2018 Zoom-Zoom: Meet This Year’s Exciting Mazda Lineup


A post shared by MazdaUSA (@mazdausa) on

Although there’s two months left of 2017, next year’s models are already debuting at Alden Mazda. But that means something different when you shop for a Mazda3 or Mazda CX-5. Our preferred automaker is always pushing the boundaries of what their cars and crossovers can do, and normally results in a better driving experience. Read on to find out more about the exciting new features available on our 2018 Mazda lineup!

2018 Mazda3
In either hatchback or sedan guise, the 2018 Mazda3 will continue to offer style beyond price, an agile, engaging, and comfortable ride, and excellent styling. But Mazda has made some tweaks to the available equipment roster. On the base “Sport” model, Smart City Brake Support is now standard. Previously, you had to opt for the top trim to get the potent 2.5-liter inline-four engine (184 horsepower), but it can now be had on mid-level Touring models.

2017.5 Mazda6
According to the rumor mill, we can expect an all-new Mazda6 to debut soon, which means it may be your last chance to drive the exciting current model. While technically not a 2018, that hasn’t stopped Mazda from making once optional features standard. The base Sport makes blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert standard, and Touring models now have navigation, and heated seats. Best part? The prices are the same as last year.

2018 Mazda CX-3
Now in its third model year, it’s pretty clear the Mazda CX-3 has made its mark as one of the best-driving subcompact crossovers out there, and Mazda engineers haven’t been resting on their laurels. Like the Mazda3, the CX-3 gets standard Smart City Brake Support, while the options sheet grows to include a heated steering wheel, power driver’s seat with memory settings, and a full-color Active Driving Display. There was also some work done to the suspension, furthering the CX-3’s sporting ride and comfort, while also making it quieter.

2018 Mazda CX-5
Mazda’s most popular model was all-new for 2017, which means the 2018 CX-5 won’t see many drastic changes—save one. For the first time ever, a diesel engine will be offered on the U.S.-spec CX-5. Called a “crossover worth waiting for” by Car and Driver, it will be based off a 173-hp, 310 lb-ft torque version currently available in Europe. More power, and potentially class-leading gas mileage is the running hope! Stay tuned to our blog for more information.
