Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Mazda CX-3 ranks 2 out of 12 Subcompact SUVs. The Mazda CX-3 is bursting with fun, featuring best-in-class performance and sporty handling that more resembles a car than an SUV. It has a comparatively low base price, yet the interior is marked by impressive materials and a handsome design. The CX-3 comes up short on rear passenger room and cargo space, however, which detracts from its convenience.

Pros
Excellent athletic handling
Class-leading fuel economy
Impressive interior design
Outstanding crash test results

Cons
Cramped rear seat
Small cargo area

Many compact crossover SUVs aren't so "compact" anymore. But the petite 2017 Mazda CX-3 might be just what you're after. It's stylish, easy to park and fun to drive. If interior space isn't a priority, this could be your ideal crossover.For 2017, the CX-3 carries over unchanged.

Pros
Excellent fuel economy
Sporty handling helps you have fun behind the wheel
Impressively quiet at highway speeds
Front seats are very comfortable and supportive
Attractive, high-quality interior with appealing features.

Cons
Snug rear seat and humble cargo capacity limit the CX-3's versatility.

The 2017 Mazda CX-3 keeps the most attractive features from last year: its price and its handling.Looks only tell half of the 2017 Mazda CX-3's story: The body cladding and badging on the CX-3 point toward a soft-roader based on the fun-to-drive Mazda 3, but there's more to its tale.The CX-3 earned a 7.2 overall rating on our scale, which is fairly high for the budget hatchback. We like its fuel economy and features, but it has room to improve on features and overall comfort.

Pros
Ample features and good value
Available all-wheel-drive system
Good handling and impressive performance for segment
Easy to learn infotainment

Cons
No manual, paddle shifters only on top models
Not a lot of rear seat room
Monochrome gauges look cheap
Head-up display is nice, but not very useful

Despite being the brand's smallest SUV, the 2017 Audi Q2 has some big shoes to fill, especially considering it costs nearly as much as its slightly bigger brother, the Q3.
the new Audi Q2 is a pretty solid all-round package. It looks and (for the most part) feels premium, offers the company's latest infotainment and driver assist technologies, and can be personalised to a far greater extent than its stablemates thanks to the array of bright colours, contrasting body elements, and affordable option packages.

Pros
Effortless performance
Sporty dynamics
Practical cabin
All-round ability
Quattro grip
Bold design inside and out
Decent equipment list

Cons
Options can get pricey, some features should be standard
Tyre roar at higher speeds
Firm ride can be harsh over sharper bumps
Stingy use of soft-touch plastics
Limited cabin storage

Small SUVs have been a thing for a while now, so it seems odd that it's only now Audi has finally brought its take on the idea to market. The Q2 enters the fray in a segment occupied by a gaggle of (cheaper) French and Japanese cars, as well and the new Mini Countryman.

Pros
Great looks
Good chassis
Decent spec list

Cons
Rear storage, especially in the 1.4
Some cheap plastics
1.4's ride/handling (relative to 2.0 TDI)

By:

The Audi Q2 is an upmarket crossover that shares its platform with the Audi A3. It is an obvious rival to the Mini Countryman, but the company also hopes its premium badge can tempt buyers away from the likes of the funkily styled Nissan Juke, Renault Captur and Citroen Cactus. An elephant in the room comes in the form of the Q3, which can’t match the Q2’s box-fresh appeal but is slightly bigger and also available with larger savings.
Audi has given the Q2 distinctive looks that mark it out from the rest of the range, which tends to be conservatively styled.

Pros
Great cabin
Modern engines
Spacious for its size

Cons
Gets pricy with options
Some rivals are more practical
No fast version yet
