2018 Mazda CX-3
When you get behind the wheel of the 2018 Mazda CX-3, it’s hard not to be impressed. This subcompact crossover combines a spirited powertrain with a premium-level interior to make it a well-rounded family vehicle. For a daily driver that is both fun to drive and practical, look no further than the 2018 CX-3.
The 2018 Mazda CX-3 is available at three trim levels: Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring. Each trim comes standard with front-wheel drive, though an all-wheel-drive system is also available.
Powertrain & Performance
No matter the trim level you choose, you will find a single powertrain option under the hood. This engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. It puts out 146 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque, which contributes to the CX-3’s fun driving dynamics.
With this powertrain, the EPA-estimated fuel efficiency for a front-wheel-drive model is 29 mpg city and 34 mpg highway.* This drops slightly for all-wheel-drive models to 27 mpg city and 32 mpg highway.*
Inside the CX-3 subcompact crossover, you will find a cabin that is both well-built and well-appointed. Even on the base Sport trim, it feels upscale – a feeling that only grows when you step into the top-of-the-line Grand Touring.
Behind the rear seat, you will find 12 cubic feet of cargo storage, which grows to 45 cubic feet when the rear seats are down. This offers an abundance of space to haul whatever it is you need, whether you’re moving the kids to college or simply looking to mulch your garden.

The infotainment system can be accessed through a 7-inch, full-color touchscreen display, allowing you to access audio and Bluetooth® features.
