Introduction

The 2018 Mazda CX-3 has been significantly improved over the 2017 version of the subcompact crossover. It’s nothing you can see, and it’s not easy for a manufacturer to hype, but a number of updates improve the car: new suspension bushings, control arms, engine mounts and more sound-deadening material. Such improvements occur year after year, with Mazda, and many updates go unreported.

The CX-3, built on the platform of the subcompact Mazda 2, was introduced for 2016, and has sold well. It’s sporty, attractive, practical, affordable, economical, and fun to drive.

The CX-3 is front-wheel drive, with available all-wheel drive.

It uses one powertrain, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. With a modest 146 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque, it manages to deliver enthusiasm and energy not often found in the crossover SUV world, while bringing EPA-rated mileage of 31 Combined miles per gallon, among the best in its class. Its top rival might be the Honda HR-V, which gets similar mileage. Another competitor, the Chevrolet Trax, gets similar mileage, as well.

The CX-3 gets top crash ratings by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, with five stars overall, including for frontal and side impacts (four stars for rollover). The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the CX-3 its top Good ratings in each test, naming it a Top Safety Pick Plus.

For the top CX-3 Grand Touring model, there is an available 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 called i-ActivSense, and is affordably priced.

Lineup

Mazda 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. Six airbags are standard.

Front-wheel drive is standard. All-wheel drive is available for all models ($1,250). (All prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

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 is optional ($1,170).

Walkaround

In a world of look-alike crossovers, the CX-3 stands out. Its stylish exterior follows Mazda’s Kodo design language, developed some years ago. It’s simple but not dull.

The sheetmetal blends sensuous and flowing forms with gently complex shapes, to come up with a profile that’s both athletic and elegant.

Interior

The cabin is sporty and tasteful, things not generally found in a subcompact crossover. It feels like the stylish Mazda3 hatchback. The instrument panel is neatly laid out, with surrounding soft-touch components, giving a premium look and feel. The climate controls are sturdy, the steering wheel simple and modern.

Unfortunately the monochrome gauges overdo the minimalism, and bring basic down to a feeling of low-budget. The head-up display that’s standard in the Grand Touring model brings it back up a bit, but the display isn’t crisp enough.

The cabin space is more or less good for a subcompact, in some places more good than others. In the front seats there’s enough head, leg, and shoulder room, but the rear seat is less inviting. Legroom is about the same as a BMW 3 Series, but the CX-3’s sloping roofline sharply reduces head room in the rear.

The rear seats fold down to expand the storage space onto a flat cargo floor. We love this in a subcompact crossover. The sloping liftgate, so stylish from the exterior, doesn’t significantly affect the space inside. With the rear seat up, the cargo capacity is an acceptable 12.4 cubic feet, growing to an impressive 44.5 cubic feet with the seatbacks down.

Driving Impressions

The CX-3 delivers brisk performance and sharp handling for the class.

When you step on the gas, the 146-horsepower engine responds smartly. The CX-3 weighs a mere 2,809 pounds, and that helps. All-wheel drive adds about 143 pounds, and lowers the fuel mileage by 2 mpg, but it doesn’t detract from the CX-3’s acceleration or ability to maneuver nimbly through corners.

Mazda is known for sharp dynamics and a superior driving experience, and the CX-3 does not betray that. That’s saying something for a subcompact crossover. Its personality is sporty and its road feel abundant. It inspires a refreshing level of confidence along with the motoring pleasures.

On the highway and during suburban jaunts, the 2.0-liter engine typically purrs quietly. In the city, however, especially when merging into traffic, you can hear it growl. 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.

Summary

The Mazda CX-3 is sporty, attractive, practical, affordable, economical, and fun to drive. It’s safe and has vast cargo space for a subcompact crossover. Mostly, it’s quick and nimble compared with the rest of the class.

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.
