Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Mazda CX-3

John Diether
Automotive Editor - February 10, 2020
  • 2020 CX-3 arriving now; 2019s still in stock
  • Up to $1,750 rebate on 2019s
  • Lease a 2020 from $205 for 36 months
  • 0.9% APR for 72 months on 2019s

2020s rolling in:

The 2020 Mazda CX-3 continues arriving at dealers nationwide. The Touring and Grand Touring trims have been dropped, which means upscale features like leather seats are no longer available. The sole remaining model is the Sport, which now comes with standard automatic emergency braking.

The 2019 CX-3 is still in stock and should remain on sale for at least another month.

The CX-3 isn't as plentiful as the larger CX-5, but supplies are usually sufficient to meet demand.

Mazda is also now selling a new crossover called the CX-30, positioned just above the CX-3. The CX-30 is five inches longer, more powerful, and $1,500 costlier than the CX-3.

Current factory offers vary by region and will remain in effect through March 2, 2020. Examples shown here are for Los Angeles. Mazda usually enhances incentives for Presidents' Day weekend.

Up to $2,500 off:

Mazda continues to offer a $1,750 rebate on the 2019 Touring and Grand Touring. The rebate on the 2019 Sport has just increased to $1,500.

In addition, current Mazda customers are eligible for a $750 loyalty bonus toward a purchase or lease.

There is no standard rebate yet on the incoming 2020 CX-3, but buyers who finance through Mazda are eligible for a $500 finance bonus. The loyalty bonus is also available.

What to expect on a lease:

You can now lease a 2020 CX-3 Sport from $205 for 36 months (12,000 miles a year) with $2,999 due at signing.

The effective monthly cost of this lease is $288, which falls short of a good value for this price class. We expect to see gradual improvement over the next few months.

Lease offers on the 2019 CX-3 have ended.

Snag a low rate:

Instead of the standard rebate, Mazda offers 0.9% APR for 72 months on the 2019 CX-3. You can combine it with the loyalty bonus if you qualify.

There are no advertised rates on the 2020 CX-3 yet, but buyers who finance through Mazda will receive $500 bonus cash.

2020 Mazda CX-3: Model Preview

Alex Bernstein
Senior Pricing Analyst - December 16, 2019

Model Preview

The Mazda CX-3 will only be offered in a single trim for 2020 following the introduction of the 2020 CX-30.

According to an early order guide, Mazda has discontinued Touring and Grand Touring trims, leaving just the entry-level Sport. At the same time, Mazda is adding new standard equipment to make the CX-3 an even more value-oriented option in its lineup.

No major changes are coming in terms of styling, although Mazda's order guide shows the Sport will gain automatic headlights and daytime running lights that use LED technology for a more premium look and better efficiency. Drivers will also benefit from the addition of rain-sensing wipers.

Inside, the updated CX-3 will support both Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, a welcome relief for shoppers looking for the latest connectivity. The 2020 CX-3 will also feature automatic climate control. That said, the loss of higher trims means that options like leather seats will no longer be available in any CX-3 and require an upgrade to the CX-30.


Under its hood, the CX-3 will continue to feature a 2-liter naturally-aspirated engine paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The powerplant makes 148 hp and 146 lb-ft of torque, quite a bit less than the new CX-30 and its 2.5-liter mill that makes 186 hp and 186 lb-ft.

Safety tech will see the biggest changes with the inclusion of features previously optional with the i-Activsense Package. As a result, the CX-3 will gain features like automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control with stop & go capability, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and more.

Expect a full review closer to launch.

Pricing & Release Date

Prices for the 2020 Mazda CX-3 will start at $21,685 including destination for the front-wheel-drive Sport trim. All-wheel-drive will add $1,400 for an MSRP of $23,085.

Compared to the 2019 Mazda CX-3, this represents a $250 price increase. As a result, this will narrow the gap in price with the CX-30 to just $1,260. Will the CX-3's new price prevent it from cannibalizing CX-30 sales? That remains to be seen.

Look for the 2020 CX-3 to go on sale by early January at dealers nationwide.

Competitors include the Honda HR-V, Chevrolet Trax, and Nissan Kicks.
