Have to agree- the CX-3 was more fun to drive.....handled better and seemed quicker......but the HR-V is an all around better vehicle. Plus it's far more practical for a crossover.

BUT...the front seats were more comfy...
I found the front seats in the CX-3 too **** narrow.

*challenge.

It certainly does put Honda to shame in the IIHS crash test - both in the small overlap and side impact tests, as well as crash avoidance (in the U.S. at least). Look in particular at the B-pillar in the HRV side impact test, which only rates 'Acceptable'. Honda should hang its head in shame.

Interesting to compare notes with the views on the CX-3 forum.

Someone two blocks away had the only CX-3 in my neighborhood. It disappeared one day and in its place was a dealer's courtesy CX-3 that they ended up needing for 3+ weeks. When the courtesy CX-3 disappeared, the original CX-3 didn't come back -- a Mazda 3 did. It's amusing to think of what might have gone on there.

Had a Mazda 3 and I liked it fine. Had a sunroof, automatic wipers and a bunch of other extra features not found on the Honda. Drove nicely with plenty of zoom zoom but I still much prefer the HRV.

While I like the appearance of the CX-3 and its in-car gadgetry is great, it lacks the space of an SUV and the performance of a sporty saloon. For an exciting drive, look elsewhere. For usefulness try an HR-V. While not very powerful, the HR-V does what can be expected of a small SUV very well.

After personally looking at one at an auto show two weeks ago, I laughed when I opened the trunk.

You don't think I could put a full size washing machine in the back of a CX-3, LOL

Lmao, I don't think you fully got. In there either. I'd also warn about carbon monoxide, but I don't think there is space for the gas to get in...rofl

Actually, it fit totally in with space to spare (length wise), so I didn't drive with the gate open.
I just took the picture with it partially out so you can see how close the tolerances were (less than an a fraction of an inch either height or width)
