Mazda CX-3 – 2015 Geneva Live

Aravind

Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Will be offered in FWD and AWD format.

Mazda’s smallest SUV – the CX-3 – has made its European debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Part of the Japanese brand’s aggressive model launches, the new CX-3 will be the fifth new model to launch within six months.

Similar to its bigger brothers, the new CX-3 is heavily influenced by Mazda’s KODO design philosophy, with a revised front grille flanked by headlamps. The front and rear end appears scaled down from the CX-5, while top spec trims will get large 18-inch wheels.

Inside, the CX-3’s interior looks identical to the Mazda2 hatchback. It comes with a 7-inch infotainment display navigated via a control knob, a simple dashboard, and a revised instrument cluster. It will be available with MZD Connect, Mazda’s safe and easy-to-use smartphone connectivity system, and the company’s state-of-the-art i-ACTIVSENSE active safety technology.

At its heart is a 2.0-liter Skyactiv four-cylinder paired with a six-speed automatic gearbox. It is capable of delivering 155 hp and 203 Nm of torque to either the front wheels (standard) or all wheels via an AWD system (optional).
