MAZDA CX-3 Safety

Is the 2020 MAZDA CX-3 a Safe Car?

Standard safety features for the CX-3 include hill-launch assist, front, front-side and side-curtain airbags, Advanced Smart City Brake Support, electronic traction and stability control, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and a tire-pressure monitor.

The independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gives the Mazda CX-3 top marks in every crash-test category and awarded it a Top Safety Pick rating. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration also gives the CX-3 five stars overall but issued a "safety concern" warning in the side-impact test. Apparently, due to the intrusion of the left rear door during the side-impact test, the interior door panel struck the torso of the rear passenger dummy, causing rapid lower spine acceleration. In certain conditions exceeding 82g's, there is a higher likelihood of thoracic injury.

Competition

2020 MAZDA CX-3 vs the competition

2020 Honda HR-V -- The HR-V delivers a softer ride. It also has more ground clearance and a larger, more functional cabin, although the HR-V's interior isn't as handsome and its acceleration not as quick.

2020 Toyota C-HR -- The C-HR offers similar power and fuel economy figures, but a bit more front-seat legroom and a much more expressive exterior. However, the C-HR doesn't offer an AWD option.

2020 Hyundai Kona -- The Kona offers more interior room, more features and a more powerful turbocharged engine. It also comes standard with a 10-year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty.

Used Mazda CX-5 -- A used 2015-2018 Mazda CX-5 will give you the same sporty Mazda ride and look, but in a vehicle that's better suited to light off-road use. The CX-5 also delivers more interior and cargo space and, on models with the 2.5-liter engine, considerably more power.
