8 of 9

Mazda CX-3 or Mazda CX-5?

Due to very positive reviews from the automotive press, both the CX-3 and CX-5 rank highly among affordable crossover SUVs. Which one is better for you ultimately depends on your priorities. If you value cargo space or need adult-friendly second-row seating, you’ll be better off with a CX-5. If you can get by without that extra space, the CX-3’s higher fuel economy, lower price tag and generous standard features make it a very compelling option.
