2016 Mazda3 for Sale near Sacramento, CA
The Mazda3 Uses All of Car-Buyer's Favorite Words: Standard and Economical.
“Standard” is every car-buyer’s favorite word. “Economical” comes in at a close second. The 2016 Mazda3 for sale near Sacramento, CA, has both words – it offers more standard features for a lower, more economically-friendly price. We may be in love.
There’s something so gratifying about getting a good deal. The Mazda3 makes it easy to get that gratified feeling with its list of standard features, which have increased from the 2015 model. The base 3i Sport, which is only available in the sedan body style, comes with 16-inch steel wheels, power-folding mirrors, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, cruise control, Bluetooth®1 phone and audio connectivity with voice controls, a 7-inch touchscreen display with a knob-based controller, and a 6-speaker audio system with a USB port, an auxiliary input, HD radio, and smartphone-enabled internet radio. To top it all off, the MSRP has decreased $600 dollars since 2015, unlike many other brands who jack up the prices as the years go on.
The 2016 Mazda3 for sale near Sacramento, CA, is available in two different body styles, as a sedan or as a hatchback, and with two different engines. The standard is a 2.0-liter I4 that produces 155 horsepower and 150 lbs.-ft. of torque. The fuel economy is top-knotch on the Mazda3, too, coming in at 30/41 city/hwy MPG2 on the sedan automatic and 30/40 city/hwy MPG2 on the hatchback automatic. The bigger engine, a 2.5-liter I4 that gets 184 horsepower, and 185 lbs.-ft. of torque, actually comes very close to the same fuel economy. It’s capable of doing a great 29/40 city/hwy MPG2 on the sedan automatic with i-ELOOP. The hatchback clocks in only 1 MPG less, at 28/39 MPG2 on an automatic with i-ELOOP.
i-ELOOP is included in the Technology package and is a pretty significant feature. It’s a brake energy regeneration system – meaning it continuously recovers kinetic energy as the vehicle decelerates and reuses it as electricity. It reduces the need for extra fuel to be burnt for generating electricity, improving fuel economy. It’s sort of hard to wrap your mind around, but just focus on the word “reuse”, which is always a good thing.
So, it has a ton of standard features, great gas mileage, and it’s an environmentalist – without disregarding the main purpose of a vehicle like the Mazda3: the ride. It’s smooth and powerful and you don’t have to feel guilty about going with the larger engine to take those turns even a little faster because the fuel economy differences are practically negligible.
All of this adds up to definitely taking a trip to Mazda of Elk Grove to take a look at the 2016 Mazda3 for sale near Sacramento, CA. Schedule a test drive today!
