Small crossover SUVs are flooding the market right now, and the Mazda CX-3 has no shortage of competitors.
The Jeep Renegade starts at a lower price in theory, but comparably equipped to a CX-3 is more expensive.
The Renegade has off road cred, but also a 9-speed automatic that we don't care much for.
The Fiat 500X is related closely to the Renegade, but is packaged poorly for passengers.
The Honda HR-V is a likely competitor to the CX-3 and has more utility, but is slower to drive.
The Chevy Trax is OK, provided you stick to front-drive.
The Crosstrek only comes with standard all-wheel-drive, and may be a better all-around car, but it starts at about $1,000 more than the CX-3.
