2017 Mazda CX-3

If you want to go beyond what most expect from a 4-door subcompact crossover SUV, the clear choice is the 2017 Mazda CX-3. From first glance, you'll know this isn't just any car. Sleek lines, an athletic stance, and a look that's undeniably Mazda captivate any beholder. The crossover isn't all style and no substance because you also enjoy a functional and comfortable interior, the latest technologies, and engaging dynamics from behind the wheel.

Thrilling and Practical Performance

Just a few moments behind the wheel, and you'll agree that the Mazda CX-3 keeps things interesting. It boasts sporty performance, thanks in large part to the standard Skyactiv-G 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine. It produces a stout 146 horsepower and 146 lb.-ft. of torque, so getting up to speed in a hurry or passing on the highway takes little effort. Thanks to clever engineering, not only do you benefit from plenty of capability, the engine runs with amazing efficiency.

Mazda gives you the choice of making that engine with a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard.

Canadian winters can be intense, but i-Activ All-Wheel Drive will ensure you're prepared. Sensors monitor conditions such as windshield wiper use, exterior temperature, steering wheel angle, and braking activity at 200 times each second to determine where to send power. To keep response times even quicker, at least some torque goes to the rear wheels constantly.

You don't need to worry about consuming too much fuel. Mazda engineered i-Activ All-Wheel Drive to waste as little energy as possible, so you stop less often for fuel.

Cutting-Edge Technologies

With G-Vectoring Control, you can navigate through turns with more confidence. This advanced technology automatically adjusts engine torque. As a result, steering is more precise, and everyone enjoys greater levels of comfort.

Even more benefits come with the available i-Activsense safety technologies. They make use of advanced designs, so you spot dangers earlier. Sometimes, the system will act automatically, if you don't react quickly enough. Among the many features available is radar cruise control, traffic sign recognition, and smart brake support.

Superior Comfort

Because the Mazda CX-3 interior boasts so much space, you'll feel more like you're inside a compact sedan, instead of a subcompact crossover. Up to five people can ride at a time, enjoying loads of legroom and headroom. Behind the rear seats, an ample cargo area can easily accommodate luggage, groceries, and many other items. The cargo net will even keep your things from sliding around.

This car flexes with whatever you need, so you can stay on top of changing activities from day to day. An available roof rack expands the cargo area further, especially for larger items such as bicycles, skis, snowboards, and more. If you need a secure way to transport smaller items, add a cargo box, which attaches to the roof rack crossmembers.
