The Mazda CX-3 subcompact crossover enters its second model year in the U.S. adding better value to the range whilst also maintaining the same price tag of $19,960 MSRP (est RM81,000).

The CX-3 sold in the US can be had in either Sport, Touring and Grand Touring variant. For the 2017 model year, changes in content are subtle but include standard 18-inch alloy wheels for the CX-3 Touring models—an item brought down from Grand Touring—and a lower cost of entry for Mazda’s i-ActivSense Package of safety technologies in CX-3 Grand Touring which is $1,170 (RM4,776) versus last year’s $1,920 (RM7,838).

The i-ActivSense package includes Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC), automatic Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) and Smart Brake Support (SBS), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), High Beam Control (HBC), automatic on/off headlights and rain-sensing wipers.

All CX-3 models come standard with a punchy, 146hp SkyActiv-G 2.0-litre engine paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission, featuring Sport mode. Power is routed to either the front wheels or through all four with i-Activ all-wheel drive.

CX-3 Sport models come equipped with 16-inch alloy wheels, power mirrors, cloth seats, a 7-inch Mazda Connect touchscreen infotainment system with voice commands, Bluetooth phone connectivity for phone and audio streaming, a USB input, keyless entry, push-button start, power door locks, a six-speaker audio system and air conditioning, among a long list of other features.

CX-3 Touring upgrades with the aforementioned 18-inch alloy wheels, heated exterior door mirrors with integrated turn signal lamps, leatherette and cloth seating surfaces, heated front seats, leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel, fold-down center armrest with built-in phone holder, Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA).

The Touring Premium Package further upgrades CX-3 with a BOSE 7-speaker audio system, power sunroof, satellite radio, HD radio and a cargo cover.
The top-level CX-3 Grand Touring includes all of those features and adds leather and Lux Suede seats, LED headlights with Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS), LED fog lights, navigation, automatic climate control, paddle shifters and Active Driving Display head-up unit that helps keep a driver’s eyes focused on the road.

The 2017 Mazda CX-3 will arrive in U.S. dealerships in early July.
