Which Mazda SUV is Right For Me?

The Mazda CX-3 – Sensible, Sporty, And Stylish

2020 Mazda CX-3 Near St. Paul

Thanks to its short, maneuverable profile, the Mazda CX-3 is the ideal SUV for city drivers. However, that’s not to say it skimps on the driving essentials for the open road. Equipped with 2.0L SKYACTIV®-G 4-cylinder engine tuned to 148 horsepower and available all-wheel drive, the Mazda CX-3 is every bit as adventurous as you.

The Mazda CX-30 – All-New And Ready To Impress

The all-new Mazda CX-30 is marginally more commodious than its well-established predecessor, which means it can take you and your passengers from downtown to the town over in more comfort. However, comparing the two in dimensions alone would not do this exciting new model its deserved justice. The Mazda CX-30 offers class-leading standard horsepower – 186 to be precise.

The Mazda CX-5 – Excellent In Everything

Entering the mid-size class, the two-row Mazda CX-5 is arguably the most versatile SUV of the collection. Standard performance numbers ring a similar tune to the CX-30, but the available 2.5T SKYACTIV®-G 4-cylinder engine endows the CX-5 with its most powerful drive-force ever. Very unlike the CX-30, however, CX-5 drivers can seat up to 104 cu-ft of passenger or 59.6 cu-ft of cargo behind the driver. Plus, it’s capable of towing, up to 2,000 lb.s when properly equipped.

For drivers who need to accommodate more family, more luggage, or more of both, the Mazda CX-9 will best suit your lifestyle. It’s the only three-row Mazda SUV with seating for up to 7, and it comes appropriately equipped with a turbocharged 4-cylinder for excellent pick-up. That power can be used to tow up to 3,5oo lbs. when properly equipped.
