The Mazda CX-3 is in the smallest category of SUV. Their sales have rebounded very strongly in the first four months of the year compared to the COVID slump of 2020 which hit Mazda hard and leads this category even outselling its nearest rival, the Toyota Yaris Cross by more than two to one.
The range is huge. There are six variants in two-wheel drive and four in all wheel drive.
Prices, before on road costs, range from $22,900 up to $38,700.
All run a two litre 110kW petrol engine
