The CX-3 is a study in striking yet well-balanced design proportions. From rich body contours to exceptionally short overhangs and blacked-out D-pillars, everything about the CX-3’s overall form makes it appear agile yet firmly planted to the ground. It’s the essence of our KODO: “Soul of Motion” design expression: simple lines that express energy and movement, even at a standstill.
Weather and road conditions can change in an instant. That’s why Mazda’s available smart predictive i-ACTIV AWD® all-wheel-drive system is always on alert, monitoring conditions and ready to adjust power delivery to help give you optimal traction before your wheels can slip.
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.
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.
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.
The moment you sit down in the CX-3, you’re elevated in a driver-centric cabin, designed to expand your visibility of the world around you. The dash features futuristic-looking analog dials and a full-color display screen. Every detail of the CX-3 makes it feel like a second home—and driving feel like second nature.
On select models, 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.
At your feet, even the CX-3’s most basic features, like foot pedals, are engineered to make driving effortless and enjoyable. Symmetrically placed to align with the driver’s centerline, each pedal is specifically designed for easier and more precise control and stability—all to help eliminate foot fatigue on longer drives.
Every aspect of 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, our unique engineering approach that gives you a better driving experience with equally impressive 34 EPA-estimated HWY MPG1.
Standard on every CX-3, the MAZDA CONNECT™3
infotainment system provides information, entertainment and a
connection to the outside world. Just use the multifunction Commander
control on the center console to navigate the multitude of functions
displayed on the full-color touch-screen display.
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.
The sleek Commander control knob allows you to rotate, press, and toggle to easily access what you want, even while on the move. It includes customizable shortcut buttons and a back button for a simple, frustration-free experience.
Keep prying eyes away from your valuables. This interior Tonneau Cover attaches to the rear door so it lifts and shuts as you open or close the hatch, allowing for easy loading or unloading of cargo. And it’s easily removable if extra space is needed.
Let in the starlight, not the wind noise. Mazda’s durable UV- and scratch-resistant smoked acrylic Moonroof Wind Deflector helps make your trip a quieter and more open-air experience.
Keep the air flowing and the weather out. Add a little attitude to your CX-3 with Side Window Deflectors that let you keep your windows partially open for interior ventilation in all kinds of weather.
With HomeLink®5 you can program your garage door, entry gates and security lights to operate at the touch of a button. And the smart mirror system automatically adjusts to reduce glare from headlights behind you.
