Small CUVs and SUVs are hot in America right now but Mazda’s CX-3 has always been a bit too small for some folks. To address this issue Mazda took their popular Mazda3 hatchback, tweaked the roof-line, lifted the suspension and called it a crossover. The result is something shorter than a CX-5 but longer than the average subcompact CUV in the US. But here’s the important part: Mazda priced the CX-30 squarely in the middle of the subcompact category rather than somewhere between and that makes it a strong value. If you’re looking for something more premium than a Kona, HR-V, CH-R, or Crosstrek and you want a little more room inside without breaking the bank, the CX-30 is for you. It’s also hands-down the best looking small CUV on sale today.
