Mazda to Debut All-New CX-3 Compact Crossover SUV

31 October 2014

Mazda Motor Corporation has announced that its all-new compact crossover SUV, named the Mazda CX-3, will make its world premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Mazda CX-3 is the fifth vehicle in Mazda’s line-up of new-generation products that feature the full range of SKYACTIV Technology and KODO—Soul of Motion design.  In pursuing a design of beauty and sophistication, the essence of KODO—the expression of life within a vehicle—has been evolved to produce a sharper form with an enhanced sense of speed.

Andrew Clearwater, Managing Director of Mazda New Zealand says they are extremely excited about the all-new CX-3 as it is a striking vehicle which will  make a distinctly Mazda impression within a growing market opportunity.

“Not only is the all-new CX-3 the perfect addition to our SUV line-up but it is a stunning depiction of KODO, there is nothing in this class quite like it.”

The vehicle joins Mazda’s growing crossover SUV lineup, which includes the CX-5 – New Zealand’s top selling small SUV – and the seven-seat CX-9.

In addition, the all-new Mazda MX-5 two-seater open-top sports car (Mazda Roadster in Japan) will make its North American auto show debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show.  The engine line-up for the all-new MX-5 will be tailored to each market, and feature either a 1.5-liter or 2.0-liter SKYACTIV-G gasoline engine, tuned exclusively for the model and mounted longitudinally.

The Los Angeles Auto Show is running from November 21 through November 30, 2014.
