2018 Mazda CX-3 Mazda Dealers from Sahara Ave. To Henderson Love It

The 2018 Mazda CX-3’s sharp handling and strong fuel economy make it a highly recommended compact crossover. It’s also one of the best values in the segment. According to the Sahara Ave. Mazda dealer, Mazda’s helpful Smart City Brake Support system now comes standard throughout the lineup. Excellent crash-test scores take the CX-3's appeal to the next level. You'll have three trims to choose from: Sport, Touring and Grand Touring.

All three trims are powered by a 2.0-liter SkyActiv four-cylinder engine that generates 146 horsepower and 146 lb.-ft. of torque. A quick-shifting, six-speed automatic transmission enhances the CX-3’s sportiness. While the standard front-wheel-drive system will suit the needs of most drivers, the optional i-Activ AWD system immediately responds to slippery road conditions. A fuel-efficient design gives you yet another reason to like the new CX-3. While FWD models are rated by the EPA to return a combined 31 mpg, the AWD CX-3 delivers a combined 29 mpg.*

Automotive journalists continue to rave about the CX-3’s responsive driving dynamics. The crossover’s precise steering and nimble handling enable you to feel in complete control. Activating the Sport mode gives the CX-3 an additional fun factor.

The Mazda CX-3 Is Turns Heads on Sahara Ave

The 2018 Mazda CX-3 is easily among the most eye-catching compact crossovers on the market. An athletic stance and curvaceous body give it the look of a far more expensive model. While even the base CX-3 boasts twin exhaust tips and a rear roof spoiler, a larger set of 18-inch alloy wheels come equipped on higher trim levels. A total of eight paint finishes are available, including Soul Red Metallic and Snowflake White Pearl Mica.

The 2018 Mazda CX-3’s sporty theme continues on the inside. Race-inspired gauges and a three-spoke steering wheel create a sense of driving excitement. The interior controls are simple to use, which helps you to remain focused on the task of driving. Only a few rivals come close to matching the CX-3’s quality. Edmunds gives the CX-3 top marks for its well-designed front seats, which deliver just the right blend of comfort and support.

Even if you stick with the base Sport trim, you’ll be rewarded with an attractive number of features. A multi-function controller makes it easy to scroll through the standard 7.0-inch touchscreen. Some of the other standard goodies include a backup camera, push-button start, and Bluetooth connectivity. While a seven-speaker Bose sound system is optional on the mid-level Touring trim, it comes standard on the luxurious Grand Touring model. The available traffic sign recognition system can help prevent costly speeding tickets.

In addition to its five-star safety rating, the 2018 Mazda CX-3 was also chosen as a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS. Furthermore, Mazda offers several advanced driving aids. When traveling on busy city streets, the standard low-speed automatic braking system helps lower your stress levels. Available on the Touring and Grand Touring trims, blind-spot monitoring alerts you to oncoming vehicles in the next lane. Adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and high-speed collision braking are optional on the CX-3 Grand Touring.
