Mazda CX-3 used car review
Greg Hill reviews the Mazda CX-3.
Mazda CX-3’s all-round quality, refinement and on-road ability set a high standard that is hard to beat in the compact SUV class. Introduced in 2015, it has proven to be reliable, and plenty of them are now coming onto the used market.
While many vehicles in this category are front-wheel drive only, CX-3 also has all-wheel-drive models which provide extra grip in slippery conditions. There are two engine options, and overall there are seven specification grades.
On the used market there’s an even spread between the mid and high-spec models, with Maxx, Maxx Sport, sTouring and Akari accounting for most of the vehicles advertised. Although a six-speed manual transmission is available in all front-wheel-drive models except the top-level Akari LS, six-speed automatic versions dominate the market.
