Improving the Driving Experience in the 2020 Mazda CX-3

Although the engine offers an impressive amount of functionality, Mazda added several options to enhance the ride further. Despite the single trim, those interested can opt to add the Predictive i-ACTIV AWD®, which is ideal for places like Scranton that experience road condition changes year-round. Even with the option, the strong 27 city and 32 highway MPG rate holds up to other front-wheel drive models on the market. Especially when on the open road, the standard set of i-ACTIVSENSE® safety features come with Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go.
