About Mazda CX-3

The Mazda CX-3 immediately established itself as the most fun-to-drive vehicle in the subcompact-SUV market when it was introduced last year, and that's going to remain the same story for the 2017 CX-3 as well. That's fine with us. While it's true that the CX-3 comes up short in cargo and rear-seat space compared to vehicles like the Kia Soul, Honda HR-V and Jeep Renegade, it blows them all away when it comes to driving satisfaction. About the only other subcompact SUV that comes close is the Fiat 500X, but with the Mazda, you get all the driving pleasure, even better styling, and in a package with a much more comfortable around-town ride.

"I replaced a 10 year-old Mazda3 with a 2017 CX-3 GT. My wife has a CX-5 GT. Even though CX-5 is great I really dont want to buy another one. I was initially concerned about the smaller engine, especially coming from a peppy Mazda3. Testing driving one completely changed my mind. It is just as peppy as the Mazda3. Handling is solid and precise. As a matter of fact, it is better than CX-5. Noise is a major area that the CX-5 is better. There is no body roll while making a turn, significantly better than CX-5. It has plenty of style and really sharp looking. Interior design is top notch. Now onto the negatives. Interior space is limited, but no a problem for me. Cargo storage is small, again not a deal breaker. The center cup holders are placed in a bad position underneath the arm rest; not deal breaker but surely an annoying one."

Pros: "Competitively priced,great looking,fun to drive"

Cons: "flimsy armrest oddly placed cup holders see below"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I agree with other reviews stating the car is suited for the single or married with ho children,back seat is only good for short people and short trips.The interior is nicely appointed except for the oddly placed cup holders that are under center armrest but there is a place in the door for water bottles or bottled soda with screw on caps. I would prefer a center console with storage under armrest because the only front seat storage is the glove box which is not a convenient place for spare change and other odds and ends.The fuel tank is small so if you drive in the sport mode and have a lead foot expect to make frequent gas stops. I find it very odd that the only way to turn the radio off is with the mute button so if you have a cd in the player I assume its running the whole time too.I think that is about all the complaints I have about the car but overall it is a great car thats fun to drive"

Pros: "Good looks(exterior & interior). CUV sports car!"

Cons: "Armrest is flimsy/unusable"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Exterior & interior appearance are truly handsome & unique. Power & handling feel like a sports car. If space is a priority this is not the ride for you. If driving dynamics/all-wheel-drive/good looks are priorities this IS the ride for you. Only negatives are noise level at high revs & armrest which is flimsy/unusable."
