2017 Hyundai Elantra - Fuccillo Imports - Watertown, NY
 
The Hyundai Elantra Sedan has been redesigned for 2017 with a long list of new standard and optional features.  You’ll find new interior and exterior touches and an overhauled power train.
 
You’ll see the newly designed 2017 Hyundai Elantra retains its compact sedan identity both sizewise and in price. But it has matured with its handsome interior and state of the art technology, a comfortable driving experience and power that you'd customarily expect from a larger car. The cabin has a high-end feel to it with a wide instrument panel design which creates a more spacious feeling, and the seats are improved for comfort. The infotainment system is user friendly, responds quickly and coupling it with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is a snap; the main multimedia screen is tilted toward the driver for easier viewing and interaction.
 
There are two optional touch-screen multimedia systems available over the base system: a 7-inch with a backup camera and an 8-inch with navigation. All models come with standard inputs for iPhone/USB as well as satellite radio and Android Auto, plus a second USB input for charging.
 
The latest Hyundai Elantra is offered in three trim levels: base-level SE, fuel-efficient Eco and upscale Limited.
 
From the base trim on up, the Elantra vehicles are well-equipped and the more upscale versions are definitely luxurious. That mature, handsome interior tells the world you want to be taken more seriously, the well-designed exterior makes for a more classic appearance. And every Elantra comes standard with Hyundai's industry leading warranty: 5 years or 60,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage and 10 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain protection.
 
The Elantra really shines when it comes to safety equipment. Standard on all models are anti-lock brakes, side-curtain airbags and traction control with stability control, while a backup camera, a rear cross-traffic alert system and a blind spot monitor are optional on the SE and standard on others. The Elantra Limited with the Ultimate package also includes forward-collision warning with automatic braking, adaptive cruise control, adaptive xenon headlights and lane-keep assist.
 
On the outside, aerodynamics are a definitely a major part of the redesign and include functional front air curtains to manage airflow around the front of the vehicle, minimizing resistance. Underneath are underbody covers and in the rear there's a bottom spoiler and rear deck lid designed to be aero-friendly and contribute to lower drag.
 
Structural reinforcements to the front chassis will improve performance in a collision, plus seven airbags are standard and include a driver's knee airbag. The 2017 Hyundai Elantra is one inch wider and just about an inch longer than previous years. It also features LED turn signal indicators, LED taillights and LED puddle lights. Five new colors become available for 2017.

2017 Mazda CX-3 - Fuccillo Imports - Watertown, NY
 
 
You will be impressed with every aspect of the Mazda CX-3. From the gorgeous design, body construction and engine technology to its chassis and transmission, the CX-3 embodies the KODO “Soul of Motion” philosophy:
 
Energy in motion. Power in motion. It’s the inspiration behind the design of every Mazda vehicle. Created to transform ordinary sheet metal into something that embodies the vitality of a living being, KODO exudes the power and elegance of a wild animal in the instant before it pounces on its prey.
 
Mazda was an innovator in the use of ultra-high, light weight tensile-strength steel in its production vehicles. Mazda’s unique engineering approach is called SKYACTIV technology. The CX-3 incorporates this state of the art steel in critical areas to help make it lighter than normal, yet stiffer and stronger.
 
The 2017 Mazda CX-3 is a study in nicely balanced design packaging, rich body contours, deep colors on the paint finish and lines that express energy and movement even when parked.
 
As soon as you enter a Mazda CX-3, you’re elevated into a new level of driver-centricity where everything in the cabin is designed for comfort and your ability to see the world around you. Pedals are designed to make controlling them enjoyable and effortless, aligned to the driver’s center; color schemes and fabrics are combined in surprisingly clever ways to inspire a sense of sporty refinement. 
 
The dash features innovative analog dials and a full-color display screen. You’ll be impressed by the sleek Commander control knob that allows you to rotate, press, and toggle easily to the feature you want, even while on the move. It also includes customizable shortcut buttons and a back button for a simple, frustration-free experience.
 
The SKYACTIV technology works to minimize fuel consumption with impressive fuel econony on the highway.  Under the hood, the CX-3 is powered by a 2.0-liter Skyactiv 4-cylinder engine that produces 146 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque. The powerful transmission is a new kind of precise, high-performance 6-speed automatic transmission that combines the direct feel of a manual transmission with the refined evenness of an automatic.
 
The superlative Mazda CX-3 driving experience should, of course, include a superior sound system. You can get your vehicle equipped with the best Bose Surround Sound System on the market. Enjoy surround sound delivered through seven speakers from several sources, including CDs, MP3 devices, mobile phones, regular radio and available SiriusXM Satellite.
 
The CX-3 is offered in three trim levels: Sport, Touring and Grand Touring.
 
