Top Thomaston Subcompact SUVs: 2018 Mazda CX-3 Upgrades, Style Updates, and Interior

A subcompact crossover is a great option for drivers in Hartford, Waterbury, Hamden, and Bristol, CT who need a versatile everyday driver--and the 2018 Mazda CX-3 near Waterbury just might be the best of the bunch.

Offering comfortable five-passenger seating, peppy performance, and a stunning updated design that makes it a popular choice among drivers who frequent the city, this small SUV is the full package at an affordable price. The new lineup offers three unique trim levels:

  • 2018 Mazda CX-3 Sport
  • 2018 Mazda CX-3 Touring
  • 2018 Mazda CX-3 Sport Touring

After a full redesign in 2016, the 2018 Mazda CX-3 features a lot of design and interior carryover from its predecessor-including a driver-centric cabin that was built start to finish to be pleasing to all of the senses.

The exterior of this crossover is sharp, sleek, and built with Mazda's classic KODO design for total balance and beauty. The interior features an intuitively-designed layout for easy and comfortable seating for you and for your passengers, while a surprising array of options make it easy to customize the look and feel.

2018 Mazda CX-3 Engine, Performance, and Features

While style and substance are important to the 2018 Mazda CX-3, we know that Thomaston and Waterbury drivers are as interested in power and performance, too. When it comes to invigorating your daily commute, this Mazda crossover doesn't disappoint, with SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY making up a significant portion of the vehicle's design and equipment.

Every new 2018 Mazda CX-3 model comes standard with low-speed automated emergency braking standard. It also introduced the company's G-Vectoring Control system, which reduces engine torque imperceptibly as the CX-3 enters a corner in order to help improve cornering stability. This new system is accompanied by a tweaked suspension and to reduce cabin noise, Mazda has added thicker window glass, extra sound-deadening materials and revised door seals. The new Mazda CX-3 model also comes standard with a SKYACTIV®-G 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, that offers evenly-balanced 146 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque, and boasts up to an incredible 34 highway mpg. That's more zoom, more smiles, and a lot less gas per year.

Front-wheel drive is equipped for those who want to optimize fuel efficiency, but Mazda's i-ACTIV AWD All-Wheel-Drive System is an available option for CT drivers who prefer a more confident grip on the road in bad weather.

Like to be connected, comfortable, and catered to? With a host of great new features and options, the 2018 Mazda CX-3 is a great fit for technophiles. Located centrally and close to hand is a MAZDA CONNECT Infotainment system, with Commander Control knob for easy handling of your music and apps; upgrade to a model like the Grand Touring for available Active Driving Display, that projects important information--like speed--directly into your line of view so you don't need to constantly glance from road to dashboard and back.

And, for the metaphorical cherry on top, Mazda's i-ACTIVSENSE safety package is more affordable than ever, offering adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, brake assist, high-beam control, automatic on/off headlights, and rain-sensing wipers as an option.
