Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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.

Sporty handling
Great gas mileage
Upmarket interior

Cons

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.

The Ford EcoSport looks to be a worthwhile offering in the subcompact segment.Although the Ford EcoSport is just now arriving in the United States, the automaker was actually one of the first to get in on the pint-size crossover game.

Pros
Cheeky style
Clean-looking interior
Choice of powertrains
Tailgate door could be useful

Cons
No AWD with 3-cylinder
Has been on sale globally for a long time
Tailgate may also be inconvenien

The EcoSport truly embraces the tiny ethos. It’s 16.8 inches shorter in length than an Escape and rides on a 6.7-inch-shorter wheelbase. Even within its competitive set—which includes the Jeep Renegade, the Honda HR-V, and the Chevrolet Trax, among others—the EcoSport is the runt of the litter. The Ford’s wheelbase is the shortest of the group, and most of its competitors are at least a half-foot longer overall.

Pros
User-friendly tech,
park it anywhere,
all-wheel drive is available.

Cons
Tight back seat,
modest power,
drinks gas like a bigger SUV.

Pros
Cute-ute styling fits with Ford showroom
Very nice interior materials
Lots of headroom
Large cargo area with seats folded
Sync3, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto available
Sync3, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto available

Cons
Side-hinged rear swing gate not good for urban parking
Unknown horsepower figures
Lesser trim models won’t have 8-inch screen
Cargo room is tight with seats up
Unknown fuel economy ratings
