2017 Mazda CX-3

$19,960 | U.S. News Score: 8.4/10 | Sales Decline in 2017: -15.7%

If you want the high ride height and versatility of an SUV but still prioritize sportiness over space, take a look at the Mazda CX-3. Even among subcompact SUVs, its cargo area and rear seat room are on the small side, but it offers great gas mileage, exceptionally nimble handling, and precise steering for the segment. Its upscale cabin materials and user-friendly tech could also win you over.

So far this year, however, buyers have often opted for the CX-3’s more spacious rivals like the Honda HR-V and Chevy Trax. Mazda dealers have sold 15.7 percent fewer CX-3 models in 2017 than they did to this point last year. The class-sales-leading Jeep Renegade has outsold the CX-3 by a ratio of 7 to 1 in 2017.

Mazda dealers will be anxious to make up ground in the sales race, so use the CX-3’s slumping sales to negotiate its price down below sticker. This month’s Mazda deals can help you save even more. You can also use the U.S. News & World Report Best Price Program to find the dealer in your area with the lowest price.
