CX AND THE CITY (new2) 20/03/2015

Mazda's dinky CX-3 is a compact urban small SUV that's been much improved. Jonathan Crouch reports.

Ten Second Review

Mazda's appealing little CX-3 was designed to condense all the best bits of the larger CX-5 into a smaller package. Now, it gets a smarter interior, updated technology and the option of a new 1.8-litre SKYACTIV-D diesel engine. As before, it comes in front or all-wheel drive, and is offered in a line-up primarily built around petrol power. It's also light and it's good looking, with a chunky equipment list and reasonable pricing. What more could you ask for?


These days, if you're a car maker and design a supermini, then you really have to create a small Crossover from it too. You know, one of those small Nissan Juke-style models that offer extra attitude, a bit more usability, a higher ride height and something of an SUV feel. The market's full of them, this being Mazda's contender, the CX-3. Here's a model very much in tune with this Japanese brand's current vision for automotive design - it's so-called 'SKYACTIV' philosophy that's all about creating cars that are light, efficient, pretty and, above all else, fun to drive. In the metal, it looks an energetic little thing and over the years, we've found that it drives that way too thanks to willing SKYACTIV engines and light underpinnings that are carried over from the little Mazda2 this model's based upon. All this car really needed when it came to the mid-term wash 'n brush-up was a little extra safety and infotainment technology, plus a more class-competitive diesel option. All this features within the revised model range we're going to look at here.

Driving Experience

Like most crossovers in this class, the CX-3 is offered with a choice of front or all-wheel drive chassis, and petrol and diesel engines. The petrol engines comprise 121 or 150PS 2.0-litre units which together will account for most UK sales. Available in all trims, with both manual and automatic transmissions, the 120PS powerplant with front-wheel drive is sure to remain the most popular petrol variant. The 150PS petrol unit is mated to an all-wheel drive chassis and a six-speed manual gearbox in Sport Nav+ trim. The key change here is the replacement of the previous 105PS 1.5-litre diesel engine with a 1.8-litre 115PS unit that adopts rapid multi-stage combustion, with new egg-shaped pistons that combine with ultra-high response multi-hole piezo injectors to increase combustion efficiency. As before, the diesel CX-3 can only be had with 2WD and manual transmission. Mazda's SKYACTIV design ethos continues to be key across the line-up, stripping unnecessary weight out of the engines, body, chassis and transmissions. While this sometimes means that road noise is a little higher than some rivals, huge paybacks come in sharper handling, stronger braking, keener acceleration and better efficiency. We mentioned refinement. Mazda has tried to improve that with this revised model with upgraded door sill trims, thicker sound isolation in the doors, enhanced rear glazing and an increase in the cabin headliner thickness. To meet the required focus on the driver engagement you'd expect from Mazda, new coil springs and dampers have been fitted, while the front anti-roll bar has also been changed. Combined with a recalibration of the electric power steering, the end result is more consistent weight transfer and improved shock absorption.

Design and Build

This remains on of the better-looking compact crossovers out there. All too often, cars in this class look gawky, too stubby, too tall and too narrow, with strange, hall of mirrors dimensions. Somehow the CX-3 just looks right, thanks to its cab-back body and long bonnet proportioning. The predatory headlights are anything but cutesy and the coupe-like roofline gives it a real sporting stance. For this revised model, there's s marter front grille, while darker side pillar treatment enhances the sweeping coupe-like profile. Mazda's signature Soul Red Crystal Metallic paint is also now available too. However, it's inside that customers will notice the biggest revisions, with a more comfortable, ergonomic and upmarket interior. Redesigned around the adoption of an electric parking brake, the centre console now flows more elegantly into the dashboard, while the Mazda Multimedia Commander has moved forward for improved usability. Comfort and functionality has also been improved with a padded armrest with console storage box underneath. The front seats benefit from use of high-damping urethane foam cushions that improve comfort and support, while the rear seats now feature a central armrest with built in cup holders. Out back, as before, there's a 350-litre boot with a flexible cargo board boot floor, which can be lifted to provide a flat load space when the standard 60:40 split fold rear seats are tumbled.

Market and Model

Prices start at around £19,000 and top out at around £25,000. The entry-level 'SE Nav+' models get 16-inch alloy wheels, plus heated and power folding mirrors, while 'SE-L Nav+' models add rear privacy glass and front LED fog lights. At the top of the range, the CX-3 'Sport Nav+' is one of the first cars in the class to come with LED headlights. With LED rear lights,18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels and chrome accent door sills it's sharp looker. All models get a 7-inch colour touchscreen, cruise control, DAB radio, Bluetooth and a multifunction steering wheel, while 'Sport Nav+' models also feature navigation with 3-years free European map updates, a reversing camera, Bose surround sound, smart keyless entry and a head-up display. Choose an 'SE-L Nav+' model and you'll find heated front seats, rear parking sensors, automatic climate control and rain-sensing wipers. There's a full complement of airbags, including curtain bags. Hill Hold Assist, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System and Dynamic Stability Control are standard across the range, while 'SE-L Nav+' and 'Sport Nav+' models feature Mazda's Lane Departure Warning System and Smart City Brake Support.

Cost of Ownership

Mazda's almost fanatical devotion to stripping unnecessary weight out of its cars means that although many of its cars look pretty substantial, they can weigh as much as a car in the next class down. This has all sorts of beneficial effects, not only in terms of vehicle dynamics but also when it comes to efficiency. Case in point: the CX-3 front-wheel drive diesel variant. With emissions of just 114g/km, this model should regularly be able to return well over 60mpg. That's what many would expect from a tiny citycar rather than a crossover that can seat five. The 121PS petrol engine puts out around 140g/km of CO2, while the 150PS petrol unit manages 160g/km - or 152g/km in auto form. Just like the CX-5, residual figures have proved to be healthy. Insurance figures are also going to be reasonable as, thanks to that light weight, you get respectable performance without having the sort of horsepower figures that make insurance companies nervous.

