Having made its European debut at the Geneva Motor Show, the all-new Mazda CX-3 will go on sale in Ireland on June 1st 2015. With a 8-strong model line-up, Mazda’s first small SUV promises to take the compact SUV sector by storm when it arrives in Irish retailers this summer. Combining Mazda’s unique SKYACTIV technology and KODO: Soul of Motion design language, the CX-3 will bring new levels of sophistication, style, driving pleasure and equipment to the growing small SUV market.
With a choice of two petrol and six diesel variants, the all-new Mazda CX-3 comes with generous standard equipment and Mazda’s latest i-ACTIVSENSE safety systems. Executive models feature 16-inch alloy wheels, plus heated and power folding mirrors, while Executive SE models add rear privacy glass and front LED fog lights, the first car in the class to come with LED headlights. Stepping up to the high grade GT model, the CX-3’s unique nocturnal appearance is further enhanced by 18-inch Gun-metallic diamond-cut alloy wheels and chrome accent door sills wrap up the distinctive look.
From Executive, the inside of the all-new Mazda CX-3 features a 7-inch colour touchscreen, DAB radio, Bluetooth® and a multifunction steering wheel, while GT models up the technology with Bose® surround sound, smart keyless entry and, in another first for the sector, Mazda’s Active Driving Display head-up display system. In line with all of Mazda’s newest models, the CX-3’s user-friendly cabin layout sets new standards in material quality and design, while Executive SE models benefit from heated front seats, automatic climate control and rain-sensing wipers. Optional half Stone leather available on GT models further enhances the small SUVs premium cabin.
The all-new Mazda CX-3 boasts impressive active safety equipment to compliment the passive protection of its lightweight yet rigid SKYACTIV-Body and full complement of standard airbags, which includes curtain airbags. Hill Hold Assist, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System and Dynamic Stability Control are standard across the range, while Executive SE and GT models feature Mazda’s Lane Departure Warning System and Smart City Brake Support. GT models also benefit from a rear view camera.
With a flexible cargo board boot floor, which can be lifted to provide a flat load space when the standard 60:40 split fold rear seats are tumbled, the all-new Mazda CX-3’s spacious 350-litre boot ensures it has the practicality to match its upmarket cabin and stylish exterior.
Featuring the signature ‘wing’ front grille, sharp KODO design lines and predatory headlamp styling which instantly identify it as a member of the Mazda family, the CX-3’s sweeping a-pillars and coupe-like profile give it a sporty stance on the road, yet with a 50mm higher ride height than the all-new Mazda2, the CX-3 still offers the more commanding view of the road favoured by SUV customers.
Tony Howarth, Managing Director – Mazda Ireland, added “This new Mazda CX-3 is an exciting proposition for the brand as it enters a relatively young segment which is growing rapidly. The practicality of this fresh design combined with our new 1.5D SKYACTIV engine and high levels of standard equipment make this car an extremely attractive ownership proposition. Those choosing to buy the Mazda CX-3 will be making a statement that a car is more than a means of transport and says something about your personality. I am looking forward to welcoming many new customers into the Mazda brand with this exciting new model.”
Having made its debut in the all-new Mazda2, the SKYACTIV-D 1.5-litre diesel front-wheel drive models make up the majority of the range, although the 105ps SKYACTIV-D GT AWD is offered with both manual and automatic transmissions. With emissions of just 105g/km the front-wheel drive SKYACTIV-D has an official combined economy of 4.0l/100km, while across the range Mazda’s SKYACTIV technology ensures the all-new Mazda CX-3 delivers an unrivalled blend of performance and efficiency.
Featuring the full complement of SKYACTIV technology – engines, body, chassis and transmissions – the all-new Mazda CX-3 provides the responsive handling and spirited driving experience that Mazda has come to be recognised for. Embodying Mazda’s Defy Convention ethos, the all-new Mazda CX-3 is designed to set new standards in the small SUV sector by offering levels of efficiency, style, handling, refinement and equipment not yet seen in this rapidly growing sector.
