Vehicle Dynamics


Mazda CX-3One of the main things that sets the 2019 Mazda CX-3 apart is its human-centered engineering that’s designed to automatically adapt to changing road conditions to deliver a ride that feels relaxed and effortless. Thanks to features like G-Vectoring Control, greater stability is achieved while maneuvering over wet, snowy, or rough surfaces.

Through adapting instead of overpowering, the Mazda CX-3 uses less energy to achieve the same results, meaning a more comfortable and efficient driving experience.

Travel Farther

While the 2019 Mazda CX-3 gas mileage means you’ll be tracking more time on the road with fewer stops at the pump, there’s also a few simple steps you can take as a driver to help you go the distance including:

  • Check Your Tire Pressure. Under- and over-inflated tires can significantly affect your fuel economy as the engine has to work harder to accelerate and slow down. To be mitigate this issue, make it a point to check your tire’s PSI levels at least once per month and have them rotated every 5,000-7,000 miles.
  • Change Your Oil. One of the simplest and most effective ways to keep your CX-3 operating at peak condition is by changing its oil and filter every 3,000-5,000 miles. Dirty oil places extra burden on your engine, causing it to burn fuel faster.
  • Limit Extra Weight. While the CX-3 is great for loading up the family for a big weekend road trip, regularly driving around with excessive weight can have a significant effect on fuel economy. Drivers should also avoid towing anything above 2,000 lbs.

Your Mazda CX-3’s owner’s manual is a great resource to learn about proper maintenance along with tips on maintaining its everyday performance.
