Basic but has a luxurious feel. Great interior detail and sleek modern exterior.

2017 Mazda CX-3 Sport

This car is perfect for someone who doesn't travel with anyone but a passenger due to the back seat legroom being tight. It is just your basic car but does have a luxurious feel. It is equipped with everything you need technology wise. The system is easy to navigate. One thing I have experienced is the computer system can be slow once the car is started, the warning screen will take sometime to come up then stays after you hit the agree. This doesn't always happen but it is frustrating if you are trying to leave quickly and maybe need to take a call. Also noticed the windshield reservoirs is very small so you will run out faster than expected. Now with that being said I love this car, it is perfect for me and my lifestyle and love the look and feel.

It may be small but it has huge features.

2017 Mazda CX-3

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.

2017 Mazda CX-3

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.

- Brooke W

Great mileage for the gas.

2017 Mazda CX-3

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.

Good value, fun to drive, comfortable vehicle option!

2017 Mazda CX-3

We love that it has spacious interior & we can fit a lot inside when we need to haul things. The stereo system is decent and the seats are very comfortable. We like the comfort/smooth ride while on road trips. For the size of vehicle, the gas mileage is decent. We have taken friends on road trips and all sat comfortably in the car. One driver is tall and fits comfortably in the driver seat. One downfall we wish was better is that is the GPS does not always have the best route and is not user friendly to navigate.

- Kelly A

Smooth ride, efficient. No sacrifices.

2017 Mazda CX-3

Our new car handles like a dream. It rides very smooth and the turning radius is amazing. We really love the 'sport' mode. The seats are comfortable and the car is rather spacious. My only issue with the car is the access ability. It is a push button start but you have to press the key fob to open the doors, so it is a little clunky. The Mazda 3 is gas efficient while also being quite powerful for it is smaller engine. Even at 85 mph the ride is smooth and the vehicle handles very well.

- Jamie C

Keyless but not so much of keyless.

2017 Mazda CX-3

I do not have any problems with my current car. I leased it about an year and half ago so it is pretty new. I haven't had any issue with the car. One feature that I'd like to add is smart lock on the door. The starting system is the keyless but I only have to open the door with unlock button on the key which seems little odd for me at first.

- Jenny O

Amazing amount of features for price

2017 Mazda CX-3 Touring

The Cx-3 handles very nicely and can manage much more than competitors due to the large wheel size. The interior features and sport mode are very nice features for the price point. Imitation leather seats are available on lower trim models which is convenient for those who want the functionality of leather without the high price.

- Ali H

Fun to drive with some design flaws.

2017 Mazda CX-3

East to handle, roomy front seats, good gas mileage, good sigh through all windows. Small gas tank, no room in back seating row, there was no armrest in front. Had to pay extra to have one installed. And now it covers the cup holders, so you have to lift the armrest any time you want to drink something.

- Jeff S

The all wheel drive and heated seats were awesome.

2017 Mazda CX-3 Sport

No problems with anything besides it just bring to small to fit a grown person in the backseat. Always a nice driving dependable car have been in the snow and the sand in it and it holds up more than adequate on both terrains. The heated seats came in very handy when we lived in Vail Colorado for a year

- Aaron P

Great style but lacks function.

2017 Mazda CX-3

I love the seat warmers, power and comfort. It has a nice interior and I love the red leather details. I wish the ac had a little more power and the center console was designed differently. The center console has no storage. The armrest, when down, always jams my hand when I pull up the emergency break.

Benefits of the Mazda cx-3

2017 Mazda CX-3 Sport

Very fast, quickly accelerates, sleek design, the anterior is very visually pleasing. The engine runs very smooth but has a slightly loud noise. The gas tank holds only 10 gallons but the street mpg is 29 and the highway mpg is 32 so you're still getting a lot of mileage for a smaller gas tank.

- Anna B

The "sport" feature while driving.

2017 Mazda CX-3

I love how smooth it is and the "sport" option. I also love the feel of the car, how it handles, and the dash. I have never had any issues with the car, in terms of malfunctions. The backup camera is great and helpful during parking, as well. I have driven long distances with it and love it.

- Kelsey A

Mazda is a car of the gods.

2017 Mazda CX-3

Purchasing the Mazda I have now, was the best car purchase ever made. It is great in gas mileage as well as being able to speed up quickly but be able to stop very fast if needed. The car dealership was also very helpful in making the purchase of the car and it was the best fit for me.

- Morgan S

Mazda CX-3 personal review

2017 Mazda CX-3 Sport

Gas mileage could be better for the size of the car that it is. Not as fun to drive as other Mazdas, but it looks cool. The center console buttons are in a weird spot. It isn't meant for hauling a lot of people or stuff, but it works as a commuting vehicle for small people and numbers.

- Hannah M

My Mazda is a mighty fine vehicle.

2017 Mazda CX-3

My car is compact but sporty. I get excellent gas mileage. It hugs the road when driving and has many safety features. There is plenty of interior leg room along with comfortable seats. All wheel drive has been very reliable during winter months. Entertainment system is top notch.

- Jamie L

Side mirrors, and backup camera.

2017 Mazda CX-3

I have had my Mazda for about a year now, and have now problems. I love the size, comfort, miles per gallon, and the back-up camera is key! This is the third Mazda product that I have owned, and time-after-time, I have never had a problem. Reliability and quality are undeniable.

