The 2018 Mazda CX-3 must come without larger changes compared to the existing model. This small crossover will certainly continue to be among the leaders in the sector. It was revealed in November 2014, while the production version came next year, as a 2016 year model. It trips on the very same platform as Mazda 2 and shares the majority of its parts with this little hatchback. Considering that this will be the third year of production, we are quite sure that the company won’t present larger changes. This excellent crossover is still very fresh and it should remain in the exact same form for another couple of years. Since it probably will not feature any larger change, it will come in normal time, which is someplace late in the year.
