Product Overview

A new era: a new standard

The challenge: to build a car that can be used anywhere, in any way, to support creative, individualistic lifestyles. The result: azda CX-3. Finding inspiration in the essential values people seek in a car rather than target numbers in a specification sheet, CX-3 is designed and engineered to stimulate the emotions by closely matching human sensibilities. Mazda’s KODO — Soul of Motion design language again sets a new benchmark for quality and style, while a full suite of revolutionary SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY delivers performance that enhances modern lifestyles on any road from the inner city to the great outdoors. CX-3 is the perfect tool for expressing your individuality and adding spice to your life.

A new era: a radical design departure

CX-3 marks another advance in Mazda’s KODO design philosophy. Inspired by the power, grace and beauty of animals in the wild and avoiding all preconceptions of how a crossover should look, CX-3’s styling is an eye-catching expression of dynamic motion with a sense of purpose. Large-diameter wheels add to the stable, well-planted stance, enhancing the striking proportions of the sleek cabin and short overhangs. Combined with clean lines shorn of unnecessary details this creates a unique statement of charismatic style.

Room to enjoy

You never feel short of space in CX-3. The front seats offer ample shoulder and legroom for people of any build and the rear seats offer omfortable headroom and knee space. In addition, rear seats are located higher and closer to the centre of the cabin than the front seats, creating a layout that makes it easier for passengers in the rear to see out of the front or converse with people in the front seats.

Skyactiv Technology


This high-efficiency, proven 2.0-litre petrol engine delivers crisp response and great low- to mid-range torque for lively performance both in town and on motorways.

i-Activ AWD

Mazda’s new-generation all-wheel-drive system i-ACTIV AWD is engineered to offer confident driving on any road surface while also contributing to environmental compatibility. The system helps prevent tyre slippage and minimize energy losses — enhancing both driveability in poor conditions and fuel economy — by instantly distributing power optimally between the front and rear wheels. This is achieved by continuously monitoring road conditions according to various factors such as road gradient, and outside temperature and weather, as well as detecting front wheel grip. In addition, i-ACTIV AWD assesses your intentions via your driving operations to precisely adjust torque distribution.


SKYACTIV-BODY employs optimized structures and advanced materials to simultaneously achieve lighter weight and increased rigidity for better safety and handling performance.


More comfort and more of Mazda’s famous feeling of unity between car and driver with the SKYACTIV-CHASSIS’s suspension and steering.


LED Headlamps

Signature wings extending from the front grille blend into the four-lamp LED headlamp units to heighten the Mazda brand image with a sophisticated, futuristic look.

Rear combination lamps

Rear combination lamps consist of separate units on the liftgate and body that echo the laterally aligned shape of the headlamps. An internal lighting signature highlights the car’s unique identity.

Sleek Styling

The sleek styling also achieves an ideal balance of over-body and under-body airflows that smoothly converge at the rear of the vehicle. The result is excellent aerodynamic performance for superior high-speed stability, quietness and fuel economy.

Climate Control

The full-automatic climate-control system maximizes comfort by improved heating/cooling performance.


18-inch aluminium wheels feature dynamic gunmetal grey spokes. Bold machining at the rim end brings out the sharp contrast between the brilliance of the metal and gunmetal grey paint.

Drive Selection switch

Drive Selection switch on the shift gate allows switching to Sport mode, automatically setting the transmission and engine characteristics for even more powerful acceleration and linear response especially when merging onto a crowded motorway.

Exterior Body Colors

* Exterior colors shown in the above pictures may differ on the screen from the actual model color.

Soul Red Metallic

The Soul Red Metallic body colour was developed as part of Mazda’s unique TAKUMI-NURI (TAKUMI: master craftsman, NURI: painting) painting technology. It achieves an unprecedented combination of colour, highlights, shade and depth to emphasize the dynamic body shape of KODO design, and symbolizes Mazda’s passion to embody the Zoom-Zoom driving pleasure.
