Driving: Driving performance is one of the CX-3’s strong suits, and it's one of the most enjoyable compact crossovers to drive in its class. It may not win any races, but the CX-3 feels quick. Handling is sharp and responsive, with excellent steering feedback and good stopping power, making it a joy to drive when the road gets twisty and easy to maneuver in the city.
Comfort: The front seats are supremely comfortable, with a firm back and good lateral support during enthusiastic driving. The rear seats are a bit tight, but the outboard seats are plush, and the seatback isn’t too upright. The CX-3 was already quieter than many of its competitors, and with the improvements made to the 2018 model, this has only improved.
Interior: The front doors open wide, making getting in and out easy. Headroom is good, aided by the low seat height, and even the rear seat offers good headroom, although the legroom in the back is pretty tight. Materials are among the best in the class, which gives the small CX-3 a premium feel, especially in the top-level Grand Touring with its synthetic suede trim.
Utility: The cargo area in the CX-3 is relatively small, with just 12.4 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats. With the seats folded, it does expand considerably, but the seats don’t fold completely flat. Up front, there isn’t much storage space—instead of a center armrest bin there’s just a tiny square cubby.
