Crossover SUVs have been among the most popular vehicles out there in recent years. That means the marketplace is saturated with a vast number of different crossover SUV options. But, even so, not all crossovers are meant to satisfy all drivers. Some drivers are looking for a smaller and more efficient crossover, while others are looking for something with more in terms of cargo capacity. The Mazda CX-3 is the entry into the stellar Mazda crossover SUV lineup, and as you can see in this 2021 Mazda CX-3 vs 2021 Toyota RAV4 comparison, it still can play ball with a bigger crossover SUV.

We tip our hat to Toyota for offering an impressive vehicle in the RAV4. But we love the styling cues of the Mazda CX-3, which, like all Mazda vehicles, feels like a work of art. With it being a bit smaller than the RAV4, the CX-3 allows for a lower price tag as well as a bit better fuel economy when navigating the city streets. Plus, you’ll get to enjoy Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration as a standard feature in both vehicles on their respective seven-inch infotainment screens.
The 2021 Mazda CX-3 also offers the MAZDA CONNECT™ Infotainment System as a standard feature, which consists of voice command functionality, information on what is being broadcast through the radio, Aha™ internet radio integration, Pandora® internet radio integration, SMS text message audio delivery and reply, and more.
