The Mazda CX-3 is a subcompact SUV (B-segment in Europe) manufactured by the Japanese marque Mazda. This crossover is based on Mazda 2 / Demio‘s platform. It was introduced in 2015, so there is only one generation of this utility vehicle.

This crossover has different engine options. Unlike other manufacturers, Mazda uses 1.5 and 2-liter four-cylinder engines from the Skyactiv-G series. The most powerful develops 146 hp and 200 Nm of torque. There is also a 1.5-liter Skyactiv-D variant. The model was revised in 2019 with aesthetic improvements and more powerful engines.

The Mazda CX-3 competes with other crossovers such as the Opel Mokka, Peugeot 2008, Ford EcoSport or Toyota C-HR.
