New Mazda CX-3 defies its dimensions, packing even more style, value and power into the small SUV’s latest update. Released in Australia at the end of August, New Mazda CX-3 has seen design, equipment and engine upgrades to enhance its timeless appeal and the elements that make it one of the most popular small SUVs in the segment. 

On the exterior, a new front grille adopts bold horizontal lines to achieve a more assertive stance, while rear combination lamps on sTouring and Akari models have been refined to give a more premium and precise look.

Inside, New Mazda CX-3 has been given a substantial makeover with a revised centre console design accommodating the newly added Electric Parking Brake (EPB), now standard on all grades as well as a new padded armrest.

Boosting safety, a reverse camera is now standard across all grades, joining a comprehensive suite of standard i-ACTIVSENSE advanced safety technologies to support the driver, including Smart City Brake Support Forward and Reverse (SCBS F/R) and Emergency Brake Assistance (EBA).

The range topping Akari also adds Mazda’s new 360° View Monitor and Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC) with Stop & Go - the only vehicle in its category to offer both functions.

Further still, sTouring and Akari grades adopt newly designed, bigger, 18-inch wheels with a bright metallic finish that better absorb high frequency road noise and vibration.

Dynamics have been further advanced with suspension Electric Power Steering (EPS) revisions.

New Mazda CX-3 is available with the SKYACTIV-G 2.0L petrol engine, which has seen a range of SKYACTIV technologies applied to improve economy, while also improving the engine’s power and torque performance.

The new SKYACTIV-D 1.8L turbo-diesel engine is also offered with more power, replacing the smaller capacity 1.5L engine in the previous model. Combined with a host of SKYACTIV technology upgrades, including SKYACTIV-Vehicle Dynamics enhanving the Jinba-ittai driving experience,e the new engine boosts power to 85kW at 4,000rpm, while torque remains a high 270Nm.

New Mazda CX-3 is available in four model grades, with Neo and Maxx variants upgraded to Neo Sport and Maxx Sport to sit alongside sTouring and the top-spec Akari models.

New Mazda CX-3 is available in both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive guises with either the 6-speed SKYACTIV-MT manual or 6-speed SKYACTIV-Drive automatic transmission. New Mazda CX-3 is available in a choice of eight colours, matched with five model-dependent interior colour schemes.
