2019 Mazda CX-3
The Mazda CX-3 is like the bigger, brawnier brother to the Mazda 3. It has nearly identical styling, which will make you do a double take, only distinguishing them by their size. But the Mazda CX-3 stands out in its own right. It’s a gorgeous SUV that offers adept performance and comfortable seating for all. Plus, it’s loaded with lots of fun features.
For 2019, the Mazda CX-3 is back with a few styling updates and some additional features. It also gets a more powerful engine for improved performance and more advanced safety features across all trim levels.
Take a closer look at what the 2019 Mazda CX-3 has to offer to decide if it’s the right vehicle for you:
The Mazda CX-3 has always been known to be a stylish SUV, but it has gotten a subtle refresh for the 2019 model year that makes it look even better. The 2019 CX-3 has a new grille front and center. The piano-black grille has a vaguely geometrical, half-circle design that’s trimmed in chrome and has horizontal bars running through the center. Slanting headlights with a slightly thicker profile sweep around the front edges.
You’ll see the same piano black and chrome accents throughout the exterior, including around the wheels and the windows. New LED tail lights provide better visibility whenever you’re driving.
The Mazda CX-3 straddles the right line between sporty flair and sophistication. It has a refined profile, yet it still has an exciting aura. The look makes it ideal for families, professionals, and even singles who want to make an impression.
Interior Design and Features
The inside of the 2019 Mazda CX-3 looks as good as the outside. The design is both stylish and elegant. It balances sophistication with contemporary flair – again helping the CX-3 appeal to a wide variety of audiences.
The Mazda CX-3 interior also gets a few updates for the 2019 model year. The center console on the all-new CX-3 has been redesigned so that it offers more storage space. Now, you can put more of the things you need right at hand, such as cell phones, chargers, wallets, and more. You can also use the extra storage to keep things out of sight when you are not in the vehicle. A rear armrest is also added that includes built-in cup holders to make it easier for rear passengers to enjoy themselves on longer rides.
Cloth upholstery is standard on the base model, but you can upgrade to leather by moving up the trim levels. The seats have also been redesigned for the 2019 model year to include much plusher cushions. You’ll get a more comfortable ride that will make long drives that much easier and enjoyable. The front passenger’s seat has also been made adjustable, in addition to the driver’s seat, so you can get just the fit you want. Passengers in the front and the rear will enjoy plenty of leg and head room so they can get comfortable.
Cargo space doesn’t lead the class, but you’ll find that you have plenty of room to carry what you need – whether that means your weekly groceries or your son’s sports gear, your luggage for the family road trip or your dog’s crate for the trip to the vet. You get the right balance of cargo space to passenger room, which is something that not a lot of SUVs are able to manage. You seem to always be sacrificing one for the other, but that’s not the case with the Mazda CX-3.
There are three trim levels for the 2019 Mazda CX-3, and all three of them feature the same engine: A 2.0-liter Inline 4 engine that puts out 148 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque. The engine offers enough power to make you feel like you have some get-up-and-go on the road, but not so much that it turns the SUV into a gas guzzler. With the standard front-wheel drive, the Mazda CX-3 gets an estimated 29 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway, which is exceptional for the class. When all-wheel drive is equipped, the Mazda CX-3 gets an estimated 27 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.
The base model includes 16-inch aluminum wheels, which will enhance handling on the road. However, if you move up to the mid-level Touring trim, you will get 18-inch wheels, enhancing your performance.
Technology and Convenience Features
As you might expect from an SUV that looks so luxurious, the 2019 Mazda CX-3 is loaded with plenty of great technology and convenience features. The base model, the Mazda CX-3 Sport, comes with keyless entry and push-button start, power locks and windows, cruise control, and more. The infotainment system is displayed on a 7.0-inch touchscreen, which is mounted prominently and angled toward the driver for easy access. A rotary knob in the center console makes it easy to switch stations and get information. The dashboard is streamlined for a sophisticated look. Three large knobs control the climate system, and they are among the few items you’ll find there.
When you upgrade the trim level on the Mazda CX-3, you get more features. The CX-3 Touring, the mid-level trim, adds proximity key entry, automatic climate control, and heated front seats to the interior features. You also get leatherette upholstery and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Exterior features include heated mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, and automatic headlights.
The high-end trim, the CX-3 Grand Touring, gives you all the features that the previous two trim levels offer, and it adds a power sunroof and leather seating. The infotainment system gets a power upgrade with a seven-speaker Bose sound system, HD radio, Sirius XM radio, and satellite navigation. You also get a head’s up display at this trim level, which projects all the information you need near your eye line on the windshield. You need only avert your gaze to find the details you need.
Between the three trim levels offered on the 2019 Mazda CX-3, you’ll find whatever interior features you want or need to maximize your driving experience.
Mazda has always been known for making safe vehicles, and it continues to build on its reputation with the 2019 CX-3. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the 2019 Mazda CX-3 a Top Safety Pick, and it gave it a “Good” rating in all safety categories, except the headlights. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration rated the CX-3 five stars (out of a possible five stars).
The Mazda CX-3 is loaded with safety features that enhance your protection, in addition to the sturdy construction. Standard safety features include a backup camera, airbags, traction and stability control, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. When you upgrade your trim level, you get the I-Activesense safety package, which includes adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, pedestrian detection with automatic emergency braking, and automatic high beams. You get this package on both the Touring and Grand Touring trim levels.
Whether you plan to drive the Mazda CX-3 yourself or you want to buy it for the newest driver in your family, you can feel confident knowing that the manufacturer has put great attention into making it one of the safest automobiles on the road. The Mazda CX-3 is so safe that you will feel comfortable carrying around your most precious cargo in it.
