2018 Mazda CX-3: For the Love of Driving

Mazda is a brand that takes itself seriously when it comes to fun. Mazda vehicles across the board don't sacrifice joyful driving dynamics for practicality, and they somehow manage to bring both together into one harmonious package. If you love to drive, you need to explore the 2018 Mazda CX-3. (If you don't love to drive, you just might change your tune after you've taken one for a spin.)

The CX-3 is a subcompact crossover, and its small size lends itself to that easy-handling, quick-responding, corner-taking verve on the road. It also gets excellent fuel economy.

The 2018 CX-3 introduces G-Vectoring Control, which improves cornering stability, as well as a tweaked suspension. Other changes include thicker glass and improved door seals to minimize cabin noise, and a newly standard low-speed automated emergency braking system.

There are three trims in the 2018 CX-3 lineup-the Sport, the Touring, and the Grand Touring. With even the base model offering such desirable features as a Mazda Connect infotainment system, Bluetooth capability, push-button start, and a host of safety systems, you can hardly go wrong with any one of the three trims.

But we understand if you can't make up your mind based on lists alone, and we have the perfect solution: Come to Berglund Mazda and get up close and personal with our incredible inventory of Mazda vehicles. That firsthand experience may be just what it takes to help you narrow your options or make your choice, and our friendly associates at Berglund Mazda can't wait to walk you through the remainder of the process. We're committed to finding you the right car at the right price, so get in touch with us today!


A Glimpse into the 2018 Mazda CX-3's Interior

The CX-3 seats five and has a finely appointed cabin that looks and feels comfortable and upscale. The clean design makes for a simple but aesthetically pleasing dashboard, where most controls are integrated into the 7-inch infotainment display.

Standard interior features include a six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth integration, an automatic emergency braking system, and a rearview camera. Optional upgrades include automatic climate control, a moonroof, and a navigation system, among many others.

The premium quality of the interior has been described by some reviewers as near-luxury grade, and we would have to agree. And as it should be in a vehicle that loves to drive like this one does, there is an abundance of advanced safety features to keep the driver confident and the passengers protected.

Exterior Paint Color Options on the 2018 Mazda CX-3

The 2018 CX-3 looks every bit the part of the fun-loving, sporty, energetic subcompact crossover, and it draws a lot of attention on the road despite its diminutive size. A lineup of bright, eye-catching exterior paint colors is available for 2018 CX-3 models: Soul Red Metallic, Snowflake White Pearl Mica, Machine Gray Metallic, Ceramic Metallic, Titanium Flash Mica, Deep Crystal Blue Mica, Eternal Blue Mica, and Jet Black Mica.

On the Performance of the 2018 Mazda CX-3

The source of those vivacious driving dynamics is found under the hood of the three CX-3 trims. The Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring trims all feature a 146-hp, SKYACTIV-G 2.0L 4-cylinder engine with a SKYACTIVE-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission. This combo is capable of 146 hp and 146 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is available for all three trims.