All About Safety



A small Crossover needs to be more than just dynamic and frugal, with stylish cleverness an equally important attribute. This one seems to stack up well here, with pleasing looks, cutting edge safety electronics and the kind of interior infotainment cleverness you'd normally find only on a much more expensive car of this kind. Yes, there's a price to pay for all this attention to detail, one that may mean you having to stretch our budget a little further than you might have expected to for a car of this kind. We think this CX-3 is good enough to justify that though. It's not the most obvious class contender you could choose but it's undeniably, a very complete one.

THREE'S COMPANY (family) 17/09/2018

Mazda's CX-3 is a pleasing little compact SUV. June Neary bonded with it.

Will It Suit Me?

If you're looking for a small, supermini-based Crossover SUV these days, you're not short of choice. This week though, I thought I'd try one which may not be on your radar, Mazda's CX-3. It's cleverer, faster, more stylish and better to drive than most cars of the Juke-genre. For other brands entering this segment, it's an example of how it should be done.


I thought the CX-3 to be one of the most stylish of the current crop of 'B'-segment small SUVs. Get up close and personal for example, and you notice just how much more steeply raked its front A-pillars are than those of, say, a rival Nissan Juke or Renault Captur. Hence the more dynamic look emphasised by a sweeping bonnet that flows into a prominent three-dimensional grille. This is linked to the 'predator'-style headlights by chromed wings passing through lamps that on the top version are lit by jewel-like LEDs. Behind the wheel it's obvious just how much of this design is derived from the little Mazda2. Everything around you is familiar from that little supermini but the key difference with this CX-3 is this Crossover model's 50mm-higher driver's eyeline, delivering the loftier driving position and better all-round visibility that customers in this segment expect. For me though, it's the seats that are most important, height-adjustable and carefully designed for excellent support. In short, getting comfortable in this Mazda is as easy as you could ever imagine it would be in a car of this diminutive size. As for the back seat, well the steeply rising waistline and small side windows aren't ideal in combating claustrophobia but in compensation, the seats in the rear have been set 37mm higher than those at the front. That gives back seat folk a better view out, though taller occupants will be brushing their heads against the ceiling as a consequence. And the boot? Well you've quite a high loading lip to negotiate to get your stuff into it, but once you have, the 1,000mm loadbay width means you get 95-litres more room than you'd find in a Mazda2. Plus you can also make better use of the space thanks to this standard flexible cargo board boot floor, one of those you can re-position at different heights to suit the kind of load you want to carry. In its lowest position, there's room for a couple of decently-sized 67cm suitcases. Put the board in its highest position though and you can create a fully-flat load space when you push forward the 60:40 split-folding rear bench to free up 1,260-litres of total fresh air.

Behind the Wheel

I enjoyed my driving in the CX-3. Mazda's SKYACTIV chassis technology has made this car light and agile. As a result, it's as happy as a golden retriever puppy when the roads get twisty. The extra performance of the SKYATIV-G petrol engine lets you enjoy that to the full too. At 2.0-litres in size, offering a choice of either 120 or 150PS, it's a larger and more powerful unit than you might expect to find in a car of this size but the payoff is performance on another level from most rivals. The 105PS 1.5-litre SKYACTIV-D diesel that I tried was quite as peppy but it still proved energetic enough to allow me to enjoy myself. The ride quality's quite firm, but refinement's good enough to make longer trips possible.

Value For Money

This CX-3 is designed to compete with smaller Crossover models like Nissan's Juke and Renault's Captur but, like many of the recent arrivals in this segment, it's been priced at a level that could easily see you paying the kind of money you might earmark for a slightly larger family-sized Crossover - say a car like Nissan's Qashqai. To be specific, you're looking at paying somewhere in the £18,500 to £25,000 bracket for this little Mazda, which slots it into the Japanese brand's line-up very neatly. You'd need a premium of about £4,000 to upgrade from a Mazda2 supermini to a directly comparable version of this CX-3. And CX-3 money pitches this car in about £4,000 below the kind of cash you'd have to find for the company's larger CX-5 Crossover model. At least the CX-3 buying proposition is fairly simple, with the range based around two key engines. Mazda reckons that over 60% of sales will be accounted for by a 2.0-litre SKYACTIVE-G petrol unit that almost all buyers will order with 120PS - though it can also put out 150PS in flagship guise. Alternatively, there's the slightly less powerful 105PS 1.5-litre SKYACTIVE-D diesel variant that sells at a model-for-model premium of around £1,400 over its green pump-fuelled counterpart. In both cases, the option of all-wheel drive is limited to the most expensive version. If you want an automatic gearbox and need it mated to diesel power, you'll have to stretch to the top 4x4 variant. In the petrol CX-3 line-up though, there's an auto transmission option available across the range for a premium of £1,200.

Could I Live With One?

If you're shopping in this segment, I think the CX-3 ought to be prominently on your list of cars to try. It's one of the more expensive models in the category, but Mazda's SKYACTIV cleverness has kept this SUV acceptably efficient and agile, plus you get plenty of kit for your cash. A small Crossover needs to be more than just dynamic, frugal and well equipped though, with stylish cleverness an equally important attribute. This one seems to stack up well here too, with pleasing looks, cutting edge safety electronics and the kind of interior infotainment cleverness you'd normally find only on a much more expensive car of this kind.
