Well, the 2nd Jeep I've ever owned was tired. Wanted to downsize a bit and move to an import.
Delivery taken of a 2018 CX-3 AWD, Luxury Option + iActiveSense in Eternal Blue Mica (seems to be slightly different naming for other countries).
Originally I walked in looking at the CX-5 but found that it was just as big, if not a bit bigger, as my Jeep Liberty. So I went with the 3.
This car does not disappoint and am pretty glad I'm saving quite a bit on fuel now!
Planning to grab some aftermarket 18's or 19's for the summer and keep the 16's with my winter tires on them.
Suggestion for any of you thinking of a good winter tire or old winter tire replacement:
As you all know, the Yokohama all seasons that come installed are pretty non existent when the winter hits (mind you Calgary can get pretty extreme).
I opted to go with some Continental WinterContact SI's and have been pretty impressed.
We have been getting dumped on with snow then a Chinook will blow in giving the tires the full range of winter conditions.
They work quite well with the CX-3 AWD and are nice and quiet. Cornering, braking and acceleration are great. Just a stable confident tire!
I would really say on par with the Bridgestone Blizzaks (my 2nd choice).
Thank you! If I had kids and all that I'd definitely be going for the CX5.
While the Jeeps was great, I didn't effectively use all that space. On the 3, a roof rack and Whispbar Aero will fix that when needed
