Cruising Around Town in the 2016 Mazda CX-3 Grand Touring

I received this car from DriveShop for a 7 day test drive.  All opinions are my own.


I always have a great time on my test drives and this time was no different.  Zooming around town in this cute little 2016 Mazda CX-3 Grand Touring was so much fun!  The color?  Ceramic Metallic. This car was perfect for all of my errands and other daily mom duties.   It’s compact enough to park anywhere with loads of backseat and trunk space for all of my gardening goodies.  There is also great leg room if you have teens.  Just know that 3 full sized teenagers can fit in the backseat.

And get a load of this sporty “parchment” interior.  The red accents really make the stick shift look jazzy! I just love the leather lux suede sports seats (heated) and the leather wrapped steering wheel.

Here are some important things to know about this ride!

The SkyActiv-G 2.0L Engine includes a 6spd sport mode which makes gear switching a dream.  Did I mention the 18inch alloy wheels?  The anti theft engine immobilizer is absolute genius.   Did I mention that it gets 29 mpg (combined city-hwy) All of these things packaged together in this cute lil vehicle plus more!  Mazda has made sure that all of the safety measures have been met so that it’s consumers can be worry free when they take off!  Even offering a 60mos/60k warranty. If you are looking for comfort AND sport this car delivers. I mean what can I say, it really was a fun, fun ride! My pooch Chloe LOVED it!
