It seems like everybody is onboard the crossover train right now and while it is true that the demand for crossovers has been increasing these few years, it does not mean that all crossover models would make it big.
Despite everything that the Mazda CX-3 has to offer, Mazda only managed to sell about 16,000 units of the vehicle. It did better than 2016 but it was still far from what Mazda was expecting from their compact crossover model.
The Mazda CX-3 was offered with a 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine. That combine with the design and the flexibility of the cargo area made many believe that the CX-3 was going to make it. Of course, at the end of the day, Mazda still has the Mazda CX-5 and Mazda CX-9 to depend on but this shows that it does not mean that all crossovers will do well in the current market.
