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
