The weather can change in an instant. That’s why Mazda’s uniquely smart available i-Activ AWD® all-wheel-drive system is always on alert.
The interior of the CX-3 expresses the vehicle’s unique character. Colors and fabrics are combined in unexpected ways to inspire a sense of sporty refinement.
Mazda CX-3 has well-balanced design proportions. Everything about the CX-3’s overall form appears agile yet firmly planted to the ground. It’s the essence of KODO design: simple lines that express energy and movement.
Carefully crafted lines of stitching create a feeling that’s solid and rich. Everywhere you look, clean lines and modern design help eliminate distraction, so you can focus on what matters most—driving.
The available Active Driving Display helps you take your mind off distractions by projecting critical driving information directly in front of you. Strategically positioned in your field of view and above the gauge cluster, this innovative display allows you to process information faster by keeping your eyes focused toward one place—the road ahead.
Mazda was the first automaker to use ultra-high-tensile-strength steel in a production vehicle. The Skyactiv-Body in the Mazda CX-3 continues to incorporate this light-but-strong steel in critical areas to help make it lighter than normal, yet stiffer and stronger.
Skyactiv®-Drive is our precise high-performance 6-speed automatic transmission that combines the direct feel of a manual transmission with the silky smoothness of an automatic.
The Mazda CX-3, from its body construction and engine technology to its chassis and transmission, is engineered to maximize driving dynamics. And minimize fuel consumption. This is made possible by Skyactiv® Technology.
By constantly monitoring everything from outside temperature to throttle input and braking patterns, available i-Activ AWD® predicts when all-wheel drive might be needed. Then it preemptively optimizes torque distribution to help curb traction loss.
