The differences are hard to spot, but new wheels are one of the key changes.

The 2019 CX-3 uses the same 2.0-liter engine as last year, though power and torque have been increased just a bit.

The engine's new output ratings are 148 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque. That's an increase of two of each if you're keeping track.

The front end is a little sharper, with a redesigned grille and some new chrome accents.

The rear glass is thicker, which should result in a quieter cabin.

High-end models get a full leather interior.
