The subcompact crossover the 2019 CX-3 Sport from Mazda has appearedto be faring quite well on its way of being the choice of many for being cheap yet cheerful. But it would be wrong to label them as really cheap like any of those that flood the market. Rather it is going to be a vehicle that would be available in all-wheel drive option providing a little more scope for the clearance as a major benefit for the common man.As today the subcompact crossovers are trending, we can expect the CX-3 Sport to perform well in the sales counter.

The Power

As per the opinions of the Riverside Mazda dealer, the 2019 CX-3 as a crossover SUV required a high-grade engine and the 2.0-liter four-cylinder Skyactiv-G engine just fitted fine with the requirement to power the vehicle, with a 148 hp reducing the internal friction and at the same time increasing the low-end torque by 6.2% improving the overall fuel efficiency. While the peak torque continues to be the same at 146 lb.-ft, it would be fully available at a 2,800 rpm. As a result, the vehicle has picked up excellent handling managed by Mazda’s own G-vectoring control system and can work at the right pace.

The Design

The design of the new CX-3 has many things in the true sense to boast about. Starting with the long headlights, the make of the floating roof, clean angles and curves all bring about it a sense of aesthetics, that not many would have expected out of such a micro-SUV like this.

The interior details have the typical sport suede accents that would not miss the eye of buyers who are looking for one. The body-color vent and the seating arrangements,the placement of the tachometer along the front and center on the instrument cluster, all speak loudly about the intelligent engineering mind of the Mazda team. The head-up display would never ask you to adjust youreyes.

The headrests with a forward lean though might make you feel uncomfortable, there is option to adjust yourself better with the seat with the different angles. The primary cupholder in asmall flipping panel is a great idea of space managementand holds your cups firmly even while moving in a high speed.

The Interior

The 2019 CX-3 Sport is a spacious vehicle, in which surprisingly enough the second row feels roomier than the rest. The visibility needs some improvement as all the windows are smaller than expected, while the cargo space that measures around 10.1 cubic feet, too might disappoint many buyers as the space isn’t enough for a large family hauling. But the interior materials show that the class was maintained in every corner. The infotainment of the 2019 CX-3 remains unchanged from its earlier version.You would even now find the same old central dial for the inputs and ithas not integrated the Apple CarPlay or Android Auto functionality as of now.
