Mazda CX-3 – 2016-Present

Mazda CX-3 History

Debut: 2016
Type: Compact Crossover SUV
Competition: Honda HR-V, Chevrolet Trax, Jeep Renegade

The compact crossover segment is becoming crowded with small, hatchback-sized cars that are easier to get into, and have a better viewing angle. The CX-3 is Mazda’s third and smallest SUV sitting below the the CX-5. In size the CX-3 is comparable to the now discontinued Mazda2. Perhaps the introduction of the smallest crossover to the Mazda lineup was the reason for the 2’s sad demise.
