Went yesterday, saw two CX-3, but they were in a rotating platform and not accessible, one had its doors open so you could peek inside. Attached are pictures but nothing that is really better compared with what's available online already
couldn't get much info from the reps, at least nothing that I had not learn here, no pricing, no MPG etc.
I was not a big fan of the big front before, but seing the car in person really impressed me, beautiful design
I also saw the HR-V, the 500x, Renegade, XV crosstrek hybrid, which are all on my maybe list, but so far if we look at Australia's specs it seems that the HR-V will be cheaper and with better MPG (although less powerful and prob less fun to drive) so to this date the HR-V is winning on my list

HR-V will have a CVT transmission which is belt driven and will require replacement ($$$). CX-3 will have a normal 6 speed. You may want to factor that into your decision.

A Google search indicates numerous people have had zero problems with their Honda CVT, even after 250,000 miles...

Thanks for posting these pictures. The one of the interior is great as it shows how well the two tone blends together, i'm a fan :D

Oh this one is a left hand drive so it is different from the one that I saw at the Toronto auto show. Maybe that means it is also more accurate in terms of the model being for North America instead of some other region.

Exactly how is it different?
What did you notice different from what you seen in Toronto compared to what you've seen of left hand drive north american models online?

Well I'm not exactly sure since I haven't compared them side by side or anything, but I just know that the one in Toronto was right hand drive. It could be that is the only difference or it could be that there are some more subtle differences.
