Ten Second Review
Mazda CX-3 Lease Review - The Mazda CX-3 is indeed another SUV, but this SUV isn't a big scary monster like most. With its stylish shape and eye-like headlights, this piece of automotive art is smart, but laid back with all the perks of a regular SUV, minus the intimidation factor of most.
With the option of a 2.0-litre petrol engine, or a 1.5-litre diesel engine you get the power you require. The 2.0-litre petrol engine puts out a rather nice 118bhp while only causing minimal damage on the environment with 136g/km emissions. And the 1.5-litre diesel engine puts out 104bhp and a nice and low 105g/km.
So, you're now thinking “Is this car for me?”. The answer of course is yes. With 5 different trim levels there is a CX-3 for everybody. From the Entry-level SE with it's heated and electronic folding wing mirrors and 16 inch alloys, to the Sport Nav with LED headlights and rear lights, an upgraded Bose stereo system, key-less entry and many more amazing features. If the CX-3 doesn't offer it, chances are, you don't really need it.
As well as offering a front wheel drive system, the CX-3 is also available in a 4 wheel drive variant, so be it sleet, snow or storm force winds, you'll be getting where you require with ease and style.
But with all these features, surely you'll be forking out your life savings right? Wrong. With the 2WD petrol entry level SE trim starting at a mere retail price of £17,595 and the SE trim 2WD diesel starting at £18,995, the CX-3 can be closer to your price range than you originally thought.
All in all, if you're looking for a friendly, smart and affordable SUV, the CX-3 could be your perfect driving partner.
