You want to join the growing army of people moving into small crossover SUVs, but you aren’t necessarily the sensible family type. You want something a little more style-focused. What do you buy?

2015 Mazda CX-3 Maxx (FWD) Review

Ground clearance is too low in comparison with HR-V & Subaru XV. No fun in this respect. Really would like to it up to 215 with teflon spacer and thereafter 235/70/R16 tyres. Dashboard level should be higher & rounder towards the windscreen. Performance is good and sport button is interesting. I was looking for a compact SUV that provides good space and great technology...

This along with great resale value, makes them a popular choice. So when we decided to purchase a small SUV, the recently released CX3 was at the top of our test-drive list...
