Hi everyone - I stumbled on your site whilst researching new cars and it's great to see a forum for the CX-3. I'm from Australia and have had my CX-3 Akari for a month now and am absolutely loving it! I've only ever driven small cars, my last being a Mazda 2 so I was looking for a step up but not something massively bigger so the CX-3 suits me perfectly! I know some people say cabin or boot space is an issue but it depends what you're looking for. I don't often have back seat passengers but because I'm fairly short I need the seat far forward which gives a passenger in the back seat plenty of room. I can also fit lots of groceries in the back. I think the car drives beautifully and whilst you technically don't need all the gadgets in a car the heated seats are soooo lovely & the ability to take calls when driving is very handy...it is certainly a step up from my last car. Mazda cars are terrific and anyone considering purchasing one should definitely look into it.
