Weather and road conditions can change in an instant. That’s why Mazda’s available smart predictive i-ACTIV AWD® all-wheel drive system is always on alert, monitoring conditions and ready to adjust power delivery to help give you optimal traction before your wheels can slip.
By constantly monitoring everything from outside temperature to throttle input and braking patterns, available i-ACTIV AWD® predicts when all-wheel drive might be needed. Then it preemptively optimizes torque distribution to help curb traction loss.
Even when the weather’s perfect, available i-ACTIV AWD® helps stabilize and improve the CX-3’s overall road grip. While driving down a winding hill or simply making a sharp turn, the technology senses changes in steering effort caused by a puddle or some loose gravel and distributes torque more evenly.
Mazda was the first automaker to use ultra-high tensile-strength steel in a production vehicle. The SKYACTIV®-Body in the Mazda CX-3 continues to incorporate this light-but-strong steel in critical areas to help make it lighter than normal, yet stiffer and stronger.
The CX-3 is a study in striking, well-balanced design proportions. From its rich contours to its athletic silhouette. Making everything about the CX-3’s overall form appear agile yet firmly planted to the ground. It’s the essence of KODO design: simple lines that express energy and movement. Even at a standstill.
The interior of the CX-3 expresses the vehicle’s unique character. Colors and fabrics are combined in unexpected ways to inspire a sense of sporty refinement. On select models, carefully crafted lines of stitching create a feeling that’s solid and rich. Everywhere you look, clean lines and modern design help eliminate distraction, so you can focus on what matters most—driving.

At your feet, even the CX-3’s most basic features, like foot pedals, are engineered to make driving effortless and enjoyable. Symmetrically placed to align with the driver’s centerline, each pedal is specifically designed for easier and more precise control and stability—all to help eliminate foot fatigue on longer drives.
The moment you sit down in the CX-3, you’re elevated in a driver-centric cabin, designed to expand your visibility of the world around you. The dash features futuristic-looking analog dials and a full-color display screen. Every detail of the CX-3 makes it feel like a second home—and driving feel like second nature.
Mazda warrants that new Mazda cars and trucks will be free of defects with normal use and prescribed maintenance for 36 months or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. Ordinary maintenance items or adjustments, parts subject to normal wear and replacement and certain other items are excluded. This transferable "limited warranty" is included on all new Mazda vehicles sold and serviced in the United States.
At speeds above 19 mph, available Distance Recognition Support System measures the distance between your vehicle and the one ahead and recommends a comfortable following distance. If your vehicle approaches this distance, a warning light illuminates.
This available system is designed to help you see around corners at night. As you turn into a corner, the headlights pivot up to 15 degrees in the direction of your turn, improving visibility and allowing you to spot potential hazards ahead.
