.

I think this might turn out to be a good idea.
Something sportier than the rather blocky CX-5.

Looking at the Koeru concept, the "toning down for production" is pretty obvious.
Windows are taller, the front end isn't as aggressive. (Lights especially)
Everything is a bit softer in the production model.

But so far, Mazda has been showing us great production cars.
This one shouldn't be different...
