It may be small but it has huge features.

I love my cx-3. I have the grand touring package with a stunning interior with a great sound system. Because it is a crossover, it is the perfect size. I also enjoy having heated seats and heated side view mirrors during the long winter months in mi. The only issue I have had is that the a/c seems to not work properly. Either it is because the way the car is setup does not allow for good airflow or there is an actual issue with my a/c that needs repair. But I have read that this is a common issue with the cx-3. My friends and family enjoy riding in it however those on the taller side have said there’s not much leg room in the backseat. All in all, I truly love my car and I have never been happier with a purchase.

Mazda cx-3: beautiful design, sporty drive, limited cargo space.

Pros: beautiful design (exterior and interior); sporty drive; handles curvy roads beautifully; good gas mileage; compact; comfortable front seating area; AWD; heated front seats; moonroof; heads up display is great (displays speed limit, navigation arrows, cruise control speed); rear seats fold down; rear view camera; daytime running lights. Cons: next to no cargo space; small back seating area; armrest in front seems easily breakable; no apple carplay; no front center console storage. Neutral: non-motorized seat adjustment; leather seats; headlights are not automatic.

Great mileage for the gas.

I like the sporty design, but wish I would have stayed with a larger SUV-type vehicle. The biggest problem is the lack of good traction on wintry roads. I miss that with having an SUV. Also, there is no place to store coins, a phone, or other objects. This may seem like an insignificant detail, but there are only cup holders, and not a storage area console. The pockets in the doors are not deep so they are not adequate places to place items you are using. I do like that it has a navigation system. The best part is that the vehicle is good on gas.
