The 2018 Mazda3: Balancing Performance and Fuel Efficiency for Okanagan, BC Drivers

(Posted on Nov 24, 2020 at 02:00PM by Josh Lew)
used mazda3 okanagan bcThe Mazda3 is a compact car that manages to balance fuel efficiency with spirited performance and nimble handling. The 2018 version comes as a sedan or four-door hatchback. 

The 2018 Mazda3 Sport GT is a prime example of a fun and practical vehicle. This trim has a six-speed manual transmission and a 2.5L I-4 engine that provides 184 horsepower and 185 lb.-ft of torque.

On the practical side, the Mazda3 gets 9.4 L/100 km in the city and up to 6.9 L/100 km on the highway. At the same time, Sport GT has excellent handling, which, when combined with the engine and manual shifting, makes it one of the most delightful-to-drive vehicles in the compact class.

Depending on the trim package, the Mazda3 boasts lots of extras. Sport GT owners can enjoy a sunroof, heated seats, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. You can also get safety features, such as blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-path alert, and automatic forward-collision-avoidance braking.

If you are seeking a compact car that offers fuel economy and is fun to drive, contact our Okanagan, BC dealership to inquire about the availability of the Mazda3. 

We inspect and repair our used vehicles so that they meet Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) standards. You can, therefore, be confident that our used Mazda3s will perform as advertised.
