All-New 2016 Mazda CX-3 Subcompact Crossover Competitively Priced

Subcompact crossovers are hot right now. So hot, in fact, that Mazda doesn’t want to be left behind and has introduced the new 2016 Mazaa CX-3.

Set to go on sale at dealerships in mid-August, the brand’s entry-level CUV offering will start at $19,960 for the CX-3 Sport. 

Stepping up from CX-3 Sport to the mid-level CX-3 Touring yields additional niceties like leatherette seating surfaces with cloth inserts, heated seats, Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM), Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA), Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry, heated door mirrors, a center armrest and leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter. The available Touring Technology Package adds a one-touch power moonroof, SiriusXM and HD radio and a rear cargo cover.

CX-3 Grand Touring ups the ante with a one-touch power moonroof, navigation, Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS), Active Driving Display pop-up head-up display, leather and Lux Suede two-toned seats, a seven-speaker Bose® premium audio system with SiriusXM satellite and HD radio, a rear cargo cover, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters and LED headlights, fog lights, daytime running lights and tail lights.

When equipped with the Grand Touring i-ACTIVSENSE package, CX-3 packs features unavailable in rival vehicles like Mazda Radar Cruise Control, Smart City Brake Support, Smart Brake Support, High Beam Control System, Lane Departure Warning System, rain-sensing wipers and auto on/off headlights.

i-ACTIV (AWD) is an available upgrade ($1250) on all trim levels and includes all-wheel drive that takes temperature, road conditions, steering-angle and weather into account, among other factors, to help optimize to which wheels engine power is routed for maximum performance and stability.

MSRP for each CX-3 trim level is as follows:

  • CX-3 Sport: $19,960
  • CX-3 Touring: $21,960
    • Touring Technology Package: $1,410
  • CX-3 Grand Touring: $24,990
    • i-ACTIVSENSE safety package: $1,920
