Chronology
SuccessorMazda CX-30 (United States and Europe)

The Mazda CX-3 is a subcompact crossover SUV (B-segment) manufactured by Mazda. Based on the same platform as the third-generation Mazda2, it was revealed on November 19, 2014 ahead of the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show as a production vehicle for the 2016 model year.[8]

Since mid-2022, the production in Japan was shifted to Mexico and Thailand. Since then, sales of the CX-3 in the Japanese market are served by imported units from Thailand.[9][10]

Markets

United States

CX-3 sales began in the United States in the end of 2015, as a model for 2016. It replaced the similar Mazda2 subcompact in the market in North America.[11]

Across the model lineup, power is provided by an updated (2018) 2.0-litre Skyactiv-G engine that develops 146 bhp (109 kW) and 148 lb ft (201 Nm) of torque.[12] It is connected to a six speed automatic transmission that can be paired to an optional all wheel drive system.

In the United States, the entry level CX-3 Sport, Touring and Grand Touring all feature cruise control, power windows/lock, and a 60/40 split folding rear seat. Other highlights include a rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and an infotainment system, Mazda Connect, with a 7-inch display as standard equipment.[13]

For the 2020 model year in the United States, the Touring and Grand Touring trim levels were dropped in order to make room for the Mazda CX-30 leaving only the base Sport trim, with AWD being the only option. Newly standard equipment for the Sport trim include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as the i-Activesense safety suite.[14]

The CX-3 was discontinued in United States for 2022, marking 2021 as the final model year. It was effectively replaced by the Mazda CX-30, which was introduced in 2020.[15][16]

Asia

In Asia, the CX-3 is sold in countries such as Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines and Indonesia, and was introduced progressively from 2016. Similarly, the CX-3 is offered with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder gasoline engine or a 1.5-litre Skyactiv-D diesel engine.

Europe

CX-3 sales in Europe ended in December 2021.[16]

Facelift

The CX-3 received a minor facelift in 2018 including a new split horizontal chrome grille design, foglamps, tail lamps, minor tweaks to the chassis, added safety features, centre console armrest and replaced the manual handbrake with electric parking brakes.[17]

Starting from 23 April 2020, Mazda added a 1.5-litre four-cylinder Skyactiv-G petrol engine option, for the market in Japan.[18] The engine option was also introduced in Indonesia on 29 March 2021,[19] in Egypt on 24 April 2021[20] and in Singapore from June 2021.[21] In Malaysia, the 1.5-litre four-cylinder Skyactiv-G petrol engine option was introduced on 7 September 2022.[22]

Powertrain

The CX-3 is offered with an array of engines, such as a 1.5-litre and 2.0-litre four-cylinder Skyactiv-G gasoline engine, and a 1.5-litre Skyactiv-D diesel engine.[23]
