Review

Good looking, well equipped, and featuring an easy-to-use infotainment system, the Mazda CX-3 is not without its charms. However, the naturally aspirated petrol engines feel weak compared to their turbocharged rivals, and the CX-3 isn't particularly refined at speed. Meanwhile, there are more practical small SUVs to choose from in terms of rear seat and boot space.

Engine:

1.8d

If you want the most easily accessible performance, choose the diesel. It’s slower than the petrols from 0-62mph (9.9sec) but delivers its oomph much lower down – from around 1500rpm - and feels faster in everyday driving as a result. For a diesel, it revs out keenly, too. Only available with a manual gearbox, front-wheel drive and annoyingly, with the top-spec Sport Nav+ trim, which makes it pricey.
