Can you believe the audacity of Mazda in creating the CX-3 and asking for more money for the 2019 version? This little SUV is one that offers you a compelling drive, a lot of fun, the versatility of the cabin that you want, and a lot of features that make sense for you when you drive. Just because Mazda chose to add more stuff to this SUV, does that mean they should be able to ask for more money? Let’s take a look at the difference.
The new Mazda CX-3 Sport is offered with a tire pressure monitoring system, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alerts, a power package, push-button starting, two USB ports, 16-inch alloy wheels, a rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, the Mazda Connect infotainment system, a seven-inch color display, and the multi-function Commander control knob. That’s a much longer list than the 2018 model offered you and Mazda is asking you to pay a difference of $315 for the improved Sport model. It looks to me like this SUV is even more of a value player in the market and it will be an SUV you’re ready to drive.

Every Mazda CX-3 is offered with the 2.0-liter four-cylinder SkyActiv engine that makes 148 horsepower and 146 lb.-ft. of torque. It’s pretty easy to see the value of the CX-3 and what it brings you when you’re looking for a vehicle that brings you an excellent drive and an affordable price. Let this SUV become the one you want and choose the version that will ensure you’re ready to head out on the road for a drive that makes sense for you and gives you the qualities you’re looking for even if it’s a little more expensive than it was last year.
