Mazda Compact and Crossover SUVs

Compact and midsize SUVs are a reliable compromise between vehicles. They offer more practicality in seating and storage space over sedans, yet still retain the respectable fuel economy and responsive handling not found in full-sized SUVs. Mazda has 3 SUV models within its catalog, expertly marketed and organized to show a clear advancement in size and power. These vehicles are the Mazda CX-3, the Mazda CX-5, and the Mazda CX-9.

A straightforward look tells you a great deal as the Mazda CX-3 is the smallest model, the Mazda CX-9 is the largest, and the Mazda CX-5 is the middle child in-between. Still, that leaves many features and specifications untold. What are the specifics that each Mazda SUV offers in their unique model? 

2018 Mazda CX-3 

First up we have the smallest model, the 2018 Mazda CX-3. Because of its size, the Mazda CX-3 offers the best fuel economy among the Mazda SUVs with a combined city and highway MPG of 31. However, the Mazda CX-3’s size means it also is the lowest in terms of power, seating, and storage. Still, the 2018 Mazda CX-3 is a comfortable, sporty, and fun ride starting at $20,110.

The newest of Mazda’s 2018 SUVs, the 2018 Mazda CX-5 is a triumph that doesn’t sit forgotten between the CX-3 and CX-9. Starting at $24,045, the 2018 Mazda CX-5 offers the same 5 passenger seating of the Mazda CX-3, but with much more room to stretch for a comfortable ride. The 2018 Mazda CX-5 also has a maximum cargo capacity of 59.6 cu. ft. compared to the Mazda CX-3’s 44.5 cu. ft. of space. Likewise, it also improves on power with an incredibly balanced 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque!
