Mazda Showcases the new CX-3


Mazda Motor Corporation this week revealed the all-new Mazda CX-3 to the world. The new compact crossover SUV is the fifth model in Mazda’s line-up of new-generation vehicles that feature the full range of SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY and KODO-Soul of Motion design. With global launches starting from Japan in the spring of 2015, the CX-3 is set to become a core model in the automaker’s line-up.


The all-new compact crossover SUV offers all the essentials people look for in a car; a design of overwhelming quality and style, packaging developed solely with the customer’s ease-of-use in mind, and the responsive driving feel that Mazda strives for in every model. The CX-3 was developed to suit the customer’s creative lifestyle in any scene, from inner-city driving to enjoying the great outdoors.


The powertrain line-up includes the SKYACTIV-D 1.5-liter clean diesel engine and SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter gasoline engine, depending on the market. Along with Mazda’s new-generation AWD system, each engine option delivers powerful and linear driving performance and outstanding environmental performance. To enhance the customer’s driving pleasure, the model also offers a wide range of Mazda’s latest technologies, including the Mazda Connect car connectivity system and i-ACTIVSENSE advanced safety features.


The CX-5 is sold here in Malaysia but unfortunately not the diesel version. It would be great if Mazda brought in the diesel versions and I do look forward to the CX-3 when it is launched here. It is about time we see more smaller SUV’s marketed here in Malaysia.

The all-new Mazda CX-3 will be on display at the Los Angeles Auto Show, open from November 21 through November 30, 2014.
