2019 BMW X2 vs. 2019 Mazda CX 3


Known for its strong performance and solid handling, BMW X2 is a fun to drive vehicle, with plenty of features to offer. On the other hand, Mazda CX 3 is known for sporty performance, but X2 offers additional passenger space and upgraded tech features. This post will compare these luxury models.

Design & Style

The Mazda CX-3 is a 5-seater model with standard cloth upholstery. There is enough space in the front seats, and sufficient side bolstering to keep you stable while turning. The rear seats are really cramped, and is better left for small-sized adults or kids. It has a sleek and modern cabin lined with top notch materials, but most rivals have a more upscale setting.

The 2019 BMW X2 is a perfect example of aesthetic appeal combined with functionality. 5 adults can easily find a place inside, with little to no discomfort on a long drive. The cabin is free any wind noise, while on the go. The interior is replete with high-end materials and some fancy trim pieces. You will not find a single evidence of hard plastics used inside.

Technology & Safety

The 2019 Mazda CX 3 comes standard with a Connect infotainment system featuring internet streaming services, Bluetooth and a 7-inch touch screen. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration are missing in the base model. You can take some time to learn the infotainment system, as there are multiple steps involved to access a few features. Every trim comes equipped with rear-cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking and a rearview.

The 2019 BMW X2 comes standard with an iDrive infotainment system featuring an Apple CarPlay smartphone integration. You can get good grasp on the system within the first use. The excellent graphics and highly responsive inputs make it easier to control. You can upgrade for features like twelve-speaker Harman Kardon surround sound system, push button start, Wi-Fi hot spot and wireless charging.


The 2019 Mazda CX-3 comes standard with a 4-cylinder engine that is capable of generating only 148 HP. It is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and feels underpowered in most driving situations. If you are seeking powerful acceleration, consider BMW X2 for its 228 HP powertrain that is suited for most conditions.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 BMW X2 is a good subcompact SUV, featuring luxurious cabin and thrilling performance. Its fuel efficiency and plenty of standard features make for a solid all-round vehicle. Shoppers looking for sufficient cargo space and high safety ratings might find X2, a better option than Mazda CX 3.
