May 11 2017,
The subcompact sport utility vehicle segment has been booming in recent months, and the 2017 Mazda CX-3 is just one of the handful of quality models offered to buyers looking for an efficient and versatile vehicle that is also easy to drive and park in the city. That said, the 2017 Mazda CX-3 offers buyers something most other subcompact SUVs cannot, and you will notice it the minute you get out on the road.

Indeed, the 2017 Mazda CX-3 is probably the only vehicle in its growing segment to offer what experts would call impressive handling and sporty driving dynamics. Like all Mazda vehicles, the CX-3 was designed to be efficient while also being a blast to drive. For buyers looking for a versatile vehicle that feels connected to the road and that can be truly enjoyed on a winding road, the 2017 Mazda CX-3 may very well be the perfect choice.
Powered by a 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine that delivers 146 horsepower and 146 lb.-ft. of torque, the 2017 Mazda CX-3 offers more power under your right foot than most subcompact SUVs currently offered on the market. Power is sent to the front wheels in entry-level models, while other CX-3 trims come standard with all-wheel drive.