- Cheryl L

Technology in the car is convenient and simple. Engine of the car runs well.

2017 Mazda CX-3

I really love it and there is not anything I'd complain about. It is simple but has extras that are convenient. It runs really smooth and I have no problems with the engine. It is super comfortable to sit in and it has a lot of room in the car to store stuff and or travel with.

- Sunshine C

The Mazda cx-3 overall is a great car if you do not have a family.

2017 Mazda CX-3

This vehicle is too small for any practical use. It is just a driver and for small errands. Aside from the size the fuel efficiency is great. I am averaging 29. 4 miles per gallon but usually I am getting between 32-34 on the highway. Living in a big city kind of kills the mpg.

- Michael B

Sports car handling at a reasonable price.

2017 Mazda CX-3

The car is easy to drive and reliable. Gas mileage is slightly less than advertised. Plenty of room for 2 dogs. The entertainment system is great and easy to navigate and sound quality is good. The radar assisted cruise control keeps vehicle a safe distance from other cars.

- Janet B

Mazda cx 3 dream car for ex soccer mom.

2017 Mazda CX-3

It is reliable, has had no service issues, it handles so well, both with pickup tight turns reverse and sort mode. It is a nice shade of red, has a sun or moon roof which makes it so nice in all seasons. It is the perfect for handling even in the snow, its grey car.

- Dee M

Small but mighty Mazda cx 3.

2017 Mazda CX-3

Fun to drive, good gas mileage, plenty of driver leg room, lots of safety features, communication system easy to use, comfortable seats, AWD reliable in snow, moonroof, Bose stereo system, hugs the road when taking curves, blind side driver system, closed trunk lift.

- Jamie K

my awesome 2017 Mazda Cx-3

2017 Mazda CX-3 Touring

great car only drawback is the tight space in the back seats ( not much leg room especially if you're 5'10 and over). the trunk size is also pretty small, you can fit one or two decent size boxes but that's about it. A full size suit case can't fit in the trunk fyi.

- joel K

The most style and the best driving you will find.

2017 Mazda CX-3 Grand Touring

There are no problems. This is a great car. It is comfortable and drives like a dream. Incredible steering. Good gas mileage. The cargo space is smaller than some others but it is enough for what I. Usually need. Really fun to drive. Highly recommended.

- Rhonda A

Very comfortable, drives with ease. Handles well in the winter and rainy months.

2017 Mazda CX-3 Sport

I love my car, I drive a lot so I love the GPS system, my car is fully loaded and it drives with ease. I have no complaints it's very comfortable I feel safe in it. I live where they have brutal winter weather and my car handle very well in the winter.

- Melody H

Cx3 pros and cons mostly pros

2017 Mazda CX-3

I love my car great gas mileage, easy to drive easy to park. Rear view camera. There are two downsides small cargo area and bad blind spot. The cargo area is a trade off for gas mileage. If I were to purchase again I might go with the CX 5

- Jill R

It is a good buy for the money. Provides all the comforts of a luxury car at a great price.

2017 Mazda CX-3

The Mazda Cx-3 is the perfect size, allowing me to find ample street parking. It is good on gas. The body is well made,mane even allows for minor accidents with absolutely no marks left behind. Overall it is a very enjoyable car to drive.

- Jane M

its sleek and modern and an efficient vehicle. Even the basic features are pretty 'fancy'.

2017 Mazda CX-3

I like that it has usb ports, and that it has blind spot warnings. I do not like that the windows slant upwards and are slightly smaller than normal- if your checking your blind spots the normal way it's very easy to miss seeing a car.

- Sofia B

Great for snow! We have driven through a blizzard with over a foot of snow on the road and this car was fantastic!

2017 Mazda CX-3

Great performance and have not had any issues with this car! Love that it has 4 wheel drive and is low to the ground for great handling. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the station wagon type look.

- Stephanie C

It is fun to drive and has one of the best exterior of It's class.

2017 Mazda CX-3

I like the styling of both exterior and interior of the vehicle. I also like It's gas mileage. Only thing I dislike is that the trunk space could be a bit bigger.

- Guann d

Affordable and of high quality.

2017 Mazda CX-3

I like all of the standard features that the car comes with. Great quality for an affordable price! I get great gas mileage. There is plenty of room for cargo.

- Taylor T

I like that my vehicle has leather interior and a backup camera. I also feel slightly higher driving since it is a crossover and elevated in the air. It so far has run perfectly and has wonderful features involved. The only thing I haven't enjoyed is that Mazda isn't fully Apple friendly, and not all of the features connect with my phone.

2017 Mazda CX-3

It's very new to me and Mazda makes very well run cars. I haven't had any issues currently with this car and would recommend the make to everyone.

- Alexis G

- Marcia J

that it has awd so i am not worried about weather conditions before I set out

2017 Mazda CX-3

I really like the size and that it is awd and gets good gas mileage. I wish I would have paid extra for tinted windows.

- Richard P

It can load lots of items by lowering the seats

2017 Mazda CX-3

I like that it is compact. I really enjoy how the seats come down so I can transport bigger items. I also like the mpg.

- Christian B

It gets great gas mileage but it isn't spacious for tall people.
