  1. My wife wants one realllllly bad after seeing it at the auto show yesterday. Not mentioned in this video buy my favorite feature of the Grand Touring model is a full LED lighting package all around, including the headlights.

  2. Hey Brian, don't mean to pile on but…. you'll be happy to know that there are 3 settings for the Lane Keep warning…. Beeps, Rumble Noise or Off. You could have changed the warning to a beeping noise if that gets your attention better than the simulated Rumble Strip noises. Your local Mazda salesman would be happy to demonstrate it for you when you stop in to buy your new CX-3.

  3. The highway number seems quite reasonable, but I bet owners will struggle to get the city number. A tiny 2.0L engine on this car would have to work over time in stop and go traffic conditions to maintain the speed limit.

  4. Just bought my CX3 Grand Touring FWD with iActivesense on 9/7 in Ceramic Silver with black leather. FWD hard to get right now in Cali. Most are AWD. Favorite feature so far is the Radar Cruise Control. First tank averaged 33.2 mpg.

  5. I work at Mazda and even the sales guys can't explain why you'd buy a CX-3 when you can buy a cheaper, roomier, faster, more efficient, and better driving Mazda3 GT? And I can get that in a manual with the 2.5L engine. The only benefit of the CX-3 is AWD and even then, with winter tires, front wheel drive can overcome AWD in most cases…POINTLESS!
