About the CX-3

The Mazda CX-3 was launched into the incredibly competitive subcompact crossover SUV market back in 2014, ready for the 2016 model year. In the US and Europe it ran until 2021, before being wrapped up and replaced with the Mazda CX-30, which was initially released in 2020. With that relatively short lifespan, the CX-3 came in a single generation starting in 2016, and receiving a facelift in 2018.

In the newest format post-facelift, it was available in 1 trim level, Sport, along with an AWD version of the same trim, the Sport AWD. Both were very good value starting at $21,965 and $23,140 respectively.

Mazda was fairly generous with standard features in the later editions, including a 7-inch touchscreen, blind-spot monitoring, automatic climate control, a driver HUD, lane-departure warning, and automated emergency braking all included. It achieved fairly good gas mileage too at 34-mpg on the highway (32-mpg for the AWD) version, and 29-mpg in the city (27-mpg for the AWD version). These are actually better ratings than its 2022 CX-30 successor, which only offers 24-mpg in the city and 31-mpg on the highway.

The CX-3 is powered by a 146-hp 4-cylinder engine as standard, which while not the strongest and while suffering from excess noise on the way, still offered pleasing driving dynamics and excellent driver control.

For such an affordable model, the CX-3 offered a very pleasing and well-detailed interior design, feeling both comfortable and upscale in its finish. It did suffer like many compact crossovers, however, from a shortage of space in the rear seat compartment. However, a solid choice of high-quality and soft-touch materials really added an upmarket ambiance that all passengers could appreciate.

The NHTSA awarded the CX-3 a 5-star rating, and it also received a Top Safety Pick Award from the IIHS. Besides those features mentioned above as standard, one more standard safety feature was rear cross-traffic alert.
