2018 Mazda CX-3 fuel mileage estimates 

The EPA gave the same mileage estimates to all three trim levels in the 2018 Mazda CX-3’s lineup, though estimates do vary based on equipped drivetrain. Models equipped with 4WD offer an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 29/34 MPG city/highway, and models that have Mazda’s i-ACTIV AWD® system are estimated at 27/32 MPG city/highway. When determining just how far models can travel on one tank of gas, we also have to take fuel tank capacity into account. FWD models have a 12.7-gallon fuel tank, while i-ACTIV AWD® models can carry slightly less fuel, coming in at 11.9 gallons. Additionally, driving conditions need to be taken into account. Vehicles often get a lower city fuel rating than highway, but since no one feasibly drives solely on one or the other, we will use the combined fuel rating in our calculations. So, without further ado, take a look at the chart below to find out how far the 2018 CX-3 can go on just one tank of gas!
