Compare the 2017 Subaru Crosstrek vs the 2017 Mazda CX-3 for Your Orlando Commute

Enjoy remarkable efficiency and style during your Lakeland and Kissimmee adventures when you choose a fun crossover vehicle! Here at Peacock Subaru, we believe this area remains one that the Subaru brand excels in, whether you choose the Subaru Crosstrek or any of the dynamic vehicles in the new model lineup. We recognize that not only do Orlando drivers compare the Crosstrek to the other SUVs in our inventory, but you also want to compare it to the competition. When compared to popular crossovers like the Mazda CX-3, you'll quickly see where the Subaru Crosstrek stands apart from the competition. Explore the model in detail when you come to our Subaru dealership to test drive the new Crosstrek!

See How the New Crosstrek and New CX-3 Models Compare in Performance

You can experience sporty handling and excellent fuel economy when you choose to make a crossover vehicle your daily driver. All of our 2017 Subaru Crosstrek models come fitted with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder Subaru Boxer engine, with either a five-speed manual transmission or Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) that lends the model the feel of an automatic. With the CVT-equipped Crosstrek models, you can still take power into your fingertips with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters that enable you to optimize your driving experience. In comparison with the Subaru crossover, the 2017 Mazda CX-3 only offers one powertrain for Orlando commuters, and that's a 2.0-liter four-cylinder paired to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Additionally, the new Subaru Crosstrek comes built around the brand's incomparable Symmetrical All Wheel Drive (AWD) system. The new Mazda CX-3 simply cannot compare to the exceptional traction control and efficiency provided by the standard AWD system of each new Crosstrek. The 2017 CX-3 models come standard with Front Wheel Drive (FWD), and if you want the grip and control of an AWD system, you'll have to pay more money up front. A symmetrical AWD system does not come as a standard or available feature for the Mazda crossover, giving the Crosstrek yet another edge over the competition.

Compare the Efficiency and Towing Capacity of Both Popular Crossover Vehicles

The Subaru Crosstrek and AWD-equipped Mazda CX-3 receive similar fuel economy ratings, with the Mazda getting up to 27 mpg city and the Subaru getting up to 26 mpg city, when equipped with the model's CVT. This trend flips when comparing highway fuel economy, with the Crosstrek earning up to 33 mpg highway while the CX-3 only earns up to 32 mpg highway. You'll see that both options provide you with impressive fuel economy for the crossover SUV segment. If you're interested in towing a small trailer with recreational gear, the Subaru crossover serves as the better pick. You can tow up to 1,500 pounds in the Crosstrek, unlike the Mazda crossover that's not rated to tow anything. We recognize that many drivers in our community like to head to the coast on the weekends for some fun outdoor recreation, and we believe the Subaru Crosstrek comes perfectly-equipped to keep up with your adventures.
