Hello!
I am a lady from Europe who used to drive the 2 and when the new 2 was released I ordered it.
Before that I was interested in Captur but the rate between price and equipment wasn’t making me happy. I asked about CX3 but the dealer told me it will not be released before 2016. Then I thought, ok, mazda 2 is my car, I should have a new one. And I made a deposit, the car should come in a week or two.
But then, all of the sudden, they got CX3 in the showroom and started to sell it! I went for a drive and I am in love!!! It is indeed much more money than I intended to spend and we do not have heavy snow like you guys in Canada, and although I like to go to the mountains it is not that often, and I will drive mostly from home to work (in the city) and 100-200km out of town on weekends. But I love it!!!!
I have to decide very soon if I should cancel the 2 that is coming. And I have to wait until November/December for CX3, which is way to long!
I need your support to become a CX3 owner ))
Are there any female owners here?

I don't know how many girls are here or own a CX-3 to be honest.

If you need a AWD transmission, CX-3.
If you need fuel efficiency, Mazda2 (same engine, different transmission and weight).
If you need a bit more cargo space, CX-3.

Design is a matter of taste, there is not much more I can tell about it because I haven't seen the new Mazda2 yet... even in a dealer !
So it's your call on this one ...

If the dealer wants to close a deal they will let you transfer your deposit over to the CX-3. They can just bring the 2 onto their lot and sell it to another customer. I doubt you should be locked into anything.

Go and see the dealer. If you go ahead with the 2, you will never be happy. If that were not the case, you wouldn't have posted.

Thank you all. Anchorman, I guess you are right. I just needed someone to shut up my common sense voice which keeps asking me why do I need a crossover in the first place.

And the dealer might actually be happy because they might have a buyer for my 2, they just need to convince him Deep Crystal Blue is better than the red one ;)

So, I might be joining you owners sometime in winter with my Crystal White Challenge.

Great you have a choice. We will not get the new 2 in the U.S.
I prefer the looks of the CX and it has (or is available with) a stronger motor. But, it is much more expensive, uses more fuel, and is only marginally roomier.

You should hold out if you can and drive both before you decide.
If you can't wait, don't sweat it. There is no wrong choice between them as they are both the best in their respective classes.

We in the US actually do get the Mazda2 but with a Scion iA badge. Weird seeing the Mazda2/CX-3 interior with Scion badges.

Would the dealer not be open to simply switching the order? I'm sure they won't find too much difficulty moving the car afterwards! You're still giving them money, what should they care ;)

No, the Scion is not JUST a rebadged 2. I could accept that , but besides rebadging, Scion saw fit to stick a catfish nose on it and eliminated any bright options for the interior, taking it out of consideration for me and probably thousands more. No wonder Scion sales keep slipping.

Yes, the face is pretty bad. I've seen the new Mazda2 while overseas and its an attractive car. Too bad Toyota messed it up. :(

Yeah, I can understand them not wanting to carry forward with the original nose, which immediately identifies it as a Mazda, but they should have used the opportunity to improve it with something sleeker. Could have done something along the lines of the iM , that would have made some sense.

Don't understand why these major corporations don't come to me before making critical decisions. :(:D;)

I ordered a Deep Crystal Blue Mica CX3 Maxx the other weekend, will be waiting until September though. It's the right size for my needs, the 2 is too small and the 3 just a bit too big. :)
Oh, I went for Blue Mica with my 2. It has arrived last week, I went to see it, that blue color suits it well indeed.

I signed my CX3 order. (No problem with the dealer).
But for Crystal white this time, it seems prettier to me in white.
And the waiting will last till December. Means I have to buy winter tires right away :)

Congrats. Sounds like you are no longer the least bit conflicted. Keep us posted on how it all works out.

Hey there,

My name is Liz and I just got my CX-3 last week :) The wait time was just over 2 months but worth it - it is awesome, I love it! I choose the Ceramic Metallic which looks amazing.
