Notes From A Week's Worth Of Car Testing In California

Managing Editor Steven Ewing drove some $2 million worth of new cars while out in California for Monterey Car Week. Here are his notes following an excellent week of driving.


Mazda issues suggested retailing pricing for the new 2016 CX-3 subcompact crossover, starting at around $20,000 but quickly ratcheting up to nearly $30,000.


Mazda has announced EPA fuel economy figures for the new CX-3 subcompact crossover, besting anything else in its class with up to 35 miles per gallon on the highway.


A Great-Driving Entry In The Compact CUV Space

The booming compact CUV segment just got a little more interesting with the addition of the dynamic 2016 Mazda CX-3. We take one out for a full test in Arizona.


Japanese Automaker Touts Fuel Efficiency, Improving Reputation For Diesel Emphasis

Mazda says its CX-3 compact crossover will exclusively be diesel-powered in Japan.


One day removed from our latest round of spy photos, Mazda has finally lifted the veil on its 2016 CX-3 crossover, giving us our very first glimpse at the Mazda2-based entry into the rapidly expanding world of subcompact crossovers.


The Mazda CX-3 is just days away from its unveiling at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, but elsewhere in the world, the Japanese brand still has the compact crossover disguised for testing. These spy shots aren't too camouflaged though, and when combined with the previous teaser image, they give a pretty clear idea what the new model will look like.


The Mazda booth at this year's Los Angeles Auto Show will showcase some new crossovers. In addition to the refreshed CX-5 that we're expecting, the Japanese automaker has announced plans to unveil its new CX-3 compact crossover.


Mazda has used its Kodo design language to make some of the most attractive, affordable cars in the world right now, with the Mazda3, Mazda6 and CX-5 (pictured above), but it still lacks a crossover in the smaller class, which are becoming popular on the world market. It seems like a natural fit then, that the Japanese company would shrink its CUV design even smaller for a CX-3 to fill the gap. However, a rumor suggests that the compact might not make it to these shores.
