The battle for top subcompact crossover SUV is just starting to heat up in the auto industry and there are some impressive vehicles vying for the top spot. This specific vehicle segment is becoming quite a popular pick for many drivers because of their ability to offer the versatility they are looking for in a new ride.

The start of this SUV comparison shows you the difference between their engine size, horsepower and estimated fuel economy ratings. As you can see in the chart above, not only does the engine under the hood of the  Mazda CX-3 offer more power than the  Buick Encore, but it also gives you more miles per gallon, which can help save you money at the pump. Mazda’s innovative SKYACTIV technology is the key to the CX-3’s efficient performance.

As the list of subcompact crossovers continues to grow, it becomes even more difficult to choose the best one. While the Mazda CX-3 may be a newcomer in this popular new vehicle segment, it is the best choice for the driver that’s looking for sharp style, exciting performance and outstanding fuel efficiency.

From its standard rearview camera and Bluetooth connectivity, to its available leather upholstery and dual-zone automatic climate control, the new Buick is certainly impressive. But as we take a closer look at the Mazda CX-3, we quickly notice the features list is very similar to the Buick Encore, the only difference is that the starting price of the Buick is thousands of dollars more.
