2019 Mazda CX-3 Goes On Sale This Month For $20,390

Mazda recently introduced the 2019 CX-3 at the New York Auto Show and now the company has revealed the updated model will be priced from $20,390.

Set to go on sale in the United States later this month, the 2019 CX-3 is $280 more expensive than its predecessor. Despite the modest price increase, the model comes with a number of improvements including redesigned front seats, a newly standard electronic parking brake and a new rear armrest with integrated cup holders. The center console and center armrest have also been redesigned and Mazda says this results in “significantly greater storage space.”

Besides the interior updates, the 2019 CX-3 has a new grille, updated taillights and restyled wheels. There’s also higher quality materials and improved sound insulation.

CX-3 Sport

The entry-level CX-3 Sport comes equipped with fabric seats and a push-button ignition. Other features include a 7-inch Mazda Connect infotainment system, a rearview camera and Bluetooth connectivity. Buyers will also find 16-inch alloy wheels, two USB ports and power windows, locks and mirrors. There are also a handful of driver assistance systems including Smart City Brake Support, Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and a Direct Tire Pressure Monitoring System.

The $1,100 i-ACTIVSENSE Package builds on those safety features as it adds Advanced Smart City Brake Support with Pedestrian Detection, Smart Brake Support and Mazda Radar Cruise Control with a Stop and Go function. The package also adds automatic high beam headlights, a lane departure warning system, rain-sensing wipers and LED lighting units. Other notable additions include an automatic climate control system and an active driving display.

CX-3 Touring

The CX-3 Touring starts at $22,475 and comes equipped with LED headlights, heated side mirrors and 18-inch wheels. The model also has rain-sensing wipers and new piano black pillar accents.

The interior receives some upgrades as well as drivers will find a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an automatic climate control system and black leatherette seats. Rounding out the changes is a leather-wrapped shifter, heated front seats and a front passenger seat with a manual seat lifter.

The i-ACTIVSENSE Package is available for $1,000 and the model can also be equipped with the Touring Preferred Equipment Package for $1,410. The latter package adds a glass moonroof, a seven-speaker Bose audio system, a rear cargo cover and an improved audio system with HD radio and a four-month subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio.

CX-3 Grand Touring

The $25,745 CX-3 Grand Touring goes even further as the range-topping model has leather seats, a color head-up display, a power moonroof and LED lighting units. Other niceties include chrome exterior trim, GPS navigation and steering wheel mounted paddle shifters.

Buyers looking for even more luxury can order the $710 Grand Touring Premium Package which adds a six-way power driver’s seat with power adjustable lumbar support and a two-position memory system. The package also includes an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a heated steering wheel and a traffic sign recognition system.

Regardless of which model is selected, all US-spec CX-3’s are equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 148 hp (110 kW / 150 PS) and 146 lb-ft (197 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission which can be paired to an optional all-wheel drive system for an additional $1,400.

    Its nice. Surprising that Mazda doesn’t sell many tho. I’ve heard there pretty good cars.

  • Dr Strangefingger

    Think I’d rather have this than that ridiculously expensive 2 liter Velar… I’m failing to see just what more you get for the extra 50k$…

    • Harry_Wild

      It twice the size of a CX-3!

      • Dr Strangefingger

        And…

  • Harry Nimmergut

    This is the type of vehicle that I just don’t get. There is no cargo room behind the rear seat. Guess owners don’t need the rear seat and drive all the time with the rear seat down.

    • brn

      If you stop calling it a crossover and start calling it a hatchback, it makes a little more sense.

      • Shelby GT500

        Yes, especially considering its hatchback-like ground clearance…

  • Robert Murphy

    Think of it as the Miata of Crossover vehicles. Its not meant to be a cargo vehicle or minivan. They’re actually a blast to drive, which is the whole point. Kudos to Mazda.

      Mini Cooper without the prestige!

      • Enter Ranting

        Or the lousy quality.

  • ME

    It was a hard call when deciding on the CX-5 or this for a single person. Both are truly great cars that blow away the compeition. Although the CX-3 may have a little less trunk space, it is much nicer than the HR-V.

  • BlackPegasus

    Hopefully the new center armrest addresses the squeaky noises that came from the previous model’s cheap armrest. This is an attractive little ride but it lacks functionality. I can’t get much stuff in the back of this thing if I stopped at Cost Plus World Market or Pier 1 😃

    Mazda makes beautiful cars. But, to me, they are all let down by unexciting powertrains.

  • Harry_Wild

    The CX-3 could been a sport crossover if it has a higher performance powertrain option. Then 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 148 hp (110 kW / 150 PS) and 146 lb-ft (197 Nm) of torque crips the CX-3 IMO!

  • Nor Nijim

    mazda need to provide their vehicles with turbo…

  • Enter Ranting

    Mazda is the only car company making attractive vehicles with restrained, balanced and refined design. Everyone else is taking a page from the old Pontiac design book: fake scoops, strakes and grilles make a car exciting!
