Themight be stealing all the crossover thunder at the Japanese brand recently, but the little is still kicking.
With just the single trim still offered, that'd be the Sport trim, a 2021 CX-3 costs $21,740 after a $1,100 destination charge. If you want all-wheel drive, that'll be $1,400 more for a total price of $23,140. No matter where power goes, it comes from a 2.0-liter inline-four engine that makes 148 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque. Aside from the final price, there are a few extra-cost colors available, but otherwise, what you see is what you get.
And thankfully, the CX-3 is packed with a decent haul's worth of standard gear. It doesn't pack the latest interior design found in, say, the Mazda3 or CX-30, but buyers still get a 7-inch touchscreen for infotainment, and , and all of it runs through a separate command knob or steering wheel controls. Smart keyless entry, push-button start and other simple comforts all come along for the ride.
Mazda's suite of active safety gear is on board as well. The"i-Activsense gear, including automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and blind-spot monitors, comes standard on the 2021 CX-3.
Look for the crossover to land at dealers in September.
