The latest addition to the Mazda line-up is a CUV that embodies a Mazda’s ‘Driving Matters’ philosophy. Enter the all-new 2016 Mazda CX-3. Crafted with attention to detail and utilizing Mazda’s innovative SKYACTIV Technology, it delivers exceptional fuel economy and thrilling performance in a package that draws the eye like a magnet. It just looks cool, plain and simple. It comes standard with Mazda’s 2.0L SKYACTIV engine and, with available All-Wheel Drive, the CX-3 is on board to do whatever it is that you want to do, whenever and wherever you want to do it. The muscular KODO exterior design paired with the no-nonsense, clean lines of the interior give the CX-3 a refined look and the fit and finish is what any faithful Mazda owner has come to expect and appreciate…high quality. Mazda has always been about the driving experience and the CX-3 is no exception. It hugs corners effortlessly, is responsive while stopping and accelerating and has a ‘Sport’ mode that, when active, gives the CX-3 a noticeable bump in the Zoom-Zoom department. Mazda even went a step further. They’ve included previously optional features as standard equipment on the CX-3. The 7” Mazda CONNECT touch screen, a Back-Up Camera and Bluetooth connectivity are just some of the features that are now standard on all trim levels of the CX-3, proving that safety is a priority. The entire system is easily and intuitively controlled by Mazda’s HMI Commander Switch, a touch-based control unit that allows the driver (and passenger) to change settings without taking attention from the road. With the optional Navigation system (Standard on GT Models), the HMI Commander Switch keeps you on the right road with the right tunes the right way…safely. Available technology features such as Smart City Brake Support, Blind Spot Monitoring and Adaptive Front Lighting give the CX-3 an additional safety factor that is hard to argue with. But Mazda didn’t stop there. They are the only car company that committed to a first-of-its-kind UNLIMITED mileage warranty on every 2015 and 2016 model. A warranty like that has to inspire confidence. You get to drive as much as you want, as far as you want and you’re covered. The CX-3 is a new entry into the CUV segment but it’s already making a big splash. Competitive products might have fuel economy, cargo space, a fun-to-drive feel and great style but the 2016 CX-3 seems to be the only one in the pack that exhibits all those qualities with no compromise. Get behind the wheel and you’ll see what makes the brand new 2016 CX-3 such a great fit in the Mazda family. Inspired performance, reliable safety, unparalleled fuel economy and a stunning design set the all-new CX-3 high above the rest of the herd.
