Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2019, the Mazda CX-3 receives a refresh that includes new exterior touches, a very slight increase in engine output, redesigned seats, and front and rear center armrests. Some features have also been shuffled between trim levels, and advanced safety features are available across the lineup.

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
Cramped rear seat
Below-average cargo space

The 2019 Mazda CX-3 fails to launch in the crossover-SUV space race.

Pros
Great, simple exterior shape
Good standard touchscreen
Standard advanced safety features
Competitive fuel economy

Cons
Cramped rear seat
Not much cargo room with seats up
Finicky infotainment system
Small safety demerit

the 2019 CX-3 retains its trapezoidal bar grille but has a new inner grille design. New lower chrome trim on the sides complements the carryover side-sill chrome slat, while the headlights carry on unchanged. The rear lights, however, see a new design that’s more similar to those in front, with a round eye accented by straight lines.Inside, Mazda replaced the prior cable-operated parking brake with an electronic unit with an automatic hold feature and incorporated it into the center console next to the rotary infotainment dial. That change opens up some real estate on the console, and the mode selector has been relocated behind the shifter’s PRND indicator, the previous gloss-black surround is gone, the cupholders are repositioned, and the armrest gets a comfier makeover.

Mazda says the front seats, which can be ordered with full leather on top trims for the first time, have been completely redesigned to be wider and more comfortable. The dashboard wears new faux-suede appliqués, the climate-control dials feature flashy red accents, and the rear seats have a new fold-down center armrest with cupholders. Together, these small changes add up to a tidier and classier look.

A bit phoned-in from Audi. It's fine, but the only USP is that badge.

Pros
Bold styling (for Audi),
should be a doddle to live with.

Cons
Few benefits over an A3,
on big wheels the ride is atrocious.

The Audi Q2 is a desirable and fine-driving small SUV with an impressive interior. It also has one of the best infotainment systems in the class. Yes, there are cheaper alternatives, but Audi's smallest SUV justifies its cost will its superb all-round ability.

Pros
Classy and user-friendly interior
Tidy handling
Slow depreciation

Cons
More expensive than some rivals
Mini Countryman is more practical
Firm ride with 19in alloys

Pros
Dependable handling
First-rate packaging
Lower Q-range price point

Cons
Anodyne identity
Slightly breathless petrol engine
Higher trim level expense
