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.

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.

The Santa Fe Sport’s cushy ride pairs with energetic handling for respectable on-road performance, but where the Sport shines is in its exceptionally well-appointed interior, wide array of available safety features, and price tag. The Santa Fe Sport delivers middling fuel economy, but its ample cargo hold makes up for some of that lost advantage and turns this compact version of the Santa Fe into a truly useful automobile.

Pros
Upscale interior,
agreeable to drive,
a features list as long as your leg.

Cons
Four-cylinder power in a V-6 class,
light on standard safety gear,
hoped-for fuel economy gone missing.

By:

The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport still does what good crossover SUVs do best: it delivers flexible space, decent performance, and great value.

Pros
Hits all the right crossover-SUV marks
Lots of standard features
A very good value, then and now
Clever sliding seat
Turbo-4’s minimal gas mileage penalty

Cons
Dull base engine
Gas mileage isn’t its strong suit
Could use better steering feel
4-cylinders only
