What cars have you checked out Monty, any decisions made yet.


Hi Dave.

No not yet. Have been looking at all the small suv's via 'what car'. All have they're good and bad points. The trouble is, I see something I like and it's either out of my price range or only available with a deisel engine. The nearest I can get to what I would like is the Hyundai Tucson 1.6 TGDi 2WD DCT Go SE Automatic, Petrol.

Then of course it's then a trip to hospital for surgery to get the wallet opened :D

I did look at a Hyundai Tucson and visited a dealer before deciding on a CX-3. It was soon after the new model had been released and trying to organise a test drive was like pulling teeth and I gave up. It is certainly at the top size wise of the small SUV category :-

Hyundai Tucson Length 4,475mm Width 1,849mm Height 1,651mm
Mazda CX-3 Length 4,275mm Width 1,765mm Height 1,535mm

For comparison with one in the next category :-

Mazda CX-5 Length 4,555mm Width 1,840mm Height 1,710mm

which is only 80mm longer

I reallly wanted a torque convertor type transmission and the idea of DCT on the Tucson was definitely a stumbling block. Perhaps a test drive might have changed my view, I will never know.

What makes me consider the Tucson is I had one hired out to me by Enterprise via my dealer for over a week (they covered the hire) while my then CX-3 was out of action . Going by the basic alloys I would say It was a base model diesel auto. Apart from the diesel side of it, which I must admit performed really well, but was a bit smelly at times, I was impressed. The auto box was as smooth as silk and the cabin was very spacious and well equipped. Unfortunately I only got to drive it a couple of times on short journeys as the day they delivered it to the house I went down with the flu. Typical

It’s possibly the cleanest car on cold start due to that revving. It gets the cat up to temperature very quick.
