The Next Big Thing is here
No I am not talking about a new cell phone. I am talking about the Mazda CX-3. This is a huge step for Mazda to introduce a new vehicle into a popular and very competitive segment. It is actually built on the Mazda2 platform which will give drivers the handling and comfort of a car platform and also add characteristics of an SUV to their driving experience.
This vehicle is an amazing combination of style, stocky and dynamically attractive. It has a variety of style features borrowed from other Mazda models including the elongated nose and smaller windows. The wheels are very large for this market segment and reinforced by gray body trim around the fenders.
There is a simple choice when it comes to engine and transmission. The 2.0 liter SKYACTIV four cylinder that has 146 horsepower with an engine speed of 6,000 rpm. Couple that with a six speed automatic transmission and you are good to go. Even on base trim you get a multimedia display screen that is above the competition. The dashboard is a nice choice of materials to give an impression of luxury. The simplicity of the controls and the instrumentation that differs in the GT version. It is very roomy for the passengers in the front and lots of extra head room to spare. This is a great offering by Mazda. If this is a sign of things to come, they are on the right track. I can’t wait to see what else they have coming out.
