The 2019 Mazda CX-3 and 2019 Mazda CX-5 are both capable midsized SUVs that would make any trip to West Columbia enjoyable. Both offer state-of-the-art features, a roomy interior, and a head-turning performance, but how do they compare against each other? We’re comparing the new Mazda CX-3 vs. the new Mazda CX-5.

Interior Features

Get behind the wheel of the 2019 Mazda CX-3 for a test drive, and make heads turn on the streets in Irmo. The new crossover SUV has a 2.0L DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine with VVT that pumps out 148 hp and 146 lb-ft of torque and features the SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission.
