Mazda CX-3

Mazda CX-3 small SUV was an instant hit for the Japanese company when it launched in 2015, and helped to reshape the passenger car landscape with its overt styling and compact dimensions.

Based on the small Mazda2 hatch, the five-door CX-3 is offered in front-wheel or all-wheel drive versions, with diesel or petrol engines, and in levels of specification ranging from bargain basement to quasi-luxury. The CX-3 NEO SPORT (FWD) starts at $22,710 up to $40,350 for CX-3 Akari (AWD).

Its rivals are as varied as the Mercedes-Benz GLA and the Mitsubishi ASX, but it beat all comers in its first full year on sale, and will continue to perform strongly in a highly competitive space.
