Mazda has updated its smallest SUV, the CX-3, to be a little classier for 2019, but it remains a choice for buyers who value driving fun and style over maximum utility. We'll take you through the changes.
What Is the 2019 Mazda CX-3?
The Mazda CX-3 is a subcompact SUV that seats five. It’s powered by a 148-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that works with a six-speed automatic transmission. Front- and all-wheel-drive versions are available. Competitors include the Fiat 500X, Ford EcoSport and Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.
What's New on the 2019 Mazda CX-3?
An electronic parking brake is now standard, and the center console and armrest have been revised for more storage space. The front seats are new and can be finished in full-leather upholstery. Exterior changes include new grille styling, taillights and wheels.
What Features in the 2019 Mazda CX-3 Are Most Important?
Numerous high-tech safety features are available, including pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability and lane departure warning. Available upscale features include a head-up display, heated steering wheel and adaptive LED headlights.
Should I Buy the 2019 Mazda CX-3?
If you are looking for an affordable subcompact SUV with better-than-average interior quality, the CX-3 is worth a look. It offers a lot of high-end features, but its backseat is especially small and its multimedia interface isn't great to use.
