2017 Mazda CX-3Mazda CX-3 was nominated as one of the finalists for 2016 World Car Design of the Year by more than seventy media jurors. But as we all know, looks are not everything: Mazda Radar Cruise Control and its Active Driving Display are the heroes of the lineup, along with the incredible driving dynamics and smooth driving. But apparently this does not stop the engineering team to deliver more and more refinement to the segment.

For 2017, CX-3 will come with neat 18-inch alloy wheels, Mazda's  i-ACTIVESENSE Package and tons of horsepower. To be precise, there are a total of 146 horses (108KW) to aim the sporty feel and road behavior. The SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter power unit is paired to a six-speed automatic gearbox and comes with selectable driving modes.

In terms of style and convenience, the CX-3 Sport models will be equipped with 16-inch alloys, power mirrors, cloth seats, voice-command systems, Bluetooth phone connectivity, keyless entry, push-button start, power door locks, six-speaker audio system and air-conditioning.
