Mazda's smallest SUV is also its coolest looking. Inside and out, the CX-3 is sort of like a tamer version of the Juke. It has a more universally appealing design -- everyone I showed it to loved it -- and it's still sporty and aggressive. Similarly, the CX-3 is responsive and fun with nice steering but feels less lively and bouncy than the Juke. Basically, it has a similar flavor but is just a touch mellower.
