You'll Like This Car If...
If you’re looking for a subcompact with an all-weather drivetrain, racy good looks and exemplary ride and handling characteristics, we think Mazda’s 2018 CX-3 deserves a test drive. While not big on back-seat legroom, with the rear seats folded down, the CX-3 offers a decent amount of cargo space.
You May Not Like This Car If...
If you need maximum interior room, the Honda HR-V or Kia Soul is a more appealing choice. Tech fans will find the CX-3’s infotainment system isn’t as up-to-date as its rivals, while those planning light off-road adventures will probably be better off in a Jeep Renegade Trailhawk.
What's New for 2018
As part of its standard equipment, the 2018 CX-3 gains Mazda’s Smart City Brake Support. New options this year include a heated steering wheel, full-color Active Driving Display and a power driver’s seat with memory. Revisions to the CX-3’s suspension improve handling and comfort while reducing road noise.
