The 2017 Mazda CX-3 is available in Sport (base), Touring, and Grand Touring trim levels. All models come with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, a six-speed automatic transmission, and front-wheel drive. You can add all-wheel drive to any trim for $1,250.
At $19,960, the base CX-3 boasts one of the lowest starting prices in the subcompact SUV class. It’s also a pretty good value, considering it comes with a 7-inch touch screen, Bluetooth, voice commands for the infotainment system, and a rearview camera. For about $500, you can add rear parking sensors, a handy feature that alerts you when something (or someone) is behind the SUV or when you approach objects like walls or poles when backing up.

Standard features of the base CX-3 (which is the CX-3 Sport trim) include a six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, HD Radio, a USB port, an infotainment system with a 7-inch touch-screen display, voice-command activation, push-button start, and a rearview camera. All options for the base trim are a la carte and include rear parking sensors ($495) and remote ignition controlled by a smartphone app ($550).
Mazda CX-3 Touring
The Touring trim starts at $21,960 and adds comfort and convenience amenities like leatherette-trimmed seats, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, proximity key entry, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross traffic alert. An optional Premium package costs $1,410 and includes a moonroof, satellite radio, and a Bose seven-speaker sound system.
Mazda CX-3 Grand Touring
For $24,990, you can get the top Grand Touring trim, which includes auto-leveling and adaptive LED headlights, a moonroof, leather and suede seats, automatic climate control, paddle shifters, a Bose seven-speaker sound system, satellite radio, navigation, and a head-up display.
