First Bad review I've Seen of the CX-3

It's pretty short and to the point: 2016 Mazda CX-3 Review: It?s A Lot Worse Than The Mazda3! ? NSEAVoice

Did they even drive the car? The writer mentioned a "tour with the vehicle", whatever that means...

What a terrible review. I wish I could send the author a bill for wasting my time.

That review actually doesn’t offend me. I can see what they are saying in that it is expensive compared to other models in the range UNLESS it is the concept that excites the buyer and in my case it did. For a spacious saloon, the 3 is a better alternative (thats how I read it).

The CX3 is what it is - the most stylish compact crossover on the market.

I don't think this qualifies as a review. What is that website anyways? Never heard of them. It sounds like this guy just looked at some pictures and said "meh I don't like it".

"It gets more confusing with the pricing of the CX-3 as it is weaker and smaller, but more expansive than the Mazda3." And he needs to proofread. This is the type of crap people post on Facebook.

whilst the article sounds narrowly opinionated, the author isn't wrong. Unless the consumer is interested in adventuring into this new segment, it's an awkwardly sized vehicle thats kind of in limbo.

I agree with the article to an extent. The CX3 is a weak choice in FWD format compared to the Mazda3. In that comparison the CX3 is smaller, slower and gets worse MPG. And its more expensive!

If you don't want a tiny vehicle with AWD then get the Mazda3. Thankfully I wanted a small vehicle with AWD and there is no better choice than the CX3 for that.

Oh, I don't care about what this person has to say about the CX-3 - I knew exactly what I was getting and I really did not what to go from a MS3 to a 3 ("Really, it's the same car, just no turbo and lack of insanity"). It is the review itself that is "bad".

In the UK, the almost same spec FWD Mazda3 as the FWD CX-3 I purchased works out at around $70 cheaper list price. I can live with the better looks, plus LED lights, of the CX-3 for that additional cost - even if it does mean suffering the 21mm less rear legroom
