2018 Mazda CX-3 vs. 2018 Toyota C-HR

Crossover SUVs are great. They are more practical than sedans, hatchbacks, or trucks, more stylish than most other vehicles, and they don't drive or feel like they're too big and bulky. Often times, a full-size SUV feels too much like a truck and it can be more difficult to handle. The Mazda CX-3 is the smallest crossover in Mazda's lineup. This sleek, strong crossover is a great ride, but how does it fare against the competition?
