It took awhile, but Mazda's contender in the growing B-segment crossover has finally arrived in the country. Combining the frugality and looks of the Mazda2 sedan and making it into a taller vehicle resulted in the all-new CX-3. All models on offer are driven by a 2.0-liter SkyActiv-G engine with i-STOP, with the range-topping variant benefitting from AWD. The result is a very potent pocket rocket on stilts while packing all the bells and whistles one might found on more upscale crossovers.
