The 2019 Mazda CX-3 Proves Good Things Come in Small Packages
Six Reasons to Love The Sporty New 2019 Mazda CX-3
Don’t be fooled by its small stature, the 2019 Mazda CX-3 is a lot more than just the little car that could. For the 2019 refresh, Mazda has managed to jam pack their flagship subcompact crossover with even more impressive specs and exciting features. If you’re looking for a sporty fun-to-drive vehicle for the summer, the CX-3 definitely has you covered. With expert handling, impressive fuel economy and suave styling, there are many reasons to love Mazda’s mini-er SUV model. Here are just a few of the ways the 2019 Mazda CX-3 proves that bigger isn’t always better.
1. Sleek Style
Since its debut in 2016, the Mazda CX-3 has been touted for its stylish design. That part hasn’t changed. The 2019 Mazda CX-3 features an exceptionally sleek Kodo “Soul of Motion” design, which includes well-balanced proportions, interesting contours and a long sporty hood. What’s new on the 2019 is a refreshed front grille and rear combination lights. Add Mazda’s signature Soul Red Crystal Metallic paint and you’ll really emphasize every curve of this already stylish model.
2. Improved Engine
The Mazda CX-3 comes with a 2.0 litre, 4 cylinder engine that produces 148 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque. What’s new for the 2019 is a smoother overall performance. Though it might not seem like much, the CX-3 will hit 60 mph in 8.2 seconds, which is noticeably quicker than its competitors.
3. Expert Handling
The Mazda CX-3 features the predictive and intuitive i-Activ All-Wheel Drive. This combined with G-Vectoring Control helps create a feeling of connection between the car and the driver. You’ll feel confident and comfortable no matter what mother nature throws at you.
4. Impressive Fuel Economy
With rising gas prices, fuel efficiency is something you have to consider when buying a new car. The Mazda CX-3 GS model boasts a fuel rating of up to 6.9 litres per 100 kilometres of highway driving and opting for all-wheel driving only slightly changes this number.
5. Exciting Features
The CX-3’s infotainment system is designed with a multi-function dial control to help you stay focused. It features a 7 inch colour touchscreen display with Mazda Connect, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Keyless entry also comes standard. If you opt for a higher trim you’ll get even more exciting features, such as heated seats, door mirrors and steering wheel, rain-sensing front wipers, a navigation system and Bose premium sound system.
6. Superior Safety
The 2019 Mazda CX-3 comes with a number of standard safety features. Rear Cross Traffic Alert will warn you when a vehicle is approaching from the side. The adaptive front lights will improve your nighttime visibility. Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring will alert you to objects in your right or left blind spots. Forward Obstruction Warning will detect vehicles ahead and alert the driver anytime there’s risk of a collision. And finally, Smart Brake Support will alert the driver and apply brakes in the case of an impending collision.
It may be small, but it’s certainly mighty. The 2019 Mazda CX-3 gives drivers the best of both worlds, without feeling like a compromise. Whether you need to maneuver narrow city streets or want to head out on the open road, the CX-3 can take you where you want to go.
