Inspiring Everyday Adventures
For 2021, we’ve refined the agile and versatile CX-3 to offer you a more rewarding driving experience, one that adapts to every journey that you take.
i-Activ AWD† delivers a surefooted solution for Canada’s varied terrain and weather conditions. Using sensors to monitor everything from outside temperature and windshield wipers, which are used for acceleration and braking patterns, i-Activ AWD not only forecasts when you’ll need better road grip, but also readies your CX-3 to deliver the traction you need at the precise moment you need it.
i-Activ AWD monitors driving conditions 200 times per second – everything from steering angle to exterior temperature to predict and adapt to driving conditions.
Torque is transferred to the rear wheels to deliver more traction at the moment it is needed most.
Exceptionally Fuel Efficient
By ensuring optimal distribution of torque and minimizing drivetrain energy loss, fuel is only used to power i-Activ AWD when necessary.
Every aspect of our vehicles, from the body construction to engine technology, is designed to work together to maximize efficiency and deliver exceptional driving dynamics.
A Smoother Ride
G-Vectoring Control creates a feeling of oneness between you, your vehicle, and the road. By subtly shifting the car’s weight in turns, it improves traction and handling for a smoother, more confident driving experience.
Precision and Control
Irregularities in the road can cause vehicles to move in unexpected ways, forcing the driver to make steering corrections. With GVC, your CX-3 requires fewer adjustments. The result is more precise steering and control.
Artistry in Motion
A work of art in both style and function, every Mazda embraces our “less is more” design philosophy, placing everything essential within arms’ reach so you can better connect to your journey.
The elevated driving experience of the CX-3 begins with its refined interior, with premium detailing and minimalist aesthetics offering you sophistication through simplicity. With luxurious style and comfort, you and your passengers can better connect to your journey.
Traditional Japanese aesthetics favour minimal yet captivating designs. Lines that reflect light and shadow give the CX-3 a sense of motion, even at a standstill.
7-speaker Bose Premium Sound System
The CX-3’s sound system creates a captivating experience. Speakers are placed strategically around the cabin to deliver high-quality, clear audio at both low and high volumes. Together with Bose, we’ve set the stage for audio that is worlds away from anything you’ve heard before.
Staying connected to your world is simple, with a 7" colour display and infotainment system. Connect to Android AutoTM and access your phone, messages and music. Or use Apple CarPlayTM to connect your iPhone to access Apple Maps, Apple Music and Siri.
