Contributing Editor -

One year removed from its debut, the 2017 Mazda CX-3 has a solid footing in the subcompact crossover utility vehicle segment. Some may consider the CX-3 a tall hatchback, given its relatively modest ground clearance. This model is versatile, handles well, and is fuel efficient. It is also nearly the same size as the Mazda 2, a model you can no longer get in the US.

What's New for 2017

Following its much-anticipated debut last year, the 2017 CX-3 features modest updates. Importantly, Mazda has held the line on its base price.

The CX-3’s 18-inch alloy wheels found in the Grand Touring edition are now standard in the Touring model. The other change of note is a sharp reduction in the price of the available Mazda i-ACTIVESENSE package of safety technologies in the Grand Touring edition—it's $750 cheaper this year.

Choosing Your Mazda CX-3

Mazda offers the 2017 CX-3 in three trim levels: Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is available for this five-passenger model.

Every 2017 CX-3 is powered by a 2-liter four-cylinder engine making 146 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque. This engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift mode and sport mode.

The EPA rates the front-wheel drive model at 29 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. The all-wheel drive model is rated at 27 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.

CX-3 Sport

Priced from $19,960, the CX-3 Sport edition is equipped with 16-inch alloy wheels and power side mirrors. Inside, you’ll find push-button start, cloth seats, a 7-inch Mazda Connect touchscreen infotainment system with voice commands, power door locks, air conditioning, a 6-speaker audio system, Bluetooth connectivity, and USB input.

CX-3 Touring

Step up to the CX-3 Touring edition and you’ll pay from $21,960 to purchase one. Besides the 18-inch alloy wheels, this edition adds integrated turn signal lamps to the heated side mirrors. Inside, you’ll find imitation leather and cloth seats, heated front seats, and a fold-down front center armrest with a built-in smartphone holder. Two additional safety features are included as well: blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. Add $1,410 for the Touring Premium Package with a Bose audio system, power moonroof, and other features.

CX-3 Grand Touring

At the apex of the CX-3 line is the Grand Touring edition with a base price of $24,990. This model brings in such lighting upgrades as LED adaptive headlights and LED fog lights. You also get automatic climate control, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, and a head-up display. The available i-ACTIVSENSE safety package brings in radar cruise control, brake support, lane departure warning, and high beam control.

CarsDirect Tip

Mechanically, all three trim levels are alike. Therefore, the Sport trim is a sensible place to begin shopping. Add $1,250 to obtain all-wheel drive.
