2019 Mazda CX-3 vs 2019 Nissan Kicks

2019 Mazda CX-3 vs 2019 Nissan Kicks

The 2019 Mazda CX-3 is a peculiar model. As a subcompact SUV, its goal is to bridge the gap for drivers who aren’t big on the cargo space of sedans but find many SUVs and crossovers too big and/or inefficient. However, this particular class of vehicle certainly has found its place in the automotive market with similar models now starting to appear out of the woodwork, such as the 2019 Nissan Kicks.

In truth, the 2019 Mazda CX-3 doesn’t have a direct parallel to a Nissan SUV or crossover model. The Nissan Rogue Sport is just a touch bigger and the Nissan Kicks is just a touch smaller. Therefore, with the 2019 Nissan Kicks holding a small lead in terms of pricing, we wanted to see how the 2019 Mazda CX-3 fared in all other areas of comparison. It’s the 2019 Mazda CX-3 vs the 2019 Nissan Kicks!
