Mazda CX-3

The Mazda CX-3 is a small SUV, sometimes referred to as a crossover, with a reputation for being engaging with a focus on premium presentation.

Introduced in 2015 and still in its first generation, the Mazda CX-3 is based on the same platform as the small Mazda2 hatchback.

The Mazda CX-3 is offered in front-wheel and all-wheel drive, depending on specification. All Mazda CX-3s use a 2.0-litre petrol engine.

Entry level CX-3s, called the Neo Sport, start from just below $23,000 with a manual transmission and front-wheel drive. At the top end of the range for just above $28,000 is the all-wheel drive, automatic Mazda CX-3 Akari.

In the same small SUV segment as the CX-3 is the enduringly popular Mitsubishi ASX, as well as the newer Hyundai Kona. Trailing these on the sales charts are the likes of the Honda HR-V and Toyota C-HR.

When is a new Mazda CX-3 due?

There's currently no word on a new Mazda CX-3 from the brand, after the reveal of its slightly larger Mazda CX-30 in 2019.

Does the Mazda CX-3 come with a CVT transmission?

The Mazda CX-3 has a 6-speed conventional automatic transmission, called a torque converter, and is not available with a CVT. Manual gearboxes are also available.

Does the Mazda CX-3 have Android Auto or Apple CarPlay?

Mazda has announced it is making Apple CarPlay and Android Auto available to be added to Mazda CX-3s for $500.

How many child seats can fit in the Mazda CX-3?

The Mazda CX-3 has ISOFIX anchors fitted to the rear outer seats for easy securing of two compatible child-seats.
