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

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.

Subaru's popular subcompact crossover gains a host of new features for 2020, starting with an auto stop-start system for models equipped with the continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Automatic climate control, Subaru's Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) selectable driving modes, and a new collision-detection automatic door-unlock system are also standard across the range. The mid-range Premium model now can be equipped with a six-way power-adjustable driver's seat and keyless entry with push-button start. Limited models get new LED fog lamps and both the Limited and the Hybrid come with rear-seat USB charging ports.

Pros
Rugged styling,
carlike ride and handling,
available plug-in hybrid.

Cons
Mediocre acceleration,
boring interior appearance,
cramped cargo area.
