2016 Mazda CX-3 red exteriorThe 2017 Mazda CX-3 Crossover has earned the distinction of “Best Crossover of the Year” from Chicago News. Despite competing against four other models, the CX-3 emerged victorious, thanks to its overall excellent value. According to Robert Davis, Senior Vice President Special Assignments and accepter of the award, the Mazda CX-3 “…is a perfect balance between style and substance with its beautiful design, upscale interior and all-weather utility.” Let’s take a closer look at the Mazda CX-3 and what sets it apart from others in its segment!

Fuel-Efficient Performance

Under the hood of the 2017 CX-3, you’ll find a SKYACTIV®-G 2.0L 4-cylinder engine with VVT rated at 146 hp and torque to match. For smooth, driver-focused handling, the power of the 2.0L is pushed through a SKYACTIV®-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission with two modes: manual-shift and Sport. This powertrain, coupled with front-wheel drive, results in an EPA-estimated 29 mpg city/35 mpg highway rating. With all-wheel drive, the CX-3 still astounds with an EPA-estimated 27 mpg city/32 mpg highway rating.

Premium Features

Starting at $19,960, the 2017 CX-3 offers plenty of comfort and technology features for your dollar. The five-passenger cabin comes equipped with cloth-trimmed sport seats, 60/40-split-folding rear seats, power windows and door locks, Push Button Start, remote keyless entry, and a tilt-and-telescopic steering column. Every CX-3 also sports the MAZDA CONNECT™ Infotainment System with a 7-inch touchscreen and Multifunction Commander Control. Interior niceties don’t end there; the following features are also available for the CX-3:

  • Internet radio integration (Aha, Pandora, and Stitcher)

  • SMS text message audio delivery and reply

  • Steering wheel-mounted audio, cruise, and phone controls
