These days, more manufacturers are producing entries in the burgeoning subcompact crossover SUV segment. The 2016 Chevrolet Trax and 2016 Mazda CX-3 both provide strong fuel economy, available all-wheel drive, and confident performance behind the wheel. However, the Chevrolet model promises a number of additional benefits sure to make it a more appealing option. See how these models match up to one another, and if you like the 2016 Chevrolet Trax, then come find it at Tom Gill Chevrolet, serving Cincinnati drivers at our dealership in Florence, KY.

Passenger and Cargo Space

Both vehicles provide seating for up to five passengers and extra cargo room when you need it. For the extra room you need in a smaller package, you’re likely to appreciate the larger interior volume and cargo area in the 2016 Chevrolet Trax.

  • Chevrolet Trax: Total interior volume is a spacious 111.5 cubic feet, giving everyone in the car enough elbow and legroom. Behind the rear seat, you’ll have a spacious 18.5 cubic feet. Fold down the bench seat, and you’ll get even more room, coming in at a total of 48.4 cubic feet.
  • Mazda CX-3: The 2016 Mazda CX-3’s total interior volume is a mere 100.0 cubic feet, and there’s only 12.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat. Even if you fold down the rear seat, you’ll only get a maximum of 44.5 cubic feet.

Safety Features

These crossover SUVs come equipped with standard anti-lock brakes, driver and passenger airbags, traction and stability control, a rearview camera, and an in-car vehicle communications and assistance telematics system in case of a collision or other emergency. Unlike the 2016 Mazda CX-3, though, the 2016 Chevrolet Trax also gets standard front knee airbags and rear side impact airbags, providing an added cushion in case of a collision.

Warranties and Roadside Assistance

Whether you choose to purchase the 2016 Chevrolet Trax or the 2016 Mazda CX-3, you can look forward to three years or 36,000 miles of coverage from a bumper-to-bumper limited warranty, as well as five years or 60,000 miles of coverage from a powertrain/drivetrain limited warranty.

The 2016 Chevrolet Trax beats out the 2016 Mazda CX-3, though, with a five-year/60,000 mile roadside assistance program, beating out the Mazda model’s three-year/36,000-mile roadside assistance program.
