600 × 335

There is a lot of competition in the small SUV space but the info below will outline why we believe the 2019 Mazda CX-3 is the right choice for Kansas City drivers.

Performance

For starters, the CX-3 comes with Mazda’s reliable 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Mazda uses its SKYACTIV®-Drive six-speed automatic transmission to handle the 148 horsepower and 146 foot pounds of torque. Even with all of that available power, the CX-3 achieves very efficient EPA estimated fuel rating of 29mpg city and 34mpg highway. That means with its 12.7 gallon fuel capacity the CX-3 can go from Kansas City to St. Louis and more than half way back, or roughly 430 miles on a single tank of gas.

Safety and Security

The CX-3 has an available suite of safety features for 2018. Some of the active safety features include Front automated emergency braking, rear cross-traffic monitoring, forward collision warning system, blind spot monitoring and more. With all these features, it is easy to see why the CX-3 achieved a 5-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA.

Cargo and Storage Space

The CX-3 comes standard with a 60/40 split second row which allows it to achieve a full 44 and a half cubic feet of cargo volume when the seats are folded down. With the rear seats up, the CX-3 offers 12.4 cubic feet of cargo volume.

Features

We have told you about the CX-3’s performance and how safe and fuel efficient it is but drivers will really love this extensive list of available comfort and convenience features. Like many Mazda models, the CX-3 has available goodies like push button start, 7-inch full-color touch screen monitor, integrated Pandora radio, USB audio input, BluetoothR audio and hands free phone and a voice command infotainment system to list a few.

Overall, the CX-3 continues Mazda’s tradition of making fun to drive (zoom-zoom), fuel efficient and safe vehicles. Stop by Premier Mazda in Kansas City today to test drive your very own 2019 Mazda CX-3.
