The compact SUV is certainly enjoying the limelight in this era of motoring, and the new Mazda CX-3 has more than staked its place among this competitive segment.
One way in which it has etched its way into the public eye is with dramatic and contemporary styling. The new CX-3 really takes hold of the KODO Soul of Motion design ethic that Mazda has employed so well across its range, creating one of the most striking cars in its class.
Coupled with this is the highly efficient and effective deployment of Mazda’s SKYACTIV Technology that can be found throughout the new CX-3. Whether it’s under the bonnet, the chassis or transmission, this compact SUV is highly capable and ready to shrink your running costs.
Based on the Mazda 2, the new CX-3 is compact in nature, but might surprise people in just how practical it can be. With all seats in place, its 350-litre boot offers ample room, but can be increased to a generous 1260 litres with the rear seating laid down.
Propelling the CX-3 are a range of highly efficient and economical engines, with a selection of petrol and diesel units to suit your needs, as well All-Wheel Drive if you need it. The available 105ps diesel powerplant is the one to go for when it comes to pure fuel economy, with the engine offering up to 70.6mpg.
Meanwhile, the 150ps SKYACTV-G with All-Wheel Drive offers something a bit different and full engages the Jinba Ittai driving philosophy. The system utilises cutting-edge sensors which continuously monitor the road surface’s condition, as well as the action of the driver, to ensure power is transferred to the wheel or wheels with the most traction.
The cabin of the new Mazda CX-3 fully embraces the driver, thanks in large to an ergonomic and focused interior which gives everything at the fingertips of the driver. The MZD-Connect system, for example, can be controlled by its colour touchscreen (at low speed), the dials by the driver’s side or by the steering wheel itself.
Whichever way you choose, you’ll be able to control your smartphone’s features, be it music streaming or taking calls safely, along with the likes of a DAB radio and satellite navigation.
