Mazda CX-3

(2015 - present)

The Mazda CX-3 is a compact SUV/crossover, the smallest in the Mazda SUV family. It was unveiled in late 2014 before going on sale in the UK in the summer of 2015. An updated model arrived in the summer of 2018.

The CX-3 has earned generally positive reviews from the UK motoring media, with an overall Expert Rating that is one of the highest in its class – albeit some way behind the scores set by the class-leading Volkswagen T-Cross and T-Roc.

The Mazda CX-3 has received particular praise for its styling, driving dynamics and real-world fuel economy; however, it has been criticised for being more expensive than many rivals and for its relatively high emissions levels.
