I'm looking for opinions on the 2017 Mazda3 Grand Touring Sedan...

I currently have the 2014 sTouring, but the dealer sent me an offer that lured me into the dealership, and they made a very good offer that will lower my monthly payment by about $60.00 a month. I'm just caught between thinking what I've already spent, and what I'll save (even though I know I'll still be spending more in the long run).

The biggest differences I notice are the Moonroof and the Smart City Braking package, oh, and the heated steering wheel... Anyone with experience and thoughts about the 2017 GT?

Thank y'all for the responses and thoughts - some great opinions for sure.

I think I will keep the 2014 for now. The 2017 was nice, but the few extra features when coupled with slightly lower mileage (1-2mpg), higher insurance, the extended payments, the moonroof (not a selling point for me), and the loss of the CD player... y'all are right - it isn't worth saving that little bit for a car that isn't "perfect" for me, even if it is a budget/economy car.

But if the Skyactiv2 comes out in 2018, and does what the reports say (30% increase in mileage) - that alone could sway the needle the other way.

Thanks again!
