It was a long holiday, 3 days of fun with the family and we were lucky enough to have a Mazda CX3 for a week to test drive. When they delivered "Jeanna Grey" we were all really happy. It was time to see what this baby can do off road and how it performs on busy freeways.
The Mazda CX3 is a super cute car full of awesome features such as navigation, blue-tooth and satellite radio with 7 Bose speakers.
We were very impressed with the huge savings on gas. We got 38 MPG on the highway even with the air conditioner on.
We liked the blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert but one of my favorite features was the forward collision mitigation system that reduces the speed when you are using cruise control and you get near another car. Talk about safety!
We all loved the “sport mode” that gives the car better acceleration and power, but I think this is my husband's favorite feature.
The seats are super comfortable and there is a lot of leg room for a compact SUV. Although there is not a lot of trunk space it is enough for a family of three. I would say this is a car for a small family and I do not think the car seats more than 4 people comfortable, so if you have a big family this is not a car for you.
Going off road to visit some friends was a breeze thanks to the i-ACTIV AWD™ all-wheel-drive system. Awesome power for such a cute car. We are looking to buy a new vehicle and this one is on the top of our list.
What do you think about this car?
