Most Reliable SUV
Deputy Director Dan Pund seemed outside your cubicle a portion of parking the car and driver, considered the 2016 Mazda CX-3 for a moment and said: “is only a Pontiac Vibe”.
He was making an observation, not throw an insult. If we were not living in the age of the crossover, we – you, me and all the driving public – call CX-3 cars. Caspofungin this crossover and the Mazda 3 hatchback is the coating of grey plastic that runs along the bottom of the body.
Note the PUND highlights a higher truth as well as: crossovers reduce these proportions of subcompact, become less as SUV and that look more like cars. From our perspective, where you can enjoy a low center of gravity and the proportional benefit to handling, which is not a bad thing.
In fact, the CX-3 is very, very good. Units mini-ute of Mazda as a Pontiac Vibe in the same manner as a Ferrari as a Fiat car. The CX-3 steers, corners with aplomb and patina on the road with a verve that is almost universally absent among crosses. Toggle between sport and fast change automatic transmission takes on Porsche-esque logic, Downshifting as a brake to a next corner. Without a doubt, the Mazda built the car driver – er, crossover, in this booming segment.
Amble 8.1 – second CX-3 to 60 mph qualifies as fast, but only because the vehicles in this class often in the nines and occasionally flirt with the 10 second mark. Credit for its lightness goes to the weight of 2932 pounds thin, as the 146 HP engine, the 2.0 liter four cylinder required rotations to his power, but grinds toward the 6800 rpm redline with noisy protest.
The humble wheels 16 inch and tyres on our tour on foot of medium-level model produced figures of modest performance on the track. The CX-3 circulates the skidpad to 0.81 g with invincible stability control brake bite and then published to a distance of 181 feet 70 Ho-Hum parada-a – zero-km/h. in the tradition of typical Mazda, however, the CX-3 sacrifices in concrete numbers more than compensates in character of driving.

Even those who are indifferent to the charms of the dynamics of Mazda should find a lot of love in the CX-3. The aggressive exterior styling, exquisite interior luxury, peaceful ends. Our test passenger cars are priced at approximately $25500 (MSRPs official have still not announced) and delivered a cabin very well stitched, perfect ergonomics and all the technology that people really use without any strange hair. We were also impressed by our fuel economy average of 28 mpg more than 300 miles.
In 7.3 inches of length less than a Mazda 3, the main fault of the CX-3 is lost. The amount of space behind the front buckets is really compressed. Anyone wishing to use the rear seats on a regular basis would be better served by a refrigerator taking boxes of this segment, such as the Jeep renegade or the Kia Soul.
But if the fun of driving on most of your purchases, list you can not find a little better than the crossover Mazda CX-3. Or you could just buy a car. Read also : Best 7 Passenger SUV 2017 Audi Q7
