The 2020 Mazda CX-3 is stylish but impractical for a crossover SUV.

Pros
Perky styling
Lots of safety gear
Good mpg
Decent ride and handling

Cons
Cramped rear seat
Limited cargo room
Frustrating infotainment
Grand Touring is pricey

By:

Mazda bestowed a bounty of updates during the previous model year, which include visual refreshments and additional driver assists, but the company doesn't make any significant changes to the 2020 CX-3 lineup.

Pros
Drives better than its rivals,
drinks less fuel than its rivals,
looks better than its rivals.

Cons
Back seat and cargo area are too small,
coarse engine noises,
can't hide harsh bumps.
