2016 Mazda CX-3 Puts a Premium Spin on Small CUVs

Mazda CX-3 Forum

Mazda is revealing several new or refreshed vehicles here at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Arguably the most significant of this group that’s Zoom-Zooming into town is the freshly minted CX-3.

This compact crossover is the fifth model in the Japanese automaker’s lineup to benefit from its Skyactiv suite of fuel-saving features. Beyond this, it’s also dressed in the brand’s striking Kodo design theme, so visually it fits right in with the rest of their lineup.

Like other Mazda models the CX-3 has a long hood, swooping character lines along its body-side and a shapely rump. It looks pretty aggressive though it’s refreshingly elegant at the same time. It seems that designers sometimes make smaller vehicles a little over the top.

That overall tastefulness continues into the cabin where passengers are treated to a surprisingly premium experience. Aside from nicely grained plastics it should also offer clear outward visibility, easy ingress and egress as well as advanced in-car connectivity. Additionally the company’s i-Activsense suite of safety technologies is also available.

Dimensionally this crossover shares major components with the Mazda2 hatchback. That means it should deliver a whole bunch of driving fun in a very trim package. North American versions of the CX-3 will feature a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and a standard six-speed automatic transmission. Output figures are not available at this time but this powerplant in the Mazda3 compact car puts out 155 horses.

Now, in addition the company is also offering this vehicle with an advanced all-wheel-drive system. This should help it appeal to customers living in areas where the weather’s not perfect 360 days a year, basically those of us that DON’T reside is Southern California.

The 2016 Mazda CX-3 is slated to go on sale globally in the spring.
