The 2018 Mazda CX-3 and 2018 Honda HR-V are subcompact crossovers that are relatively new to the scene. Both debuted over the last few years as crossovers became the hottest thing since minivans.

They’re a great choice for those who need extra room for cargo, but not quite as much as what you’ll find in larger SUVs. A subcompact crossover’s smaller footprint also makes it ideal for those in urban areas where streets are congested and parking is tight. Let’s take a closer look at the Mazda CX-3 and Honda HR-V and see which of them is the best.
