Starting from $19,990* the Mazda CX-3 comes in four grades including the entry-level Neo, the Maxx, sTouring, and the range-topping Akari.

The CX-3 is available locally with two engine choices including an all-new 1.5 litre diesel and a 2.0 litre petrol, matched to a 6-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission.

The new Mazda CX-3 comes with drivetrain choices of Front-Wheel Drive (FWD) or All-Wheel Drive (AWD) across both the diesel and petrol engines.

Fuel consumption rating examples include: the 1.5 litre diesel FWD with 6-speed automatic transmission at 4.8 litres/100km and the 2.0 litre petrol FWD comes in at 6.1 litres/100km.

MZD Connect, Mazda’s infotainment system, includes a seven-inch touch screen operated by a centrally located commander control, and a Active Driving Display available on some higher grade models only. For those with the petrol powered 2.0 litre engine, Drive Selection feature switches the powertrain into a more sporty mode, while two USB ports and reverse camera are fitted to Maxx models and above.

A range of protective measures including, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Traction Control System (TCS), Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) and front, side and curtain SRS airbags are standard across the range.
