Relax driving with the CX-3

This writer got to test the 2017 Mazda CX-3 2.0 AWD and believe me this writer felt at ease. The front cabin had adequate elbow, leg and head room and the cargo space was deep enough for shoppers and could even fit an appliance. The cabin insulation can keep the decibel, on a low level while the entertainment system wired to 6-speakers and a subwoofer with amplifier provided concert like sound. The auto climate control air-conditioning with single zone, kept all passengers calm and comfortable.

The 2017 Mazda CX-3 2.0 AWD this writer tested was pulled by a 1998cc liter 4-inline DOHC 16 valve SkyActiv-G petrol engine that could boost a maximum power of 148ps/6000rpm and a maximum torque of 192Nm/2000rpm linked to a 6-speed automatic transmission with sport mode and paddle shifters. The steering response was terrific; it was quick to turn and was ideal to avoid collision with those PUJs, who simply just, halts on the roadway and on demand, when they encounter a possible passenger...anywhere. Very nimble, hardly would it lean, more so on tight turns and the vehicle handled well, even on straights, at extra-legal speeds with firm suspension and with a DSC (dynamic stability control) on standby. To put the vehicle to a halt the front ventilated disc brakes and rear disc brakes with ABS (anti-lock brake system) and EBD (electronic brake force distribution) does the job, at first act. The i-Activ All-Wheel Drive system, constantly adjusted to any type of road condition, whether in wet or dry surface. During the duration of the test drive the AVT A98 dashcam in full HD was responsible for the documentation. The 2017 Mazda CX-3 2.0, comes in three variants to fit your needs and budget but this writer got to test the top variant and enjoyed every time it was on the road.
