First of all, important donor cars are the best – the CX-3’s new supermini is borrowing platforms, engines and drivetrain from the Mazda 2. This is also a handsome kid – a much smarter polarizer for dogs or smarter than Ecosport’s rival Juke. And look for everything in this industry. Great gains from the outside, Mazda – and the rest can be observed.
It is a definite journey to reward truly satisfying dynamics. This is well controlled and uncomfortable, but even with smaller 16-inch alloys, the CX-3 will be too rigid for some people. The non-turbo gasoline engine also has torque-lite, so be prepared to look at the gearbox (or the more tedious but stronger 103bhp specifications) for the urgency of avoiding traffic.
There’s not enough space for a big supermini (rival Yeti, after all) and a 100-liter Mazda 2 boat. The standard parking sensors SE-L and above can be invaluable, given how many are likely to be used in the city center.
