You'll be hard pressed to find a better-looking small SUV than the Mazda CX-3. The Japanese manufacturer makes a car oozing class in a segment that has historically been a touch short on elegant rivalry. And in 2018, the CX-3 received a (very) light styling refresh to keep it contemporary, with some further changes made beneath the skin.
For a start, Mazda tweaked the CX-3's suspension, aiming to emulate the tidy handling and comfort of its bigger brother, the CX-5. Plus, to keep technophiles happy, it added some new features, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring.
Meanwhile, the range continues to offer plenty of choice, with two 2.0-litre petrol engines and a 1.8-litre diesel. A choice of manual or automatic gearbox is available, and, to prove the CX-3’s not just a ‘soft-roader’, it’s one of the few small SUVs that can be ordered with four-wheel drive.
