The Mazda CX-3 proved to be the best value for my daughter's first car. I did extensive research, and while this is a smaller SUV/crossover than some of the other SUV's I researched, it has amazing safety ratings (an IIHS top safety pick) and the gas mileage can't be beat (27 mpg city, 32 mpg highway). Since we were looking at used cars, we were able to get a significantly newer vehicle with far fewer miles on it than other smaller SUV's we were looking at while still being assured that our daughter would be safe when driving it.

I have the sport which is the bottom of the line but it is more car and style for the money compared to other choices in their same league. I absolutely love it!!! Sole Red ...complements all the time! Great on gas!
Great car all around. Nothing too fancy, but everything you need. Great bang for your buck. Has anyways got me from point A to point B. Sporty look and drive. Plenty of leg room and comfort for the extended drives. Average between 20-23 MPG.
I love my new Mazda3 Sport, it really meets all that I want in a car. Small, efficient, comfortable, and reliable. The interior is beautiful. The safety features are great, with city safe breaking and blind spot monitoring. I wish I could have upgraded to a higher trim package to get the rest of the safety features, but unfortunately that would have required getting leather interior, which I do not want. I am very happy with the price I paid for this new vehicle, and the warranties offered by Mazda make me feel confident in my decision on the Mazda3.
This car has exeeded all of my expectations. It is comfortable, quiet, and has great acceleration. All of the features, including radar cruise control and other electronic safety devices are awesome. To get these features in other cars you need to buy a top of the line package, but, in Mazda they are in all of them. I love my car.
I've had so many thing go wrong with this car. Very disappointing. Poor quality. Airless conditioning stopped working. Infotainment system continually restarts in even 1 degree weather. Persistent noise from front end. Shoddy trim. Will likely sell and go back to my trusted Subaru Forester.
I did quite a bit of test driving and reading about the various cars and suvs in the similar segment. I was impressed by how far Mazda has come along to design and built good looking cars, engines, chassis, etc. The CX-5 is a 2.4 L 4 cylinder developing 185 hp. The interior design and quality is up market. The exterior design is smooth and sporty. The engine for its size and power is very peppy and responsive. The suspensions are stiff enough to give you great handling and making you feel like a semi sports car on rails. The model i bought was a Grand Touring variant which has a sports mode and also a trip Tronic gear box. The trip tronic gear box is sensitive to your input of up shifting or down shifting but half a second slower from our input. The sports mode is wild and makes the car up shift and down shift based on our tune of driving. The sports mode and the Trip Tronic shifting combined is pretty responsive. The automatic gear is pretty smooth. I also found the road noise is reduced, no wind noise as the cabin is well sound proofed. The engine grunt can be heard inside when the engine is revving at a higher rpm. The overall comfort is good, little bumpy since the suspensions are stiff. The fuel consumption is not the highest in the class and gave about 23.5 miles per gallon. This is should be fact that the engine is towards more responsive and quick compared to a economy mode engine. The 19 inch wheels with 255 size tyres adds to the handling. Overall, I am happy with the car and would recommend to anyone looking for a family suv/cross over that is powerful, conformable and handles well.
Has the feel of a sporty car and handles very well. Smooth ride. Good gas mileage and little maintaince costs. Could have a little more legroom in back. Lip on trunk opening limits size of what can put in.
Would like a cup holder in drivers door. Husband has limited mobility and has difficult time getting in and out and adjusting the seat back tilt. He also feel the door handle is too far back and his elbow is stopped by the back of the seat. Like the backup camera and that it beeps when a car approaching from side, not just behind the car. Love the alerts on the mirrors of car in blind spot. Like GPS, but not always intuitive. Disappointed it doesn't seem to have moveable headlights.
I bought it because it looked cool and I have never heard anything bad about Mazda. After two months of owning this car it has met all my expectations and then some! It’s teally fun and comfortable to drive. Really enjoy it and would highly recommend buying one
I don’t know if it was because I updated from a 2008 to a 2015, but my Mazda3 Hatchback is one of the best vehicles in its class. Even for a 2015, now almost 4 years old, still on the same level as some 2017’s on the road. The interior creates a minimal yet luxury feel. But I think one of its greatest aspects is simply its drive. Can drive over bumps, rough road, and sharp turns with ease. No cheap ’rickity’ feel or sound. Extremely sturdy and soft on the road, if that makes sense. Definitely recommend!
This is one nice car. Rides sooooo well plus decent mileage. Love all of the GT features including the Mazda Radar range which automatically slows down while on cruise if someone inform pulls out without looking. Car is in great shape. No accidents. Awesome paint job. Been garage kept since day 1.Florida car
