Long story short. My 2014 Mazda3 sGT (2.5L) met it's demise and now I am looking to replace it with similiar. Given the circumstances of it's demise, I'm thinking of getting the technology package with Smart City Braking as well.

I know exactly what I got in my 2014 model and remember the technology package was really a top-of-line add-on only. Does anybody have a summary of feature/changes between 2014-2017 model years and if the technology package was available on lower end trims? I'll still want the 2.5L engine.

I am in the USA market. Thanks.

Here's a small breakdown that I found at one point. When I was going to purchase a 2017 vs 2016. I can't post links so just remove the spaces. 1ijylmozio83m2nkr2v293mp.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Whats-New-for-2017-Mazda3_FINAL.pdf

^^^ Thanks. This helps for 2017. Looks like the Smart City Braking got into some lower trims levels which is good to hear. I'm considering new/used options for all model years between 2014-2017. New 2016 obviously have some good clearout deals right now. So if someone knows of year by year side by side comparisons that would be great. Thanks.

Thanks for your useful post. I have some queries:

What is PZEV emissions (50 state) under Powertrain?
Where has the additional sound insulation been placed and does it actually make a difference?
I like the new Sonic Silver colour - what do people think of it?
