Make and Performance of the 2020 Mazda CX-3
When a vehicle holds the logo of Mazda on its front grille, the first two aspects that will cross our mind are the way it looks and the way it drives. In other words, a Mazda car will always draw the attention of people around on its make and the people sitting inside on its performance.
Here we have selected the 2020 edition of the Mazda CX-3 series, a stylized crossover that took no time in winning our hearts by its look alone, so, we wanted to confirm if it will sustain our interest in the model through its performance as well.
To try it out, we visited the most renowned showroom of the Schertz Mazda dealer, and booked a test drive. What we experienced was worth remembering and so we felt it worthy enough to be shared with you as well.
The 2020 edition of Mazda CX-3 wears the look of a tall hatchback, that borders on the segment of crossover that combines the look of a hatchback with the purpose and efficiency of an SUV. The 2020 Mazda CX-3 looks polished rather than forcefully rugged. But once you drive it through the uneven surfaces you’ll recognize the off-roader in no time. Its lines look clean and are quite similar to that of the Mazda 3 hatchback style, and overall that suits the character that it shows when you drive it through different terrains.
Its frontal appearance is similar to all its siblings while its finely carved body lines ask for a careful attention towards them. They look intricate near the wheels that now have some nice detailing. The higher trims justify their price through the ride height caused by the 18-inch wheels and overall the shape of a crossover is etched without making it appear monotonous from any angle.
As you get inside its cabin, the spacious room makes the 2020 Mazda CX-3 series look posher than what you expect at its price. Though the gauge cluster wears a plain look, it overall creates the impression of sophistication that is associated with its brand name which has shown the world how a vehicle should be designed.
At the entry-level, the 2020Mazda CX-3 models offer an optional head-up display that works in tune with Mazda Connect to serve all the functionalities of the infotainment system.

The powertrain is also supported with effective driving dynamics that enables crisp steering responses and easy maneuverability that never fails to deliver a creamy ride, even when you drive it through rough road surfaces. .
