Mazda cares about the driving experience. Mazda also cares about giving the consumer what they want which is the Mazda CX-3 compact crossover segment seen here; it’s fun to drive, well-built, and inexpensive. Even though the CX-3 is small, it benefits from a healthy dose of KODO styling. Prices range from $20,110 for the FWD sport model up to $26,415 for the Grand Touring with AWD.

Under the hood is a SkyActiv 2.0 liter 4-cylinder that makes 146 horsepower and 146 lf-ft. of torque. The transmission is a 6-speed manual. Fuel economy checks in at 29 MPG in the City and 34 MPG on the highway for the FWD model. The AWD model reduces these figures by 2 MPG.

Competition includes the Toyota C-HR, Honda HR-V, Jeep Renegade, Ford EcoSport, Hyundai Kona, and the Nissan Kicks.

      I've owned one of these for about 7 months. Base Sport model. Has everything on it I want. I think the 16" wheels make it ride a lot better than the 17" and they look better. Most comfortable car I've ever owned. Fun to drive and almost 32 MPG with AWD.

      Needs more power. If only you could get the back seat of the HR-V, the looks of the CX-3, and the performance of the Kona 1.6T you'd have the perfect mini crossover.

      before you lot say anything i own and drive a cx5 early 2016,just before the new one came a real good it to bits.i did drive the cx3 with a little 1.5 diesel engine.very good in looks and build quality and very good in is the bad bit,anybody who tells you you can fit 2 adults in the back and for them to be comfortable,is telling you a lie.the cx3 is shit at the back.if you are around 6ft tall as the driver for sure the only thing you can sit in the back is a little believe me?go and see a cx3 close up.

      2019 model has improved more than the 2018 it would be a waste to get the 2018 since it is the same as the 2016-2017 models. 2019 improved interior, better ride , improved sound dampers, 2 more hp to engine, center console improved. Nothing reported on the infotainment system if it has been improved since the current is very laggy and buggy and Nav system is not detailed as others in class. CX3 is still worth a look at also among standard features, there is the Smart Brake Support, Mazda Radar Cruise Control . As well, the manufacturer has added a few more options which include power driver’s set with memory, a heated steering wheel, and full-color driving display.

      I use the CX-3 with a car seat to send my son to school. It also fits 3 adults and 1 child in the child seat. But we are not so tall people (1.7 m and below). But our family car is the CX-5.

      I believe Consumer Reports auto survey came back as overall lower ratings as far as reliability, with Mazda as a brand. That was a little surprising. I do like the looks of this car, and the interior also looks great. Great gas mileage also, especially since it isn't a hybrid. My sister gets 33 overall on her Rav4 Toyota, which of course is a much bigger car. Hopefully I will be looking at cars in 6 months I will check this Mazda out. Maybe I will get last year's model by that time and save a little money. Thanks for a great review.

      Consumer Reports know nothing about cars. They review toasters, washing machines, and dishwashers.
