Mazda CX-3 now in showrooms at an unbeatable offer
Driven by its spirit of original thinking, the CX-3’s progressive shapes exude fun and do it with dignity, mirroring the active lifestyle and enlightened, independent outlook of the typical buyer. So, while sharing many KODO – Soul of Motion traits with other Mazdas, from the sculpted, flowing lines to the compact rear-leaning cabin, the CX-3’s bold face, large wheels, side mouldings and high beltline also unmistakably express its go-anywhere SUV character.
At the heart of the CX-3 beats a petrol SKYACTIV-G 2.0 with power transferred to the front wheels via 6-speed SKYACTIV-Drive automatic. This engine is unconventionally efficient, featuring extreme compression, lightweight designs and standard i-stop idle-stop system. It’s all been done in pursuit of optimum internal combustion and the best possible balance between performance and fuel efficiency.
The direct-injection SKYACTIV-G 2.0 is offered with 154bhp at 6,000rpm, and 204Nm of torque delivered at 2,800rpm. Featuring 14:1 compression, the highest available in a mass-produced passenger car. Unlike the downsized petrol units so popular these days, there’s no turbo lag.
What’s more, they’re designed for optimum real-world fuel economy; the higher output SKYACTIV-G also gets the i-ELOOP brake energy regeneration system. Mazda is confident that this latest addition to its family will go on to be a core model, bringing the brand into the hearts of a new generation of discerning car buyers.
The Mazda CX-3 comes with sun roof and 18 inch sports rim. It will be available in 5 colour choices; Soul Red Metallic, Crystal White Pearl, Jet Black, Meteor Gray, and Deep Crystal Blue. Selling price is RM131,218.50 OTR without insurance.
This all new Mazda SUV is on sale in all Mazda showrooms right now.
