When you’re Mazda, and you’ve already stepped into the compact and midsize crossover market, you might as well go all in and take a piece of the subcompact crossover market too. That’s exactly why Mazda decided to release the Mazda CX-3 – an SUV that looks more like slightly larger and jacked up Mazda 3 5-Door that the other CX-models. As expected, the CUV has a detailed exterior that is a continuation of the KODO Soul of Motion design language and an interior that is similar to that of its bigger brethren. Inside you’ll find stadium seating, a large passenger compartment (for a subcompact) and engaging ergonomics. Under the hood, a Skyactiv, 2.0-liter four-cylinder sends power to a six-speed automatic. Front-wheel drive is a standard feature, while all-wheel drive is an option. On top of the beautiful and functional cabin, the CX-3 also comes with a decent list of active and passive safety features that are common in the market.

The CX-3 went on sale in August of 2015 as a 2016 model and so far seems to be performing reasonably well. With seating for five and the ability to pull 35 mph, the only thing (aside from styling) that sets it apart from the CX-5 is the starting price of $19,960 – about $2,000 cheaper than its bigger brother. With that said, the CX-3 is a sporty little crossover and looks to work well for smaller families or those who don’t need to haul a ton of heavy cargo. So, let’s take a closer look at the CX-3 and all of the specifics that surround Mazda’s newest crossover.

Update 6/6/2016: Mazda has released pricing for the 2017 Mazda CX-3. Check the Prices section below for all the details.
