Many people are looking for a quality compact crossover these days, with really no end in sight for this trend. If you’re searching for an excellent option, know that the 2019 Mazda CX-3 has plenty to offer. Just at a glance, there’s no denying this vehicle is both unique and incredibly attractive. That simple design with nice, clean lines continues to the interior. According to the Henderson Mazda Dealership, this means as the driver, you’re not overwhelmed with too many knobs, switches and instruments. It’s a better way to stay calm as you commute, hit the road for weekend fun, or head out on a long vacation.
Unlike other compact crossovers, the Mazda CX-3 is a blast to drive anywhere. Tight suspension, crisp steering, and a low center of gravity means it absolutely hugs turns in the road. Customers who bought a Mazda in Henderson report that the automaker worked hard to make this vehicle fuel efficient, so they spend less time and money at the pump. At the same time the interior feels premium, and cool technologies abound.
Of course, big automotive publications are noticing the Mazda CX-3 and what it offers. When talking about small crossovers, Edmunds says “the 2019 Mazda CX-3 is a standout for its evocative exterior design and sporty driving dynamics.”
The 2019 Mazda CX-3 comes in three high-quality trim levels: Sport, Touring and Grand Touring. Each one is a great choice, thanks in part to the Skyactiv-G 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine which is standard for all three. That means at your command is 148 horsepower and 146 lb.-ft. of torque, so this crossover can really get moving when necessary. A six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive are standard, making for a smooth ride. You can upgrade to i-Activ all-wheel drive, boosting handling at any speed.
Even at the base trim, the Mazda CX-3 Sport comes with a comprehensive array of features you’ll appreciate from day one. Clear-lens halogen headlights show the way ahead with clarity, plus they shut off automatically. You also benefit from a rear window defogger with timer, electronic parking brake with auto-hold function, rear heater ducts, a remote keyless illuminated entry system, a rear center armrest, 60/40 split-folding backseats, an ambient temperature display, a rearview camera, hill launch assist, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and Smart City Brake Support. Through the Mazda Connect infotainment system and its 7-inch touchscreen, you have access to a whole range of options like E911 automatic emergency notification and voice commands.
Get even more by selecting the Touring trim. It adds to the standard equipment for the CX-3 with automatic climate control, synthetic leather door trim, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and front seat heaters with three settings.
Of course, you’d expect the CX-3 Grand Touring trim to come with the most features. It really delivers, with goodies like LED headlights and fog lights, plus rain-sensing wipers, so seeing in all kinds of conditions comes easier. A power sliding-glass moonroof is a great way to let the sunshine and fresh air into the cabin. Other luxuries like leather upholstery and navigation are also included.
