Which used Mazda CX-3 hatchback should I buy?
We like the 118bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine in the CX-3. It’s just about punchy enough and reasonably economical. The diesel is obviously the one to go for if fuel economy is the chief concern, but it’s a grumbly engine that doesn’t offer much in the way of driver appeal. The higher-powered 2.0-litre petrol is handicapped by only being available with four-wheel drive, which no CX-3 needs or deserves.
SE Nav is the cheapest trim level and comes with most of the goodies you’ll want, including cruise control and a 7.0in touchscreen infotainment system, so we’d look for one of those.
