Mazda CX-3 Pros & Cons

Get the better insight and helps to buy or not
Things we like in 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.

Things we don't like in 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.

Recent Updates of CX-3

Mazda has introduced a new, 1.5-liter 2WD Core variant to the current lineup of the CX-3 available in Malaysia. The updated Mazda CX-3 debuted in Malaysia in October 2022. The already existing 2.0-liter High version was updated in March this year. That Mazda was looking to expand the CX-3 lineup was in the news for a while. The company had hinted about the new powertrain on its Malaysia website. The entry-level 1.5-liter powertrain of course has a lower power and torque output. Both Core variants have the same level of equipment. Both come with Mazda’s G-Vectoring Control.

Mazda CX-3 Review 2023

Mazda is known for its beautifully designed cars. The body style or segment doesn’t matter, as all its vehicles follow Kodo design philosophy and are a treat to look at. Now, most of Mazda’s cars are based on an existing model, for instance, it’ll take an existing hatchback platform and converting it to a wagon or an SUV. And so is the case with the Mazda CX-3, it is based on the Mazda 2 hatchback platform with few changes, including raised height and a few distinguishing bits. It was launched in Malaysia in 2015 and was revised a few years back in 2018. All this while it has been in good stead throughout. The 2018 facelift not only made it more relevant to the new times and customers tastes but also enabled it to give tough competition to the rivals. Mazda recently introduced the CX-3 Limited Edition accessories package that included suede interior, JBL Basspro Hub 11-inch subwoofer, brushed aluminium sports pedals and scuff plates, unique carpets, front lip spoiler, rear bumper diffuser, gunmetal 18-inch alloys, and larger rear exhaust tips.

Mazda CX-3 Interior & Features

Mazda has taken a step-up in its built quality with the arrival of the CX-3. Earlier issues like panel gaps and hard plastic in the Mazda2 seem to be taken care of here. The subcompact crossover gets sofer plastic, though still not 100 percent satisfactory as the lower half of the dashboard feels a tad rough but again, that’s a spot one will hardly ever run through his/her hands. The driver’s arena gets a  3-spoke multi-functional steering wheel with the following controls - cruise control, telephone, and audio controls. The instrument cluster is designed as a 3-piece unit and provides the driver with all the necessary information. At the centre is present the tachometer and the range-topping trim gets a head-up display right in the driver’s line of sight. Synced to it are the blind spot indicator and traffic warning system - it provides real-time updates from the GPS-enabled navigation system. Besides, the MZD Connect system is slightly inclined towards the drive thanks to its floating centre stacked arrangement. One doesn’t have to take their eyes off the road to operate it. The rotary control is located right between the driver and co-driver space on the centre tunnel and is easy to operate. The MZD Connect system with a 7-inch infotainment system offers a crisp resolution but misses out on Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. There are six speakers present all around the car that offers decent sound quality. Further, enhancing the driver’s convenience is the keyless entry and start, automatic wipers, automatic air-con system, shift paddles, and electrically powered sunroof. Also, the driver’s seat is 10-way adjustable with memory function.

CX-3 Exterior

Talking first about the CX-3 dimensions, the subcompact crossover measures 4,275 mm in length, 1,765 mm in width, and 1,550 mm in height. The wheelbase reads 2,570 mm. 

Mazda’s Kodo design philosophy works wonder for all the brand’s car and so is the case with the CX-3. It is a car with sharp Japanese looks that’s hard to miss. At the front, is a stylish grille with double chrome slats, a full-LED headlight cluster along with the daytime running lights cut a familiar sight. The turn indicators sit lower down next to the fog lights, giving the front lower fascia some kind of presence of its own. At the side, it gets proper 18-inch alloy wheels shod in 215/50 tyres. Giving the crossover a beefy look is the black plastic cladding running all around. Also, the C-pillar stance giving the impression of a floating roof. The rear flaunts a stylish design like the rest of the car, the wrap-around light units at the back are LED and are inspired by the CX-5.

Mazda CX-3 Ride & Handling

Mazda CX-3 is a superb car to drive and it delivers amazing pleasure to the one behind the wheels. Part of its superb driving dynamics is MacPherson struts in the front and a torsion beam set up for the rear. The CX-3 handles corners very well and now with the added power of G-Vectoring, it stays planted with engine braking brought into the equation. The steering wheel is very communicative and helps understand what the front wheels are up to. That being said, we miss the all-wheel-drive option here, it is on offer in the Philippines.

Ride quality is a tad stiff, due to the superb handling prowess. Also, we believe that the inclusion of the auto brake hold would have been a nice touch to the deal as it eliminates the need to slot the gear in neutral and pull the handbrake. 

CX-3 Engine & Fuel Consumption

The CX-3 like the Mazda 2 is powered by a 2.0-litre direct injection SkyActiv petrol engine that makes a maximum power of 154 PS at 6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 204 Nm at 2,800 rpm. The power is sent to the front wheels via a 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters behind the wheels. If in a hurry or to get the right trill on can switch on to the Sport mode. The crossover covers 0 to 100 kmph distance in 8.8 seconds while the top speed is 194 kmph. In terms of fuel economy, it returns 13 kmpl in the city and 17 kmpl on the highway. The stop-start function is standard and helps with the fuel economy numbers as well.

Mazda CX-3 Braking & Safety

The Mazda CX-3 features a well-packed safety kit that includes six airbags, ABS, EBD with brake assist, Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Dynamic Stability Control, and ISOFIX rear child seat anchors. 

CX-3 Verdict

The CX-3 is a car for those who love to drive but want an elevated driving position and some amount of practicality dialed in. Priced at RM 138,337, it isn’t the most affordable crossover but packs in a lot more in terms of equipment.
