Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

What makes the Mazda 3 one of our favorite cars—not to mention a multi-time 10Best Cars winner? Its winning formula is simple and continues to win us over: sharp looks, a near-premium interior, and sublime driving dynamics. The 3 is available in both sedan and hatchback body styles, with one of two efficient inline-four engines and either a slick-shifting six-speed manual or an almost-as-satisfying six-speed automatic transmission.

Pros
Dapper styling,
joyous road manners,
upscale cabin and trimmings.

Cons
Lacks low-end grunt,
some ride choppiness,
short on luxury amenities.

For 2018, the Mazda 3 remains mostly the same, with only a shuffling of features and option packages.Grand Touring gets LED headlights as standard. Elsewhere, some option packages have been renamed, combined or dropped.

PROS
Sporty and confidence-inspiring performance
Some high-end features are unique to this class
Top crash test scores
Interior quality exceeds expectations

CONS
Cargo capacity isn't as large as the class leaders
Ride quality can be a little stiff with optional 18-inch wheels

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

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.
