Updated Mazda CX-3 gets global debut at NY Auto Show

The sleek Mazda CX-3’s newest variation is getting ready for a world debut at the 2018 New York Auto Show. Mazda’s potent compact SUV has garnered quite a buzz since its debut in 2015; this is only the second update for the model.

Featuring a more mature KODO design, extensively modified SKYACTIV engines and a broader range of i-ACTIVSENSE safety technologies, the latest Mazda CX-3 is ready to continue the success of the previous model when it goes on sale around Europe this summer.

The latest CX-3 once again focuses on Mazda’s human-centered design philosophy giving the driver and passengers a more mature, higher-quality experience in every area.

Exterior changes include a newly designed front grille, the option of the Soul Red Crystal paint and new 18-inch aluminum wheels. New interior features a central armrest, an electronic parking brake with “auto-hold”-function* and extensive i-ACTIVSENSE safety systems enhancements including a new traffic jam assistant* (in combination with SKYACTIV-Drive auto transmission) and Matrix LED lighting.

The SKYACTIV-D diesel engine for the Mazda CX-3 2018 offers numerous improvements that ensure it meets the EURO 6d-Temp emission standard, including real-drive emission test (RDE). The lowered combustion temperature, achieved by an increased displacement of the four-cylinder among other engine upgrades, leads to even lower NOX raw emissions. A NOx storage catalyst reduces the few remaining nitrogen oxide components in the exhaust gas to the level required for Euro 6d-Temp standard.

The SKYACTIV-G petrol engines of the 2018 Mazda CX-3 also received several updates to further reduce the particulate emissions often found in gasoline direct injection engines. Even without a gasoline particle filter, the SKYACTIV-G gasoline engine meets the stricter requirements of the Euro 6d-Temp emission standard including the RDE-test for the number of particles.

The New York Auto Show is open to the public from 30 March – 8 April 2018.
