Overall:

Overall this car is great! It runs great, has lots of safety features, and looks beautiful inside and out. My favorite features are the dual air condition controls, the sunroof & the Bose speakers. The only thing I would say this car is missing is heated seats.

Overall:

I drove the 2.0 litre model, which felt slow at the start up but was very efficient. Visibility isnt that great, but compared to other compact cars with their overly sporty styling it wasnt that bad. It was hard to see out the rear window, so the backup camera was a necessity. Controls for the cars interactive system/radio are located between the seats, which was unfamiliar to me but didnt take too long to get used to. I was also surprised at how quiet the engine was, especially on startup. Make no mistake, this is still a budget car. Interior room is somewhat lacking, and the cabin doesnt have many attractive touches to it. But if youre looking for a first car or dont have the extra money to spend on a larger model, this is actually a pretty good choice.

2017 Mazda MAZDA3 Touring 2.5 Hatchback Review
Guru9S3QC says:
Very nice car to drive. It was my second choice overall. Better handling and steering feel than Civic 1.5T. Engine is good but not as refined as Civic 1.5T (has both better acceleration and fuel economy). Cons: Does not have Android Auto / Car Play. Active safety only in highest trim. Back seat is smaller than competitors. Fuel economy is okay, but not great. Would not hesitate to recommend if the cons dont bother you.

2017 Mazda MAZDA3 Grand Touring Hatchback Review
NKSIII says:
Although the Grand Touring has many of the same features as the Premium, they appeared dated or are less integrated than the 2019. As a example, the Grand Touring has a heads-up display, but it is projected on a clear plastic panel on the dashboard rather than the windshield.
