2017 Mazda 3 GT: Sounds Like A Pain

By  | 

Sub-premium compact sedans may be a bit noisy when driving but the 2017 Mazda 3 GT really is a pain in the winter months, and we say this literally, thanks to the Bridgestone Blizzak Winter Tires, which boost the noise in the cabin.

There are not many vehicles that can match the Mazda 3 GT engines performance and its combined fuel efficiency. The vehicle is great looking too and it has been said to be a driver’s car. While it does offer dynamic driving, in the world of today this really isn’t enough. Car owners of today want it all and in the compact sedan market there are lots of competitors to the GT.

The Mazda 3 GT is let down by the non-adjustable heads-up display, no lumbar support and the mini-dash top monitor. The Grand Touring comes with a price tag of around $27,930, the base sport comes in at $18,895 to $24, 195.

The overall package however is good, apart from the road noise level in the cabin of the Mazda 3 GT, which is very high. Snow, wind and rain all make it painfully noisy at times and increased driving speed only worsens the issue.

So if you are going for the Mazda 3 GT be sure to buy yourself a good quality pair of earplugs if you are going to be driving around in wind, rain and snow.
