Henderson Area Mazda Dealers Take A First Look at the 2017 Mazda CX-3

If you’re looking for a subcompact crossover that features class-leading performance, sporty handling and is fun to drive, look no further than the 2017 Mazda CX-3. With high-quality materials, attractive styling and a low base price at dealerships like the Henderson Mazda Dealer, you’d be hard-pressed to come up with a reason not to buy the CX-3.

If you’re still on the fence, consider the fact that the 2017 Mazda CX-3 also features best-in-class fuel economy. Its light curb weight and efficient engine unite to provide EPA-estimated fuel economy of 31 mpg combined.* Even all-wheel-drive models deliver excellent EPA ratings of 29 mpg. Technophiles will love the Mazda CX-3’s tech features, which include a standard touchscreen for the infotainment system and available advanced safety equipment on the upper Grand Touring model.

Consumers appreciate the CX-3’s handsome exterior styling, and the demanding automotive press agrees. The Car Connection wrote: “The CX-3 approaches minimalism without being boring: its flowing, sinewy forms and slightly complex forms envelop the surface, arch and join, flare and recede. The overall effect is sporty and athletic, light and elegant. At the risk of being flowery, it's a breath of fresh air for small SUVs.”
