Mazda CX-3 sTouring 2019 review: snapshot

EXPERT RATING
8

The sTouring is the almost-premium car in the range, and will no doubt be the sweet spot for some buyers.

Starting at $30,740, you get the option of either FWD or i-Activ AWD, which almost no one will take up, realistically. You also have the choice of the 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine making 110kW/195Nm and producing fuel economy of 6.3 litres per 100km (or 6.6L/100km for the manual) or the 1.8-litre diesel (which again, almost no one will choose), which only comes with FWD and an automatic transmission, and delivers impressive fuel economy of 4.7L/100km, plus 85kW and 270Nm.

You get a bit of visual differentiation from the lower models here, starting with 18-inch alloy wheels, power mirrors with heating and auto folding, LED day-time running lights, fog lights, headlamps and tail-lights, black 'Maztek' and cloth seats, head-up display, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, keyless entry and start, 'Driver Attention Alert', from parking sensors and 'Traffic Sign Recognition'. 

Apple CarPlay is not yet available, but it's coming soon, and a kit to retrofit it will be available at Mazda dealers in the near future.
