Hello Everyone!
On July 31, I've got my CX3 GT model with Technology Package and Ceramic Metallic color. It's been 3 weeks and I proudly drove my CX3 around Toronto.

Please follow these links on YouTube to see how dealers talk about CX3:

1) Mazda CX-3 - Ride & Drive Event - Toronto:

They compared AWD demonstration with CX3 against Subaru Crosstrek

2) Mazda CX-3 - AWD Diagonal Test

3) MAZDA CX-3 - Differences between Crystal White, Arctic White & Ceramic Metallic

Finally, video of CX3 shot at night in 4k

Hope all of you enjoy your CX-3 :)

Glad to have you here. Always happy to have another Canadian around.

No problems with your CX3 I am guessing? All good?

Wouldn't have expected the Subaru to have AWD kick in so late. Being a person that needs an all weather vehicle, come winter time I know the CX-3 will serve me far better than that XV.

Thanks Frank!

After driving around to work and home, I think CX3 was programmed to adapt your driving habits. First week was rough, second week CX3 was getting smoother. That's what I think. :nerd:

I really enjoyed the Boss system. My settings were Bass +3, Treb +6 and Fade +2 for shifting sound to rear to create surround ambience. I don't use CD player - but listen to 6G of my music collection stored in micro USB drive. Please note that USB must be ver 2.0 and formatted as FAT32. If not, CX3 won't recognize MP3 or Wave files.

Welcome and congrats! Hey, we have the exact same specs. The Bose sound system is amazing. Much better than I thought it would be. We got tints to protect the leather and keep the car cool. We live in T.O. as well and it gets pretty hot and humid up here. We did notice when you start the car from it he engine being cold, it gets pretty loud then the engine quiets down. Wonder if that's a skyactiv thing. If you see another Ceramic GT around town it may be us.

Congratulations Baduk. Thanks for the Bose stereo tips and for the YouTube URLs.

Let us know how the i-Activsense tech is working for you.

Also paddle shifters. Have you used them?

Before i started the CX-3 for the test drive the dealer warned me not to be alarmed by the high idle sound on start. Something warming up on the Skyactiv system.

Thanks RAMPANT!

I do enjoy driving my CX3 :)

Here are some shots of my CX3 using Samsung Note 3 at home, at work and around town. There's also a shot of Rear View Monitor. I think CX3's wide angle view is 170° - but I may be wrong.

Have a nice day!
