I've had two Mazda3 S Grand Touring models in the last several years. I had a 2007 that I replaced in November of 14 with a 2015 model. Before I bought the 2015, I looked at the CX-5 but it felt a little too big for me (I'm only 5' tall) and so I went with the 3. I was looking to get the AWD since I live in Syracuse and we get plenty of snow.
Well... the DAY I picked up my Mazda3, I found out about the CX-3 and that it was coming out. I was heartbroken but had already committed to the 3. For the last year and a half I have drooled over the CX-3 and finally decided to bite the bullet and trade in my 3.
My new CX-3 is Soul Red with almond/black interior and I'm very happy with it.
