2016 Mazda CX-3

Many competing subcompact crossovers end up limited on either style or substance, but the 2016 Mazda CX-3 had good looks, nimble handling, and a well-equipped cabin. With seating for up to five, this crossover is an excellent addition to a small family, and its remarkable fuel economy will help keep it well within the family budget. 2016 Mazda CX-3 drivers can look forward to:


  • Standard Tech Features: The basic 2016 Mazda CX-3 Sport trim comes standard with amenities like a rearview camera, Bluetooth for phone and audio, push-button ignition, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, and Pandora and Aha radio compatibility.
  • Available Upgrades: The 2016 Mazda CX-3 Touring and 2016 Mazda CX-3 Grand Touring trims step things up with heated mirrors and front seating, leatherette (Touring) or leather and suede (Grand Touring) upholstery, a seven-speaker Bose stereo system, satellite-linked navigation, and much more.

  • Under the Hood: The 2016 Mazda CX-3 features a 2.0L four-cylinder with 146 hp and 146 lb.-ft. of torque, paired with a six-speed automatic transmission (paddle shifters are available on the 2016 Mazda CX-3 Grand Touring trim). Each 2016 Mazda CX-3 FWD model earns an EPA-estimated 35 mpg/highway and 29 mpg/city for 31 mpg/combined.

2016 Mazda CX-5

The 2016 Mazda CX-5 is as practical as it is spacious, with fuel economy numbers and features that make it one of the most competitive crossovers of its size. This five-passenger crossover gets a size upgrade from the 2016 Mazda CX-3 and also receives a larger engine (as well as an engine upgrade option), giving drivers a more SUV-like crossover without compromising on agility.


  • Engine Options: The standard 2.0L four-cylinder is capable of 155 hp and 150 lb.-ft. of torque, earning up to 35 mpg/highway and 26 mpg/city. Upgrading to the 2.5L four-cylinder brings the specs up to 184 hp and 185 lb.-ft. of torque, with FWD models earning 33 mpg/highway and 26 mpg/city.
  • All-Wheel Drive: Enjoy the added control that comes with power and torque going to all four wheels of your crossover with Mazda’s available all-wheel drive system (on 2.5L engine models). Engaging automatically when it senses lost traction, this system brings power and confidence behind the wheel without sacrificing fuel economy like other AWD systems.
  • Tech Amenities: Each of the 2016 Mazda CX-5 models comes standard with iPod/USB audio compatibility, Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, power accessories, and cruise control. Upgrading to the larger engine adds on a 7-inch touchscreen interface with multi-function controller, SMS text messaging capabilities, a rearview camera, and more. A nine-speaker Bose stereo system and navigation are available as well.

2016 Mazda CX-9

The 2016 Mazda CX-9 is the first time the nearly decade-old crossover has received a significant redesign, and it looks eager to show drivers just how much it has improved over its predecessors. Mazda has promised better performance, improved tech and comfort features, and an overall refined driving experience, and we think it delivers. The latest update let the 2016 Mazda CX-9 shed a couple hundred pounds yet put it on a longer wheelbase to give rear passengers more room to get comfortable.

Features like a Bose Centerpoint 12-speaker stereo system and the available navigation system are all seamlessly integrated into the dash, their location designed for easy reach just like the gear shift or emergency brake.
