Mazda CX-3 has been a successful model for Mazda since its introduction in 2015. The CX-3 is the second best-selling vehicle in its segment and extremely popular with the Urban buyers. So I guess you could say it personifies the shift away from sedans to the Urban SUV that has occurred in recent times.
The 2019 upgrade is more a tinker than a radical change, and marginal improvements on an already good product.
There are four models in the range, two engines, two drivetrains, and two transmissions. There is the Neo Sport, Maxx Sport, sTouring and Akari models. The CX-3 comes in both AWD and FWD, in both petrol and diesel engines with a 6-speed SKYACTIV-MT manual or 6-speed SKYACTIV-Drive automatic transmission.
There is also a choice of eight colours, matched with five model-dependent interior colour schemes.
Mazda’s predictions are for 92% of the sales to be FWD and 8% AWD, 90% AT and 10% MT, 99% Petrol and 1% diesel and over 55% the Maxx Sport version.
Mazda tells us that the most popular model in their range will be the Maxx Sport in FWD, petrol engine and a 6 speed auto transmission. So when we refer to facts and figures it will be this model we will refer to.
Mazda has once again, delivered on the Urban SUV promise with an excellent product. Specifically designed for the inner city and occasional road trips, the Mazda provides all the benefits of a small SUV without any issues.
Managing Director of Mazda Australia, Vinesh Bhindi, said the changes to New Mazda CX-3 enhance its appeal as an aspirational SUV.
“With its original styling, great ride and handling and impressive practicality, Mazda CX-3 was a class leader from the minute it arrived in Australia and has remained so ever since,” he said.
“This latest round of upgrades enhances the winning elements of the Mazda CX-3, elevating its elegance, performance and functionality, firmly cementing its place as the small SUV of choice.”
