My husband and I recently took a vacation to California for my 30th birthday. The trip was awesome and we got the chance to cruise the city in the 2017 Mazda CX-3, and this cute little number did not disappoint us on our adventure.
I had to get used to the way California drivers roll because it is very different from driving around in Chicago. The speed limit is much faster than Chicago. Thank goodness the Mazda CX-3 had the amazing safety features that I love. I am always a big fan of Mazda’s lane departure warning on these cars. Trust me this came in handy driving in a new state. This car made sure I was on top staying in my lane!
Did I mention that the traffic in California is like crazy? I mean every time we went somewhere the traffic would seem fine, then 10 minutes later we are coming to a halt. Thank goodness for the Smart Brake Support system that helps detect objects ahead of you and warns you that you need to brake. This was amazing because the traffic is really unpredictable and it helped me know when I needed to slow down to stop. Thanks Mazda! Also the distance recognition system is amazeballs! Like this car tells you when you are too close to another car! It lights up and tells you that you what distance you should be at. This is really a smart car!
So lets talk about the inside of this car. My husband is no small guy, from the outside the Mazda CX3 looks small but let me tell you it was spacious. The interior of the CX-3 is super sporty. It really brings out the character the car.
So I know you are probably thinking, how much is this car? Well the MSRP is $27,266 not bad at all! It gets up to 34 MPG Highway and 31 city. This is a really good deal if you ask me. I couldn’t have been happier cruising around LA in this sweet ride!
Let me know what you think!
