As the popularity of SUVs increases, Mazda has answered the call of creating SUVs that drive like cars rather than top-heavy trucks. The 2019 CX-3 and CX-5 represent the very best in styling, value, and comfort. One look at them and you will see that these vehicles stand apart from others in their respective classes. Mazda has been creating elegant vehicles and the CX-3 and CX-5 are absolutely no exceptions.


The 2019 Mazda CX-3 is a subcompact SUV with excellent driving dynamics. It comes in three different trim levels (Sport, Touring and Grand Touring), each with Mazda’s SKYACTIV®-G 2.0L 4-cylinder aluminum alloy engine that produces 148 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque. Outstanding suspension tuning coupled with the zippy engine makes the CX-3 feel racy. The CX-5 is a compact SUV that comes in five different trim levels (Sport, Touring, Grand Touring, Grand Touring Reserve and Signature). The Sport, Touring and Grand Touring trims come standard with a 187-horsepower SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L 4-cylinder that produces 186 lb-ft of torque. The Grand Touring Reserve and Signature lines come with a turbocharged 250-horsepower engine that produces 310 lb-ft of torque for incredible power. The ride handling is exceptional and the steering is razor-sharp.


The CX-3 and CX-5 feature a beautiful yet aggressive front fascia. Mazda’s distinctive styling is on full display with both of these capable SUVs. Mazda employs several Japanese philosophies into the designs of their vehicles. “Kodo” (or soul of motion) is used to capture energy in motion, even at a standstill. A dynamic sense of motion urges you to get behind the wheel. “Ikebana”, the Japanese art of flower arrangement, expresses a philosophy of essentialism. Color combinations, graceful lines and a sense of harmony among materials are features that make both vehicles eloquent. Connecting the car and the driver is Mazda’s goal in achieving “oneness”. Drivers of the CX-3 and CX-5 will experience a seamless connection between man and machine, leaving all distractions behind. The CX-3 and CX-5 are visually stunning from every angle.


Both the CX-3 and CX-5 use a variety of excellent materials inside the cabin. They both feature a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that compliments the dash design very well. An excellent suite of driver-assisted technologies bless both vehicles, including adaptive cruise control, a lane departure warning, and automated emergency braking. The Grand Touring Reserve and Signature versions of the CX-5 feature genuine layered wood trim, Caturra Brown Nappa leather, ambient cabin lighting, and a frameless auto-dimming rearview mirror. The CX-3 features a 7-speaker Bose surround sound audio system and available steering wheel paddle shifters.

The CX-3 and CX-5 are remarkable SUVs with design elements and features that are found in vehicles costing double the price. With gorgeous styling, a captivating ride and incredible attention to detail, the 2019 CX-3 and CX-5 represent the best that Mazda has to offer.