The CX-3 Sport includes 16-in steel wheels with covers, power operation for the mirrors, windows and door locks, auto-off headlights, a rear wiper/washer, air conditioning, a 6-speaker audio with a 7-in touchscreen display and Mazda Connect infotainment, Bluetooth, USB and auxiliary input jacks, keyless entry, push-button start, cruise control, a tilt-telescopic steering column, exterior temperature display and a rear backup camera.
 
The CX-3 Touring adds 18-in alloy wheels, heated side mirrors, leatherette and cloth seating, Advanced Key keyless entry, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, a blind spot monitoring system and rear cross-traffic alert.
 
The CX-3 Grand Touring adds 18-in alloy wheels, a power moonroof, auto-leveling LED headlights, LED fog lights, leather seating with Lux suede inserts, automatic climate control, voice-activated navigation, a head-up display, a 7-speaker Bose Surround Sound audio system, steering-wheel paddle shifters and adaptive front headlights.
 
The Bose audio and power moonroof are available options on the Touring trim that adds the premium i-ACTIVSENSE package: adaptive cruise control, Smart City Brake Support with collision warning and prevention, lane-departure warning, automatic high beams, auto on/off headlights and rain-sensing wipers.

2017 Hyundai Sonata - Fuccillo Imports - Watertown, NY

 
 
The 2017 Hyundai Sonata remains mostly unchanged for this year, though there are some slight modifications to some standard and optional features. The Sonata continues to drive with confidence, smooth quality and precision whether in city driving or out on the highway.
 
You'll find when you test drive a 2017 Hyundai Sonata that this is one of the most hushed drives going, it is truly striking to find this amazing quality in this vehicle price range. As well as having that tranquil silence, the Sonata tamps down rough road glitches with an extraordinarily well-controlled suspension across all the trim levels.
 
The 2017 Hyundai Sonata is a comfortable, handsome vehicle offering all the latest key safety features, including an automatic braking system that has brought it into the league of highest safety ratings. The front-wheel-drive five-seat trim returns with three available gas-only engines and two gas-electric hybrids.
 
Up front the well-laid out controls are very user-friendly for both entertainment and navigation; the Sonata's technology features are impressive, from available driver safety features like blind-spot monitoring and automatic emergency braking to large, clear, highly visible touchscreen displays.
 
If you’re getting ready for snowy weather, the Sonata is a stellar performer here as well thanks to its front-wheel drive. Traction is improved by locating the weight of the engine and transmission over the tires. Tires on every Sonata come with all-season tread, far superior to summer-only tread comonly equpped on competitors. The best snow handling goes to the Base and SE 2.4L models, the Eco, and the Base Hybrids and Plug-in Hybrid; the 2.0T models have the widest tires in the line.
 
New for 2017 is an entry-level Base model. The Eco model and the performance inspired Sport 2.0T and Limited 2.0T editions are turbocharged. Both hybrid versions come in Base and upscale trim. In the gas-only line, the SE is a strong value coming with alloy wheels, rearview camera, and an easy-to-use telematics system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.
 
The cabin on all Sonatas is cavernous and comfortable, everything you would expect from a midsize family sedan. There’s loads of room in the backseat worthy of long road trips, adult sized and extremely comfortable. We notice a lot of crossover SUVs have become the new family vehicle, but don’t eliminate the beautiful and economical 2017 Hyundai Sonata midsize sedan from your shopping list.
 
You get plenty of features for your money with any of the available trims. With the base model, you're in no way going to feel as if you're lacking for anything, and looking at the top trim, the Limited 2.0T, the available luxury features are at levels expected from vehicles costing thousands more.

2017 Subaru Legacy - Fuccillo Imports - Watertown, NY

 
Subaru Legacy Highlights Safety
 
Beyond its all-weather distinction, the 2017 Subaru Legacy stands out with a package of high-tech safety features including Reverse Automatic Braking which is added to the EyeSight Driver Assist Technology package. Inside, you’ll find improved interior materials, softer touch points and all the most up to the minute technology! On the outside, the styling is exceptional and offers unparalleled outward visibility, enhancing driver safety.
 
Subaru Legacy has earned top ratings for overall safety performance for years and has been the go-to vehicle for those living in snowy climates. The Legacy owes its excellent all-weather capability to its standard all-wheel-drive system, a trait that keeps Subaru a truly stand out option.
 
With that excellent outward visibility, the Subaru Legacy provides worst case scenario safety features that are widely available throughout the Legacy lineup such as: stability and traction control standard, antilock disc brakes, a rearview camera, front side airbags, side curtain airbags and seat cushion airbags that help keep occupants in place in a frontal collision, blind-spot warning system and rear cross- traffic alert among others. The Legacy has among the top crash test scores for this segment and the most deserved reputation for safety.
 
