Introduction

The Mazda CX-3 is a serious contender among subcompact crossover SUVs, a hot category. Sporty, attractive, and practical, the 2017 CX-3 is available at attractive prices and gets great gas mileage.

Introduced for 2016, the CX-3 hasn’t changed, apart from placing larger (18-inch) wheels on midrange 2017 Mazda CX-3 Touring models. Its platform stems from the Mazda 2, a subcompact car like the Scion iA no longer sold in the U.S.

The CX-3 is available with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. All-wheel drive comes with predictive features.

All Mazda CX-3 models come with the same powertrain: a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine driving a 6-speed automatic transmission. Developing a modest 146 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque, the engine doesn’t sound like a powerhouse, yet it manages to deliver a level of enthusiastic energy and driving fun that’s not often found in the crossover SUV world. We found the CX-3 fun to drive.

At the same time, the CX-3 achieves frugal gas-mileage estimates from the Environmental Protection Agency: 29/34 mpg City/Highway, or 31 mpg Combined. Mazda’s subcompact ranks among the best in its vehicle class. The Honda HR-V, a recent entrant and strong competitor against Mazda, is rated 28/35 mpg City/Highway, 31 mpg Combined.

In crash-testing by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the CX-3 earned a five-star rating overall, and for frontal and side impacts (four-star for rollovers). One safety concern arose, though: In side-impact testing, the left rear door collapsed into the passenger area, raising the risk for spinal injury. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the 2016 CX-3 Good ratings in each test, naming it a Top Safety Pick +.

Mazda offers an i-ActivSense group of active safety features, including lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, adaptive headlights, automatic emergency braking, and rain-sensing wipers. It’s a $1,170 option ($750 less than the 2016 version), but only for the top Grand Touring model.

Lineup

Mazda CX-3 comes with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive ($1,250).

CX-3 Sport ($19,960) includes air conditioning, Mazda Connect infotainment with a 7-inch touchscreen, rearview camera, cruise control, power windows/locks, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, keyless start, and Bluetooth streaming audio and phone connectivity.

CX-3 Touring ($21,960) adds blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, six-speaker sound, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and heated mirrors. An optional Tech Package includes premium Bose audio, a panoramic moonroof, satellite radio, HD radio, and a cargo cover.

Grand Touring ($24,990) comes with paddle shifters, a head-up display, leather seat upholstery with suede inserts, heated front seats, LED adaptive headlights, LED foglamps and taillights, Bose seven-speaker audio, satellite radio, navigation, and automatic climate control. The i-ActivSense ($1,170) suite of active safety features is available.

Six airbags are standard. (All prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

Walkaround

In a world of near-lookalike crossover models, the CX-3 is simply stunning, visually. Mazda’s designers appear to have adopted a goal of minimalism, but there’s nothing dull about the CX-3.

The body features sheetmetal transformed into a blend of sensuously flowing shapes and mildly complex forms. Taken as a whole, the end result comes across as both athletic and elegant, complementing the CX-3’s cabin, which is sportier in theme than most vehicles of this sort. Its stylish exterior makes excellent use of Mazda’s Kodo design language, developed some years ago.

Interior

Stepping inside, you can be excused for thinking that you’ve entered a Mazda3 hatchback. A tastefully laid-out dashboard, augmented by soft-touch components, helps deliver a premium look and feel. Climate controls appear sturdy, the steering wheel looks simple and modern, and instruments are clear as well as informative. In short, the interior is elegant and tasteful, to an extent not typically seen in smaller crossover SUVs.

On the negative side, the monochrome gauges have a low-budget, excessively basic look. Mazda’s head-up display, standard in Grand Touring models, lags in crispness, too.

Considering the CX-3’s compact exterior dimensions, cabin space is decent enough, depending on where you’re sitting. Up front, two adult males get sufficient head, leg, and shoulder room. Back-seat accommodations are less inviting. Legroom is about the same as BMW’s 3 Series, but the CX-3’s sloping roofline sharply reduces head space for back-seat riders.

Out back, the cargo floor is flat and rear seats can fold down to expand available space. Despite the tailgate angle, cargo volume comes to an acceptable 12.4 cubic feet, growing to 44.5 cubic feet with rear seatbacks down.

Driving Impressions

Swift might not be the most accurate description of CX-3 performance, but Mazda’s smallest crossover is emphatically brisk. Push on the accelerator pedal, and the 146-horsepower engine springs smartly into action.

Mazda has long been known for focusing on the driving experience, and the CX-3 is one more example of that successful formula. In a segment that tends to be somewhat dreary, Mazda’s entrant maintains a sporty personality and abundant road feel, inspiring a welcome level of confidence along with motoring pleasures.

On the highway and during suburban jaunts, the 2.0-liter engine typically purrs quietly. Around town, however, particularly when merging into traffic, growling sounds become noticeable. Pushed hard in Sport mode, the engine responds vigorously, willing to rev toward its 6500-rpm limit. But the sound it makes isn’t so satisfying.

Paddle shifters are standard on the Grand Touring, but unavailable for Sport or Touring editions. The 6-speed automatic on those models may be manually-shifted using a gate on the gearshift lever.

Low curb weight helps produce the CX-3’s peppy nature. With front-drive, it weighs a mere 2,809 pounds. Adding about 143 pounds to total weight, the available all-wheel-drive system doesn’t detract from the CX-3’s ability to maneuver nimbly through quick corners.

In the smallest crossover SUV category, the CX-3 ranks high for fuel-efficiency, comparable to the Chevrolet Trax and Honda HR-V. With front-drive, it’s EPA-rated at 29/34 mpg City/Highway, or 31 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive drops the estimate to 27/32 mpg City/Highway, or 29 mpg Combined.

Summary

The Mazda CX-3 delivers impressive performance for its class, zoom-zoom handling and an appealing set of standard features. Fun to drive, the CX-3 provides good value for a comparatively moderate price.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
