The challenge: to build a car that can be used anywhere, in any way, to support creative, individualistic lifestyles. The result: Mazda CX-3. Finding inspiration in the essential values people seek in a car rather than target numbers in a speciﬁcation sheet, CX-3 is designed and engineered to stimulate the emotions by closely matching human sensibilities. Mazda’s KODO — Soul of Motion design language again sets a new benchmark for quality and style, while a full suite of revolutionary SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY delivers performance that enhances modern lifestyles on any road from the inner city to the great outdoors. CX-3 is the perfect tool for expressing your individuality and adding spice to your life.
A NEW ERA: A RADICAL DESIGN DEPARTURE
The interior, too, is a radical design shift closely co-ordinated with the exterior styling. Flowing forms suggestive of speed, new ways of using materials that break free from convention, and ﬁnishes reﬂecting superior craftsmanship come together in a comfortable, stylish and inviting environment. Seats upholstered in black leather and off-black Lux Suede® with horizontal stitching generate a sophisticated, futuristic cabin atmosphere.
This high-efﬁciency, proven 2.0-litre petrol engine delivers crisp response and great low- to mid-range torque for lively performance both in town and on motorways.
Fast, smooth gearshifting along with the direct, connected feel of a manual transmission — that’s the high-efﬁciency six-speed SKYACTIV-DRIVE.
Mazda’s Proactive Safety philosophy is ﬁrmly grounded in a belief in the driver’s abilities, aiming to support safe driving while maintaining all the fun of the open road.
Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) with Traction Control System (TCS) electronically controls braking force applied to each wheel to help prevent under- or oversteer and maintain vehicle stability when cornering on slippery roads or during sudden steering inputs.
The body provides world-class collision safety performance. Extensive use of ultra-high- tensile steel gives strength with low weight, while the framework absorbs and channels energy away from the cabin.
A full complement of airbags — front, front seat side, curtain — provide another layer of protection in depth against physical shock and injury in a collision.
Features that empower you.
Drive Selection switch on the shift gate allows switching to Sport mode, automatically setting the transmission and engine characteristics for even more powerful acceleration and linear response especially when merging onto a crowded motorway.
The full-automatic climate-control system maximizes comfort by improved heating/cooling performance.
The sleek styling also achieves an ideal balance of over-body and under-body airﬂows that smoothly converge at the rear of the vehicle. The result is excellent aerodynamic performance for superior high-speed stability, quietness and fuel economy.
