The first sub-compact crossover in Mazda’s lineup, the CX-3, has been reviewed recently by Consumer Reports.
The Mazda CX-3 is probably one of the best-looking vehicles in its class, thanks to the Kodo design language, but is this really as good as the carmaker is stating? Well, this is what Consumer Reports is trying to answer in their newest review of the crossover and we just have to be spoilers and let you know that they “decided” to absolutely love the vehicle. If we’ve made you curious about why this has happened, all you have to do is check out the video posted below.
The new Mazda CX-3 is aiming towards some heavy names on the B-segment for crossovers, which includes the Nissan Juke, the Opel Mokka, the Renault Captur, Peugeot 2008, Chevrolet Trax, Ford EcoSport and so on. The model in question is getting the Hill Start Assist, Dynamic Traction Control, push-button start, tire pressure monitor, power side mirrors, USB, air conditioning, electric windows and may more, all of them coming on the entry-level version. This is also getting the 2.0 liter SkyActiv G120 six-speed manual. Mazda is also offering the 150 PS version of the petrol burner, along with the 105 PS 1.5L SkyActiv-D. The range-topping CX-3 is getting the automatic climate control, power moonroof, leather / lux suede upholstery, heated front seats, LED taillights, fog lights and 18-inch alloy wheels, amongst others. In Europe, the cheapest CX-3 starts from 15,290 EUR.
