Mazda CX-3 Sport vs Touring vs Grand Touring

The Mazda CX-3 is the smallest, most compact SUV model offered by Mazda, and the auto experts at Hall Mazda in Brookfield, Wisconsin, are here to show what makes it unique. The Mazda CX-3 features include but are not limited to unique style, surprisingly spacious cargo, a comfortable steering wheel, innovative dashboard design, additional standard equipment, and G-Vectoring Control to improve handling. The Mazda CX-3 also has three trim levels, and we’re here to discuss the differences between the options you have with the Mazda CX-3 Sport, Mazda CX-3 Touring, and Mazda CX-3 Grand Touring.


Choosing a new car model to drive is half the work; once you know which model is the right fit, you still have to select which trim or grade level fits your lifestyle. The differences include powertrain options, standard features, and design. It is important to know which model trims have the features and elements you want, and the Mazda CX-3 offers different standard features and engines for each. Take a look at our comparison chart below, and when you’re ready, call us to schedule a test drive at Hall Mazda in Brookfield, WI.

Differences Between the Mazda CX-3 Trim Levels

The chart above highlights some, but not all, of the most significant differences in each model, including price. The Mazda CX-3 Sport is the base model and therefore has the lowest price tag while the Mazda CX-3 Grand Touring is the premium trim model and has the highest price tag. All three Mazda CX-3 trim options come with the same SKYACTIV®-G2 2.0L DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine (148 horsepower, 146 torque). Fuel economy across the board is impressive with 34 hwy/25 city, but that is where the similarities end. You can notice the significant differences between these three options with a more in-depth look.

Each Mazda CX-3 trim model offers an impressive and long list of standard equipment, but depending on your lifestyle and needs, you have your pick on how advanced you want to go. If you’re interested in heated seats and side mirrors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and automatic headlights and climate control, then investing in the CX-Touring or Grand Touring will do you well. For even more features like Smart Brake Support, advanced LED backlights and headlights, Mazda Radar Cruise Control, and HD and SiriusXM Satellite radio, go all the way with the Mazda CX-3 Grand Touring. If all of those sound fine, but are not necessary for you at this time, save some extra dollars and stick to the Mazda CX-3 Sport trim.
