great deals on used sedans seattle washington areaIf you want a compact-car that turns your humdrum drive to work into an exciting thrill ride, consider a used 2017 Mazda MAZDA3.

The energetic 2.0-liter four-cylinder delivers a lively 155 hp and 150 lb-ft of torque, along with an enviable EPA rating of 28 mpg city/37 hwy. And, believe us, you’re going to want to take advantage of that great fuel-economy for more than just running errands.

According to Car and Driver, there are a few important numbers which catapult the MAZDA3 to the top of the compact-car class. For starters, an exceptional chassis and 18-inch wheels enable this vehicle to achieve an impressive 0.87 g of skidpad grip. This makes for some fun times when you’re tackling windy roads. And, if you’ve got a need for speed, put the pedal to the metal and you’ll reach 60 mph in a respectable 7.9 seconds. Finally, while it loves to go zoom, this sedan is also quick to slow down and can come to a complete stop from 70 mph in just 171 feet.

In addition to all of these characteristics that make the 2017 model so fun to drive, you also get Mazda’s G-Vectoring Control. Whenever you hit a particularly sharp corner, this electronic system will inconspicuously lower the engine torque, which allows for sharper steering response.