The Legacy earned a top five-star rating for overall safety performance, with five stars in the frontal- and side-impact categories. In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety testing, the Legacy received a top score of "Good" in moderate-overlap frontal-offset, small-overlap frontal offset, side-impact and roof-strength testing. The Legacy's seat/head restraint design was rated "Good" for whiplash protection in rear impacts. And in brake testing, a Legacy 2.5i Premium stopped from 60 mph in a short 114 feet, a better-than-average performance for this segment.
 
The fabulous technology panel offers extraordinary graphics with large icons for improved visibility along with easy to use smartphone-like operation. Bluetooth phone and audio, the 7-inch "Subaru Starlink" touchscreen interface, a variety of entertainment and information smartphone integration apps, a four-speaker sound system with a USB port, an auxiliary audio jack, a CD player, HD and satellite radios, and an iPod interface are all offered.
 
Standard equipment on the 2.5i includes 17-inch steel wheels, all-wheel drive, automatic headlights, air-conditioning, a rearview camera, cloth upholstery, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a 60/40 split- folding back seat

Up front, there is plenty of headroom, the supportive seats offer firm lumbar support and a noticeably higher driving position. The Legacy’s upgraded suspension provides a more comfortable ride than any others in the class. Around turns, the Legacy is precise, smooth and easy to drive with an undercurrent of sportiness. The Legacy’s fuel economy compares favorably to the segment’s best.

 Mazda CX-3

When Mazda Motor Corporation revealed the all-new Mazda CX-3, the subcompact crossover SUV was the fifth model in Mazda's line-up of new-generation vehicles that featured the full range of SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY and KODO-Soul of Motion design. The CX-3 was set to become a core model in the automaker's line-up.

What exactly is KODO Soul of Motion?

In Japan, it’s felt that craftspeople inject life into the objects they make. The more love and caring that is directed into these objects, the more of a vital force they present; literally a soul. The philosophy brought to Kodo design by Ikuo Maeda goes beyond the automobile and extends to brand design, creating cars that embody the dynamic beauty of life.  Cars that suggest this soulful energy visually. Maeda is quoted as saying, “As we are a Japanese car company, we believe that a form sincerely and painstakingly made by human hands receives a soul. For everyone connected to Mazda, a car is not a means of getting from A to B, but actually a partner you can rely on and that inspires you. That’s why we want Mazda to express the beauty of instantaneous motion seen in living creatures. That’s what KODO Design stands for.”

Furthermore, he believes that a car capable of expressing life beyond its form and shape can stimulate creativity and the imagination of those who look at the car:

“One thing I’ve persistently told everyone involved with the Design Division over the past few years is to have a brand-led design perspective. Thanks to our new direction, the job of a designer is no longer focused on maximizing the appeal of every car model, but to make sure that when our cars are lined up together, the line-up fascinates customers. It doesn’t mean that we are paying less attention to the beauty of each model, but what we do today is to create designs that enable the whole Mazda line-up to represent a unique, consistent message.”

The CX-3 subcompact crossover SUV presents all the essentials people look for in a car; a design of overwhelming quality and style with packaging developed solely with the customer's comfort and usage in mind. In every model, Mazda provides a responsive driving feel with the aesthetic enjoyment that drivers strive for.

The CX-3 was developed to suit our customer's creative lifestyle in any scene, from big city driving, commuting, to enjoying the great outdoors.

The head-turning CX-3 combines the maneuverability of a small hatchback with the extra height of a crossover. It also features available all-wheel drive, Mazda's trademark sporty handling and a stylish, well-equipped cabin with a standard touchscreen interface.

Excellent fuel economy is another welcome CX-3 trait; you’ll find sporty handling, quiet at speed, attractive, high-quality interior with appealing features combined in a single vehicle.

With front-wheel drive, you'll see an impressive 31 mpg in combined city/highway driving, according to the EPA, while the all-wheel-drive version registers 29 mpg highway. That probably out-performs any other vehicle in this category. Unlike many vehicles that are strong on fuel efficiency, the CX-3 still has a very able acceleration that makes highway merging and passing stress free.

The 2016 Mazda CX-3 is a five-passenger subcompact crossover SUV available in Sport, Touring and Grand Touring trim levels.

The 2016 CX-3's cabin shows excellent execution overall, with high-quality materials and a sleek presentation. The Grand Touring's large central tachometer and integrated digital speedometer look great and are easy to read. All available trims benefit from a 7-inch touchscreen interface. The graphic display is crisp and the handy auxiliary control knob on the center console is convenient.

The CX-3's front seats provide stellar comfort for this vehicle category, a firm support for long hauls and ample lateral bolstering for quick drives.

 

Cargo capacity in the CX-3 checks in at 12.4 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 44.5 cubes with the rear seatbacks folded down.
