      Is there really room between the CX3 and CX5?

      Its looks only ok. Not a fan of the huge amounts of plastic cladding and what's with the weird name?

      Oh, I wants, but it really just looks like a lowered CX-5.

      The CX-5 replacement will be slightly larger as well. I believe we will see the CX3 dropped in North America.

      Seems to do battle with Mazda's existing lineup. I don't get it.

      You can see the dimensions compared with the CX-3 and CX-5 about halfway down the page on this link.

      The interior is nice but that's about it. Way too much cladding.

      It seems to fit in with how things are going. Honda just slotted in another model with the Passport. I don't think they're too worried about daylight between models.:

      Chevy has the Equinox, which overlaps with the Blazer, which overlaps with the Traverse, which overlaps with the Tahoe
      Ford: Escape<Edge<(Bronco?)<Explorer<Expedition
      Etc, etc. And that doesn't count their tiny and XXL models.

      This thing is right up my alley. For my needs the CX-3 is too small and underpowered and the CX-5 is too big. I think it's gorgeous. Mazda is killing it with their designs right now, inside and out. I will never understand why they don't sell better than they do.

      I drew this conclusion, hence the thread title, but the CX-30 looks to be the Mazda3 + stilts & cladding

      in the same way the Crosstrek is the Impreza + stilts & cladding

      They went way overboard on the cladding, sheesh!

      I think of this as the Mazda3 hatch where - maybe - you can actually see out the back.

      I'm interested...but I'm also sure that all of the brand advancements will eventually translate to the CX-5.

      The CX-3 going away replaced with CX-30 suggests the CX-3 has terrible owner satisfaction.
      Why else change the model name for something so similar?
      Quality/refinement issues?
      I remember looking at early used ones (on line) briefly and noticed a trend of water in the lights.

      Probably, but I don’t want a pair of CX-5’s either.

      It’s a tough choice between this and the 3 for me, providing it does make it stateside.

      It's a crosstrek competitor... so it's supposed to go soft-roading. What do you want? Lots of scratches in the paint or replace some plastic trim here and there

      I think some of you forget how tiny the CX-3 is. There's plenty enough of a gap for this in the lineup.
