Top Choice: The Mazda CX-3

Mazda CX-3

Small crossovers are all the rage right now and although the #MazdaCX-3 is only a year old, it’s already a hot commodity. So hot, in fact, that it’s been called the best compact crossover in the market.


Seriously, what’s not to love about it? It’s good looking with a stylish body line that runs nicely from its short front to its sleek tail lights and twin exhausts. It’s interior doesn’t disappoint either.


The Grand Touring trim is Mazda’s most popular choice for its whole and luxurious feeling. While it’s true that sitting in any Mazda model or trim will make you feel comfortable and at ease, the top of the line trim, Grand Touring, offers more premium features like a leather trim.


The dashboard is trimmed with a long padded leather strip. The surrounding surfaces, such as the doors and console, are also lined with leather. The contrasting colors, on all available color combinations, compliment each other very well. The comfortable seats also come lavished in these gorgeous premium materials.


Let’s talk about what’s under the hood. The CX-3 has a SkyActiv 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 146 horsepower. This arrangement carries the crossover just fine but if you’re looking for a more powerful drive, just make use of the Sport Mode. It’s a lot of fun!


At $28,510, you can enjoy this with the ActivSense package included. This consists of lane-departure warning, blind spot monitoring, smart brake support, radar cruise control, high-beam control and variable rain-sensing wipers.
