One of the most engaging SUVs on the market, the Mazda CX-3 has a rare athletic ability in the chassis and an equally exceptional classiness in the cabin to set it apart from its peers. Mazda has made engine improvements that allow for a few extra horses in the output. The decent 148 horsepower is just the beginning, as the CX-3 throws in a well-calibrated suspension and steering systems. Additionally, Mazda has included some suitable features including push-button start, specified infotainments system, and a Brake Support with forward-collision mitigation. The CX-3 also has an attractive design that rivals more luxury brands.
The CX-3 is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 148 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque. This configuration pairs with a six-speed automatic transmission and the option of either front-wheel or all-wheel-drive. Stepping up to the GT trim provides the opportunity for more driver engagement thanks to the addition of paddle shifters which allows manual control over gear changing and gets the most out of the engine. Lower trims focus on the impressive fuel economy as the CX-3 gets up to 34 mpg on the highway.
Standard on every trim of the Mazda CX-3 is a Mazda Connect Infotainment system which includes a dash-mounted 7-inch monitor, a rearview camera, voice command, and a multi-function dial control that looks like it came from a luxury sedan. Also included are Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, USB port, push-button start, cruise control, tilt/telescope steering wheel, keyless entry, and power windows and locks. The CX-3 adds Mazda's Smart City Brake Support which automatically applies the breaks at speeds under 19 mph. Going with the Touring trim gets you 18-inch alloy wheels, sunroof, automatic climate control, rain-sensing wipers, and heated side mirrors. The CX-3 also includes some terrific saftey features including blind-spot monitoring with rear-cross traffic control. Stretch to the Grand Touring models, and you will get LED headlights, fog lights, navigation, Bose audio, and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. With this top-level, you are eligible for a GT Premium package with radar-based cruise control, power-adjustable driver's seat and heated steering wheel.
With an available suite of ingenious saftey features, you are automatically alerted to any potential hazards, including potential collisions. An available High Beam Control helps the driver see better during nightfall by maximizing opportunities to use your high beams. The system will automatically switch to low beams when it detects oncoming traffic or any vehcile ahead. With a Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Mazda has your back. When backing up this system helps identify a vehcile approaching from the side while alerting the driver with an audible warning. Also included is a Lane Departure Warning system which gives you audible and visual warnings when it detects that you're about to depart from your lane intentionally.
With SUVs becoming a growing class, it can be hard for car companies to stand out. Luckily thanks to an increase in engine power, substantial fuel economy numbers, and a comprehensive list of available saftey features, the Mazda CX-3 is a definite standout. The attractive luxury design rivals that of the luxury brands and the real leather and contrasting piping in the interior is certainly a nice touch.
