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?

The 2017 was nice, but the few extra features when coupled with slightly lower mileage (1-2mpg)
If your old car has the 2.5L engine as well, there should be no fuel economy difference between it and the 2017 model. The EPA changed the way they do testing for 2017, yielding lower numbers. This also happened back in 2008 I think, so you can't compare EPA fuel economy figures between far-apart model years because of this.
