2017 Mazda CX-3 Grand Touring AWD

I think Mazda has quickly become one of my favorite car brands. They are affordable and packed full of features that you'd expect to pay a lot more for. They are roomy, have zoom zoom (that is their motto after all), and get decent gas mileage. 

If you're in the market for a nice little crossover, then I highly recommend the Mazda CX-3.

The 2017 Mazda CX-3 seats 5 passengers and gets 27/32 mpg, making it the perfect little family crossover. And it's even more perfect for traveling with it's mileage.

The dashboard and steering wheel mounted controls are one of my favorite parts about this Mazda CX-3. The whole crossover is so sleek and I really loved testing it for a week.

 Heads up display shows on the windshield, to keep your eyes focused on the road.

 I've really come to know the Mazda's for their simple screens. Nothing excessive at all.

I fell in LOVE with the 2 toned leather/suede throughout the trim as well as the suede on the seats. It gave it a really sporty look.

For such a small little crossover, it had a lot of rear leg room.

 Cupholders for 2nd row were in the door.

Lots of trunk space with the seats up and down.

Lastly was the Sunroof

The Mazda CX-3 has some of my favorite features like the Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. It also has Dynamic Stability Control and Roll Stability Control and Traction Control System which helps prevent wheelspin and helps you gain traction. Tire Pressure Monitoring System and more!

Mazda’s i-ACTIVSENSE advanced safety technologies, which use sensing devices such as milliwave radar help identify potential risks early on and reduce any chance of damage or injury

Of course the CX-3 features Mazda's SKYACTIV Technology, which helps you achieve higher gas mileage and makes the vehicle drive smoother. 

And it of course featured the Push Button start that I'm in love with!! Means I can leave my keys in my purse, Get in and start the vehicle with ease.

The Mazda CX-3 has 3 models. Sport starting at $19,960 Touring starting at $21,960 and the Grand Touring (that I received) starting at $24,990. The one I received had a sticker price of $28.810. It was the Grand Touring AWD

Mazda has a 3 year/36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty (also includes 24/7 roadside assistance) and a 5 year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty

I absolutely loved this Dynamic Blue Mica

*Disclaimer, I received a Mazda CX-3 for a 1 week test drive. All opinions here are 100% my own and I was not compensated to write this post, other than receiving the vehicle

Great review. I just purchased a Mazda CX5 and I just love it.
Basically the same as the CX3 only a little larger and you are right they are quick.
