OK I want one! 4 wheel drive, 2.0tdi 140bhp. Its 159g/km CO2 slips in under the all important 160g level that is now all important to companies (earlier this year the rules changed so companies can write off the cost of company cars below 160g/km against corporate tax TWICE as quickly at 20%) Also many companies give a big discount to chooser users in their monthly payments if they pick a vehicle below 160g/km. 1st port of call would be the local remapper, extra 30bhp for £200.

So how does it look in Black? Its difficult to get the scale of it, looks fairly compact, easy to find a parking slot, can in future you take some pictures with people sitting in it? and perhaps some parked next to another car like a Focus so we can see some scale?
Carrying ability is often important in this type of vehicle, perhaps a shot of a case in the boot?

Okay I don't. I really am not interested it looks awful the name is horrendous and thats that. And anyway with it being a 4X4 type of car it's fuel economy isn't going to be too impressive.

I believe it's "on-demand", so the 4wd versions are effectively 2wd unless wheel-spin is detected. Which means fuel consumption should be close to the Golf and Octavia on which its based.

Official figures for both 140bhp and 170bhp 2.0tdi version with 4 wheel drive is 46.3mpg combined at 159 g/km CO2. How can that be described as bad?

    Entry-level diesel MPV shares its three-cylinder engine with Mini but, due to long gearing, lacks the authoritative punch of a convincing premium product

    Elegant, alluring and with some welcome improvements, but not good enough to lead the class

    Hushed, flexible and remarkable value for money. Arguably more fit-for-purpose than any other ‘S’.

    The Mazda CX-3 has style and substance, and deserves consideration for anyone wanting a compact urban SUV. Here’s hoping Mazda gets the price and equipment right
