Since the Mazda CX-3 first arrived just a few short years ago, it’s taken the compact crossover market by storm with its drivability, overall good looks, and interior comfort and style. The Mazda CX-3 has always boasted superior handling, gorgeous exterior design, and practicality. And this latest model sticks to all that and more

The 2018 Mazda CX-3 remains largely unchanged from the previous year, which is definitely not a bad thing. However, this is a very special edition now available as Mazda celebrates 50 years being in Canada.

To help celebrate Mazda’s 50thAnniversary, a special edition 2018 Mazda CX-3 is now available. On top of all the already amazing features found in Mazda’s compact crossover, this CX-3 50th also comes equipped with a specially tune Bose stereo system, leatherette-trimmed upholstery, advanced keyless entry system, and standard i-ACTIV AWD.

The regular 2018 Mazda CX-3 is just as appealing with its long list of features and amenities. It doesn’t matter which CX-3 model you decide to drive home with, you’re going to get their fabulous SKYACTIV-G 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that’s good for 146 horsepower and the same amount of torque. There are two drivetrain options: FWD and AWD, which are optional for all trim levels. However, only the base FWD GX can be paired with a 6-speed manual, the other trims only have the SKYACTIV-Drive 6-speed automatic.
