Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Stonic looks quite serious despite the colorful accents – it’s for people who think that rainbow-coloured socks are the most outrageous thing they can wear

Pros
Seven-year warranty
Easy-to-use interior
Easy to drive

Cons
Noisy 1.6-litre diesel engine
Interior feels cut price
Tight in the back for passengers

By: 
carwow.co.uk

Better to drive than most other small crossovers, but similarly flawed overall.

Pros
Stylish to look at and agile around tow

Cons
Kia sells more practical cars for less money

By:

For 2018, low-speed automatic emergency braking is standard across the CX-3 lineup. Mazda says it has revised the CX-3's suspension to improve handling and ride quality and added more sound-reducing materials to make the CX-3 quieter. Small changes have been made to feature availability.

PROS
Attractive and comfortable interior
Engaging driving experience
Impressive fuel economy for a crossover
Good selection of available driver aids and active safety features

CONS
Suspension tuning may be too firm for some
Tight rear seat
Below-average cargo space

The 2018 Mazda CX-3 ranked #2 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Mazda CX-3 has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 32 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Sporty handling
Great gas mileage
Upmarket interior

Cons
Limited cargo room
Small back seat
Below-average predicted reliability rating

By:

One spirited drive behind the wheel of the CX-3 will have even the keenest driving enthusiasts singing its praises. We’ve come to expect playful driving dynamics, eager powertrains, and driver-focused interiors from Mazda—it’s the zoom-zoom brand, after all—and this subcompact crossover doesn’t disappoint. Once its practicality is under the microscope, however, the CX-3’s shine starts to fade. It’s small. Shoppers who prioritize cargo space and room for passengers would be better served by many of the CX-3’s rivals, or even a Mazda 3 hatchback. Even so, the CX-3 is on our short list of great crossovers, even if it’s solely for its corner-carving expertise and its fun-loving character.

Pros
Sweetest-driving mini crossover around,
class-leading fuel economy, eye-catching style.

Cons
Cramped rear seat,
limited cargo capacity,
dawdling infotainment responses.
