Introduced at this year’s New York International Auto Show, the 2019 Mazda’s CX-3 has been retuned and refined to deliver a heightened feeling of elegance, driving performance and efficiency.
The 2019 Mazda CX-3 incorporates improved materials, sound insulation, newly available full-leather seating surfaces and a standard electronic parking brake.
As a result of adopting the electronic parking brake, CX-3’s centre console and centre armrest have been fully redesigned to accommodate significantly greater storage space.
Other updates include fully redesigned front seats and new rear armrest with built-in cupholders. The 2019 CX-3 carries a new front grille design in addition to new taillights and wheels.
Mazda CX-3’s new Sport i-Activsense Package adds Mazda’s
All 2019 CX-3 models come equipped with a Skyactiv-G 2.0-liter engine, paired with a Skyactiv-Drive six-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift and sport modes. The engine has been retuned for refinement and efficiency. For 2019, it is rated to deliver 148 hp at 6,000 rpm and 146 lb-/ft of torque at 2,800 rpm.
Front-wheel drive is standard and Mazda’s predictive i-Activ all-wheel drive is available on every trim level. Along with standard G-Vectoring Control vehicle dynamics enhancements, a retuned suspension for both improved and sportier ride, and recalibrated power steering and chassis setups contribute to a smoother, quieter and more enjoyable driving experience.
