What used Mazda CX-3 hatchback will I get for my budget?

Choose to buy your CX-3 from a trader and accept an average mileage and you could pick one up for around £10,000. However, we’d recommend spending a little more and getting a clean car from an independent dealer, say between £11,000 and £13,000. Up the ante to between £14,000 and £16,000 and you’ll find good 2015 cars with a low to average mileage for the year, bought from a franchised dealer. Those after 2016 or 2017 models should expect to be forking out around £18,000.

How much does it cost to run a Mazda CX-3 hatchback?

Unsurprisingly, the diesel romps home in the economy race. Its claimed average fuel consumption is a wholesome 70.6mpg, with corresponding CO2 emissions of 105g/km. The four-wheel-drive version reduces this to just 60.1mpg. Of the petrols, the 118bhp engine claims an average of 47.9mpg, while the four-wheel-drive 148bhp version claims 44.1mpg.

Road tax for cars registered before April 2017 is based on CO2 emissions, so the diesel models are naturally cheaper. Those registered after that date will all be charged at the current flat rate.

Insurance groups vary between 14 and 18, depending on power output.

Mazda offers fixed-price maintenance. This gives you a list of how much common maintenance operations, such as changing the brake discs or pads, will cost, which you can then use to compare prices with independant garages in your area. Mazda also offers extended servicing plans to cater for different ownership and usage requirements, and the CX-3 should be about average for the class in terms of servicing costs.
