What’s New?

The Mazda CX-3 SUV is arguably the most attractive-looking small SUV on this list. The Mazda CX-3 comes with heaps of road presence in spite of its size.  The Mazda CX-3 is a fresh model for 2016. The interior design has taken inspiration from Mazda-2 hatchback that feels great to sit in. however, its compact dimensions mean that it doesn’t score highly in terms of practicality as compared to other cars in the market.

Exterior Features

The 2016 Mazda CX-3 wears the manufacturer’s newest design themes and boasts black-painted rear roof pillars to provide the impression which this small crossover roof of SUV is floating with low support. The Grand Touring trim includes LED front running lights and 18″ aluminum wheels. The CX-3 is available in 8 different colors, including the ‘soul red’ which comes at an extra cost.

Stadium-design seating ensures that all Mazda CX-3’s occupants will be impressed with a good outward view, but with its foundation based upon a Mazda 2 platform the occupant compartment has no trouble bringing out upon the manufacturer’s stated intent to develop a “secure and snug” environment.

Technology

The newest version of the MazdaConnect infotainment system is available for the 2016 CX-3, using a freestanding screen atop center stack of controls and what Mazda describes as the commander control buttons surrounding the knob on the center console.
