2017 Mazda CX-3 2.0 Skyactiv-G 120 GT Sport review - verdict
The Mazda CX-3 gets a new limited-edition range-topping model, but is it worth the premium it commands?...
Even entry-level CX-3s look pricey compared with the competition, so it’s no surprise that this limited-edition trim level, at £22,895 (and £2000 more expensive than Sport Nav), looks far too expensive for us to recommend.
Yes, if you’re set on a kitted-out CX-3 and want a slice of exclusivity, then this GT Sport model is worth consideration. But, for us, the real sweet spot of the range is mid-spec SE-L Nav, which offers all the kit you need for a lower price.
Ultimately, though, the CX-3 struggles to stand out in what is an extremely crowded and competitiive small SUV class. A Seat Ateca, Nissan Qashqai or Peugeot 3008 are all more rounded small SUVs full stop.
