Review: 2017 Mazda3 Sport GT – Part 5

So I’ve come to the end of the review of the Mazda3 Sport GT. First, let me tie up some loose ends. At the end of my week with it, I registered an impressive 7.2 L/100KM in mixed city and highway driving, a lot of which was in rush hour and stop and go traffic. But it also included an overnight trip to Algonquin Park. Clearly Mazda’s SkyActiv technology works to save you gas. But you still get a car that is excellent on the highway and handles even better than previous iterations thanks to G-Vectoring Control.

The Mazda3 Sport starts at $24,695 and as tested goes for $27,900. Speaking of which, you’ll want to cross shop it with the Ford Focus, the VW Golf, the Toyota Corolla IM, the Chevy Cruze Hatchback, and Hyundai Elantra GT to name a few contenders in a crowded field. 

Here’s why you need to consider the Mazda3. You’re getting a hatchback that is sporty, frugal on gas, roomy, loaded with technology, and very luxurious in the GT trim level. All at a price that won’t break the bank. If you’re in the market for a compact hatchback, the Mazda3 Sport has to be on your list.
