What’s Changing in the 2017 Mazda CX-3?

While specifics have been few and far between, we’re told to expect new front and rear bumpers, which will be larger than previous years, as well as a longer bodyline, giving the crossover a sportier appearance. Drivers can also expect a larger grille with improved air intake for enhanced performance, and integrated LED fog lights, as well as LED-enhanced headlights.

The interior is said to be getting a refresh as well with a large touchscreen infotainment system that will showcase new features, although Mazda has been quiet as to what those will be.

The 2017 Mazda CX-3 is said to feature a 2.0L 4-cylinder powerplant that will produce160-hp and up to 120 lb.-ft. of torque, which is a 14-hp boost over the current model.

How is 2017 Mazda CX-3 Similar to the 2016?

Drivers will still enjoy standard safety features like engine immobilizer with theft deterrent, tire pressure monitoring, advanced dual airbags, side impact door beams, and more on every trim level. Rearview camera, steering wheel mounted controls with Bluetooth connectivity and 16-inch aluminum alloy wheels will also be standard equipment, while options like heated exterior mirrors, 7-speaker Bose Premium audio system, and heated front seats remain available on select trims.
