The Pre-Owned Mazda CX-3 in Kelowna, BC: Why Is This Compact Crossover So Fun to Drive?

(Posted on Dec 24, 2020 at 03:00PM by Josh Lew)
mazda cx-3 for sale in okanagan bcThe Mazda CX-3 came onto the scene in 2016. Virtually every review since then has praised the small crossover as the most fun to drive in its class. What is behind this compliment? 

The Mazda CX-3 relies on a 2.0L Skyactiv I-4 engine that produces between 146 and 148 horsepower. All model years have a finely-tuned suspension, traction control, and either front or i-Activ all-wheel drive. The powertrain includes a six-speed automatic transmission with manual mode. 

These features provide impressive driveability, while allowing owners to personalize their behind-the-wheel experience. Models from 2019 and later have even more, including G-Vectoring Control. This unique system uses sensors to send torque to different wheels in response to forces produced on curves and corners. 

If you want to see for yourself what is inspiring all the "fun-to-drive" reviews, contact our Kelowna, BC dealership to inquire about the availability of the Mazda CX-3.
