2017 Mazda CX-3 On-Sale Date
The subcompact crossover segment is booming, and Mazda’s recent entry into the segment came last year in the form of the CX-3. It’s been a popular model since, but now that summer is here, it’s time to start looking forward to the 2017 model year to see what changes Mazda might have in-store for this athletic small crossover, including the 2017 Mazda CX-3 on-sale date.
Before we get into some of the details of what’s new for the CX-3 in the 2017 model year, let’s first address when you’ll be able to get behind the wheel. The 2017 Mazda CX-3 will go on sale in early July 2016. Though we don’t have an exact date for its arrival here to Bergen County NJ, you can contact us at Mazda of Lodi to see when you’ll be able to take a test drive.
What’s Changed on the 2017 Mazda CX-3
So, what has actually changed on the 2017 model? Well, not much, and that’s a good thing. The 2016 CX-3 was a popular and highly successful model, and there wasn’t really anything that needed to be upgraded.
That said, Mazda has found a couple ways to make the model even more of a great value for drivers on a budget. The Touring trim, for example, now comes standard with 18-inch alloy wheels. The Grand Touring trim now offers Mazda’s available suite of safety technologies, i-ACTIVSENSE, at a lower MSRP than the year before. Drivers will now find that it comes at an MSRP of $1,170 rather than $1,920.
Despite the changes, drivers will find that the CX-3 still has the same starting MSRP from the 2016 model year, at $19,960. The Touring model has an MSRP of $21,960 and the Grand Touring has an MSRP of $24,990.
The 2017 Mazda CX-3 will come equipped with a 146-horsepower SKYACTIV engine producing up to 146 lb-ft of torque. Standard features include a 7-inch color touchscreen, push-button start, USB port and power mirrors. Mazda’s predictive i-ACTIV AWD is available.
If the couple of changes to the CX-3’s features doesn’t matter much to you, you can still schedule a test drive with the 2016 model here at Mazda of Lodi. Otherwise, if more affordable i-ACTIVSENSE or 18-inch alloy wheels are high up on your list of desired features, then you can wait for the 2017 Mazda CX-3 on-sale date here in Bergen County NJ.
