2018 Mazda CX-3: Features & Performance

Explore the New 2018 Mazda CX-3 in Norwood, MA

If you're looking for an affordable, upscale, fun-to-drive subcompact SUV, you'll find that the 2018 Mazda CX-3 stands out thanks to its artful design, dynamic driving manners, and sophisticated interior. The CX-3 boasts excellent handling and responsive steering, making it a true joy to drive and not just a way to get from point A to point B. With plenty of technology to accompany its spirited performance, the CX-3 is a marvelous choice for drivers who are on the hunt for a small, elegant SUV that packs a punch.

The Mazda CX-3 comes in three different trim levels including the Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring trims. You'll discover the same potent 2.0L four-cylinder engine coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission on each model. The base Sport trim offers a variety of sought-after standard features such as push-button start, Bluetooth, and Smart City Brake Support System, but the upper trims add more features to an already well-equipped vehicle to cater to your comfort and convenience.


The Mazda CX-3 is a splendid example of the automaker's KODO: Soul of Motion design philosophy. With a sculpted, elegantly-contoured exterior and athletic, grounded stance, the CX-3 expresses a sense of motion even while at rest. The energy that the CX-3 communicates through its design language flows into its handling and performance, ensuring a thrilling driving experience with a vehicle that turns corners as easily as it turns heads.

The CX-3 comes standard with 16-inch alloy wheels and halogen headlights, but 18-inch alloy wheels and LED lighting are available on upper trims.


Inside, the CX-3 is equally stunning. High-quality materials abound throughout the upscale cabin, helping to ensure that you and your passengers stay comfortable during every ride. Mazda's goal is to inspire drivers to want to get behind the wheel rather than view driving simply as a means to an end, and the CX-3 gracefully embodies the automaker's dedication. Rivals struggle to keep up when it comes to the CX-3's level of interior sophistication.

With a thoughtfully laid out, driver-centric interior that features intuitive controls and available upscale features like a sunroof, leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, and more, the CX-3 is crafted to appeal to the senses and invite you to enjoy a comfortable, connected driving experience at a price that urges the competition to keep up.


All CX-3 models draw strength from a 146-horsepower 2.0L four-cylinder engine that supplies up to 146 pound-feet of torque. Spirited and efficient, the CX-3 offers an added element of exhilaration to your daily drive without demanding too much from you at the pump. Front-wheel drive comes standard, but you can opt for the i-ACTIV AWD® all-wheel drive system if you want to take advantage of the edge it grants on slippery roads near the Natick, MA area.

Mazda models are also known for their agile, exciting handling, and the CX-3 is no exception. SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control helps you enjoy a smoother ride by shifting vehicle weight and power delivery to help the CX-3 cut back on fatigue and perform at its best. This technology provides subtle, yet crucial adjustments to enhance your experience behind the wheel.

Technology and Safety

The new CX-3 offers a wide variety of technology features that are designed to keep you and your passengers comfortable, secure, and entertained. A 7-inch touchscreen, USB port, available seven-speaker Bose sound system, and more work to help you access your favorite apps, keep your devices charged, and crank up your soundtrack as you take command of the roads around Wellesley and Quincy.

Safety features like the Smart City Brake Support System, available blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, and more help to provide a little added peace of mind as you maneuver around town or winding roads.
