It’s time for a new face on the compact-crossover scene. Coventry Motor Company is delighted to introduce the Mazda CX-3, a stylish SUV that will not only turn heads, but impress behind the wheel too. As well as its smart looks, the CX-3 is also cost-effective to run and is as capable negotiating urban streets as it is touring the countryside.
The Mazda CX-3 is undeniably stylish, sculpted and crafted by the Japanese marque’s desire to make the driver and car feel at one. From the front, you’re captivated by the car’s substantial lower body that’s topped with a contrasting sleek cabin to give it it’s sporty look.
Its contoured lines continue along the sleek side panels, giving the CX-3 a very striking side profile. From the rear, blacked out door sashes create an uninterrupted flow – complementing the KODO-design to create a sense of movement.
Meanwhile, the inside of this stylish SUV’s cabin feels spacious, well-designed and up-market. Look out for great finishing touches such as the stippled chrome climate control knobs and leather-look insert just below vent level.
Passengers and the driver alike will enjoy a comfortable and supportive position, thanks to well-bolstered seats that make even long journeys a pleasure. Plus, there’s a vast range of seat and steering column adjustments and all of the controls are placed right at hand, clearly labelled and simple to understand.
When it comes to infotainment, the CX-3 delivers a great deal of tech as standard on all trims. Every model comes equipped with a 7-inch media system. This touchscreen system boasts a clear display that’s easy to read. It’s neatly presented and adds to the slick feeling inside the cabin.
The system is very easy to control while on the move thanks to its rotary controller which is fitted just behind the gear leaver. Additionally, there’s no more trailing charging cables all around the cabin or fumbling inside the glovebox to find the adaptor with the CX-3. Designed with you in mind, this car has a tray that can hold your phone right above the USB ports and auxiliary connector which also sit just in front of the gear lever.
In addition, there’s an impressive voice control system as well as Mazda’s integrated sat-nav system, Bluetooth phone connection and DAB digital radio fitted as standard. Upgrade to Sport Nav and GT Sport models and enjoy a Bose stereo, heated leather seats among other luxurious options.
You can take your pick from different engines with the CX-3. Choose from the 1.5-litre SkyActiv-D diesel, or the 2.0-litre SkyActiv-G petrol, in two power outputs. Whichever you choose, you’ll have a choice of six-speed manual or automatic gearboxes. Furthermore, you will also be able to pick between front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive depending on your selected trim.
In terms of efficiency, you’ll get up to 70mpg and emissions as low as 105g/km with the 1.5d SE five-door model. Meanwhile, if you are looking for power, the 2.0-litre Sport Nav 5dr AWD model rockets from 0-60mph in around eight seconds with a bhp of 150.
The CX-3 also comes equipped with a suite of airbags, ISOFIX child seat anchor points in the rear and a handy seat belt reminder. Electronic Stability Control keeps you safe on the roads by automatically detecting and reducing a loss of traction if skidding occurs.
