PostHeaderIcon Best Used 2016 SUV for Fuel Economy

The market trend is quickly shifting from sedans to crossovers and SUVs. However, SUVs have two major cons when compared to their segment counterparts – high retail price and poor fuel economy. Even though they are a practical choice thanks to additional cabin and cargo space, it’s a little difficult for everyone to afford an SUV. So why not go for a used SUV instead? You don’t take the depreciation hit that first owner does, and since SUVs are built to last a lifetime, you can get an almost-new SUV at half the original price.

Now that we’ve planted this seed in your head, let’s have a look at the best used SUVs from 2016 with high fuel efficiency.

PostHeaderIcon 10 Best Handling Crossovers on the Market

Crossovers are vehicles designed to look like they can go off-road, but really be at their best on the road. Sure, some can do light off-roading, but realistically you won’t want to stray too far from the blacktop or the occasional bumpy gravel backroad.

To this end it’s not trivial to know which of these 4×4-aping high riders are best out on the open (and sometimes twisty) road, since it’s where they will spend most of their time. But don’t go thinking that they are on par with more conventional car shapes, because their higher center of gravity and usually higher mass will affect handling.

Safety is at the top of buyers’ lists these days, but what many don’t think about when browsing lists of cars rated with safety stars is that good, predictable road manners and sharp handling are one of the biggest safety features a car can have, since they allow the driver to avoid crashing in the first place.

And while crossovers may give occupants a feeling of extra safety when they’re on board, their poor road manners bring this into question.

Here’s a list of the 10 best handling high-riding vehicles ever made.

PostHeaderIcon Mazda CX-3

The subcompact crossover segment is the fastest growing segment currently. Crossovers are turning out to be the evolved form of sedans, with more and more people opting for cars with raised stance and an SUV look. It looks like Mazda has taken a note of the same and has finally launched the refreshed CX-3, three years after its launch, to rake in a bigger share of the pie. After selling an average of 1500 units per month since its inception, the car was in desperate need of a refresh to give that number a boost. Despite being a bang-for-the-buck car, the CX-3 never brought volumes for Mazda. Can changes for the 2019 model year brighten its fortunes?

PostHeaderIcon Best SUVs Under $20,000

One of the most difficult questions to answer in the auto industry these days doesn’t involve supercars, luxury cars, or even premium cars. It involves crossovers and SUVs, specifically the question of which is the best of its kind among those priced at a certain cost point. In this case, our cost point is $20,000, which means that a lot of today’s compact crossovers are involved in this difficult, if not impossible, discussion. And like every question posed in this business, answers vary depending on who you ask. In our case, ask us which are the best SUVs under $20,000, and these are our answers.

PostHeaderIcon Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 Mazda CX-3

Mazda updated the CX-3 for the 2019 model year just a couple of years after its initial debut. It wasn’t an update to bring a plethora of new design cues, though. It was more about addressing what Mazda didn’t do right the first time. As such, it got some new technology, like an electronic parking brake, a new armrest for rear passengers, more comfortable seats, and some revisions under the metal too. Sure, it doesn’t really look different, but it’s still worthy of some time well spent on your desktop if you’re a fan of Mazda’s little crossover. As such, we’ve hand-picked a few wallpapers and made them available just for you.

After a lot of waiting, here it is folks: the 2016 Mazda CX-3.

When you’re Mazda, and you’ve already stepped into the compact and midsize crossover market, you might as well go all in and take a piece of the subcompact crossover market too. That’s exactly why Mazda decided to release the Mazda CX-3 – an SUV that looks more like slightly larger and jacked up Mazda 3 5-Door that the other CX-models. As expected, the CUV has a detailed exterior that is a continuation of the KODO Soul of Motion design language and an interior that is similar to that of its bigger brethren. Inside you’ll find stadium seating, a large passenger compartment (for a subcompact) and engaging ergonomics. Under the hood, a Skyactiv, 2.0-liter four-cylinder sends power to a six-speed automatic. Front-wheel drive is a standard feature, while all-wheel drive is an option. On top of the beautiful and functional cabin, the CX-3 also comes with a decent list of active and passive safety features that are common in the market.

The CX-3 went on sale in August of 2015 as a 2016 model and so far seems to be performing reasonably well. With seating for five and the ability to pull 35 mph, the only thing (aside from styling) that sets it apart from the CX-5 is the starting price of $19,960 – about $2,000 cheaper than its bigger brother. With that said, the CX-3 is a sporty little crossover and looks to work well for smaller families or those who don’t need to haul a ton of heavy cargo. So, let’s take a closer look at the CX-3 and all of the specifics that surround Mazda’s newest crossover.

Update 6/6/2016: Mazda has released pricing for the 2017 Mazda CX-3. Check the Prices section below for all the details.

PostHeaderIcon Mazda CX3 Review

Building crossover vehicles comes much more naturally to Mazda than SUVs. The company got out of the compact-truck game long ago, and its first SUV was the Ford Escape-based Tribute. As car-based crossovers became more popular, Mazda applied its sporty-car expertise to the template and the results have been impressive. The CX-5 and CX-7 blend the fun-to-drive aspects of Mazda’s sedans with the all-weather confidence and utility of SUVs to great effect.

Scaling things down doesn’t hurt the formula at all. Compact crossovers are currently where it’s at, marketing-wise, so Mazda has taken things down a notch with the introduction of the CX-3 for 2016. As the name suggests, it fits into the lineup below the CX-5, and offers nimbler reflexes and a more affordable package that doesn’t feel cheap. Less weight and more compact dimensions are the quickest ways to improved handling, and the CX-3 delivers. It’s probably the closest to “fun to drive” that a crossover’s going to get this side of the Nissan Juke NISMO.

PostHeaderIcon Mazda CX-3 – Driven

There’s no doubt that subcompact enthusiasts were severely disappointed when Mazda announced that it had no immediate plans of bringing the next-gen 2016 Mazda2 to the U.S. Fortunately, there’s another viable option for passionate small-car fans that doesn’t involve stepping foot into a Scion dealership (where the new 2015 Mazda 2 sedan is sold as the 2016 Scion iA). Meet the 2016 Mazda CX-3. Based on the same platform as the Mazda2, the CX-3 will target younger buyers with an active lifestyle, with its taller ride height, added interior space and optional all-wheel drive.

Mazda’s answer to the growing number of subcompact crossovers, the CX-3 will be competing in a red-hot segment that Mazda believes is “set to explode” in coming years with some of these new mini-utes already on sale. For Mazda, the new CX-3 adds to a solid lineup of CUVs that now includes the aged-yet-proven mid-size CX-9 and the model that can easily be credited with helping to spark the brand’s recent renaissance, the compact CX-5.

With the 2016 CX-3 not expected to go on sale until mid-August, vehicles like the Jeep Renegade, Fiat 500X and Honda HR-V have a significant head start, but I recently had the chance to sample the new CUV along the exciting roads of Southern California to see how much “zoom-zoom” Mazda can inject into a size- and value-driven segment.
