Mazda 3 Liftback

High equipment and safety levels

Engine is not only powerful but fun to drive and efficient

Mazda CX-3

Going by the recent trends of modern designing, the Mazda CX-3 looks quite attractive by the way it looks. The sleek front end styling with full LED headlamps and wide front grille as well as the aerodynamic side profile with smooth grooves give it an eye-catching stance.

The Mazda CX-3 exhibits brilliant levels of fit and finish and strong build quality, which gives it an edge over other cars in a similar price range. The strong thud from the doors as well as soft-touch plastics do give the Mazda CX-3 a premium feel of vehicles from one or two segments above.

The Mazda CX-3 is right now the safest SUV in its category, with its list of safety features being the longest of them all. The Mazda CX-3 is impressive with the presence of features like six airbags, ABS with EBD and Brake Assist, Dynamic Stability Control, Emergency Brake Assist, Traction Control, Hill Launch Assist, front and rear parking sensors, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Blind Spot Monitoring System.

Mazda CX-3

For a premium midsize SUV, the Mazda CX-3, despite having a striking road presence from the outside, doesn’t have an eye-catching interior design. The dashboard looks way too simple with minimalist center console and not so attractive instrument console makes it look a bit drab.

Since the Mazda CX-3 has a curvy design, it results in a lesser practical cabin. Due to the sloping roofline, the headroom is at a premium, while the shoulder room too isn’t that great.

For an SUV, the Mazda CX-3 sits a bit low, which doesn’t give it a road presence of a traditional SUV. The ground clearance of the Mazda CX-3 too is lesser as compared to other SUVs.
