2017 Mazda CX-3: Subcompact and Fun to Drive

As a subcompact SUV, the 2017 Mazda CX-3 is uniquely positioned to offer drivers an incredible range of benefits. Its small size makes it highly efficient so you can drive in anywhere in Virginia or beyond without worrying about how much money you will spend on gas. The compact design also makes the CX-3 highly maneuverable and ensures you can always squeeze into that parking spot. When thinking about purchasing a Mazda, you can always count on the latest features and luxuries.

Exterior Features of the 2017 Mazda CX-3

The Mazda CX-3 cuts a striking image with its well-balanced proportions and rich body contours. The blacked-out D-pillars and exceptionally short overhangs, complete its appeal at just a glance. The 2017 CX-3 showcases Mazda's KODO Soul of Motion design language, making it appear as if this subcompact SUV is always moving, even if it is actually parked. The headlamps fit within this design language perfectly, with a shape that is reminiscent of a predator's eyes. Every CX-3 model comes with a rear roofline spoiler, automatic-off headlights, daytime running lights, halogen headlights, and variable-intermittent windshield wipers. At the top of the lineup, you get a range of LED lights, including Daytime Running Lights, combination taillights, fog lights, and headlights featuring auto leveling.

2017 CX-3 Interior Features

The interior of the CX-3 is surprisingly spacious, particularly considering its small footprint. Everyone has room to stretch out and the overall feel is sporty yet refined, thanks to a range of unexpected combinations of fabrics and colors. When you sit behind the wheel, you will take advantage of the driver-centric design that puts everything you need within reach and gives you excellent visibility. The analog dials and full-color display give the dash a futuristic feel. You will also find small details throughout the CX-3, such as the specially engineered foot pedals, which are strategically placed to reduce foot fatigue no matter how long you drive.

Performance of 2017 Mazda CX-3

No matter what time of year or where the road takes you, the 2017 Mazda CX-3 will give you the confidence to tackle the driving conditions, particularly if you choose to configure it with smart, predictive i-ACTIV all-wheel drive. This system remains alert at all times, constantly monitoring conditions so it can adjust the power delivery to optimize traction - before the wheels slip. The engine in the CX-3 uses SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY to maximize driving dynamics while minimizing fuel consumption. The SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter engine has 146 horsepower and advanced direct injection. It is paired with the SKYACTIV-DRIVE transmission, a 6-speed automatic that gives you smoothness you want from an automatic with the direct feel you expect from a manual. Upgrading your CX-3 will give you leather trim and Lux Suede inserts on the seats, leather on the shift knob and steering wheel along with the parking brake, and Lux Suede door trim to pull the cabin together in style.
