The three distinct trim levels of the 2017 Mazda CX-3 allow you the freedom to choose what features are important to you:
The 2017 Mazda CX-3 is the ultimate in well-balanced design proportions. Featuring rich body contours and blacked-out D-pillars, the overall form appears agile yet sturdy. Highlighted by a rear roof spoiler, the sleek frame is eye catching. Available adaptive LED headlights lead you where you’re going while LED taillights emphasize where you’ve been. Mazda’s available smart predictive i-ACTIV® AWD all wheel drive system is always on alert, monitoring conditions and ready to adjust power delivery to optimize traction before your wheels can slip.
The 2017 Mazda CX-3 is equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 146 horsepower and 146 lb.-ft. of torque. A six speed automatic is the only available transmission, which allows the 2017 Mazda CX-3 to accelerate from 0 to 60 in just 8.5 seconds – relatively quick for a subcompact SUV. Front wheel drive is standard while all wheel drive is offered as an option on all trim levels.
Thanks to its lightweight frame, the 2017 Mazda CX-3 with front wheel drive achieves an efficient 31 mpg combined EPA-estimated fuel economy. The All Wheel Drive model yields a solid 29 mpg combined, while paving the way for a new generation of responsive and rugged AWD transmission systems.
With an evident attention to detail, the 2017 Mazda CX-3 sports a sleek and contemporary cabin that highlights its unique personality. Trimmed with high-end materials and equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen interface, the 2017 Mazda CX-3 is built to elevate your expectations. Comfortable front seats with available leather upholstery and carefully crafted stitching are well-suited for energetic driving, while a six-speaker audio system with Bluetooth connectivity, streaming radio apps, and voice controls keeps you right in the action while you drive. Automatic climate control is available, as is an upgraded instrument panel and in-car navigation system. You can also upgrade to a seven-speaker Bose audio system with satellite radio. And if you need to carry cargo instead of passengers, the 60/40 split-folding rear seat offers you enough flexibility to transform the vehicle into a load-carrier.
Standard safety features you’d expect such as antilock brakes, stability and traction control, front side airbags, and side curtain airbags are included on every 2017 Mazda CX-3. More advanced safety technologies available include:
