Chronology
SuccessorMazda CX-30

The Mazda CX-3 is a subcompact crossover SUV manufactured in Japan by Mazda. Based on the same platform as the Mazda Demio/Mazda2 (DJ/DL), it was revealed to the public with a full photo gallery on November 19, 2014, and first put on display two days later at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, as a production vehicle for the model year of 2016.[5]

Overview[edit]

The CX-3 is offered with an array of engines, such as a 1.5-litre and 2.0-litre four-cylinder Skyactiv-G gasoline engine, and a 1.5 L Skyactiv-D diesel engine.[6] CX-3 sales began in the United States in the end of 2015, as a model for 2016. It replaced the similar Mazda2 subcompact in the market in North America.[7]

Across the model lineup, power is provided by an updated (2018) 2.0-litre Skyactiv-G engine that develops 146 bhp (110 kW) and 148 lb ft (201 Nm) of torque.[8] It is connected to a six speed automatic transmission that can be paired to an optional all wheel drive system.

The entry level CX-3 Sport, Touring and Grand Touring all feature cruise control, power windows/lock, and a 60/40 split folding rear seat. Other highlights include a rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and an infotainment system, Mazda Connect, with a 7-inch display as standard equipment.[9]

In Asia, the CX-3 is sold in countries such as Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines and Indonesia, and was introduced progressively from 2016. Similarly, the CX-3 is offered with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder gasoline engine or a 1.5-litre Skyactiv-D diesel engine.

Facelift[edit]

The CX-3 received a minor facelift in 2018 including a new split horizontal chrome grill design, foglamps, tail lamps, minor tweaks to the chassis, added safety features, centre console armrest and replaced the manual handbrake with electric parking brakes.[10]

For the 2020 model year in the United States, the Touring and Grand Touring trim levels were dropped in order to make room for the Mazda CX-30 leaving only the base Sport trim, with AWD being the only option. Newly standard equipment for the Sport trim include Apple Carplay and Android Auto as well as the i-Activesense safety suite.[11]

Starting from 23 April 2020, Mazda added a 1.5-litre four-cylinder Skyactiv-G petrol engine option, for the market in Japan.[12] The engine option was also introduced in Indonesia on 29 March 2021,[13] and in Egypt on 24 April 2021.[14]

Discontinuation[edit]

The Mazda CX-3 was discontinued in the US market for 2022, marking 2021 as the final model year. It was replaced by the Mazda CX-30 which was introduced in 2020 in North America.[15]
