2016 Mazda CX-3Palm Coast and Port Orange drivers looking for a compact crossover will be interested to hear that the 2016 Mazda CX-3 was named Yahoo’s Savvy Ride of the Year. They sought to find the new vehicle that best offers everything you need and still “deserves your hard-earned cash.” Here’s why they found their vehicle in the 2016 Mazda CX-3.

Smooth Ride

“The driving dynamics were typically Mazda; sporty without punishment.”

The team at Yahoo were chiefly impressed by the 2016 Mazda CX-3’s smooth but sporty drive. Each model is equipped with a 2.0L SKYACTIV-G 4-cylinder engine to provide up to 146 hp and 146 lb-ft of torque, and SKYACTIV-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission comes as standard. Palm Coast drivers will make up to 29 mpg in the city and 35 on the highway — incredible ratings for a crossover. There’s even an available i-ACTIV all-wheel-drive system to ensure reliable traction.

Outstanding Features

“At $27,000, the small SUV had every major tech feature — auto braking, lane departure warning, automatic cruise — of the SUVs that cost $10,000 more.”

The 2016 Mazda CX-3 starts at just $19,960, and comes with a rearview camera, four-speaker sound system, and Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity. However, Yahoo was blown away by value of the upper level Grand Touring model, which offers features such as Mazda radar cruise control with close proximity warning, dual-zone automatic climate control, and leather-trimmed seats as standard.

Upscale Interior

“Unlike the slightly cheaper Honda HR-V, the interior of the CX-3 didn’t feel like an economy-class downgrade.”

The 2016 Mazda CX-3 offers comfort and styling no matter your chosen model, a fact that the team at Yahoo quickly drew attention to. Both functional and indulgent, the interior is characterized by soft-touch surfaces that are highlighted by metallic or piano black accents. The dash is intuitively laid out, and the rear seat utilizes a folding mechanism in some trims that creates a near-flat load floor.

It’s No Wonder the CX-3 Was Named Yahoo’s Savvy Ride of the Year

Palm Coast and Port Orange drivers deserve the very best compact crossover around, and Yahoo has made it clear that their only choice is the 2016 Mazda CX-3. To take one out for a test drive, just come to the Are man she towards today.
